Got questions? Here are the answers…
FRAME & LENSES
What Are Your Frames Made Out Of?
Our colored frames are made of premium cellulose acetate. Cellulose acetate can be produced in glossy colors and beautiful patterns; it also keeps its shape and sheen with age. We use some of the most sturdy hinges on the market to achieve lasting durability. We use recycled material for our solid colored frames.
Our metal frames are made of ultra-light stainless steel. A special nose pad offers a soft, anti-slip fit that is virtually pressure-free. For a final touch, we’ve used an innovative ‘Ion Plating’ technique that produces a solid durability, strength, and color richness.
Injection (Plastic) Frames:
Our high quality injection (plastic) frames are ultra light and with soft-touch coating for maximum comfort.
What Are Your Lenses Made Out Of?
CR 39 SUNGLASS LENSESES
We only use top quality 100% UV protection, Category 3, CR39 sunglass lenses in TIMELESS and MANHATTAN COLLECTIONS. CR39 sunglass lenses are much lighter compared to mineral lenses and much more impact resistant. These type of lenses are the ultimate in protection, comfort and performance in the sun.
POLYCARBONATE SUNGLASS LENSESES
We use 100%UV Protection, Category 3, Polycarbonate lenses in BROOKLYN COLLECTION. Polycarbonate lenses are highly resistant to impact, and are 6 times stronger than glass, making them ideal for sports glasses. Lightweight and thinner than glass lenses, polycarbonate is more comfortable to wear during physical activities such as driving, biking, water sports activities, etc..
POLARIZED SUNGLASS LENSESES
Polarized lenses are coated with a special film that helps reduce glare. Glare is caused when light from the sun is reflected off of water or a solid surface. By neutralizing glare, polarized lenses help you see objects more clearly, sharper and clearer, increasing visual clarity and comfort, and also help reduce the harmful effects of UV light.
BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION LENSESES
We use special Polycarbonate lenses filtering out 30% of the blue light emitted by digital devices that you use everyday, such as mobile phones, tablets, computer screens.
WHY DO WE NEED INCREASED UV PROTECTION?
Wearing sunglasses causes your pupils to dilate reflexively in order to let more light into your eyes. If your sunglasses don’t provide 100% UVA and UVB protection, you risk exposure to increased levels of the damaging rays that can cause macular degeneration, cataracts, and vision loss. Quality lenses offer complete and permanent UV protection to keep your eyes safe and healthy.
How Are Your Production and Quality Standards?
In our factories, many high-end global fashion brands’ sunglasses are produced in world standards and sold to the markets such as USA, Japan and EU countries. We collaborate with top raw material manufacturers to identify the most innovative materials and techniques to ensure excellence in quality. We constantly put in quality control steps into our design and manufacturing process to ensure a perfect customer experience.
How Can You Offer Such High Quality Sunglasses At These Prices?
We are very proud of our frames and lenses, the only reason they cost less is because we use a business model to cut out the middleman in the supply chain. So we are different in two aspects: 1. We're independent and we create our own designs. We don't partner with licensing companies which control the market and keep prices artificially high. We refuse to charge outrageous prices for our frames. 2. Our e-commerce platform allows us to sell directly to our customers. We are very happy to be transferring the savings on to you!
Where Can I Find My Frame’s Measurements?
On each product page, the frame measurements are listed as three numbers. The first number refers to the width of one lens in millimetres, the second number to the width of the bridge, and the third to the length of one of the temple arms.
Most glasses (including all of Eye Connection frames) have these numbers printed on the inside of the temple arm.
How To Choose Best Fit For Me?
Follow the example above - The three numbers indicating the size of the frame are: 50-20-140. Use these numbers to shop on our website. Here are a few tips to help you choose your best fit: The bridge size is very important! If you choose a wide bridge and you have a narrow nose your glasses will be worn pretty low on your nose and vice versa. If you think you have a larger than average head, you should purchase frames with a minimum temple length of 140mm. The total frame width measure is a good indication of how large the whole frame will look on you. Simply grab a ruler, go to your mirror, and compare the total frame width to the width of your face. This will show you whether the frames are a good size for your face.
