The world’s leading manufacturer of OveRx® sunglasses receives thousands upon
thousands of consumer comments and suggestions regarding their eyewear
collections and accessories. The company closely monitors this feedback through
its customer care center and incorporates them as a key element in refining
existing product lines and developing new concepts for outdoor enthusiasts.
Live Eyewear President, Kieran Hardy, explains,
“Our customer service team and specialty retailers talk to a lot of people who
wear prescription glasses and use OveRx sunwear. One of their most common
complaints had nothing to do with the comfort or function of their OveRx
sunglasses… it had to do with storing their OveRx sunwear and prescription
glasses safely while working, playing, or competing in harsh outdoor elements.”
“As with many other items we use everyday, people
have a tendency to misplace their eyewear or become careless with the storage of
their eyewear and end up losing or damaging it. Most people become frustrated
with having to carry multiple cases, cleaning cloths, etc., and eventually stop
using them due to the hassle. We began to ask how we could solve this problem
and the resounding answer was to provide an “all in one” case that could protect
their delicate prescription glasses and simultaneously store their OveRx
sunglasses and/or other valuables”, continued Hardy.
The patented Tandem design features two separate
compartments, one incorporates an internal hard shell compartment for protecting
Rx frames, and on the reverse side is an oversized soft compartment for storing
OveRx sunglasses. The case is manufactured out of durable neoprene and includes
a belt clip and swivel D-ring clip that can be secured to belt loops, key rings,
and other hooks. The Tandem case will also float while fully loaded with
eyewear, OveRx sunglasses, and other valuables to help protect your possessions
if they end up overboard.
Vice President of Marketing, Dave Dean, adds, “The
response to Tandem’s initial release from our specialty retailers and consumers
has been extremely positive. Not only is the Tandem an accessory for those that
wear prescription eyewear and OveRx sunglasses, but we have also found that many
people are using the oversized storage compartment for other items, such as
spare change, cell phones, car/boat keys, ammunition, fishing lures, golf tees
and other valuables, making it a great multi-purpose case for anyone that wears
Tandem is available directly from Live Eyewear
with an MSRP of $9.95.
