Visual Assistant - Customizable Magnetic Eyewear System

$11,680

 VISUAL ASSISTANT (VA) is the most customizable eye-wear system with a variety of polarized magnetic clip-on filters intended to assist and protect your eyesight in any weather condition. That includes the sun, rain, smog, snow, dusk, sunset or sunrise.

VA glasses allows you to choose the right filter in seconds without becoming distracting from the road.

Buying a VA frame provides you with not only a prescription-ready eyewear frame, but a choice of a variety of interchangeable polarized sunscreen filters as well as a filter for bad weather conditions. 

If you broke or lost any parts of your system - you can easily order any part you need from our online store as well as any additional new clip-ons. All new clip-on filters will always be compatible with our one universal VA frame!

90% of all the information that our senses deliver to us is picked up via our eyesight. More interestingly, 60% of people wear glasses, contact lenses or both. 

FACT: More than 1 million car accidents occur each year in the United States alone - with poor eyesight being identified as the sole cause for nearly 20% of all auto accidents. 

VISUAL ASSISTANT significantly improves one's driving conditions by providing the most versatile optical frame that can be easily customized for any type of driving environment. 

VISUAL ASSISTANT uses strong magnets to easily attach clip-on filters that provide perfect high definition vision, protection from the sun and most importantly - increased perception of your surroundings on the road in bad weather conditions. 

VA glasses are prescription-ready. Just take them into your optometrist and they will be able to add prescription lenses into your VA frame for you (read our FAQs). 

In the frame and clip-on filters are embedded small but strong magnets that provide an instant, convenient and reliable attachment of the clip-on filter onto the VA frame

VISUAL ASSISTANT will instantly attach the clip-on and can be changed with a single hand in order to ensure your attention is always on the road. 

Entering a tunnel or a parking garage? Quickly remove your clip-on to regain the appropriate vision necessary for whatever environment you may be in!

(VA glasses do use magnets. If you have any condition that precludes using magnets near your head or body, you should talk to your doctor)

We all know what it's like to drive with obstructed vision due to extreme weather conditions. VISUAL ASSISTANT eliminates this type of dangerous and distracted driving that claims the lives of so many people each year.

Our versatile optic frame can be instantly customized via polarized magnetic clip-ons that are used to adapt it to any environment you may find yourself in.

VISUAL ASSISTANT offers several unique filters created for different weather environments.

As stated above, the filters can quickly be swapped out with each other with a single hand.

Unlike competitors, VA’s filters fit the single frame, eliminating the need to purchase additional frame shapes and sizes. 

VISUAL ASSISTANT features a universal black squared frame with a bridge in the form of a keyhole that fits virtually every customer. 

Just take an eye exam and order lenses with your prescription to fit the VA frame.

While it is true that the VA frame is available in one universal style, the variety of magnetic & polarized clip-ons available to be installed makes VISUAL ASSISTANT one of the most customizable pair of sunglasses ever to hit the market. 

Each filter is unique in terms of both color and the degree of dimming that it offers. As different environments & individual preferences call for different filters, these clip-ons allow VISUAL ASSISTANT to be the only versatile sunglasses you’ll ever need.

Each clip-on filter can be purchased separately from our website directly. 

We are also working on expanding the list of clip-on filters! All new filters will be compatible with the VA frame and will be available for purchase separately. 

The following 6 colors will be available for VA glasses at launch (expected)*: 

Each clip-on is equipped with sun-protection, UV-protection, and polarization, with the exception of those clip-ons made for smog and bad weather conditions.

The smog & bad weather clip-on (the yellow lens tint) makes your environment appear brighter and is commonly used in low-light conditions. These lens’ tint block blue light, reduce glare, enhance contrast and depth perception, which make them helpful for overcast, hazy and foggy conditions. 

(*The colors could be different from the picture. Final color schemes will be provided in updates. Your colors of clip-on lenses will be selected in a survey that will be sent out at the end of the campaign.) 

