The Morpheye Eyewear system is a magnetic snap concept using a breakthrough fabrication method to create a thin, lightweight, and strong magnetic attachment that snaps on to a titanium base frame, allowing you to transform your eyewear to match your clothes and environment. 

Snap on the sunglasses attachment when going outside or snap on a colored frame to match your outfit when you dress up for the next event. These aren't your grandma's glasses.

Morpheye Eyewear will minimize and modernize your wardrobe by eliminating the need for multiple frames to fit your life. 

          
           

 Choose any of the five shapes!

Titanium is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-corrosive which is perfect wearing all day, everyday. The lightweight and durability factors also make titanium the best choice for these versatile frames. Titanium is 40% lighter and as strong as traditional steel. These frames have great flexibility and memory, which is important for strength and longevity.

With the durability of titanium we are able to do cool things like the fish skeleton cut on the ear piece. This allows you to create your own custom fit with your bare hands. Bend the ear pieces to contour to the shape of your ears and head.

Revolutionary manufacturing methods made Morpheye Magnetic Snaps possible. These lightweight and colorfully designed shells, magnetically snap onto the front of the Morpheye frame. They can quickly change the look and function of your eyewear.

All Snap colors and textures come in all five frame shapes!

All varieties of sunglass lenses can be placed into any Snap.

Whether you leave them in the sun of your car or accidentally sit on your Snaps, the nylon material will hold its shape unlike acetate frames. Paired with neodymium magnets to connect them to the frames, they will not fall off in any outdoor activity.

The manufacturing process is only found in the Morpheye factory and is the secret to the thin Snaps. We wanted to create a frame material that would be light, thin and durable so you can carry them in your pocket without a care. This material didn’t exist in the market, so we created it.

No more stacking cheap 3D theater frames on top of your Rx glasses. With a simple Snap, you can comfortably wear your own Morpheye frames and watch the latest movie in 3D. 

Add on or trade out one of your Sunglasses Snaps for the 3D Movie Package and you will get two 3D Snaps built for RealD and IMAX 3D movies. The two Snaps come in a standard black color. Add on this package for $25.

Overexposure to blue light can lead to eye strain, headaches and disruption of the natural sleep cycle. The lens of the Morpheye Base Frame has an included blue light filter to provide you a better digital screen viewing experience all day and long into the night. This will help you stay focused on your work for longer time periods.

Included in every reward package are free single-vision prescriptions up to +/- 3.0. Visit any optometrist to get your prescription and we will fill it once the campaign ends. Our lenses are made from the high quality CR39. This material is half as heavy as glass, far less likely to shatter and has optical quality nearly as good as glass. After +/- 3.0 there will be $20 upgrade fee because we will have to choose a high index lens that is much thinner than the standard lens and is meant for higher prescriptions.

For more information about prescriptions please visit our FAQ section.

You wear sunscreen when you go outside so why not wear eye protection? Ultraviolet light can be a major cause of eye damage. It is important that you shield your eyes and prevent UV damage. Sometimes you don’t always have sunglasses on you and that is why the base frame lenses have 100% UV protection. Instead of carrying eyeglasses and sunglasses you can carry Morpheye Eyewear and a Snap to save space. Choose between 10 different lens colors.

          
          

Tom was formerly was a computer programmer and network engineer, but after having worked in the computer world for 10 years he craved a different path. In 2005, he started his own wholesale eyewear company and has been working hard at it ever since.

Being in the eyewear industry for a long time, Tom has seen many products and trends, but he has yet to find a product that met his needs, so he built them. Tom has a high prescription and in order to go from indoors to outdoors he either had to use transitions, which he never liked or switching to prescription sunglasses, which he would have to carry with him everywhere. This is why he created Morpheye. By combining never seen before lightweight material and powerful magnets, Tom can now wear one comfortable frame and quickly turn them into sunglasses with a quick Snap.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing Risk
The MLC material can be produced with precision and quality only by creating a mold. With the product line of 5 frame shapes, 5 different molds are needed to create enough selections to form a viable collection for the consumers to purchase.
The mold creation is very expensive. Without enough sales to support the initial investment, it is very risky to make the molds unless we have enough marketing support from consumers.

Shipping Risk
Because of the wide array of selections and the multiple fronts that a typical package will include, proper packaging and storage system must be developed. The packaging should be attractive and layout in a way for the consumer to get excited to receive. The packaging requires setup charge and also there is a minimum quantity needed for manufacturing.
