Walk a Mile in My Flexon Glasses. And Win Flexon Sunglasses Yourself!

Posted January 22, 2015 by jimhigley


I’ve been on a “Facelift” journey over the last few weeks – picking out a new pair of eyeglasses from Flexon. Check out my stories about picking out my frames as well as my eye exam for full background on what I’ve learned! And be sure to read the section below titled, ” Win a Pair of Flexon Sunglasses!” – today might be your lucky day!

I’m Feeling Flexon Fine

My new Flexon Laser Precision frames arrived! And after a check-in with my eyecare professional at Lossman Eye Care I was off and running. Er, make that flying. Two hours after I picked up my eyewear, I was on a plane headed for Las Vegas. 98% business. And 2% pleasure. I arrived in Las Vegas around 9:00 p.m. – so the Nevada night was still young. But for this typical early-bird, it was the perfect opportunity to test out my new glasses and experience the energy of one of the most colorful cities on the planet.

The verdict? The frames are the most comfortable I’ve ever had – and the lenses make me feel like I have the eyes of a five-year old! But the best test – which came later that night when I feel asleep watching T.V. still wearing my glasses (a common occurrence I’m embarrassed to say) – was that the frames withstood my tossing and turning in bed. As promised, they flexed right back to their original shape!

And for me, that was better than hitting the jackpot.

And now you have a chance to hit the Flexon jackpot!

Just when you thought Flexon couldn’t get any better – they just did! Their brand new Flexon Sun Collection is the first memory metal sun wear entirely equipped with PolarRepel lenses. What’s that mean? Well, you get the same incredible frame technology that Flexon is known for along with an exclusive PolarRepel lens, which has superior protection against scratches, smudges and easily repels dust, water and grease – making it incredibly easy to clean.

Flexon Facts

One of the top things I’ve learned over the last few weeks is that not all eyeglasses are made the same. Flexon’s features – in my book – put them in a class by themselves. Here’s the top three Flexon facts that resonate with me:

  • These frames are like nothing else I’ve ever seen in the 40+ (ahem) years I’ve worn glasses. They are made of a metal alloy of titanium and nickel – and you can bend the heck out of them – and then watch them return to their original shape.
  • They keep their shape. That means no more loose glasses that sit funny or slide down the nose.
  • They are light! Like 25% lighter than other typical metals.

    I’m always all about awesome sunglasses! I feel asleep in my glasses quite a bit too, and there’s always a moment of panic feeling around the bed and hoping they’re not demolished.:) Glad you love your new ones!

    Flexon makes the only frames that survive my lifestyle and work. Many a time I’ve had to shove a pair in my fire coat pocket when masking up and they always take the beating. There is the one time I missed the pocket by the glasses weren’t to blame. 😉

    Looks terrific, especially for a dad who often forgets to take off his glasses before jumping onto the bed with his kids, rolling around the grass with his kids during a picnic or other random act of aggressive silliness…with his kids. Thanks!

    Here in the Northeast, we need sunglasses all summer to protect against direct EM radiation, and most of the winter to protect against Reflected EM radiation off the snow. As we’re getting a killer storm today….I wish I owned a pair now!
