DAVE COUTIE, Partially Color-Blind
— Thank you for the prompt service. I tried the glasses at the flying field yesterday. I had one word when I put them on: WOW!!!!!
I talked to the Zurich people in California before I ordered them and because I am partially red/green color blind I wanted to know if they could help. They recommeded the medium rose lenses. When I put them on I couldn't see the rose tint at all but all the red colours just popped out. The greens are more intense as well. Before I had trouble if a dark red plane flew below tree level – it would blend in with the trees, but with the glasses it now really stands out. They have definitely made flying more enjoyable.

M. BARRINGER, Eye Sensitive Patient 
The Zurich Extreme Glare Sunglasses are the absolute best sunglasses in the world. No exaggeration. I really do recommend them to everyone, even my doctors. I have the worst sensitivity to glare due to an autoimmune condition. These glasses totally block the glare. It is amazing. When driving, everything is clear and traffic lights are crisp. They are like gold to me and always within my reach. Customer service is A+ and Bruce was very patient with my questions.

BILL SULLIVAN, Pilot

Your prescription sunglasses are a truly unique solution for those of us who need glasses for distance work (like flying)... I spent three months trying to find an acceptable solution using all the resources I could find in the S.F. Bay area, and struck out until I contacted you. You are the only entity I can find that is able to do the prescription adjustment for wrap-around styles, and you nailed mine exactly. Glare reduction is as good as the very high-end polarized shades I have been using, but the clear vision is something I don't know how I managed without. To top it all off, your pricing is very competitive relative to the inferior products I tried first. Thanks again, Bruce.

BOB HOUIN,

Radio Control Airplane Pilot

—I wanted to send you a note to tell you how happy I am with your prescription sunglasses. I had a set of the original over the glass sunglasses and was really happy with the rose tinting for my RC airplane flying. I especially liked being able to find the exact frames I liked and having you match the lenses. I can say that after a couple of years of using them that I am still extremely happy with the purchase. I use them flying, driving and anytime I need sunglasses. The best thing I can say is that when these are no longer usable and I am in need of new ones I will be calling you for a replacement.

GREG SHANE, PRESIDENT, 

UAV Flight School

—One of the biggest problems pilots and student pilots face is glare from the sun, either direct or reflected. My first exposure to Extreme Glare sunglasses was the Zurich Glasses that fit over prescription glasses. After talking with Bruce I decided to order a pair of Extreme Glare prescription sunglasses. Vision was perfect, they were comfortable and looked great! I recommend them to anyone who spends time in the sun—especially pilots and mature individuals who have a hard time seeing their R/C aircraft.

MARTY GUREWIZ
Just wanted to thank you for my new pair of Rx glasses. Just like the other ones I ordered from you, they are great. Whenever I wear them everything is sharper than when I wear my regular Rx glasses. You went the extra mile due to some difficulties on my end and I can't thank you enough. You have a customer for life.

ROBERT BRENNER, Radio Control Helicopter Pilot

The prescription lenses you coated for me are the best pair of sunglasses I have ever owned. A friend of mine showed me his Z-XG sunglasses. We both fly RC Helicopters. He told me that the brown color made it easier to see them. At the time, I was using your non-prescription glasses. When I put his on, I was amazed at how much clearer things were. Shortly after I received this pair of prescription Z-XG sunglasses, I showed them to this same friend. He was amazed and I'll bet he becomes a prescription customer of yours soon. He already owns a pair of "fit over—Extreme Glare" sunglasses.

INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURER AT HI-TEC 50 PEAKS
—On the 12th of July I stood on top of Mt. Rainier in Washington State, making that the final and 50th peak that I reached in my cross country odyssey. The Zurich sunglasses that I used were great. They are a necessity when climbing and hiking in the bright sun that I encountered throughout the country. Not only did your sunglasses protect my eyes but they changed intolerable glare into comfortable light and increased visibility because of that.

BILL MEIER, Mariner


I became aware of Zurich sunglasses at a three-day collegiate open ocean sailing regatta. What a difference! Water reflections and the clarity were noticeably improved. The coach was also a snow skier and stated he loved wearing them on a bright day and noticed improved visibility at higher altitudes. I was immediately sold... I could only say they are the best sunglasses I have ever purchased and the price was unexpectedly better than other so called "name glasses".

JEFFREY SHOOK
I cannot say enough good things about my Extreme Glare sunglasses. I bought them to use when flying my giant scale aircraft (to) be able to maintain a clear, non-glare, and non-silhouette flying conditions critical flying safely. I have come to use my Z-XG's everyday for driving during the daytime. My Z-XG's make the colors pop and it allows me to see even when it is raining out. The Z-XG's make the yellow and white lines on the road pop out with clarity which improves the visibility of not only lane position but road hazards. The workmanship is extremely high quality and anyone would be hard pressed to find such a great pair of sunglasses elsewhere.

