Tel Aviv, Israel—DeepOptics, the inventor and pioneer of a novel adaptive lens technology, unveils its new product, 32°N (pronounced 32 North), the first and only adaptive focus sunglasses. Using patented dynamic Liquid Crystal lenses, the glasses switch from sunglasses to reading glasses with a single swipe. Users can add their own reading prescription using the 32ºN app, making the glasses 100% personalizable.
32ºN is the first and only adaptive focus sunglasses. 32°N Sunglasses enable a few different reading prescriptions with a single pair of glasses, allowing the users to seamlessly switch between “reading mode” for near vision and “scenic mode” for far distances. 32°N Sunglasses addresses the needs of people suffering from presbyopia, an age-related, irreversible gradual loss of the eye's ability to focus on nearby objects, usually occurring after the age of 45.
“We are on a mission to improve human vision through dynamic optics,” says Yariv Haddad, the CEO and co-founder of DeepOptics. “Presbyopia is a problem that affects a great many people, for much of the time. 32°N Glasses is the first product of several on our roadmap. It was developed to provide a seamless technological solution to a problem faced by over 1.8 billion people worldwide.”
The 32°N Sunglasses uses liquid crystal layers split into tiny pixels that accustom to the eyes’ needs at any given time. The glasses provide an effective solution for those who suffer from Presbyopia, impeding the need to constantly change between sunglasses and reading glasses outdoors.
Founded in 2011 by a group of entrepreneurs with vast experience in the electro-optics industry, DeepOptics was created to disrupt the traditional eyewear industry with technology-driven, adaptable optical solutions that provide customers with a seamless experience. 32°N Glasses is Deep Optics' first commercial product. The glasses were launched on Kickstarter in June 2021 and exceeded its funding goal within mere few hours, with over 1,200 pledges, amounting to more than $300,000. DeepOptics's investors include some of the leading names in the eyewear and technology industries. Among them are Essilor and Samsung Ventures.
