I look like Penn Jillette in my Superfocuses. Big head; small glasses. I would say that about 75 percent of the people I know have laughed at me. This includes my wife and three adult daughters. My seven grandchildren have been sweet about the glasses, but obviously confused.
Several friends thought the glasses looked “funky” and “cool.” I’m pretty sure they were just trying to be nice.
It took me several days to go out in public with the Superfocuses. I’ve been wearing them for more than a month now. I am comfortable exposing myself to ridicule and wear them all the time.
I have needed eyeglasses since I was 24. Now am 70. I’ve tried using multiple glasses, progressives, contacts and bifocals. The bifocals worked the best for many years, but I think I’ve developed a protruding spinal disc in my neck from cranking my head back all the time. As you can see, I was a perfect target for your commercials.
Let’s face it; vision-correction is a pain in the ass. The Superfocus is the least of the ass pains. There’s a catchy slogan for you? They are easy to use with a little bit of experience. My vision is, well, super. They are comfortable to wear.
When people ask about them I enjoy explaining the new technology. Eyeglass wearers usually nod, but I haven’t made one convert. Most people–especially geezers–are reluctant to make any kind of change. So, good luck to Superfocus.
I can’t wait until the company comes out with larger lenses so I can look like Elton John instead of Penn Jillette.