VISUAL ASSISTANT features a universal black squared frame with a bridge in the form of a keyhole that fits virtually every customer. 

 Poly-carbonate lenses are the perfect choice for driving, cycling and sports activities. They are valued for exceptional durability, lightness, optical transparency and large tolerance of high temperatures. They offer 100% protection from UV rays. 

Polarized lenses are the most high-tech type of lens product that allow you to equip your eyes with maximum protection from excessive sunlight and reflected light.

Despite all of the known benefits we receive from the sun, its light can still cause serious vision problems. Sunlight reflecting off of smooth water, snow or flat roads can create glare which is not only annoying but can often be dangerous. Blinding sun glare can cause accidents, snow blindness and can even give your eyes sunburn.  

Thankfully, polarized lenses can shield you against the dangers of intense glare.

Polarized lenses effectively block glare resulting from light reflecting from flat and smooth surfaces. Consequently, they provide increased transparency of vision. Polarized sunglasses can be helpful for driving, because they reduce glare-causing reflections from flat surfaces, such as the hood of the car or the road's surface.

Polarized lenses not only reduce glare, they make images appear sharper and clearer, increasing visual clarity and comfort

One of the main advantages of polarizing lenses is the effect of reducing eye strain. Since most harmful rays of light are blocked, the eyes strain less and their fatigue decreases.  Eye strain often leads to headaches and a general deterioration of well-being.

Whether you spend your time driving or jogging, in-line skating or mountain biking - polarized sunglasses are the right choice to help you enjoy your life outdoors.

In terms of comfort, polarizing lenses are superior to ordinary sunglasses, which, although they protect the eyes from bright sunlight, do not remove the interfering glitter.

Only the most high-quality, lightweight and safe materials are used for the production of VA Glasses, ensuring maximum comfort for long periods of wear. There are no hooks or other heavy constructions to the frame. 

VISUAL ASSISTANT is made of ULTEM® (Polyetherimide Plastic) - an extremely durable material that offers exceptional thermal-resistance, stiffness and resistance to chemicals. This material is Eco-friendly, light, and flexible.

Each filter will be available for purchase individually from our website. You will never have to overpay for bundles with filters you don’t need to replace your current one.  

Each filter is unique in terms of both color and the degree of dimming that it offers. As different environments  & individual preferences call for different filters, these clip-ons allow VISUAL ASSISTANT to be the only versatile sunglasses you’ll ever need.   

Broke the frame or lost your favorite clip-on filter? 

Do you want to try a new lens color? 

With VA glasses it's not a problem!

Each clip-on filter and a frame are available for order separately directly to a customer worldwide from VA online-store!

We understand that discovering the best frame is an intimate & personal experience, so if you don't love your glasses for whatever reason, send them back for a full refund.

Shipping:

United States & Canada: $10

Rest of the World: $30

 We are still working on the final list of clip-on color tints. Any additional color in the future will be compatible to VA frame and can be purchased separately from VISUAL ASSISTANT online store. 


Our first campaign with brand Eclipse sunglasses was unsuccessful.  We did the best to bring same product for the second time with a new brand and a better pricing structure.  We need your support to bring it to life! 

You can look at our first campaign by clicking this picture

We have new ideas with both frame shapes and clip-ons. We understand that every person has different preferences like warm or cold, dark or light tints or just different color tastes.

We are working on new tints which will be available on our online store and compatible with the  VA frame.

All our customers will be updated with all the news about VISUAL ASSISTANT

Risks and challenges

It is possible that your prescription lenses are too thick and incompatible with the VA frame - your order will always be eligible for return with a full refund.

FULFILLMENT: It is possible that a supplier could miss a deadline or shipments to become lost during transit; thus, resulting in delays. While we will always do our best to avoid this type of scenario, it is small possibility to experience a delay in receiving your Visual Assistant purchase.
