TOMS eyewear spring/summer collection arrives

Peeping Toms


Sometimes the glass is half empty. Sometimes it's half full. Then, there are the foggy Saturday mornings, that you realize your glass was NEVER empty.

Before you stumble out into that head-splitting sunshine, see the light (or avoid it) with TOMS sunglasses.

TOMS Spring/Summer Eyewear Collection just arrived in Hawaii stores. The stylish sunglasses offer not only 100 percent UVA/UVB protection, but for every pair purchased, TOMS will donate either a pair of prescription glasses, sight-saving surgery or medical treatment to someone in need around the world. Already, the company has provided glasses for students struggling in elementary schools and cataract surgery for people everywhere from the U.S. to Guatemala, to Tibet and Uganda.

All these good deeds come in playful packages. The Spring/Summer collection includes '60s-style tortoise Sandela with splashes of turquoise and white on gunmetal earpieces, the olive Rayban-influenced Beachmasters accented with dandelion and burnt orange on the sides and the '50s-inspired polka dot Gigi. You'll also find aviators, cat eye, floral prints and more all priced between $100 and $175.

Online, TOMS even provides the exact measurements of earpieces and frames and face-shape suggestions to ensure the perfect fit. And if your hindsight isn't 20/20, prescription glass styles just launched last month.

So you have multiple ways to take care of your peeps.

Now that's a good way to run a shady business.

Select TOMS sunglasses and prescription glasses collections are available at various local retailers including Fighting Eel, Pineapple County and Nordstrom as well as Honolulu Eye Clinic and Aina Haina Eye Center. See more on toms.com.
