Gargoyles Dual Lens Toric Curve was the first pair of sunglasses specifically designed for the purpose of refraction. The design was successful in reflecting unobstructed, clear information to your eyes without distorting or altering objects. The wrap-back design of these lenses provides a 210 degree curved line to protect against light, dust and debris.
