In epic partnership, Inspecs USA and VISION EASE debut O’Neill Sunglasses with Coppertone Polarized Technology
RAMSEY, MINN. & CLEARWATER, FLA. (Sept. 16, 2015) – To deliver advanced sun protection in attention-grabbing frames, VISION EASE introduces its first frame and lens package.
Developed in partnership with Inspecs USA and powerhouse sun and surf apparel brand, O’Neill, the premium polarized sunglasses deliver the exceptional UV and blue light protection of Coppertone Polarized Lenses in modern frames designed by O’Neill.
The sunglass package is offered in plano and prescription, featuring 14 frame styles in multiple colors and five lens color options. Frames and lenses can be paired in any combination so consumers can design their own look in their prescription sunwear.
“This package delivers advanced eye-health protection, style and performance from two classic and trusted brands,” said Kari Knapp, senior marketing manager with VISION EASE. “Retailers now have a better option for customers who want both a frame that looks great and advanced lens technology that blocks 100 percent of UVA/UVB rays and filters harmful blue light.”
Coppertone Polarized Lenses from VISION EASE carry the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. The premium polycarbonate lenses are ideal for active consumers because they are lightweight and impact-resistant, and polarized for superior glare protection. O’Neill frames are available in traditional, aviator and wrap styles.
“We embrace the sun and outdoors, but know that protecting our eyes and skin is critical for our long-term health so we can continue to enjoy the sports we love,” said Vance Wright, president at Inspecs USA. “By partnering with Coppertone Polarized Lenses, we were able to create a product that looks great and enhances vision and clarity, all while protecting our eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.”
The prescription sunglasses are offered as single vision and progressive high definition digital lens designs and are available for wrap frame styles. They are available in +3.00 to -3.00 total power, with a 6 or 8 base lens determined by frame style.
Eye care professionals interested in carrying the O’Neill Sunglasses with Coppertone Polarized Technology should contact their VISION EASE or Inspecs USA sales representative. To view the line, visit www.coppertonelenses.com/oneillframepackages.
