A remarkable, convenient & space-saving invention 

OptiSource is now the exclusive distributor of the Swinger® brand mirror. This two-sided, shatter-proof acrylic mirror features a 10-ft. retractable cord mechanism that can easily be installed to any drywall or drop ceilings. Swinger® allows optical stores to eliminate tabletop mirrors, freeing up their valuable counter space. The retractable cord allows the patient to adjust the mirror to the perfect height with a simple pull-down or push-up motion and to freely move it closer or further for their perfect focal distance. When not in use, the mirror is pushed up, out of the way. The Swinger® mirror is always available when you need it and out of the way when you don’t.

“I got tired of running around my store asking: where are my mirrors?” states Kelly Shaffer, inventor of the Swinger® mirror and an Optician for nearly 30 years. “Besides adding the convenience and cool-factor to my store, I also gained back my valuable counter space to make more frames visible, unimpeded by bulky stand mirrors.” Her recent partnership with OptiSource is bringing this elegantly designed mirror to optical stores around the world. “After a soft launch at Vision Expo West this year, we saw firsthand how attendees were instantly captivated by the concept and recognized the convenience and space-saving solution this mirror could bring to their optical stores” states Daryl Squicciarini, president of OptiSource.
