I received the delivery of my repaired TAG Heuer 3781 sunglasses.
Thank you very much for supporting this request. It certainly reinforces my conviction to using Heavyglare to purchase quality eyewear (now on, I believe, my 4th pair from HG), as well as confidence in Heavyglare for aftersales service.
Though using remote vendors to purchase some products has become commonplace to the extent that brick-and-mortar is no longer the presumed "go-to" for a lot of products, I have to admit that buying something as vital as eyewear, particularly as specialized as sun protected prescription wear, can be somewhat daunting. My experience with HG, again, has proven that my confidence in Heavyglare is not misplaced.

My apologies for not getting back with you sooner, but I wanted to give it some time before I emailed you so I could have a while to wear my new sunglasses and give you
my honest opinion. So, after almost 2 months, all I can say is....these sunglasses are fricking awesome! I am extremely happy that I could get the WileyX frames I wanted,
and also extremely happy that you found a lab that could put my high prescription in a high wrap frame like the WileyX P17. I am extremely satisfied. The only thing I can say
that is a possible negative is there is a bit of eyelash contact if I have the glasses pushed all the way to the bridge of my nose, like them resting against my forehead. But, I never
have worn any glasses like that. I just put them on and when my eyelashes don't touch, or with absolute minimal contact, I'm good! No, it doesn't look like they are falling off my
face, but the lenses are thick, and I understand it's because of two reasons....one is my prescription, and two, it's because they have to be safety rated to match the frames.
I want to thank you so much for your help with my purchase from you. I am more than satisfied. As you know, with people that have high vision correction like mine, it's difficult
to get sunglasses in the style and frame that a person wants, but you got it done! I see great out of them! Good job, and well done! I couldn't be happier!
I will be a returning customer!
Thank you again,
All the best,

I got a quarky error message from the survey and I wanted to make sure that my comments were received. I mentioned that this was the best telephone purchase experience I have ever had (I am 65 years old)! The person I talked to was knowledge, courteous and patient. I sent two sets of frames to have lens installed with a fairly complicated prescription. The transaction was accomplished without a hitch. I was informed when the frames arrived in your shop, when the work began, when it was expected to be completed, when the job was completed and when the product shipped. I received them a few days latter and I am thrilled with the quality of the lens. They are providing me with a new motorcycle experience. Thank you for your great service. I will surely tell my friends about your great company.

I just received my frames today and I wanted to thank you for doing such an excellent job on my glasses.
I had already tried the frames on at a local sunglass store to ensure they would fit my face but my biggest concern was how the Rx would turn out in the frames.
I had previously ordered Rx sunglasses from Framesdirect.com with the same Rx and I had some real difficulties with blurred vision.
I don't know what they did to the lenses (perhaps the optical center was off or the entire Rx was wrong); I had to constantly tilt my head or adjust the frames on my face to see clearly. I was very frustrated and upset as there was no returns allowed on Rx sunglasses; I had spent hundreds of dollars on these frames and they weren't even Rx wrap frames.
The frames you made for me are perfect! My vision was crystal clear when I first put on the frames; no blurry vision and no need to 'adjust to the frames' like the other frames.
Perhaps it is the Shamir Autograph lens that is the reason for my crystal clear vision?
Whatever the reason, I am very happy with my Rx wraps and I regret that I didn't originally order from Heavyglare.com in the first place.
Thanks again for all your hard work and I wish you all the best,

After receiving his glasses yesterday, Mike went on a run this morning and stated he was able to run confidently for the first time in a long while. He said his glare was cut significantly. Due to his eye disease(retinitis pigmentosa), Mike had purchased a cane to help in on those difficulty, glaring days. With those cocoon glasses, he was getting by and did not make the step to use his cane. With his new prescription sunglasses, I don’t think he’ll need the cane for a long time…..hopefully never, with the help of science. Thank you so much for your assistance. You have no idea.

I got my new sunglasses yesterday, and they are perfect! I love them.
I had actually asked for non-progressive bifocals, as I had been told that with the wraparound frames I might experience some distortion with progressive bifocals that would bother me. But somehow... I got progressives. But no problem, I don't notice any distortion. And I do prefer progressives.
On my previous sunglasses I did not get bifocals at all, thinking that I would only be wearing them when active outside and therefore would only need distance. I was wrong about that, and frequently had to take off my shades when outside in the sun to read something. Now that's no longer a problem. :-)
Thanks for scaring up another set of the same frames. I'm a happy customer!

I wanted to take a few minutes to express how happy and satisfied I have been with my purchases from HeavyGlare.
Recently, I worked with Sue on a very special request. She was the most delightful person to work with. It was like we had been friends for years, although I’ve never met her.
She was on top of everything I requested and fixed an error I had made without making me feel as if I was wrong or didn’t know what I was doing.
It’s not very often we encounter people in customer service who really love what they do and understand what ‘customer service’ really means. That was so refreshing.
HeavyGlare has great products and I know I’ll be back to buy more. And not only are the products great, but the real reason I’ll come back is because of your wonderful customer service.
I worked at a bank for 30 years. When I started my manager told me “There’s a bank on every corner. The only thing that really sets us apart is our customer service.” That is so true and something I’ll never forget.
Mahalo HeavyGlare. Keep up the good work.

