Lens and frame care

Popticals are designed to be stored in the protective case included with purchase, in a dry place between -14°F and 95°F when not in use. Do not rest Popticals lenses against hard or abrasive surfaces, and do not keep Popticals hung from a shirt collar, around your neck or on top of your head or hat, as damage to the sunglasses can occur.


To clean your Popticals, use water and mild soap, avoiding all types of solvents or alcohol. If any debris or dirt is in the channel of the FL2 Micro-Rail System™, run warm water from faucet to rinse out foreign material. Wipe off any excess water with a clean, dry, soft nonabrasive cloth. For daily cleaning to remove dust or smudges, use the cleaning cloth provided with purchase. Do not use abrasive cloths on lenses, as it could alter the functionality of their filters. Use only original accessories and parts.


Popticals lenses provide UV400 protection, filtering out 100% of harmful ultraviolet radiation, including UVA and UVB rays. Popticals fully meet all domestic and international sunglasses standards, including American ANSI Z80, European EN 1836 and Australian AS/NV 1067.

Popticals uniquely combine high quality and unmatched convenience. Our NYDEF Nylon lenses, made by Zeiss Group, a global leader in quality optics, provide superior clarity and visual enhancement. Our handmade Italian frames feature Grilamid TR 90, the lightest-engineered plastic on the planet, providing excellent durability able to stand up to long-term outdoor usage and even extreme climatic conditions.

And our patented FL2 Micro-Rail System™ provides for one-of-a-kind collapsibility, enabling Popticals to quickly shift between full frame for use and uniquely compacted size for easy and scratch-resistant storage and portability.

We rigorously select our suppliers through and ensure that they use only premium, high-quality materials.

After undergoing thorough inspection, the sunglasses are prepackaged and re-inspected before being shipped out. We ensure that every order is carefully inspected before being sealed and shipped.

Popticals represent a breakthrough in sunglasses that combines the highest quality with unique, patented portability. Our glasses are designed to collapse to a small size and fit snugly into a protective case, making them uniquely compact and easy to store in a pocket or small bag. With Popticals, your sunglasses integrate seamlessly into your active life.

The FL2 Micro-Rail System™ is composed of magnets and stainless-steel rails designed specifically to prevent rust or corrosion. With proper care and maintenance, the rail system will last as long as you own your sunglasses.

With every pair of Popticals, along with your sunglasses you will receive a case, soft bag and cleaning cloth. The case for most frame styles is the hard-shell case, designed to withstand any impact you might encounter in pursuit of your active life. The exceptions are PopAir, which comes with a leather case; and PopH2O, which comes with a neoprene case. To learn more about the cases and their specifications you can read this article.

NYDEF® lenses, created by global optics leader Carl Zeiss Vision, use nylon material which significantly boosts clarity compared to polycarbonate lenses found in most sunglasses. Nylon is known for its high purity and allows for less correction of light, resulting in improved clarity overall.

The FL2 Miro-Rail System™ is the heart of the compact design. It is an innovative, patented system that allows the lenses to slide together for use and apart for compact storage. It uses powerful magnets to guide the lenses to the center of the frames for quick and effortless connection for use, and similarly simple disconnection for storage. Utilizing corrosion and rust-proof materials ensures durable, long-lasting functionality.

Product Care & Maintenance

To keep your Popticals in good condition, it's important to store them in the protective case provided when not in use. This reduces the likelihood of damage and scratches. Regularly cleaning your lenses is also recommended to improve performance and prevent dirt and dust buildup that may be difficult to remove later. A little bit of care can go a long way in maintaining the longevity of your Popticals.

For a thorough cleaning of your lenses and frames, it's best to use mild soap and warm water, followed by a quick drying session with a lint-free cloth. Additionally, the soft cloth bag and cleaning cloth provided can be used to easily wipe off any dust that may accumulate on the lenses.

Your rails are designed for hassle-free maintenance. Given the active lives of our clients, we know that Popticals may be exposed to the elements. Should they get dirty, it makes sense to wash them with warm water and make sure that the channel that the rail system slides within is clear.
