About

Have you ever gotten up after several hours of staring at your computer, TV, laptop, or mobile device screen… and felt absolutely blah for days afterward?

If you’re like most of us, you probably go through that to some degree just about every single day.

Think about it – when was the last time you went an entire day WITHOUT spending at least an hour in front of an illuminated screen? 

Weeks? Months? Maybe even a year or more?!

 The point is, all this time you’re spending looking at these devices – it’s wrecking your health!

Researchers have long suspected that light emitted from computers, TV, and mobile devices could decrease or even destroy vision over time.

In fact, the scientific community has even solidified a name for it - Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).

In other words, it scrambles your body’s ability to gear down at bedtime, and to gear up when the alarm clock goes off. 

Even when you finally drift off for a few hours, the impact on your central nervous system disrupts rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep phases… the part of your sleep cycle when your body replaces damaged cells and your brain “records” memories.

COMPUTER VISION SYNDROME AFFECTS EVERY PART OF YOUR HEALTH!

The American Optometric Association lists the most common symptoms of CVS as

  • eye strain
  • blurred vision
  • headaches
  • dry eyes
  • and neck
  • shoulder pain

I’ve suffered the effects of Computer Vision Syndrome myself, and I know how frustrating it can be. 

...

ONE DAY a friend told me about blue-light-blocking computer glasses.

The idea was, the materials and coatings used to make these lenses would block out blue light, and eliminate the brain fog, fatigue, and health risks of Computer Vision Syndrome.

WHAT I FOUND, THOUGH, WAS POOR QUALITY EYEWEAR AND RIDICULOUS PRICES!

I did come across some decent ones - Warby for ex. , but I did have to pay $195 with the Light Adaptive lenses for them, and they still used Polycarbonate lenses…  

For the most part though, all I found was junk. 

And because I'm in the industry

I KNOW we are being taken advantage of..

Most of these 

  • Are made with cheap plastic materials 
  •  Do not effectively block blue light 
  • Look weird on your face - and people notice this even if they are too nice to say anything..
  • Lenses would show scratches and fingerprints after the very first use!

 And not only that… when I dug into the consumer reports, I found out that because of inferior materials and coatings, MANY of these computer glasses either:

· didn’t effectively block blue light rays at all; or

· blocked them in the wrong way, so that colors and shapes appeared distorted

THAT'S WHAT LED ME ON MY JOURNEY TO WESPECS.

To create the most effective, attractive, durable blue-light-blocking computer glasses on the market today, and to provide them to you at a reasonable investment. 


I can not tell you that this was a simple endeavor, even with the amount of experience I have… (My name is Omar btw, I have a long video below this campaign detailing my journey for more info)

I spent months contacting artisans and suppliers in The United States, Italy, and Japan who had the expertise, skill, and passion to join me on this mission.

What came out of it was the WeSpecs Light-Adaptive Digital Age Eyeglasses.

Engineered strength to protect you from accident or injury.

But what really makes WeSpecs. different is that we finely turned our production process to make THE BEST computer glasses at the absolute most affordable price by completely cutting out the middle man and going directly to the source.

On top of this, we absolutely STAND AGAINST what most of the resellers on Amazon and online are doing, and we want to bring an END to this practice!

They go DIRECTLY to ALIBABA, buy the cheapest frames, with cheap questionable (potentially dangerous) lenses, and sell it to you and me at a ridiculous markup!


I was always inspired by the minimalistic and high quality products I found traveling throughout Tokyo. Here’s me in Sabae, Japan home of the first Titanium Eyewear ever produced.

In Japan, they never stop working after “5”. They are always “going”. I named these “5 2 9” (okay I’m terrible with names) because your life consists of what you do after your regular “9 to 5” work hours - if this means Netflix or Social Media, then by all means, and you shouldn’t suffer for it. 

The second design is named Flux - meaning “change” - the only thing I know to be true is that change is constant - and that if we embrace it, we could make the best of it - I hope by bringing higher quality eyewear to the market, others are inspired to bring even more innovative and price friendly products to Kickstarter, and as a result we can all change and be inspired for the better. 

This model is part of our stretch goals - Whatever your Muse is in life, it keeps you going

The prototypes show a pretty large eye frame, and during mass production we plan to fix this so that they remain unique, but still contour  and achieve the same effects as the Flux and 529 as far as “fit” is concerned.

NOW IT'S TIME TO TAKE THIS MOVEMENT GLOBAL !

Now that we’ve (it took a solid team to get this going) finally perfected these feather-light, attractive blue-light-blocking glasses, we’re gearing up to eliminate Computer Vision Syndrome for good.

We’re looking for people like you who want to be part of our movement to get top-quality blue-light protection into the hands of the millions who need it. 

I hope that after you compare the quality of your WeSpecs, and the $295 frames out there, your expectations will be changed forever and bigger brands will be forced to offer better quality and lower prices

We want to keep the needle moving in a positive direction. And we’ve got some impressive rewards to thank you for your support.

Take a look at the simple reward structure and become part of the WeSpecs movement now!

We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what we see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: The manufacturer has lined up and we have quality assurance people on site during production. It’s really necessary to have boots on the ground and here’s me visiting the quality inspection team I have come to trust (after experiencing some really harsh burns first hand). 

FULFILLMENT: 

Sometimes things get a bit crazy and stuff happens that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, customs clearance or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. 

We are using the worlds NUMBER 1 Crowdfunding Fulfillment Team in Asia to get the wespecs  to you.  

This is where many Kickstarter Projects fail, and where many promises went unfulfilled - this is not the approach we can afford to take. 

We took the added step to pass a thorough 7-point review by Floship, the worlds number 1 crowdfunding fulfillment company. 

This certificate displays that we have an efficient and reliable logistics plan to deliver the WeSpecs from the factory to you.

CERTIFIED By The World's Number 1 in Crowdfunding Fulfillment 

We Cannot mark as gift, this is illegal, so we will not be able to do this.

As many of you know, Canadian Customs are very strict on products imported into Canada. All products over Canadian $25 are subject to duties and GST or Vat tax. Our invoices are in U.S. dollars.

Here's a link to find the CBSA offices where you can actually go and do the clearance, and save some significant dollars:

http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/do-rb/services/lvs-efv-eng.html

Within 24 hours of your order being shipped you will receive a tracking link with your shipping details. When you receive your tracking #, please keep an eye out for the package. We use a shared post shipping method to have your order delivered at an affordable price.

Your order will ship out from our shipping facility in Los Angeles or the Shenzhen/Hong Kong with a major shipping company. Your order will be handled by UPS, USPS, or DHL up to entry of your country. Once your order enters your country your order will be handed off to your local post office for final delivery. International transit will have a 7-21 Business day delivery time. U.S Domestic shipments will take 3-5 business days.

Risks and challenges

If by chance during our Product Quality inspections we find the factory DID NOT perform to our strict requirements, then our manufacturing production will be delayed between 2-3 weeks to give adequate time for the factory to fix any issues we deemed necessary to fix before sending the finished product to you.
