Domestic Buffalo horn is one of the earliest materials used to make eyewear. It is an organic by-product of domestic water buffalo farming and is sourced without any harm coming to the animals.
As with any other pair of Ballo, you can rock these horn frames witheither CR39 tinted lenses or fit them with your own prescription.

Most opticians will tell you they won't work with wooden frames as the frame will split.
We'll tell you different. At the core of every eyewood frame is a unique combination of recycled paper and off-cut timber, which are laminated together with a bio resin. This gives our frames durability and allows any pair of Ballo to be fit with prescription lenses.
