SOME OF OUR EXTENSIVE RANGE OF BRANDS IN FOCUS:
Optician, trained during several years in designer oriented stores, Caroline Abram started in 1998 designing jewels and accessories for the eyewear market. Her collections are intended for all the women who want to feel beautiful, sensual, or just themselves. She launched her own line of glasses reminding her of the old-fashioned charm of Miami. Sixties and vintage, South Beach inspired the cat eyes.
Oliver Peoples is recognized for its selection of superior polarized and photochromic mineral glass sun lenses, which combine the finest materials available with the most advanced technologies in the world. Available in an array of rich, vibrant colours exclusive to the brand, rare earth elements blended into the lenses selectively filter sunlight so that vision is sharper, with improved clarity, colour definition and contrast. Combining optimum elements with decades of expertise and experience, Oliver Peoples sunglass lenses provide the ultimate visual experience.
Ultraviolet light is an invisible form of radiation produced by the sun and potentially harmful to the human eye. Coatings assure maximum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, ensuring the best vision possible. An anti-reflective coating absorbs bounce-back glare off the interior of the lens, preventing it from entering the eye, thus reducing eyestrain and fatigue. Hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings repel dust, water, oil, and fingerprints. Infrared rays from the sun generate heat that can cause dryness and weakness in eyes. The infrared coating filters these rays, offering protection and keeping eyes cool. VFX technology exclusive to Oliver Peoples includes a number of coatings that eliminate glare, reduce bright light, and offer superior eye protection against dangerous UV radiation.
Mac Nally Opticians on the Green are the sole Irish suppliers of Vinylize Eywear. Budapest-based Vinylize has created a sharp set of eyewear made from recycled vinyl records. The company uses a laser cutter to craft old records into chic eyewear for ladies and gents, and even the protective cases are made from recycled vinyl.
Vinylize‘s handmade specs are perfect for vinyl aficionados and music lovers. The company has been transforming dusty old records into modern designs for almost ten years. They prefer to source older, heavier vinyl from the 1960s and before to make their durable, individually crafted frames. With due respect to the resurgence of vinyl, Vinyilze seeks out records that have been passed over and are headed to the landfill.
Vinylize has perfected their method of fusing old vinyl with cellulose acetate, creating a smooth and comfortable pair of recycled shades. The records’ indented tracks and grooves give the frames texture, pattern, and a sense of history. Each pair of glasses comes with a burrito-style carrying case made from a folded record and sewn with a 7 inch zipper.

Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colors of the island to life, the company engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus2® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, their Classic Collection was introduced. Mac Nally Opticians offer Maui Jim sunglasses, which are polarized and protect from 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
