Smith Sunglasses saved my weekend.

Posted by LarumD on

For a month now my friend David (whom I also work with) has been asking me when we would be selling the Smith Sunglasses. I am proud to announce that we have them. I can see why he was so pumped about it. Not only do they look sharp but to see through them explains everything. I’m not saying looking cool isn’t important, but now that I work with eye-wear, optical quality is very important. So I will explain.

One of the perks of working with sunglasses is that I get first dibs. I borrowed them and I wore them over the weekend. Smith Boardwalk SunglassesCan I just say this? I rocked them. And people noticed. People asked me about them. Okay so that was my first test. But when I looked through them……..there it is. The lenses made everything sharper. My depth perception seemed better too. Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively-curved lens causing it to bend or distort an objects true size or position. But their TLT (Tapered Lens Technology) corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center towards the out edges. What you see is what you get!

I had chosen the Smith Boardwalk frames and I am excited to say that Smith Optics has a lifetime warranty on their products, and for a klutz like me, that weighs heavy. They stand by their products and so do I. I’ll stop raving now, get a pair and see for yourself.
