SPY Optics has long been known for their casual sunglasses and the athletes wearing them. But starting recently, they will be known for so much more. After 20 years of being the leading action sports go to brand for eyewear, SPY’s new collection Crosstown, now includes brand new technology that makes us…Happy. The Crosstown’s Hennepin and Bleecker utilize SPY’s patented Happy Lens technology, the only color and contrast enhancing lens designed to foster a positive uplift in attitude and alertness by allowing the mood-enhancing long-wave blue light into your eyes. Don’t worry, it still keeps away the bad stuff.

I have been wearing my favorite pair around Venice Beach and spreading the word about the technology that is out to make us all smile more and squint less.