My new friends from Heavyglare did the impossible, possible for me. After years of searching locally and in the internet for a company that would not tell me that it was impossible making lenses with my prescription to my Oakley's Flak Jacket XLJ Sunglasses, thanks to GOD , finally I found it.
The only option that I had for some years until I found them, was to have regular eyeglasses frames with mirrored polarized lenses, which I did not like, but it was the only option I could find. Now I am able to ride my bike, play golf and drive in sunny days with my lovely Oakley's again. If you are reading this testimonial and you have the same situation that I had, try Heavyglare, it is really possible for them.
I have never posted a testimonial for any a company, but they really impacted my life. Even though I can have any company in the island to do the lenses to my regular working eyeglasses, Heavyglare from now on, is the one to do all my Sun and regular eyeglasses lenses. Their technology, quality of materials and customer service is really state of the art, outstanding and unmatched.

I have to say that I was reluctant to order prescription sunglasses online but you guys really knocked it out of the park! First pair not exactly to my liking so you guys worked with me to make sure I was satisfied--glasses were received promptly and as ordered-absolutely perfect!--Sue is very knowledgeable and helpful in all decision making--thank you so much!
I would highly recommend Heavyglare to anyone considering a really nice pair of prescription sunglasses without any hesitation whatsoever!

I was out of the country last week and will be gone again this week so I really had to get the order made last Monday. I appreciate all your advice and I'm looking forward to trying the glasses.

Just wanted to say Thank You for the fine glasses that just arrived today - the Oakley Flak Jacket frames are terrific, and the lenses - clear and brown, are perfect - crystal clear vision all around, and they authoritatively snap in and out of the frames. I've ordered a few sets of Rx glasses and frames from you all, and have consistently received fine service, and great products.
Please pass this on to your supervisors and whoever else might be appropriate.

Hi Sue, I just received the frames today and they look and feel great! The RX worked out perfectly with the Shamir Digital Surfacing; a lot more clarity on the periphery of the lenses.
Thanks again for the great customer service. It was a pleasure getting another set of frames from Heavyglare.com.

Sue, The glasses were waiting for me at home. They are awesome!!! I was a little surprised at the thickness at first glance but remembered we went polycarbonate. Still they aren't that much thicker than my high index lenses I have now. They are probably the clearest glasses I have ever had. The fit is perfect. I have complete clarity as far as I can roll my eyes left to right and up and down and all thru the lenses.
It is so nice to drive into work heading South and not have sun from the east in my eyes and not seeing any frames. Here is a picture (took it by myself so you'll have to excuse the pose...haha).
I am heading to my eye doctor to show him and tell he's full of B.S. because they all said it couldn't be done and I would have all kinds of distortion!!!!
Thank you for all your help!! It has exceeded my expectations!!! I will heavily recommend for sure!

I recently received my new prescription in digitally surfaced lenses from Heavyglare Eyewear. Wow! I am so pleased with my final custom-made product.
Believe it or not, when I first received the new glasses and tried them on, I thought something was a little off - my vision wasn't as clear as I had expected. When I spoke of my concern to the sales representative at Heavyglare Eyewear, I was advised to give it a few days, as my eyes may take a little bit longer to adjust to the digitally surfaced lenses. I am so glad I took the advice... after a few days of letting my eyes relax and adjust to the new lenses, I feel like I have a whole new set of eyes - everything is crystal clear! Thank goodness I didn't give up on these digitally surfaced lenses.
Thank you, Heavyglare Eyewear, for encouraging me to try something new - I never would have known it was possible for me to see so clearly!

"Excellent Customer Service"
I take this opportunity to thank all the staff at HeavyGlare for their superb customer service in providing me the Oakley Jawbone Sunglass with prescription lenses tailor made to meet my specific requirements.
From my very first inquiry, I was getting "immediate" replies to my emails and all questions were answered right away. I placed the order as soon as possible and the glasses were shipped within the given time frame.
With some delay from the postal services, I recently received the shades, and this has been the best sunglasses I've ever worn. The lenses were just perfect despite my prescription having high numbers, and the lens being very curved. The digital surfacing used on the lenses made my vision crystal clear, as my other shades are not as sharp as this.
Ms. Susan and Ms. Heidi were always in touch with me to make sure that I receive the package and I cannot express the outstanding professionalism they have showed.
The best part of the whole transaction is that I have made some good friends in the US and in return they have gained a customer for life.
I will be glad to spread the word around.

