'Barz Optics offers an extensive range of protective and stylish eyewear. - Sydney International Boat Show'    Rosalie Taylor

At the recent Sydney International Boat Show, Barz Optics was selling lenses that are not only stylish, but protective and affordable.

Owner Kevin Barr claimed many successful sales at the event. 'We have been doing really well, better than last year. Sales have increased about 20%,' he said.

BarzOptics manufactures an extensive range of sunglasses specifically developed for the boating lifestyle. Styles cater to men, women and children.

This year’s show serves as the launching pad for several new varieties of the all-important eye protection. The latest designs boast several unique features that make them some of Barz Optics best releases to date.

According to Kevin, the product that has been the most in demand has been the ‘San Juan’ range.

The specialised sunglasses feature the lightweight design that is common among the company’s products, but also boast a buoyancy of 0.95gm/ml, meaning this fashionable eyewear will float even in the most turbulent water.

The glasses are impregnated with melanin to ensure maximum protection, but perhaps the most intriguing feature is their ability to adapt to varying light conditions. The lenses adjust 40% darker according the level of sunlight.

The product has been well received by international markets, and the company has been supplying the glasses to America for the last two years as well as supplying to various European distributors, to rave reviews around the world.
