FAQ

FAQ

Can I set each lens to a different magnification value?

Yes! You will be able to set and update your reading magnification for each eye using our dedicated app.

Are there more frame shapes available?

At this point, we offer only one frame shape. More frame styles will be available in the future.

What’s the difference between 32°N and transition glasses?

Transition glasses change their opacity (how dark they are). 32°N go from conventional sunglasses (no prescription) to reading sunglasses without changing their opacity.

How does the technology work?

32°N sunglasses feature pixelated liquid crystal (LC) layers that are split into tiny pixels, capable of rotation at every point of the panel. When the user swipes, they activate the tiny processor embedded in the glasses’ temple. The processor calculates the user’s personal data and sends that data to form the desired lens prescription. Millions of tiny pixels inside the lens change their electrical state according to the new data to form the lens and bring the close object into focus. Completely silent, and without any extra weight or moving parts, DeepOptics’ LC lens enables an unlimited number of dynamic, high-quality lenses that can be changed at any moment.

Are 32°N safe to use?

The glasses are designed to be completely safe. They use extremely low power, similarly to small consumer electronics devices such as wireless headphones and earbuds, and are designed to meet all health and safety standards.

The final stage of the project would be to run them though certification lab tests.

How are 32°N different from bi-focal?

32°N are based on a technology enabling the glasses to switch between reading and conventional sunglasses, rather than looking through different areas of the lens/glasses.

Can 32°N correct for far vision as well as for reading?

32°N only corrects for reading. Far vision is currently not supported. We’re working to include this in our next product. 

Is my phone supported by the app?

The app is designed to support most phones. The requirements are IOS x and above or android. 

Do the 32°N glasses work if my cell phone is not with me?

Yes, definitely. The glasses are autonomous. Your mobile phone is only needed to do an initial set up to calibrate for your vision, or to change some preferences from time to time if you want. 

What happens to 32°N when the battery dies?

In that case, they act like regular sunglasses without the close vision functionality. Once you recharge them, you can operate that function again.

Is there a warranty?

Yes! a one-year warranty. We will repair (remotely or physically) any technical fault with your 32°N sunglasses, provided that usage of the glasses was in line with the recommendations in the user guide and wasn't a result of breakage or water damage.

Do the glasses block blue light?

Yes, they do. They also block UV :)

Can I buy 32°N glasses with transparent lenses (not sunglasses)?

At this time we are only offering tinted sunglasses, however, transparent are definitely on our roadmap.

Is it possible to activate 32°N glasses by using voice commands or only with touch?

For the time being, the glasses are activated only with touch. Our next generation of glasses will include eye tracking activation as well.

How can I keep 32°N glasses clean without damaging them?

We designed 32°N so that you can treat them just like your normal glasses. They aren’t any more sensitive than conventional sunglasses when it comes to cleaning them.
