REKS® LAUNCHES HD DIGITAL PRESCRIPTION LENSES DELIVERED IN UNBREAKABLE FRAMES
Impact-Resistant Lenses With Greater Field of Vision and Improved Clarity Over Traditional Manufacturing Techniques
REKS® eyewear is introducing a new line of prescription lenses through a partnership with Revolution Golf, golf’s largest direct-to-consumer digital platform and part of NBC Sports’ portfolio of lifestyle businesses. The campaign also will be supported through commercial spots on Golf Channel.
REKS® burst on the eyewear scene two years ago at www.reks.com with comfortable, fashionable and unbreakable frames paired with the best lens value in the marketplace ¬– polycarbonate polarized lenses with anti-reflective coating for an incomparable price of $50.
“We paid close attention to customer feedback over the past two years and the most frequent request we received was whether we could provide prescription lenses in our unbreakable frames,” stated George Granoff. “Our team has met this challenge and can now offer prescription lenses featuring the industry’s best technology at excellent prices, true to REKS® tradition of packing a punch with style, comfort, quality and value.”
“Since its debut, REKS® eyewear has been popular with our golfers, thanks to its high-quality, polarized lenses that provide super-sharp clarity from fairway to green and their unbreakable frames that can withstand being tossed about in a golf bag or golf cart with no problem,” said Justin Tupper, founder of Revolution Golf. “We are excited to launch the REKS® prescription line and are confident that golfers of all abilities will reap the benefits.”
REKS® prescription lenses will be manufactured with the latest freeform digital technology that produces a high definition lens with greater field of vision and improved clarity over traditional lens manufacturing techniques. Digital generators place the complete design and Rx, including the “add” power on the back of the lens, closer to the eye. “This type of digital pinpoint manufacturing cuts the lenses in hundredths of a diopter and not the usual 10th of a diopter, thus creating a lens that is 10-times more precise than the traditional manufacturing process,” added Granoff.
In addition to polycarbonate lenses that are the standard in the industry, REKS® is also pleased to offer Trivex lenses. Trivex lens material was originally developed for use by the military for helicopter windshields and fighter jet canopies. Then, in 2002, PPG Industries tailored the chemistry of the material specifically for use in optical lenses, making Trivex one of the most lightweight, impact-resistant eyeglass lens materials available.
Because of the way Trivex is manufactured, it has less chromatic distortion than a polycarbonate lens, resulting in a sharper visual experience. “A high definition Trivex prescription lens is what many eye care professionals consider to be the best combination of safety, comfort, appearance and optical performance,” said Granoff. “We are truly excited to offer this leading lens technology to our unbreakable frames to create a line of industry-leading eyewear for consumers who are looking for stylish and functional glasses at an affordable price.”
Anti-reflective coating makes such a difference in lens appearance and performance, REKS® will not deliver a lens without it. Therefore, AR is included for no additional charge. This microscopic coating eliminates light reflecting from the front and back surfaces of the lenses, giving the lenses a crystal-clear appearance. Additionally, all tints and gradient tints are offered at no additional charge.
REKS® provides a 30- day no-questions-asked money back guarantee in addition to a 1-year warranty against scratches.
