Teach your favorite sunglasses to read! These micro-thin, optically clear, flexible, removable and reusable magnifying lenses turn your favorite sunglasses, safety glasses, computer glasses, helmet visor, or ski/dive goggles into bifocals! Available in six magnifications from 1.25 to 3.00 diopters. And unlike expensive prescription bifocals, these lenses cost less than $20!


Have you ever fumbled with two sets of glasses -- one for magnification to read and the other for protection from the sun? Here's the solution: Optx·20/20 HydroTac lenses -- the soft, removable, reading lenses that can change any style of sunglasses into an instant set of bifocal sunglasses for a fraction of the cost of prescription bifocals. Developed by optical inventor and plastic lens pioneer Peter La Haye, these lenses are one of the best new product ideas we've come across in a long time.


Sooner or later, virtually everyone starts to lose the ability to "accommodate" or focus sharply at close range. This is called "presbyopia" (or farsightedness), and if you've reached your 40s you're probably starting to encounter its inevitable effects. If this sounds familiar, you're gonna fall in love with these little apply-them-yourself Optx·20/20 lenses, just like we did.


Optx·20/20 is the ideal solution for anyone who leads an active, free lifestyle, but who may need some help seeing things close up. It’s perfect for anyone who loves to be outdoors -- looking at a chart or approach plate in the cockpit, reading a book on the beach or in a boat, checking the golf score card, studying a trail map, tying a fish lure, or just reading a restaurant menu.


Based on a molecular-attraction technology -- the same basic principle that makes clear plastic kitchen wrap cling tightly to a glass bowl -- Optx·20/20 lenses adhere firmly to your eyewear using just a drop of water, are completely removable and reusable. They leave sunglasses free of any tell-tale lines or sticky residue. They are simple to use and can be positioned and trimmed to fit any style or size of sunglasses. They're also ideal for safety glasses, computer glasses, flight and cycle helmet visors, cycle, ski and dive goggles, and many other types of eyewear.


 Each Optx·20/20 lens is manufactured from micro-thin pliable optical-grade plastic and has a half-moon shape designed to cover approximately the inside bottom 25% of your standard eyewear lenses. However, the lenses can be easily trimmed to fit for special applications, and even can be positioned on top for overhead work. They're incredibly versatile.

 

Installing Optx·20/20 lenses is quick and easy. First, wash your eyewear with mild soap and water to ensure that the lenses are clean and oil-free. Then apply a drop of plain water to the inside of the lens and place the Optx·20/20 magnifier in position, generally at the lower inside edge of the lens, with the convex side of the Optx·20/20 against the lens. Press the Optx·20/20 in place with a rolling motion of your finger in order to squeeze out any air bubbles. Remove any excess water with a tissue. Repeat for the other lens. Then let your eyewear dry for an hour or so and you're done!

 

Once applied in this fashion, your eyewear may be wiped clean or washed with soap and water without any risk of dislodging the Optx·20/20 magnifiers. Yet the Optx·20/20 lenses may be easily removed and repositioned, or transferred to another set of glasses.

 

Optx·20/20 lenses are available in six magnifying powers from 1.25 to 3.00 diopters Choose your ideal strength based on how presbyopic you are and how close you need to focus. As a general rule-of-thumb, determine the correct magnification by subtracting 30 from your age, then moving the decimal point one place to the left. (For example, if you're 55 years old, 55-30=25 so you probably need 2.5 diopter magnification for close-up work.) Or see chart below. Naturally, everyone's eyes are different, so your mileage may vary.
