Gels®* Reading Glasses by Scojo New York®* have been a favorite of American style meisters for over 25 years. You may be familiar with them. But if you’re not, envision the eyewear worn by Senator Elizabeth Warren and President Teddy Roosevelt. Gels are rimless and have a clearly identifiable shape. A shape popular our granddad’s day.
Scojo New York’s Gels reading glasses fit almost everyone’s face, are lightweight, flexible, and durable.
Scojo New York (which, to mess with your head, is located in Minneapolis) was founded as ScojoVision by a New York eye doctor and his colleague who sold the company to pursue philanthropy. But, despite Gels being embraced by upscale buyers in fancy stores, a bazillion pairs were returned soon after they were bought, the result of faulty manufacturing.
Enter the chief designer at Scojo New York. (Contractually, we’re not allowed to mention Dave’s name. But we grabbed a photo of him at a recent trade show. Cool dude, right?) He re-designed and re-engineered the product repeatedly until it met his meticulous quality standards.
Natch, he kept their classically old-fashioned look and had them handcrafted to withstand the wear and abuse any pair of quality reading glasses must endure.
But that talented designer left Scojo New York recently and now works under the moniker of Evolve-Eyewear. Realizing the popularity and functional qualities of the old product, he’s reimagined the lightweight, flexible, easy-to-carry reader from scratch. Being a creative type, he calls them the “P5000.”
First and foremost, he focused on quality components and manufacturing and made the frame and temples from TR90 surgical plastic which is extremely durable. He made them exceptionally lightweight and flexible. He concentrated on exceptional clarity. He imbued the product with styling that’s a lot more modern than its predecessor. And most importantly, he increased the lens surface area which is both reflection resistant and provides you with a wider field of view.
Virtually every one of VisAcuity.com’s customers who have tried them has loved their look, feel, and how clearly they see what they’re reading. Many, over the short life span of the new product, have bought more pairs in different colors to enhance their wardrobes of reading glasses.
It’s time for you to put your eyes behind these beauties. Get yourself a pair of P5000s and see what you’ve been missing.
