[ClickPress, Fri Mar 04 2005] Houston, TX -- The founders of Houston-based company FramesDirect.com introduce a patented new online technology for finding eyeglasses, the FrameFinder Virtual Try-On System.
By way of a highly complex Biometric algorithm, Doctors of Optometry Guy Hodgson and Dhavid Cooper have created a system for trying on eyeglasses from the convenience of a personal computer anywhere in the world. By uploading a photo to www.framefinder.com and using the guided four-step process, customers can “try on” over 13,000 frames within a matter of minutes.
Using the Biometric algorithm and the patented FrameFinder Virtual Try-On System, customers are able to scale and size an uploaded image to accurately represent face size and proportion with regard to the actual size of the eyeglasses so that a user can ‘try on’ eye wear online.
According to face shape, users of FrameFinder have the option to search for the ideal frame by manufacturer, frame type or frame shape, and additionally, can save their favorites in a file with their image to e-mail friends and family.
“It really is an amazing technology,” states Dr. Hodgson. “FrameFinder is truly unique because it’s by far the most advanced try-on system in this industry. It proportionately conforms an uploaded photo to a precise size, so that users get a true view of what they look like wearing glasses they’ve personally selected, but it’s all done from the convenience of their home or work computer.”
Dr.’s Cooper and Hodgson have been in practice in the Houston area for over 20 years, and founded FramesDirect.com in 1996, which is a global leader in online eyeglass sales. They have a Houston eye-care office and eye wear showroom, employing two additional licensed optometrists and a staff of experienced opticians. The websites can be viewed at www.framefinder.com and www.framesdirect.com and the office can be reached at 1-800-248-9427.
