Studio Optyx showcasing New Models in New York

Studio Optyx took New York City by storm this past weekend at the Carolton Hotel on 5th Ave (Millesime Restaurant)

With the piano and the upright base setting the pace, We showcased new models from Derapage Eyewear, manufactured in Italy and Mainhattan Eyewear and Sunglasses manufactured at our factory in near Frankfurt, Germany.

We have teamed up with famous fashion designer Ola Hawatmeh with her brand Ola Styles

With Ola's swimsuit line we matched the new Sunglass models from Mainhattan Eyewear as the drums and electric guitar amp up the house. We have produced a new flash mirror that matches the frame and the new patented paint feels like rubber on the stainless steel frame.

The sleek new acetates from the Derapage collection keep the same racy look that Derapage is known for, but add a new dimension with the geek chic nerd style round glasses.

Camera's were flashing, crowds gathering and cheering, drinks were flowing...a night not to forget!

5 Cool Eyeglasses Innovations on the Horizon

By: Tracy Hall

After not changing much at all since the 19th century, the process of vision correction using eyeglasses has been progressing in leaps and bounds in recent years. Check out these exciting concepts, available very soon or even right now!
1. No More Reading Glasses or Bifocals

2. Hi-definition eyeglasses
Recent computer technology allows far more customized lens making than formerly, creating a lens that is adapted not only for the overall vision correction but individually designed for the contours of your particular eye. The same wavefront computer mapping technology used to map the eye for LASIK surgery is used to create the lenses.
When available: Now, at a cost of 25 – 30% more per lens than traditional eyeglasses.
Until now, an inevitable and dreaded rite of passage into middle age has been the need for reading glasses, or even worse, bifocals. Trufocals or Superfocus glasses aim to change the need for multiple glasses and lenses by use of fluid-filled lenses behind the usual corrective lenses. The extra lens is adjustable by means of a slider on the nose piece, allowing the user to sharpen focus for different focusing distances.
When available: Now, but be prepared to pay significant money–the Superfocus glasses retail for $895.
