Rx-able Sport and Safety Glasses hit the Shark Tank



Introducing Innovation to OH&S

Rx-able Sport and Safety Glasses hit the Shark Tank

10th June, Brisbane, Australia prwire.com.au

In 2011 the Australian New Eye Company introduced the world’s first Rx-able safety eye-wear system to Australian corporations and went on to win ABC’s New Inventor Award.

Now they have bigger fish to fry - Sharks!

Issues with Optical Safety Glasses

Inventor and certified Optician Andy Mehringer said he’d identified some major issues with conventional sports and safety glasses that with a little innovation he believed he could rectify.

Firstly, the high costs companies face when replacing prescription safety glasses when they get scratched. This results in employees requiring time off work until replacement prescription safety glasses arrive. This is because safety glasses are often an OH&S requirements.

Introducing Innovation to OH&S

The IC-Safety Rx-able safety eye-wear system, that Mehringer invented, enables wearers to simply release their prescription lenses and re-insert them into inexpensive replacement protective frames. The protective frames come in various colours for different light and work related conditions and protect the expensive prescription lenses from being scratched.

The system comprises of wrap-around protective frames with clear or coloured lenses plus an Astralon™ optical foil which is a flexible plastic inner frame that can be fitted with a person’s prescription lenses. The Astralon™ foil slips into place beneath the outer frames that take the brunt of wear and tear or any impact.

In the Shark Tank

Mehringer will pitch the IC-Safety Eyewear System to Channel Ten’s Shark Tank Team on Thursday 16th June at 8.40pm.

So please tune in to watch their reaction to the Australian invented Rx-able Safety Eyewear system that has not only taken the local market by storm, but globally as well.
