In prehistoric time, Inuit Eskimo’s wore flattened walrus ivory glasses, looking through narrow slits to block harmful reflected rays of the sun. These narrow slits made walking around a bit troublesome with the Inuit bumping into everything from their neighbours Igloo to a stray karaoke machine playing “Gangsters Paradise”. Luckily times have changed and you can protect your eyes the simpler way with a Groupon ticket which will give you up to 80% on a value voucher for non-polarized and polarized Blueeye Eyewear.
Sunglasses fulfil a number of functionalities; from protecting your precious peepers, to making you look stylish and helping not to run people down with your laser eyesight à la Cyclops. The experts at Blueeye Eyewear stock ultra-lightweight and comfortable sunglasses made with the latest frame and lens materials and technologies available. Blueye Eyewear was formed in December 1995 when Dean Bennell, the director and founder, came up with a new eyewear concept for jockeys in Horse Racing. Whilst working as a horse trainer in Sydney, Australia, Dean had the foresight to realise that the goggles jockeys were wearing had not changed in design or materials since the 1950’s. Dean, with the assistance of his brother Marc, began designing goggles. Initially, Blueye concentrated on marketing its product throughout the horse racing industry, but soon realised that the goggles also had potential in other sports. An extensive sunglass range was gradually created, building on the success of the goggles technology.
Blueye Eyewear presently
manufactures and distributes eyewear for motorsports, fishing, surfing, kite
surfing, jet skiing, wake boarding, sailing, wing suit flying, skydiving,

Sunglasses fact: In Hawaii kids use hollowed out coconuts as sunglasses. They slice the coconuts in half and join the two halves together with a stick and some wire for the ear pieces. They then cut holes with a cookie cutter so they can see out of them.
