Hello everyone! Those who know me are well aware of how much I love Baltimore’s own funk masters, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong! (Check out my article from a few years ago: “Visual Tips for Aspiring Musicians“) They’re currently selling out ~1,000-1,500 capacity venues coast to coast, where it looks like they’re just getting started in terms of really turning people onto their music! They have a beast of a drummer in Alex “Gator” Petropulos! He also couldn’t be a nicer guy! At Professional Vision, we carry Vinylize eyewear, which is hand crafted eyewear made from vinyl records. (We’re currently the only optical in Maryland who carries them.) “Flock” fans know that Alex typically wears glasses when he performs. We were excited about setting up an endorsement for Alex, with Vinylize Eyewear & better lens technology by ZEISS! Here are the full details on Alex’s new eyewear!

FRAME: Alex wears the Vinylize Harris: The new Holly. Thinner and cleaner. Riveted 5 barrel hinges on sculpted temples last forever. This ultra durable frame is prescription ready and comes with a 2 year guarantee. No two Vinylize are ever alike. Handcrafted in Budapest.

LENS TECHNOLOGY: Alex’s lens have the ZEISS DuraVision Platinum. These lenses have a more cosmetically pleasing, blue residual reflex color that reduces reflectance by over 20% compared to conventional green AR coated lenses. A lens surface that is three times tougher than the previous generation of ZEISS AR. No other AR coating offers better scratch protection. ZEISS I.Scription Technology: A more customized Hi-Def lens that tends to be better for colors, contrast, & night vision. ZEISS Single Vision Aspheric 1.67: An extremely thin single vision lens in the range of plastic lenses available from ZEISS. It is extremely light & a very special lens in many ways.
