After working in advertising for over 25 years, I’ve been on so many shoots around the world and always feel bad for the models when the photographers continually shout out: ‘Open your eyes!’.
If you’re sensitive to light or the light is just too strong (either in snow or at the beach) – you often just can’t open them.
I’ve been wearing contact lenses myself for over 30 years and had the idea to create these ‘in-the-eyes’ sunglasses.
There have been tinted contact lenses on the market before, but they where all fully tinted, so the wearer looked demonic. With these lenses, the pupil is reduced to a small diameter, which gives you the benefits of sunglasses without the monster effect.
But again, please note: never look directly into the sun, as the lenses have no sun protection at all. It’s just to make it easier for you keep your eyes open in bright light.