Sue, First I want to say thanks for everything. Heavyglare has came through where others can't. I understand that with my prescription having such a high cylinder it is very hard to make the lenses. But Heavyglare did it in a wrap type frame. I am more than pleased with my Oakley Straight Jacket frames. The frames keep out the light from coming in from the side of the glasses. When I look through the lenses you made they are perfect. When in the bright sunlight, my eyes feel relaxed and squinting is now a thing of the past. Your service has been great and thanks for the follow up too.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I received my glasses this morning and they more than met my expectations. I took my first drive wearing them and the clarity and acuity was most impressive with the Drivewear lenses. Great choice!
During lunch today, I had my optometrist adjust the frames just a tad and they now fit perfectly; and while doing so, he positively remarked as to how well the lens were made and the work that was done crafting and notching them into the Oakley frames.
So, I guess the bottom line is, thanks to you both for a job well done. I sincerely appreciate it.

Please feel free to use the following as a testimonial on the website. Might alleviate the worry of other natural skeptics such as myself.
Within approximately two weeks of ordering prescription Oakley Bottle Rocket 2.0 frames from Heavyglare.com, they arrived at my door in excellent condition. I was initially concerned when I saw "China" on the stems of my glasses, but after inquiring about my worry, I was immediately called back and emailed by Grant. He gave a very detailed explanation regarding how Oakley had been purchased by Luxottica in 2007 and how they had recently switched manufacturing of ophthalmic stems to China. Upon calling Oakley's office in California for confirmation, they indeed did confirm what Grant had told me. While I am disappointed with Oakley's decision to relocate some of its manufacturing to China, I am excited about my new frames and am very pleased with the high level of attention and distinctive customer service exhibited by HeavyGlare.com. I certainly expect to use them for any future eyeglass purchases.

My name is Evan Miller. I contacted your company last week with a very important (important to me) order that I needed fulfilled in a very short time frame. Your team (consisting of Mark and Heidi) exceeded my expectations in their actions.
They not only got my order exactly right, but they got the order to me a day early! They look awesome. The bend in the lens takes a bit to get used to, but they work perfect!
I understand the importance of customer relationships and job accuracy… These days it's hard to find a company (especially through internet based orders) that will perform to the levels that clients should expect. In my short workings with your company your employees have far exceeded the level of service I have ever received from an internet based order.

Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know I received the Rudy Project Kybo sunglasses yesterday. I remember when we first spoke about these you said I was in for a treat regarding advances in technology in relation to being able to make the curve with my prescription. I can't believe how tight the lenses fit into the frames! I also LOVE the glasses. They fit my face so much better then the other Rudy Project glasses I had for five years -although great glasses themselves. But these are just much more suited to my face size and shape and wrap tighter so as to block perimeter sun glare and so forth. Plus the frame is really very sharp aesthetically speaking.
Thanks for all your help in choosing these glasses. I really appreciate it and the work you guys do at Heavy Glare!

Hi Grant, I just wanted to let you know I got my Oakley Straight Jackets in the mail a week or so ago, and they are perfect! Thank you so much for all your help and expertise on the phone when I ordered. I will definitely recommend you guys to friends and family looking for any of your offerings. I am very pleased and I know they would be too.
I had one question, however. Is there any kind of scratch protection built into the lenses? Was that an extra cost feature I didn't order? I've lived with glasses most of my life and I'm pretty careful, but I wanted to know HOW careful I needed to be with the Oakley's.
Thanks for your time!
ANSWER: Regarding the scratch-resistance. These should have the same scratch-resistance as the stock Oakley lenses. They should be treated with some care, mainly with regard to cleaning. If you use an alcohol-free lens cleaner, and a cotton cloth, you should be fine. Just don't grind anything that gets o the lens into it. @Heavyglare Eyewear

Hello Heidi, I received the glasses in time for my trip! Thanks! They look great. They took a bit of getting used to, I suspect due to an interaction between the prescription and the lens curvature but overall they worked and I am getting used to them. The coverage is amazing. There is practically no leakage of outside light when I wear them. They will be great for the bright days while outside.

I have had nothing but great experiences with this company! In the last two years I have purchased the exact same pair of prescription sunglasses three times (I know I need to be more careful)! Mind you, this is a pair of glasses that Lensescrafters said couldn't done due to lens curvature. Well, each time Heavyglare had no problem cranking these out in less than two weeks. A consistent product at a consistently low price. When first pricing prescription designer glasses I was quoted from $500-600, Heavyglare, $300!!! I will continue to do business with this company as long as I keep breaking and loosing my sunglasses.

I received my glasses today. They arrived in fine shape, and I am very pleased with the quality of the workmanship. The fit and finish of the custom lenses in the Oakley Flak Jacket is great. The clarity of the optics is actually much better than my regular glasses from my optometrist in the states!! I have not been able to check the transition qualities as of yet due to conditions here in Iraq being less than ideal for outdoor "activities" today, but I will definitely let you know if I have any problems/questions.
Thank you for your help and supplying me with what promises to be a fantastic product.

Mark, I ordered the Rec Specs Cross Trainers with the regular high index lenses. I've had them a few weeks now and I'm very satisfied with them. The frames are heavy enough that they hide the thickness of the lenses quite well. I opted not to get the polarized lenses as I don't like how polarized lenses black out LCD displays when I'm driving or riding.
All in all I'm extremely satisfied. I'll recommend your services to others who need high prescription eyewear.

