  • Illusions

    The illusions unique colour application makes the lens the focus of the glasses. The way the colour penetrates the lens keeps the eyewear totally clear yet a pulse of colour refracts from different directions. This new technique (based on optical refraction theory) is a revolutionary innovation in eyewear design. People wearing the eyewear are oblivious of the colour, yet people around them are puzzled by the electric pulse of colour piercing through. The colour can be changed at any time or a combination of different colours can be applied at any time (i.e footy colours, special occasions or just whenever you feel like a change).
