  • Kaenon Sunglasses | It's All About That SR-91

    Kaenon Sunglasses, Kaenon Prescription Sunglasses

    Everything You Need to Know About Kaenon Sunglasses

    We had the opportunity to have a private, personal discussion with Kaenon’s Rx manager, Mark Vallejo. His passion for the brand is immediately apparent. Does he bleed Kaenon-orange? Well, we didn’t ask, but probably. What we did ask was: “If there was only one thing you would want us to know about Kaenon, what would it be?” His response: “SR-91.” This is not surprising for a world-class sunglass company. What makes Kaenon sunglasses truly great are their lenses.

    What are Kaenon SR-91 Lenses?

    SR-91 is their proprietary lens material. While a lot of companies do a great job with making a flagship lens out of lens materials that are readily available, Kaenon decided to start completely from scratch. They had such big plans, they could not trust anyone else to have a hand in their identity. What makes SR-91 so special? It combines the benefits of glass without any of the downsides. This means glass-comparable scratch resistance and clarity, yet still lightweight and impact resistant. You cannot reasonably ask for more; we promise because we know.

    A Common Theme in Every Pair of Kaenon Sunglasses

    All of their lenses utilize their SR-91 material. They are also all digitally surfaced, which means the best possible optics on top of the best possible optics. This, of course, includes all of their prescription lenses. That’s our favorite part. Not only are the optics crazy sharp, but it also helps to increase depth perception. He casually dropped a statistic of 30% of the LA Dodgers being Kaenon converts. He is able to brag about reports of players’ increased batting averages. We were impressed. How could we not be impressed?

    Kaenon Polarized Sunglasses at Their Best

    It was important for him that we knew that their innovation does not stop at the material. They created a polarizing filter called Glare86. You will only see this in SR-91 because it was engineered specifically for their lenses. While everyone else is using the same kind of polarizing filter, Kaenon makes their own. They are only interested in perfect. This is important because, since they created the lens material and the polarizing filter, they were able to make the bond between the two stronger than otherwise possible. That means no more cracking or peeling. That means no lens splitting at rimless drill mount holes. No more de-laminating!

    Kaenon is an exceedingly impressive sunglass company and we are honored to have them as one of our top picks for meeting your most important eyewear needs. Contact us and stay tuned for more insight into the brand and what they have to offer. We can hardly wait to tell you more!

  • Prescription Football Goggles: Ultimate Buyer's Guide

    The Ultimate Buyer's Guide to Finding the Best Football Goggles and Prescription Goggles

    Everyone knows that football is the sport to play, but with all of the possible injuries occurring, its no wonder moms are starting to rebel against it. Put some of those valid worries to rest with some football glasses or prescription football goggles! We are here to give you the ins-and-outs of football glasses and prescription football goggles so you can be sure to get the best so you can play your best!

    Safety and Perfect Vision on the Field are Key

    If you want to excel out there on the field, you're going to want to make sure your vision is in tip-top shape and eye safety on the field is your top priority. Even if you have been blessed with 20-20 vision, the right football goggles or football glasses can drive you to your optimal performance.

    See Better, React Faster

    The right football eyewear will help you see better and react faster, giving you an added edge over your competitors. Football goggles and prescription football goggles are specifically designed to keep your eyes safe, fit comfortably and securely and enhance your vision so you can feel like Superman out there on the field.

    When looking for the best pair of football eyewear, you're going to want to consider two major aspects: the make up of the frame and the lenses.

    Optimal Football Frame Features:

     - Anti-slip Nose Pads: The beauty of anti-slip nose pads is that they ensure a secure fit and maintain optical alignment throughout the entirety of a practice or game. These babies will stick to your nose even when you sweat. Rest assured your football glasses will stay in place so you can maintain your A-game.

     - High-Impact Resistant Frame: These are a must! Football is an intense sport and the reasons for a high-impact resistant frames are endlessness. A frame that can withstand any blow to the helmet or fingers to the face without breaking are your best bet when it comes to prescription football goggles.

     - Low-Profile Frame with Slim Temples: Low-profile frames with slim, straight-back temples are the way to go. These football glasses are helmet compatible, enabling a smooth fit and long-lasting comfort for all day wear on the field. Low-profile minimizes interference to your best game.

    Optimal Football Eyewear Lenses:

     - Polycarbonate, Impact-Resistant Lenses: You’re going to need lenses that are just about as tough as you are. We recommend polycarbonate, impact-resistant lenses since they are virtually unbreakable. They are crystal-clear and shatter resistance, that way you'll have the clearest vision possible on the field and you wont have to worry about a flyaway ball or fingers getting up close and personal with your eye. Thus, less for dear ol’ mom to worry about.

    - Polycarbonate lenses are not only durable, but they also have built-in UV protection, which comes in handy on those sunny days when you're out there on the field.

     - Anti-Fog Coating: We recommend anti-fog coating when it comes to football glasses or goggles in order to enable clear vision all the way to the final whistle. We know sweating bullets during practices or games are a part of the sport. Anti-fog destroys moisture and is sure to be your best defense against fogged football glasses or goggles.

  • Prescription Football Visors: It’s not a thing. Prescription Football Goggles Is.

    Prescription Football Visors: It’s not a thing. And here’s why:

    1) One reason prescription football visors are not a thing is a football visor has entirely too much curve. When it comes to optics, curve = distortion. This is why many prescription-wearers have a tough time getting Rx sunglasses with a lot of “wrap” or curve (unless they've found SportRx, of course!). The distortion created by the curve is oftentimes referred to as “the fish bowl effect.” Compared to the curve of a sunglass lens, the curve of a football visor is even more extreme.