I recently placed an order for prescription lenses in an Oakley half-jacket frame. The order went through no problems, and upon arrival I was satisfied with the process.
Recently, I was tasked for a short-notice deployment to an island. I made sure to take my glasses, but was unsure how they'd hold up to the heat/humidity/sand. I am extremely surprised at how well they performed in removing the glare and allowing me to do my job without eye fatigue. They were used constantly from dusk till dawn, and even in my off-duty time. I didn't take particularly good care of them, however they've held up without a scratch through all the drops and times they've been thrown in a uniform pocket without any protection.
Thanks for a great product. I've already recommended your site to several people with prescription eyeglasses, and will continue to do so.

One thing I really like about them is it seems like my vision is corrected, then I'm wearing designer glasses on top. They are also the darkest tint I've ever had, and it's much appreciated on these bright winter mornings.
Also curious, do you have a retail showroom in St. Paul? Just wondering since a few times a year I'm in the area and if I ever decide to pick up another pair down the line, it would be nice to see some selections in person.

This past weekend was the first chance I had to use them for an extended ride and they worked out very well! The reduced peripheral vision (as compared with my ordinary glasses) takes some getting used to, but I really like the wind protection they provide and the lens color is perfect. Thanks for all the time you spent with me. Most places wouldn't even take an order with my prescription, let alone give me the personal attention you gave me, and from an experienced rider to boot!

THANKS SO MUCH! The simple instructions on how to adjust the temples were exactly what I needed. It worked! The process worked great. A little timid at first, but then felt more confident as I was told the temples were "pretty strong" with every Vistana order. Or, maybe it's just me!
Your quick response & helpful info was GREATLY appreciated.

At the end of last week I ordered a set of Cocoons from one of your competitors online. I had already been to your site, but you and the competitor were selling the item at the same price, but they were including several freebies along with the order, so I ordered from them. Two days later I received a reply to my order that said they were out of stock and would be shipping my order out sometime in the next two weeks. This is Las Vegas in the summer; I don't have 2 weeks to wait for sunglasses. I wrote to them to cancel my order and immediately came to your site to order the sunglasses.
On 8/7/06 I placed the order, on 8/8/06 I received a delivery confirmation, and today on 8/10/06 had the sunglasses waiting for me in my mailbox. I just wanted to give you a big thanks for the service and speed of delivery. I'll definitely be doing business with you again soon.

Mark, Thanks for your efforts and your prompt response.

From my experience to this point, these positive reviews are well warranted.

I found your web-site because I was searching for a pair of Clic goggles that I'd seen in the Sky Mall catalog during a recent flight.
I ordered them through your web-site.I found the ease of using your website outstanding. Your price was the best and free shipping made it even better. I used the goggles while boating at the Colorado river and they were outstanding.
My husband wanted a pair too, so I ordered them yesterday with a pair of sun glasses for me. You have the best ordering system I have ever used and the follow-up email with your tracking links is genius.
You have the largest selection of sun glasses and goggles that I have ever found and you also carry the smaller sizes that I need, which is much better than the Sun Glass Hut or other similar places.

AND, regarding Cocoon quality versus FitOver's, my neighbor showed up Saturday evening with my "lost" Fit-Over's -- I had left them at his house. I had a sporting event to work yesterday, so I took both the new Cocoons and the worn-in FitOver's with me. It took about two minutes to decide the FitOver's were going into the spare drawer. The Cocoons are more comfortable and of better material quality. Can't beat a side-by-side comparison.

Also, I like the fit and feel of the Cocoons much better than the FitOver's.
Again, thank you for the prompt (and free!) shipment. I'm very impressed.

I wanted to send you an email and tell you how very happy I am with my order of Ray Ban prescription sunglasses.
When I first tried to get the frames (Daddy-O Ray Ban), I went to a local lens store, and they told me, oh no ... it was not possible to get that prescription in those frames.
Well, I am very persistent and decided someone, somewhere had to be able to make the sunglasses I wanted in the frame I wanted.
I found Heavyglare in an online search, I own a web site also, for Horse Racing, so I tend to think of myself as Internet savvy.
I phoned up the order # and spoke to Mark. He was very articulate and enthusiastic, and told me he could have a great pair of sunglasses made for me and that Pearle(the local lens place) might not have had the same equipment required to attempt my correction and make the lenses size fit in the frames.
I like Mark, I think he really did a good job, and gave me a lot of options and choices and told me your company could make the glasses. I felt good after talking to him.
About 1 week later, Graham emailed me to let me know about the glasses being ready, but that he noticed on his own that the lens maker had not correctly tinted my lenses blue, and did I want to keep them Silver or have them corrected.
His sincerity and attention to details saved me from having the wrong glasses.
My house was just sold in NY, and I am about to literally leave NY in days, and I told Graham, I did understand about the lenses and did not want to be upset, but that I would be leaving soon and would not be able to get my glasses if I could not have them by a certain date.
Well, Graham kept me updated and told me he would make sure I had my glasses before I left.
He kept his word, I just received my Ray Ban Daddy O sunglasses today, and I have them for my drive and for the intense Florida Sunshine.
Thank you so much for a great job, and a pleasant staff of people.
I will be sure to order from Heavyglare in the future when I need new Sunglasses or I just want to get something new and different.

