What makes OTIS so unique?

Environmentally friendly. Scratch resistant. Optically correct.

There are multiple things that can go wrong with sunglass lenses. Some scratch easily, some distort your vision and most are made from plastic and are terrible for the environment. Using mineral glass fixes all of these problems.

Every OTIS lens is made from non-toxic natural materials like sand and soda ash. At the end of their long life, they’re also endlessly recyclable. They are thermally hardened, enhancing their already natural scratch resistance and durability. They’re also ground, polished and precision tested for clarity control, making them 100% optically correct. 

Just check out how they are made in the clip below...

The Unbeatable Benefits of Mineral Glass

One of the best things about this material is its incredible scratch resistance and durability. Unlike other materials, such as plastic, it’s a hard and dense material that's less likely to get scratched or damaged. This makes it the perfect choice for people who live active lifestyles and need sunglasses that can keep up with their daily activities.

At OTIS Eyewear, we take pride in our commitment to sustainability and technical excellence. We believe in using natural materials that are harmless to humans and animals alike, which is why we use mineral glass lenses in our range of sunglasses for both men and women.

It’s an endlessly recyclable material. This means that at the end of their life, our sunglasses can be recycled and reused, reducing their impact on the environment.
