A STRONG LOOK WITH ALL DAY COMFORT. LIFE ON MARS TAKES LIGHTWEIGHT SWISS GRILAMID MATERIAL AND INJECTS IT INTO A RECTANGULAR FRAME WITH SOFT EDGES, CREATING A ROBUST SUNGLASS THAT’S EASY TO WEAR.
Polarised – Glare Elimination
The polarised L.I.T lens uses exclusively Japanese polarisation filters within OTIS’ renowned mineral glass lenses.
The polarised L.I.T lens is finished with polycarbonate seam edging to prevent delamination and provide superior integrity in the world’s most durable scratch-resistant lens.
UV and HEV Protection – Eye Health
L.I.T proprietary lens technology cuts 100% of harmful ultra-violet A and ultra-violet B light as well as providing protection from high energy, or high-frequency visible light to a world-leading 430nm compared to industry standard 400nm.
The UV and HEV technology inherent in OTIS’ L.I.T lens provide superior protection from intraocular melanoma, AMD (age-related macular degeneration) and eye fatigue while maintaining true colour and depth perception.
Mineral Glass is created from natural elements like sand and soda ash. It’s endlessly recyclable and harmless to humans and animals alike. It’s high resistance to scratching and lack of distortion make it the world’s best lens material. It really does have to be Mineral Glass.
Lens 'Base Curve' is a measure of the front curvature of the lens. The higher the number, the greater the curve. 6 base lenses are generally flatter across the front. 8 base lenses have a greater curve for a more 'wrapped' look.
Made with premium quality acetate (originating from renewable resources wood pulp & cotton fibre), the ideal material for making durable eyewear. Its hue is embedded within the product rather than sprayed onto the surface, retaining colour brightness and preventing peeling & fading. OTIS handmade frames have stainless steel wires injected into the temples for adjustability - a task best performed by an Eye Care Professional.
OTIS frames are produced with high quality 3, 5 and 7 barrel hinges. These premium grade Vissottica brand hinges are extremely durable and boast 100% corrosion resistance.
Mineral glass lenses are scratch resistant, optically correct and more sustainable than the plastic alternatives.
Otis frames use high-quality, Italian-designed Visottica hinges to keep things together, use after use after use.
Born on the rugged, surf-rich coast of Western Australia, salt and sunshine is part of Otis' DNA.