Hi there – I am a recent customer of yours and wanted to give you some feedback on the wonderful experience.
I ordered a pair of sunglasses from your store back in early August and wanted to let you know I had the most seamless sales/delivery experience I have ever had online. I needed the sunglasses within a matter of days to play in a national softball tourney in San Diego and had just canceled my order from another online store because they didn't have it on order and couldn't get them to me in time.
To be fair, the experience may have something to do with the fact that I live in Minneapolis, but thought you deserved the kudos regardless. I ordered these sunglasses online from your store, but didn't bother to even look at where you are located. I got a call from the office saying they had trouble getting my CC info from the web, which I then gave. I then got another phone call the same day from Graham telling me that he lives just a couple blocks from me and wondering if I wanted him to drop these off on his way home from work so I wouldn't have 'next day' shipping charges.
Now I have heard stories of this kind of customer service in the past that are far and few between, but never have I had anyone offer to drop a purchase off, and in effect, never had this experience myself. I personally manage 30 direct reports at a software development company and I try daily to instill this type of motivation and genuine care for our clients for the people that report to me, but I have to say I'm very impressed at the dedication and general "just being a nice guy" this employee of yours was/is.
I will highly recommend your store to friends and colleagues.

After my latest visit to my local optometrist, I stated that I wanted a good pair of sunglasses along with my regular glasses. The optician there suggested that I get the Nike GDO Squares with the ML lenses. I liked the look and ordered them. Two weeks later, I received them but couldn't hardly see out of them at all. I returned them and two weeks later, they came back. Still I couldn't see properly out of them after wasting a month. I had to settle for my "usual" 6-base wire frame models like I have had to do for years now. (Diopters -6.50 in both eyes). I was really bummed as I wanted a nice pair of wraps that normal people get to wear.
That's when I found HeavyGlare.com on the internet. Mo was very helpful in selecting a frame and lens that was right for me. He suggested the Rudy Project Heritage frame. When I received them (which was within two weeks with the colored mirror coating...and just in time for a long camping trip), lo and behold, I could actually see clearly through them and they looked great. I was so happy I immediately ordered another pair of sunglasses. Those too arrived in one week with the same excellent result. Thank you Mo! You have been very helpful and patient with me. I just want to let your boss Grant, know what a valued optician he has.
I highly recommend HeavyGlare and SunRay Optical. They really do care about their customer's satisfaction. Now I'm just thinking of what I want next. ;-)

I just wanted to write you a quick thank you. I normally don't do this kind of thing as we are all busy little bees nowadays scratching and clawing to get things done in a timely fashion. It only seems we take the time to write letters when there was a problem or wrong doing instead of great service. That is basically why I am writing to you today – to show my appreciation for a job well done. I had been looking all over for the pair of Ray-Ban Curve sunglasses for several days, in fact I had placed orders for other pairs with several other companies only for them to call and say that they were out of stock. You were my saving grace and last hope. I was flying out of town and had my old Ray-Ban Karmas stolen from me right before I was to flight out. You came to the rescue and not only did you have them in stock and get them to me the next day but actually were LESS EXPENSIVE than your competition for the same pair! I felt you went above and beyond the call of duty and to see that you were the owner only makes me feel that much better. Keep up the great work buddy, you will continue to thrive with that kind of customer service and attention to your clients. If I am in the need of another pair there is only one place I am going to go from here on out. Thanks again for your superior work Grant!

I recently contacted HeavyGlare having been referred by Wiley X. I was looking for a pair of glasses for my medium astigmatism. While struggling to choose a pair of glasses from your wide selection, Mark Busse became involved. We traded several emails as I worked towards a decision and ultimately Mark was able to steer me towards a different pair of glasses that will suit my needs much better. I am a turret gunner currently on tour in Iraq. In addition to answering the 6 or 7 emails that I sent, Mark contacted my optician to get my pupilary distance, a piece of information that I didn't have when I initially placed my order.
I just wanted to pass on my appreciation of Mark, working on behalf of HeavyGlare, who put a lot of effort into making sure I got the right product and was able to make an informed decision. I look forward to receiving my new glasses.

Thanks allot. It's nice to know there's still people out there who know about customer service and keeping them informed. Qualities of that sort often lead to commendations placed to managers and repeat business. Thank you, and have a great day.

I received my Bolle Canebrake prescription sunglasses today and I am very pleased. Thank you for all of the assistance that was provided to me - my experience with your company was excellent. Initially, I was somewhat apprehensive in ordering prescription sunglasses on-line, but dealing with your company and the end result was most rewarding. You now have a customer who will return to you in the future, and I will certainly pass the word around of my good experience.
Just wanted to let you guys know I received Peppers Compass sunglasses today and I am very pleased with them. Script is very accurate and they look great. Hopefully I will not lose this pair at the river, but if I do , I will certainly give you guys a shout.