TECHNICAL CLIMBING LEADER FOR MOUNTAIN RESCUE, DONALD D. MCINTYRE

Zurich's polycarbonate wraparound sunglasses are the best choice for serious mountaineers, trekkers or outdoor enthusiasts. During our successful ascent of the north peak of Mt. Everest we found the Zurich Lexan High Tech Sunglasses to be the most remarkable ones any of us had ever used. We wore our Zurich’s during the entire expedition without eye or ear wear discomfort. These sunglasses are the perfect combination of style, comfort and protection. Bravo to Zurich from Mt. Everest!

TECHNICAL CLIMBING EXPERT FOR CHILI CON CHO OYO EXPEDITION, DONALD D. MCINTYRE

The high impact, lexan dual tint sunglasses from Zurich were the lightest and most useful sunglasses any of us have used on any previous expedition. They blocked all UV rays at altitudes over 20,000 feet and consistently keep the wind out of our eyes. Our Sherpas thought that these were the best glasses that they have used or worn. We would recommend these products to any serious outdoor enthusiasts who require the ultimate in UV protection, as well as stylish good looks!

RICH MADSEN

Just a note to say THANKS for a great product. I really appreciate quality eye wear. For the first time in my life, when wearing the "Zurichs" I can now go outside on a sunny day and not squint. I'm 47, and an in-active reserve Marine (no such thing as an Ex-Marine) and I don't compliment very many products, but yours is an exception.

GARY STRAKA
Thank you for providing the highest quality American made product. I have tried many other high end sunglasses over the years, but none have been as comfortable as yours. I love the gradient tint and they are so light I'll forget I'm wearing them. There is something special about Zurich USA sunglasses. They reduce eye strain and I can't believe how well I can see when my heading takes me directly into the sun. I have recommended your sunglasses to all of my friends that fly, fish, or drive. I got my 1st pair from you at the Miami International Boat Show and my wife got a couple pairs 7 or 8 years ago, and still using both. I would like to nominate Zurich USA for an award, you have such a quality American made product at such a reasonable price. Keep up the good work! Can't wait to get my new Zurich USA rose wraparound!

JED ORME

Now that I have been using my Rx sunglasses you made, I thought I should let you know how extremely pleased i am with them. I couldn't be happier. When I compare them to my old prescription sunglasses, there is such a huge difference in the clarity & glare reduction. i have been using them in my RC flying and truly believe they are helping me to see my airplanes much more clearly and at greater distances than before. Thank you for your great product and for the customer service that I have always received over the years!

BILL BARTOLUCCI
I have purchased quite a few sunglasses over the years and I can say without a doubt that the "Extreme Glare" prescription sunglasses that I purchased from you are the best sunglasses I have ever owned. Objects that are reflecting bright light or objects that are in shaded areas are much better defined, and are much more clearly seen. Colors seem to be more vivid and the contrast is sharper than any other lenses I have ever used. These sunglasses are so good, I now wear them all the time while I am outside (much more than any my previous sunglasses). Thank you for making this technology available.

ROY MILLS
The last 2 sets have been home runs as far as sunglasses are concerned. The medium rose color is great as it keeps the sunlight dark enough so that my eyes do not tire from wearing them all day when I'm out on the project site. Your suggestion of finding a set of rims that were comfortable for me to wear was right to the mark. Your magic of putting your "Extreme" lenses in them was the answer for me. Being a surfer type of the mid 1960's, I became enamored with the Wayfarer type surfer shades of the era. When you said you could fit the "Extreme" lenses in them I was thrilled. This pair of glasses is the "Grand Slam" for me.

BILL

"Dear Bruce,

I thought it is about time that I let you know how pleased I am with my "Extreme Glare" glasses. They are light and a pleasure to wear. They are great to use when driving as well as to fly my radio controlled planes. As you know the danger of flying into the sun, losing sight of the plane and then trying to find it in the big sky is unnerving. It is expensive to not get it back in sight in time for the ground to be avoided. With your glasses I do not lose visual Contact. Last, but not least, the glasses look good. 

Have a great summer and good health!" 

JOHN RISBROUGH
My new glasses are great! Thanks for all your help and patience on making my difficult prescription work. I will come to you again when I need another pair, as well as sharing my experience with Zurich. Thanks again.

TONY DI LEO, TDL MODEL SYSTEMS
I have made it an important habit to wear my Zurich original glasses whenever near and around model airplanes and I am sure glad I was wearing them on that day. A small dent was left by the spinner which bounced off my glasses. I have eight pair in every color. Thank you for a great product.

BONNIE MIKOLEIT, NEWPORT BEACH, CA
I have LOVED them since the first time I put them on! Even though it was so long ago, Over the years I have thought it was the best $65 I ever spent on anything!! I need to get a new pair. None of the (other) sunglasses that I have worn even come close to being as good as my Zurich’s. Thank you for your great product and for the customer service that I have always received over the years!