    2) Another issue preventing the development of prescription football visors is something called “vertex distance.” This is the distance between the eyes and the corrective lens, which in this case, is the prescription football visor. The football visor sits farther away from the eyes than would a pair of glasses. This increased vertex distance makes the corrective prescription in a football visor ineffective.

    So if there’s no such thing as a prescription football visor, what is the best prescription solution for football players? The honest truth is there is no great solution; there are only less-bad solutions (is that a word?). Our solution is the least-bad solution out there. (What a sales pitch!)

    First and foremost, the best prescription eyewear solution for football players are contact lenses. However, contact lenses are not always a viable solution for everybody – especially when it comes to kids. Other times it’s a matter of the contact lenses drying out or not being secure enough. We've worked with athletes who struggle with their contacts falling out every time they take a hit on the football field.

    So what do you do if contact lenses are out of the question? Over the years, we've found one thing to be the best solution for athletes: Prescription football goggles.

    Here's what you need:

    1) Prescription Football Goggles. So the best prescription eyewear solution we have is a good ol' fashioned pair of sports goggles. Similar to the Eric Dickerson look – but not quite.

    What we would do is put the prescription in the goggles, and then put an anti-fog coating on the lenses. The Rec Specs Maxx 31 is the go-to football goggle. There is also a smaller version called the Rec Specs Maxx 21 which is great for pee wee football players; however, the Maxx 31 is the most popular size when it comes to adults and older kids. Rec Specs is a leader in making protective, safety-rated sports goggles and they are fantastic for football.

    2) Anti-Fog Coating. The anti-fog coating is a must! It’s a really great defense against fogging, however, fogging will never be 100% prevented. This is especially true when it comes to football players because football is a game of starting and stopping, which causes the rising and cooling of body temperature, which then accelerates the fogging of the lenses. Nevertheless, the anti-fog coating combats this issue pretty well.

    3) Skull Cap. You can find a good skull cap at any sporting goods store. Under Armour and Halo make some great ones that wick away sweat. This helps the football goggles stay in place underneath the helmet.

    What you would do is put on the football goggles, put on the skull cap, and then put on the helmet. Now, if the helmet fits just right without wearing anything underneath it, the goggles will most likely not fit. In this case, you may need to weigh the option of getting slightly thinner helmet pads on the sides of the helmet (see video) so that everything fits underneath comfortably and securely.

    So to sum it up: Prescription Football Goggles + Anti-Fog Coating + Skull Cap = Best Prescription Eyewear Solution (thus far!) on the Football field. Perhaps technology will catch up with us one day; and when it does, we’ll be the first to let you know!

  • Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross Dominate the Competition Wearing Oakley Green Fade PRIZM Stadium Sunglasses

    Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross, Oakley Green Fade, Rio 2016 Sunglasses

    When you think of beach volleyball at the 2016 Olympics, two names come to mind. Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross. These two have been dominating beach volleyball together ever since they became partners following the 2012 London Olympics, after Kerri Walsh Jennings and her now-retired partner, Misty May-Treanor, defeated April Ross and her former partner in the Gold Medal Match. This year at Copacabana Beach in the Rio 2016 Olympics, Kerri is going for her fourth consecutive Olympic Gold, while April Ross is looking to get her first.

    If you've been following Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross, then you've noticed their unique Oakley sunglasses. This year at the 2016 Rio Olympics, the Oakley Green Fade Collection is making a splash, and athletes in every discipline are wearing their sunglasses. April Ross has been rocking the Oakley Jawbreaker PRIZM Stadium Green Fade Edition sunglasses. It's a mouthful, we know, but they do the job. Kerri Walsh Jennings has also been wearing PRIZM Stadium sunglasses, but she prefers the Oakley EVZero Path frame.

    Oakley PRIZM Stadium Lenses | An Inside Look at Those Purple Lenses on the Olympic Court

    Oakley has created a new lens, specifically designed for and only available to the 2016 Rio Olympic athletes. PRIZM Stadium lenses are built specifically for indoor and nighttime Olympic Sports. Since Kerri and April have been playing most of their games at night, these lenses work perfectly for them. The technology uses some of the Oakley PRIZM dyes to enhance contrast while cutting out a bit of the glare from the stadium lights. Inserted into your traditional Oakley frames, the PRIZM Stadiums will compromise neither the athletes' sight nor performance. Talk about the perfect lens.

    Kerri and April received the PRIZM Stadium lenses only four days before their first match. And they were wearing them loud and proud. If Olympic athletes trust Oakley enough to wear these lenses with very little testing, then we know the PRIZM Stadium are great quality. Unfortunately, these lenses are not available to the public. Yet. With such a quality lens, we hope that one day they are.

    Wearing their Oakley PRIZM Stadium glasses, Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross started the Olympics off with a bang. Their first match against Australia ended after two sets, Kerri and April winning by 7 and 8. Easy stuff. The next match came just as easily. China was defeated by 5 and then by 12. Walsh Jennings/Ross then faced Switzerland, who put up a tough fight. After winning the first then losing the second set, Kerri and April pulled through in the final set to win it. These three matches completed pool play, and the two amazing athletes moved on to the Round of 16. Right on track for gold.