Good quality frames! The prescription lenses are perfect! Warp speed Shipping... free!!! (Received glasses within 7 business days of order!) Lets see...Did I leave anything out.....Oh yes, I will definitely order from you guys again!!
I wanted to thank you for your help - these Wiley-X SG1 have made a HUGE difference out here in Baghdad for me (comfort level and tactical level). I'll tell everyone with bad eyes out here that got screwed on prescriptions that heavyglare.com can take care of them.

Thank you to everyone at Sunray for being so nice and easy to work with. You have confirmed my belief that there are still companies in the
U.S. that believe in customer service.

I just wanted to send my numerous thanks for a wonderful experience! I hadn't been riding my motorcycle at night because I couldn't wear my eyeglasses without the fear of them blowing off so I ordered the Wiley-X CQC goggle with a prescription insert. I did not expect them for another 2 weeks so when I headed out for a ride today with my boyfriend and I noticed a box on my step I was very surprised to see my goggles!
You have outstanding customer service!! I love them, they work wonderfully and Mo, you were a pleasure to work with on this!! I also had ordered a pair for my boyfriend and he likes them as well! You have terrific customer service and I will recommend you to my friends!

Bought a pair in prescription Wiley X-50. They fit and work very well. Use them for driving, and on my bike. Service was excellent. Delivery time was exceptional. I am recommending Heavyglare to my friends and also at work. Darrell Howard

Afghanistan is a very harsh environment, these lenses for my SG-1s will be a life saver this summer when the dirt and wind really kicks in. Moleek, your lead optician answered all my questions and was an excellent source of info. The glasses got here quickly. Good work! Simply put, you have a customer for life.
Thanks so much,

I purchased a pair of the lenses and eye cups for a pair of Wiley X SG-1 sunglasses from your store about 8 months ago when I was in the desert. I was a soldier that was deployed to Iraq and I have what you may call a unique prescription for glasses.
Your company was the only company that help me. Thanks to you I was able to sport my Wiley X Glasses through a tough time in my life. They also help me when I needed to travel up and down some dangerous routes while transporting supplies from base to base. Again I want to thank your company for the prescription lenses. However, when I was in a move I misplaced my glasses and seem to have lost them back in Iraq.
I am now back in the states but I still want to get another pair of the lenses. I remember the lenses were about $100 and the eyecups were something like $15. I will email you my prescription like before and get you to send me another pair of the lenses for the Wiley X SG-1 glasses.

Just a quick note to let you know that I am extremely pleased with my Rx sunglasses. GREAT job! I can hardly believe it. After years of getting 6 base lenses stuffed into 8 base frames, this is quite refreshing!
I wanted to thank you for providing amazing customer service to your clients. I worked with one of your reps, Chad, who was incredibly concise and helpful in assisting me with my purchase. He was able to meet all of my specifications and certainly was able to sell me on more than one pair!
I shipped out so fast earlier this year, that I didn't get a chance to thank you for the awesome job you did on my RayBan prescription sunglasses. You turned the order around in just a few days, and overnighted the glasses to me in time for me to get them before we loaded the C5 for a Middle Eastern destination.
You made a pair of glasses my local doctors said was impossible - and you did it fast. Eight months into this deployment, and they are standing up to the salt spray and abuse on the boats, as well as the desert sand in the air...and they still look cool! The best pair of sunglasses I've ever had.
Thanks a bunch!
King George, VA
You may remember me as CPT Dennis L. You guys made sure that I got my stuff by sending it to FT. Campbell to ensure I had them in time for deployment. I like to reward good customer service, so I have been telling everyone I know to use your company. Thanks again.
To further reward good customer service, I am had attached is a spreadsheet of prescriptions that we need for our guys. We will need them for the SG-1s. You guys will provide the eye cups as well. We will need 1 set of clear and smoke. Let me know if you have any questions.

Combat Proven! -I serve in the United States Marines. The Wiley X SG-1's are the best eye protection and proven in the worst conditions imaginable. I have served 20 years in the Marines and have never had eye protection that was this versatile. Inter-changable arms, straps and lenses all in one package. Wind, Sun and Sand....it doesn't matter, 120 degree heat of the Iraqi desert to the frozen mountains of Korea, these are the best!
I am a cop and a firearms instructor. In addition to that I wear prescription glasses. I have tried clip-on sunglasses and they were uncomfortable. I found the web site and decided to make the investment. These glasses are worth every red cent! They fit great and look great. You can run in them, sweat in them, and even FIGHT in them. If for whatever reason these glasses break I would replace them immediately. Ordering was easy, got my prescription from my doctor and made the phone call. Had my glasses in one week, great service!!

I want to thank you and your staff for your professionalism and the simplicity of your customer service and site. I received my new Killer Loop glasses this past week and their is not enough kind words in the English language for me to describe your site and business. I am already recommending you to everyone in town that I see in the market for new glasses.
I recently returned from Iraq wounded. My face received shrapnel to the left side froahoom a Rocket Propelled Grenade blast. My eyes were untouched because I was wearing my Wiley X SG-1 goggles. I am now home in the states to recuperate from my injuries. I plan on buying another pair before I go back to Iraq . Please let your employees know that your product is wonderful and saved this Army soldiers eye sight.

