Fun fact: the average person looks at their phone up to 58 times every day.
Another fun fact: almost 2 billion people around the world are living with presbyopia. Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes' ability to focus on nearby objects while being 45 or older. It has a frightening name, but it’s a natural part of being human—presbyopia is not a disease, it’s just life. One of the (not so fun) facts of life is that at a certain age, you will not be able to check your phone 58 times a day without reaching for your reading glasses.

This is where 32°N comes in. 

32°N sunglasses were made for people like you: the ones who forget where they put their reading glasses and now can’t read the cocktail menu while sitting outside at their favorite spot. The ones who can’t check their WhatsApp messages at the beach because their reading glasses were left in the car. The ones who have found themselves wearing their reading glasses over their sunglasses one time too many.

32°N are the first (and only) adaptive focus sunglasses. In other words, these sunglasses change their focus into reading sunglasses with just one swipe. These glasses adapt to you and your vision needs. 32°N sunglasses are Deep Optics' first product. Immediately after they were launched, they made Time magazine’s best inventions of 2022 list, and in 2023, they won the Dezeen Design Award.


Sunglasses that change their focus WITH A SWIPE

Sounds a bit like sci-fi? Well, you’re right.
The groundbreaking technology hidden inside these sunglasses frames is the result of years of R&D. They feature pixelated liquid crystal (LC) layers that allow them to smoothly switch between far and close vision, enabling you to see what you want, when you want, without needing to change glasses or adjust to bifocals. And (it’s important!) they also look great.
"When the lens is turned off, it has no optical function, and when it is turned on, it can be tuned to any relevant optical power," says Ravid Doron, PhD, a clinical specialist with the company and a professor of optometry and vision science at Hadassah Academic College in Jerusalem.

With 32°N sunglasses, you can look at the horizon and then read the fine print on your camera screen. Yes, presbyopia is an aging thing, but life is short and you don’t want to waste it searching for your reading glasses when you’re already wearing sunglasses.

The people behind 32°N sunglasses don’t waste one second missing their youth: “We don’t believe fifty is the new thirty,” says Yariv Haddad, CEO and founder: “We know aging is the best thing that has ever happened to us (after all – consider the alternative). We just don’t want to constantly change glasses when we’re outside, and all of us here love being outdoors.”
