December 19, 2005

Optic Nerve Introduces The Buddah - Blending Style And Technology New Frame In Stores January 1st

Long known for their dedication to quality and cutting-edge technology, Optic Nerve has taken their product line a step further. Just in time for the New Year, Optic Nerve unveils The Buddah, a new sunglass style that incorporates their advanced Toric lens technology with a fashionable, oversized design.

Introduced earlier this year, Toric Lenses are the latest addition to Optic Nerve's arsenal of technology. In addition to UVA and UVB protection, the toric lens provides distortion-free comfort and clarity with a 10 degree base curve horizontally and a 5 degree base curve on a vertical axis that protects against refraction. In short, it keeps your eyes from doing any extra work and provides a universal ergonomic fit not possible with conventional wrap lens styles.

Part of the Essentials series, The Buddah utilizes Toric Technology in an ultra hot, edgy design that is perfect for the style-maven and the ski bum in everyone. The Buddah fits a variety of face shapes and sizes and is available in four colors - black, demi, khaki and white. The suggested retail price is $54 and they are expected to be available in retail shops by January 1, 2006.