I received my Wiley X SG-1 Transitional grey glasses/ goggles on Saturday as my friend returned from his trip, and I was a bit scared as I tried on the glasses and they are a bit wide for my face, they are much more tight when I wear them with the elastic band. As well the day was very cloudy and I didn't´t see the darkening of the lenses until the next day when it was sunny, I must admit I am still amazed of the quality of your product, I am really happy, I can even read my speedometer !!! I want to thank you for your patience and help, for that is something you do not find everyday. If I will need the darker lenses I will contact you.
Thank you again.
The corrected prescription sunglasses arrived just fine, and I have field tested them—I can read as well as see distance with the grey, polarized, no-line bifocal lens. Please know how much I have appreciated the excellent service your people have provided, especially Chad and Grant. Their prompt and courteous responses made this whole internet order very satisfactory.
I fly several times a month and find the sunglasses very helpful both in the air, and even indoors. The lens coating as well as frame allow my glare-sensitive eyes to really open up.
I will gladly recommend SunRay Optical to anyone who is looking for quality prescription sunglasses.
Thanks again for superb customer service.

I received the Romer II glasses yesterday and they look just GREAT!! I will be sending them off to my son in Iraq today with a bunch of other goodies.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for such a quick order completion and delivery!! All of you are such a blessing and I know I will be talking to you in the future! As long as my son is deployed, you KNOW we will be needing good optical wear!!!
Have a wonderful day!!
I just wanted to tell all you folks how satisfied I am with my new sunglasses. At first I had my doubts. After I fitted the glass to my face and wore them while driving and outside, I am so glad I bought these sunglasses from you all. They are wonderful. Glare is no problem and I see where others will be squinting their eyes. Thank you very much for filling my prescription sunglasses as ordered. You all are great and I will be your customer the next time around. You all have a great day every day.
I recently purchased a pair of Wiley X XL-1 with prescription. I have been using them for motorcycling for about 2 weeks now, and I have to say I love them. What I am most happy about was the prescription was right on, and crystal clear on the first day. The regular glasses I have I had to return 4 times for them to be corrected. Your labs ability to make my prescription work in a wrapped eye glass is outstanding. I have told all my friends about this service, and hope they will visit your site. I know when I am due for another prescription this will be where I look for service.
Thank you very much.

Steve, Just wanted to thank you again for your outstanding customer service. I can't tell you how it makes you outshine other businesses. You were cordial enough to send a different frame to try after my husbands glasses came, and now you are making me an alternative pair after the ones I received didn't fit right. I will continue to use your services anytime I need glasses in the future. Bravo and job well done. Thank you -
Hey, just wanted to drop you a note saying how much i like my new rx sunglasses, bolle swishers fit great, I never thought I could have a pair of wraps made with my rx until i found your company. I will highly recommend you in the future!
Hi Folks, received the Chubasco prescription sunglasses today and I am very pleased. Great price and fast shipping. I will recommend you to all my friends.
Flower Mound, Texas
I just wanted to say thanks for for a great job! I ordered a pair of bolle Vanadium and a pair of the Rudy Project Keja, both in a tough prescription and they're perfect. Nobody in town would even touch these glasses and my prescription. You've got some very helpful staff and excellent service.
La Crosse, WI
Just to let you know, you have a satisfied customer who will recommend your company whenever possible.
While we did have a bit of confusion with the order, it was shipped overnight to me and arrived in time for "the big ride" that I had planned over the weekend. I do appreciate the extra effort to get things squared away for me.

