Chemistrie sunglasses are custom made polarized sunglasses that magnetically "click" onto your prescription eyewear. Think clip-on, but with all of the coolness and none of the dorkiness.
The lenses are custom cut to the exact shape of the frames, and then small strong magnets are built into both your prescription lenses and the sun lenses. The sunglasses are built to complement the color of your frame as well as match curvature of your prescription lenses. The result is a truly custom product that accompanies your eyewear so well it looks like it came with it, and clicks on and off with ease.
Three months ago I finally added the excellent Chemistrie magnetic sunglasses system to our shop. I had been aware of these since 2009 and wanted them, but at that time only a few optical labs in the country had the technology to make them. I only trust a couple excellent labs to run my jobs, and at the time they did not make Chemistrie. But as of May 2011 my favorite custom lab added the equipment and now makes Chemistrie, and I started putting them on my customers immediately.
It's hard to understand how elegant a sun solution these are until one sees them and handles them in person. I have been dealing with traditional clip-ons, even expensive custom made ones, for years, and have never liked them. These are easy to put on, easy to take off, slim and sleek, and durable. They what everyone wants from clip-ons, but what no other clip-on has ever been able to deliver.
Check out my photo album of actual customer Chemistrie sunglasses I have made:
Chemistrie magnetic sunglasses are available with every pair of frames I have in the shop. I recommend them for everyone.
NEW: Chemistrie now has magnetic reading glasses and 3D lenses. If you don't like multifocals or don't like wearing reading glasses all the time, just click on the readers when you need them! Hate the uncomfortable (and grimy) 3D glasses they hand out at the movies? Bring your own and just click them onto your prescription glasses for perfect 3D entertainment.
COMING SOON: full magnetic click on progressive lenses!
