About

Our team have developed the world first photochromic bi focal sports / general use sunglass that we would love to bring to market with the assistance of Kickstarter.

The PHOTOCHROMIC lens darkens or lightens depending on available UV light. The high impact resistant LEXAN lens was originally created for the serious cyclist who may ride before dawn and then into full sunlight. The lenses are available in two options Clear (CAT0) which darken to Grey (CAT2) in full sun and,  High Definition Amber (Cat2) which darkens to (CAT3) in full sun.

 DO YOU NEED GLASSES TO READ !! This will excite you

 The bi - focal reader option, are moulded discretely into the rear of the lens and when being worn are not evident to those around.. Lens power options are +1.50, +2.00 and +2.50

These lenses enable the wearer (who is long sited) to read instrumentation or printed matter without the inconvenience of having to change glasses.

The super light weight (25gms or .85oz) hybrid TR90 frame has adjustable nose pieces for maximum comfort and fit for every face and nose shape. The nose piece when manually narrowed allows the frame to sit away from the face in hot or humid conditions, or when widened allows the glasses to sit closer to the face. The flexible temples are dual moulded with a non slip material ensuring maximum insurance against slipping in even the most vigorous activities.

Ideal for Motorcyclists.

Riding a motorcycle can have it's own issues with wearing sunglasses and one of the main ones is having a frame that fits comfortably under a full or open face helmet. (many frames put pressure on the wearers temples creating headaches).It can also be an issue trying to wear sunglasses under a tinted full face visor.

Our solution is with our world first photochromic or photochromic bi focal lenses. The Clear (Cat 0) lens is ideal for night time or low light riding, it then darkens slightly in full sun but when you raise the visor it will darken to (Cat 2) - making them ideal for riding 24 hours per day. The high definition amber lens starts at (Cat 2) in low or no light and darkens to (Cat 3) for all day use.

The Optional bi - focal reader in +1.50, +2.00 or +2.50 enable those who wear glasses to read to view their instrumentation or read a menu, map etc when they get off their bike. Eliminating the need to carry a second pair of glasses.

The TR90 frame has a high wrap and the Lexan high impact 8 base lens assists in the elimination of wind and eye damage from flying debris. The flexible temples follow the shape of the wearer's head, and assist in the elimination of pressure points under the helmet.

When the lens is at full tint the bi - focal reader is not obvious to anybody other than the wearer.

Ideal for the Driver.

This world first photochromic bi  focal driving lens gives full UVA and UVB protection. Generally because car windows are tinted and have UV protection the lens stays lighter, but once you exit the car it will darken to it's maximum tint in around 30 seconds.

The bi  focal lens allows you to read you GPS, car stereo or clock while driving, or your phone, a map or other reading matter once you have reached your desitnation without the need to look everywhere for you readers.

We recommend the amber photochromic as it gives heightened definition in all conditions even rain and snow.

Our TR90 frame is adjustable to suit all head and face shapes giving the driver versatile comfortable eyewear.

Ideal for Golfers.

The high definition lens is ideal for golf. The photochromic lens will lighten or darken depending on conditions or whether or not you are playing in the shaded tree line or in full sun on the fairway. The high definition lens will make finding your golf balls in shade or in leaf litter easier.

The super light  weight frame makes them a breeze to wear, the non slip adjustable nose piece and non slip temples will hold them in placing during the wildest air swing or while addressing the ball. For those who may be challenged with their close up vision - your score card will always be indisputable.

The high impact Lexan photochromic lenses adjusts in tint to available UV light, making them ideal in any conditions and protect the eyes from branches, flying debris or bugs.

Ideal for the Worker or general use.

The glasses are ideal to be worn just about any where. If you are continually moving from inside to outside for whatever reason the glasses will adjust in tint. The frame is light enough and the non - slip nose pads and temples make them OK to be working in the most awkward or positions without having to adjust them.

So overall our new sunglass designs can be beneficial to all and if we reach our target we will introduce a narrower model more suited to smaller or narrower face shapes. We look forward to having you on our journey in assisting us to bring our unique product to the world.