I want to pass along my appreciation for the fine service I received from Chad on my recent purchase of prescription Ray-ban sunglasses. Chad was courteous and helpful throughout. I will be sure to recommend your firm to my friends. Give Chad a raise!!
I received my prescription Wiley SG-1 from your shop about 5 days ago. I've had an opportunity to use them now and I wanted to let you know they work great. As sunglasses, they are a little too large for my face and head, but as goggles, they are great! The prescription is right on, and the look is just as you described and promised. My prescription is really high, and no one else could get it in a frame that curved as much as the SG-1. This frame provides great peripheral vision as well. And the time you told me it would take to get them to me was exactly when you delivered them.
I'll be shopping for regular sunglasses in the near future, and your shop will be first place I look. Thanks for doing what you promised you could do. My new Harley-Davidson Deuce and my riding goggles look great together!
I received my new prescription panoptx glasses you people made for me yesterday. They are awesome! Grant you did a great job... Thanks
Grant, Words cannot express how much we "Thank You" for the great service you have shown us. My son is "Iraq" bound—but at least he can "SEE"—
A Thousand Thanks,
I wanted to thank y'all for fixing my Wiley X glasses so soon. The bi-focal is just perfect now. Matter of fact, I'm completely happy with the way the glasses turned out. The blue mirror, the bi-focal, everything is great! Grant has been more than helpful and patient and I would like to thank you for that. You will get more of my business, and I will tell others how helpful y'all were to me, and how good the glasses turned out. Y'all keep up the good work and great customer relations.
Thank you again,
I just wanted to send a quick thank you to you and your staff. A few weeks ago I placed an order for a prescription pair of sunglasses. Grant was a great help by answering both questions I had and other questions I didn't even think of. Unfortunately the frames I picked were out of stock. However, unlike most companies, Grant took the time to call me more than once to let me know the status of the order and possible alternatives.
This is something most companies won't do ...I would highly recommend your services to anyone who asked. Keep up the good work.
First thing that I need to do is qualify myself as to why I can attest to how good Cocoon Glasses are.
I am 79 years old. Have been fishing the Laguna Madre-Baffin Bay area since I was 8 years old. You name it, I have probably fished with it.
As for dark fishing glasses, I have owned and used many different pair and shades, some pretty good, some pretty bad.
BUT, The pair of Fit Over, amber colored glasses that I bought, used for about three months, then lost while running in the dark with a spot light were the very best that I have ever had the good fortune to use.
Rest assured I don't have the greatest eyesight in the world, have worn glasses since I was twelve years old and even had an implant in my right eye some 3 years ago and will probably have another in my left next year.
I love to fish as you probably do too. Therefore, anything that gives me the edge, I love.
Friend, you won't ever regret owning a pair and will be as I was when I thought to myself. "Why in the world couldn't I have had these when I was younger.

It just occurred to me that I never thanked you for your superb service. I am very pleased with my Prescription Anarchy sunglasses and the quality and ease of service I received from heavyglare.com. I will be sure to recommend you guys to my friends and family.
Several weeks ago I purchased a pair of black Bolle Swisher sunglasses with prescription lenses. I'd like to take a moment to thank all of you for the superb customer service and for the great pair of sunglasses, not to mention the reasonable price. I received the sunglasses in time for my vacation, and I wore them all the time. Should anyone I know ever be interested in buying prescription sunglasses, Heavyglare.com will certainly get my recommendation.

Thank you for shipping my sunglasses by Airborne Express. You and your staff have been most helpful and timely. I hope to do business with your company in years to come. You are the first and only folks who would consider making wrap sunglasses for me. I will mention you to my friends.
Again thank you, and if there is anything I may do for you, please do not hesitate to call.

Just wanted to let you know I received my SG-1 glasses. Also, wanted to let you know how happy I am with them. Have used both sunglasses and clear. I had several people ask about them at our local Hog meeting last night. So I am handing out the extra cards that you sent to me. What most impressed me is that I could have my prescription and have two sets of lenses so I didn't have to carry two sets of glasses.
Again Thanks for all your help!
Thank you for your prompt shipment of the Panoptx Viento sunglasses I ordered. Unfortunately Airborne Express screwed up and I am not going to get my glasses in time for my Sturgis trip. I contacted Airborne and they said they had a mix up and my package missed.
I just got back from Sturgis and I love the glasses!! Wish I would have had them for our trip!! Will defiantly purchase from you again. Do you have a mailing list or email list you send out to?? If so, please add my name to it.
Thanks again! Kimberly Russo
I received my new Ultrasol sunglasses from you last week and was headed for the lake for the weekend to do a little boating. I used them all weekend and I was finding myself not being able to take them off because they were so comfortable and crystal clear to see out of. I am very pleased with these sunglasses and they are by far the best sunglasses I have ever owned. Thank you very much!!!
I received my sunglasses yesterday they exceeded all of my expectations. Fit, clarity, frame style and lens color are perfect. Would also like to thank you for your assistance and patience while I was trying to find the right frame that would work with my prescription. It seems like every business on the Internet today has jumped on the "customer service /customer satisfaction band wagon ". Very few deliver, your company DOES. Have recommended your site to several people and will continue to do so. Look forward to future transactions.
I recently ordered a pair of sunglasses from Heavyglare.com, and I was absolutely thrilled with the quality of the product I received and the prompt response on your part to my order. For the reasonable price I paid, the service I received far surpassed my expectations. I will be recommending Heavyglare.com to everyone I know, and look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
I just thought I would drop you a line on my new glasses. They are great!!!!
I can ride a day and eyes don't get dry.
Thanks for all your help!!
Thank you for your prompt response to my enquiry.
Mistakes are made but your actions in rectifying the problem have shown customer service at its best.
If you treat all your customers like this you will certainly have no problem in building a strong and loyal customer base.
There was some disagreement as to when exactly I was to receive my order when having an item shipped "overnight air". But the company is the best I've seen in customer service when it came to straightening out this miscommunication. They were very courteous, straight forward, and the manufacturer to send out another order "overnight" to be shipped to a different location where I could receive the package. I would highly recommend this company and would order from Heavyglare.com again.
Thank you so much for your great service, what a breath of fresh air. I recd' the order today.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate you.
I just ordered a pair of Panoptx Cyclone glasses for my wife. The process was user friendly and the layout of your site also easy to navigate and provided all the information I could ask for.
