There is a company in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, called Optic Nerve. They have manufactured sport sunglasses called Optic Nerve sunglasses for over twenty five years. Intelligence, awareness and style is what they stand for.

All Optic Nerve sunglasses meet or exceed the United States standards for 100% UVA and UVB protection and the United States impact standards.

Optic Nerve Sunglasses

One of the styles of Optic Nerve sunglasses I found interesting, is the MO Flava black cherry. These glasses fit medium to large shaped faces and feature Toric lens technology. This is described as a lens that has two different base curves on the same lens. What does that mean? According to their web page, it is an advanced technology that offers “incredible peripheral coverage and vision while at the same time does not crowd the face or look Bug-eyed like the conventional” format can do.

These Optic Nerve sunglasses also feature their focal point lens technology, which eliminates prismatic distortions and allows crisp, clear optical clarity. This would be a much needed feature if you were sailing or driving.

Optic Nerve sunglasses have an option called the PhotoMatic. It sounds to me like this is their version of Transition lenses, as they automatically change from dark to light depending on the light conditions. The information available says they change within 10 seconds.

Another option listed is PhotoGlare. This process combines the polarized lens with the PhotoMatic lens. Sounds like the best of both worlds to me!

The Optic Nerve sunglasses that really caught my interest are the Pink Ribbon Sunglasses. These have a white frame with the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon on the side frames. Optic Nerve Sunglasses are program partners with the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation. A four dollar donation per each pair of these sunglasses that are sold will go to the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation with a minimum donation of $25,000.

My maternal aunt had a double mastectomy, so I am very aware of supporting any cause with the goal of eradicating breast cancer’s life threatening disease. That alone would interest me, but these Optic Nerve sunglasses are very stylish and feminine. Two qualities I look for when checking out sunglasses. Even though I hope to never be told that I am facing that terrible disease, it can happen to any woman at any age. Please, visit to eradicate breast cancer.
