DAYWOLF PUBLIC DOMAIN LENS SIZING STANDARDS

Mission Statement (August 24, 2018): Daywolf intends to introduce universal public domain standards for lens sizing with the intention that these standards be adopted by the sunglass industry as a whole and lens sizes standardized in all future eyewear.  It is Daywolf's belief that the almost infinite number of lens sizes in the market, all custom fit for only one model of glasses, stifles competition, reduces sales, and results in long term harm to buyers who are uncertain if replacement lenses will be available over time for those model sunglasses the buyers are purchasing.  For this reason, Daywolf has undertaken a study of the median lens sizes for various popular styles of glasses and will be posting public domain recommendations here, including numerous standards for Aviator sunglasses and other styles.  Daywolf believes that if lens sizes are standardized and categorized by style (as other tools like Allen wrenches, shoes, belts, etcetera) that the industry as a whole will benefit and that manufacturers will come under pressure to conform to the standards despite some manufacturers' desire to make their own models functionally obsolete to increase long term sales.  This will contribute to demonopolization of the sunglass industry by alleviating consumer concern that replacement lenses for smaller manufacturers entering the market will become unavailable.  Such standards will ensure replacement lenses are permanently available to any eyewear buyer and drastically increase the availability of  lens colors and options to buyers.  It will also improve the industry by reducing the pressure on manfucturers to simultaneously manufacture lenses, and allow sunglass manufacturers to focus on sunglass or lens quality rather than both together.  Such standards will also make computer-aided sungalss design much easier for all manufacturers as standardized lens blanks will be available for eyewire/orbital CAD incorporation.  Daywolf intends to introduce these CAD files here online for free download into the public domain and encourage use by all.  Daywolf is also seeking sizing recommendations and input from other designers in proposing lens standards.
