Rudy Project Rydon For Running Sunglasses

I've been an optician for twenty years, and a runner for most of that time. In this video I'll explain why the Rydon by Rudy Project is my top pick for running sunglasses.

Transitions Style Mirrors

Daniel and Derek talk about Transitions lenses, as well as the new Transitions 'Style Mirrors' option, and discuss the pros and cons of adding those options to your eyewear.
