Our active lifestyle just got much better with the launch of the new Article One Active x Optical collection.

Glasses For the Active Lifestyle

From the same team that brings you AO Active Suns, the Article One Active x Optical collection was created to extend the same ethos and design sense of the sun collection into the prescription optical frame category.

For this performance collection, Article One is using a new frame material called GKM. GKM is a polymer plastic - proprietary to the family-owned factories that handcraft Article One frames.

Designed to be lighter, more flexible and more scratch resistant than traditional cellulose acetate materials - GKM offers a new construction to active lifestyle eyewear.

Performance Prescription Eyewear

Along with a new innovative frame material, Article One has designed and developed new nose pads specific for this collection, which accomplish the same grip as their Active Suns while remaining hidden and discrete on the smaller prescription frames.

The Article One Active x Optical collection also boasts high-quality spring hinges and engraved ridges on the temple tips to assist with grip.

As with all their eyewear designs, Article One Active x Optical prescription eyeglass frames offer a collection that is timelessly styled to transition from fashion to function.
