Jonathan Paul Eyewear introduces Duality Eyewear, which consists of a pair of ophthalmic frames with coordinating Fitovers sunglasses. The Fitovers snaps perfectly into place and a subtle flash mirror treatment conceals the Rx eyewear below, providing a seamless integration of the frame and sunglass. The ophthalmic frames are made of memory metal with DualFlex temples with two titanium coils, a Reflex memory metal bridge and adjustable silicone nosepads. The Fitovers are constructed of TR-90 memory plastic and feature PDX polarized lenses and side shields and a patented integrated brow block that blocks light from above. Targeted to men and women 45 to 75, the ophthalmic frames are progressive lens friendly and combined with the matching Fitovers are ideal for driving or any outdoor activity. Included are three styles, all in an eye size of 52mm with a 15mm bridge and 135mm temple lengths. Each frame is offered in two colors—purple marble or dark purple, red licorice or red wine and tortoise or dark chestnut.