CLEE CHILDRESS

—I am an old timer R/C flyer. The other day at the field, I had a 4 stroke engine backfire and spin off the nut, prop and spinner. Luckily, I was wearing my rose colored Zurich glasses. Some of the parts struck the left lens leaving a bad scratch right at the center of my vision. They are the best eye injury insurance that I can think of and afford.

DOUG KILLEBREW
— Hi Bruce I wanted to let you know how happy I am with my sunglasses. The prescription has helped me a bunch and flying R/C has just become a new world for me. I can’t believe what I had gotten used to. 


MARK DEMMA
Hi Bruce, I've been thoroughly enjoying my glasses. They have been fantastic at the flying field. The contrast of colors is brilliant, and maintaining my model's orientation has never been easier. Thank you for not only living up to my expectations but exceeding them. 

MICHAEL ONEIL
Dear Bruce, I just received my Extreme Glare (XG) Sunglasses, and all I can say is WOW!!! I fly RC airplanes. and the glasses have made a world of difference in the glare reduction, and improved visibility. The view is crisp, clear with absolutely no glare. The difference between these glasses and regular sunglasses is like night and day. I also us them for driving and they are fantastic. I highly recommend these sunglasses to anyone needing first class eye protection. Great Product!

BILL

"I got my new glasses this past weekend. First, let me say again that the single pair of glasses that I got from you last year are the best sunglasses I have ever owned. I can see so clearly, more so than I would expect, along with better contrast and well defined colors. The sun is not too bright on very brightest days. I give them a 10 out of 10. The new bifocal sunglasses are also very good. I like the fact that you lowered on the lenses where the bifocal magnification kicks in. It is perfect. Thanks again for such a great product. I will keep spreading the word on your business whenever I get the chance."

BILL BARTOLUCCI
I have purchased quite a few sunglasses over the years and I can say without a doubt that the "Extreme Glare" prescription sunglasses that I purchased from you are the best sunglasses I have ever owned.Besides providing all the best protection from harmful sun rays and extreme brightness, I can see objects and text better than any other sunglasses that I have tried. Objects that are reflecting bright light or objects that are in shaded areas are much more well defined and are much more clearly seen. Colors seem to be more vivid and well defined. In addition, I can read text from LCD screens which is a big plus. These sunglasses are so good, I now wear them all the time while I am outside much more than my previous sunglasses. Thank you for making this technology available to anyone over the Internet.


ROY MILLS
Hi Bruce, I am writing a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with my latest sunglasses you have made for me. The last 2 sets have been home runs as far as sunglasses are concerned. They are a great fit and very comfortable to wear. The medium rose color is great as it keeps the sunlight dark enough so that my eyes do not tire from wearing them all day when I'm out on the project site. Your suggestion of finding a set of rims that were comfotable for me to wear was right to the mark. Your magic of putting your "Extreme" lenses in them was the answer for me. But now back to the newest pair. Being a surfer type of the mid 1960's, I became enamored with the Wayfarer type surfer shades of the era. When you said you could fit the "Extreme" lenses in them I was thrilled. Well the rest is history now as I am enjoying my "surfer type 60's shades". Thanks again for your great advice for sunglasses that not only protect your eyes but look "Kool" too. This pair of glasses is the "Grand Slam" for me.

ORME JED
Hello Bruce,Now that I have been using my RX sunglasses you made, I thought I should let you know how extremely pleased I am with them. You may recall I ordered the grey tint but they sent you a rose tint, and now I am really very glad they did. I couldn't be happier. When I compare them to my old prescription sunglasses, there is such a huge difference in the clarity & glare reduction. I have been using them in my RC flying and truly believe they are helping me to see my airplanes much more clearly and at greater distances than before. So thanks again and keep up the good work. Kind regards.

BOB HORACEK

"Hi Bruce. Well I have been to the field a dozen times with my new glasses. Bruce they are the best glasses I have ever had, or could ever expect to have. They make the plane just POP when it is in the air. I want to thank you for making me such a great pair of glasses. 

PS. they work great on cloudy days to make the plane stand out."

RON
—I must say that the glasses are truly fantastic having used them for a couple of days at the airfield.Many thanks I honestly didn't expect such a spectacular result.


RAY PAYNE
Bruce,I just wanted you to know that my new glasses arrived today and 1 am extremely pleased with them! Everything we planned during the design/ordering process was just as expected. The BOLLE frames you suggested look great and fit perfectly. They are so good that I am considering using these for my everyday sunglasses and sending you a pair of my old frames to get this prescription in them!Count me as one of your extremely pleased customers!
BILL FAIRWEATHER
Bruce I received my glasses back today, they are great, I can fly that plane right through the sun with no problems and the prescription is perfect. It is a pleasure doing dealing with you.
