It’s an honor to be working with BBC Worldwide and the Top Gear brand. We’ve been able to target the qualities that drivers value most: clarity, quality, and performance, and deliver them in the form of stylish, high-performance sunglasses.
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) March 16, 2016
After being announced late last year, the first-ever line of Top Gear high performance driving glasses is now available for purchase at shop.bbc.com and TGsunglasses.com.
The line includes six styles – The Stig, Turbo, and Sports Car, as well as three additional motoring-inspired models. The glasses incorporate a host of exclusive high-performance lens technologies aimed at improving driving performance, including light-blocking technology originally developed by NASA scientists to protect astronauts’ eyes. The technology protects the driver’s eyesight by blocking 99.9% of harmful UVA and UVB radiation, along with scattered blue light, while allowing vision-enhancing light rays in that allow drivers to clearly discern the road in a wide range of conditions.
The Top Gear sunglasses are being made in partnership with Eagle Eyes Optics, a high-performance optics manufacturer known for its innovative technologies.
Alan Mittelman, CEO and president of Eagle Eyes said “it’s an honor to be working with BBC Worldwide and the Top Gear brand. We’ve been able to target the qualities that drivers value most: clarity, quality, and performance, and deliver them in the form of stylish, high-performance sunglasses.”
Currently, the sunglasses can only be purchased online from shop.bbc.com and TGsunglasses.com, and will soon be available at select retailers across the U.S. and Canada, priced from $84.95-$109.95.

About Eagle Eyes
In the 1980s, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory developed a method of protecting human eyesight from the harmful effects of solar radiation in space, especially ultraviolet and blue-light rays, known to contribute to cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Today, Eagle Eyes utilizes this technology exclusively in their protective, polarized sunglasses, which absorb 99 percent of all photo wavelengths considered hazardous to human eye tissue.
Eagle Eyes offers a range of sunglasses, driving glasses and other specialty optics.
Eagle Eyes Sunglasses are available in the United States and around the world, through a network of qualified distributors.
