Silhouette was recently awarded the “EyeVote Readers’ Choice Award” from Jobson, a specialised American publishing company, after being voted the best brand in prescription eyewear.

More than 2,400 opticians, optometrists and other optical experts participated in the selection of the top eyewear brand in the autumn of 2009 on 2020mag.com – the online platform of the renowned American publication 20/20 – and on Vision Monday – found at visionmonday.com.

The results in the six categories were announced at the end of 2009. Much to Silhouette’s delight, the American eye care professionals voted the Silhouette brand, which specializes in tailored rimless eyewear, their favourite.

Silhouette received the most votes, making it the winner of the EyeVote Reader’s Choice Award in the category of “prescription eyewear”.

The EyeVote Readers’ Choice Award was announced in 2009 for the first time. About 2,400 participants had one month to submit votes in six categories for their favourite optical brands and products of the year.

“For us, who dedicate our lives to developing concepts and applying our love for detail to produce our eyewear, which is largely made by hand, this award is a delightful affirmation of our strategy. We place a lot of value in having personal contact with eye care professionals, offering top quality, Made in Austria, and providing the highest level of service possible. This constellation is our recipe for success. We would like to thank all who have recognised its value and supported us in the EyeVote Readers’ Choice Award – as well as in other awards – and promise to continue to do justice to the honour bestowed upon us”, declared Arnold and Klaus Schmied, the two directors and co-owners of the family-owned Silhouette International, in response to the award.
