What are CliCs?

CliCs are the revolutionary new glasses that use a patented neodymium magnet front connection system.  They are fashionable and unique.  The integrated flexible headband system allows CliC Magnetic Glasses to hang in style around your neck when not in use. Always there when you need them! Also, you can bend over while wearing them and they won't slip or fall off like regular glasses. You will never have to search for your glasses again!


How do they work?

The most innovative feature is the neodymium magnet at the bridge of the nose and the flexible form-fitting head band that wraps around the neck. CliC Magnetic Readers are easier to use and more comfortable than any other reading glasses on the market.


What frames and colours are available?

We offer a variety of readers, tinted readers, sunglasses and goggles...even anti-splash protective eyewear for medical and dental professionals. The frame shape of all CLIC models was chosen to flatter every face shape, and to suit men and women equally.  CLICs come in many models and dozens of colours; for every look, mood or personality. You may even want more than one pair!


What strength of readers should I order?

CLIC Original Readers, Long Readers, Small Readers, Men's Expandable Readers and Sonoma Readers are available in these strengths: +1.00, +1.25, +1.50, +1.75, +2.00, +2.25, +2.50, +2.75, +3.00, +3.25 and +3.50.  CLIC SUN Readers (tinted lenses) are available in these strengths: +1.25, +1.50, +1.75, +2.00, +2.50 and +3.00.  For other models see individual product descriptions. 

Reading lenses start at a strength or power (called diopters) of +1.00 and increase in .25 increments.  Since reading glass lenses are not corrective, your reading glasses strength can be chosen based on your comfort level and the type of activity you will be using them for.  A good rule of thumb is to start with a power of +1.00 or +1.25 if you are just starting to wear reading glasses.  Then the general guideline is at approx. age 43 to 47 a diopter +1.50; at approx. age 48-50 a diopter +2.00, at approx. age 51-55 a diopter +2.50; and at 56 to 60 a diopter +3.00.  This is a guideline only.  For more information please contact your eye care professional for your exact requirements. 

Reading glasses can be used in different ways. You might hold a book to read on your lap, and that would require a certain power. When sewing or using your computer you might need a different strength of lenses. You may want more than one pair and strength of reading glasses depending on how you use them.  Not sure what strength to order?  Please consult your eye care professional for further information.


If I need different strengths in each eye can you help?

If your eyes require two different strengths, we will try to accommodate you.  When placing your order for models such as: CLIC Original Readers, Long Readers, Small Readers, Men's Expandable Readers, simply select your diopter or strength for one eye and then specify in the comments section of your order form the exact strength you would like installed in each eye. There is no additional cost for this service.  This service does not apply to tinted lenses nor to the following models: CliC Executive, Sonoma, Euro, Vintage or Classic Round Readers.


Can I have my prescription put in the frames? Does CliC sell 'frames only' for personalized prescriptions?

Most CliC models were designed to be "prescription ready" so customers can have their specific prescriptions put into the frames.  Simply take them to your own preferred eye care professional for further assistance.  We do not sell CliC Magnetic Eyewear as 'frames only" (without lenses).  For more information please see the specific product description.


How good are the lenses? Do I need a case?

All CliC Magnetic Eyewear produces are crafted with optical quality polycarbonate lenses, which are substantially thinner, lighter and more impact resistant than standard lenses.  Because they hang comfortably around your neck when not in use, they are also less likely to scratch or break. When you do set them down, your CliCs naturally rest on the frame and headband and not on the lenses.  Catch Your Eye offers storage bags in both a full-size and tube lens-saver model. The bags are made of soft micro-fiber and double as a cleaning cloth for your lenses. Please see Accessories-Bags and Lenses for more details.


Do CliCs come in different sizes/what size should I order?

All models of CliC Magnetic Eyewear are adjustable for size at the temples.  The sizes of CliC products do not have a direct correlation to hat size. See below for approx. dimensions.  Do not hesitate to contact us for further questions at info@catchyoureye.ca.

Are the neodymium magnets safe to use if I have an implanted cardio defibrillator or pacemaker?

Generally it would not be recommended. Please consult your physician for information if you have any health concerns.


Can I get replacement lenses for my reading glasses?

Replacement lenses can be purchased for some CliC models. CliC Readers replacement lenses are sold only in pairs and are meant solely to replace scratched lenses or when a change of strength/diopter is needed.  They are not meant to be changed often nor repeatedly and doing so will void your warranty.  Replacement lenses are not available for CliC Executive Readers, CliC Round Classic Readers, CliC Euro Readers, CliC Flex, CliC Vintage or CliC Sonoma Readers. 

Please note:  Due to the precise fit of lenses within the frames and microscopic differences in manufacturing from one batch to another, we cannot guarantee the fit of replacement lenses ordered separately from frames.  For accurate fitting of replacement lenses, it is recommended that frames be sent to us for re-fitting.  Shipping charges will apply.  Replacement lenses are final sale and not eligible for return or exchange.  See Accessories-Bags and Lenses for further details.  


Do CliCs come with a warranty?

All CliC Magnetic Eyewear purchased from Catch Your Eye are warranted to the original purchaser for up to six months from the date of purchase against any defect in materials and workmanship.  Please see our Terms and Conditions for more details or contact info@catchyoureye.ca. 


How should I clean my CliC glasses?

The lenses can be cleaned with soap and water, dried, then polished with the micro-fiber cloth (included free with every pair of CliC’s you order from CatchYourEye.ca).  DO NOT submerge your CliC glasses in water. You can also use lens cleaners on the lenses of the readers.  Our CliC Medical Eyewear can be cleaned with soap and water or isopropyl alcohol to disinfect.
