Types of Frames
There are three kinds of frames that can be used with Envision Glasses:
- Titanium Frame: These are the standard lightweight frames that are shipped with every pair of Envision Glasses. This frame does not have lenses or the possibility to attach lenses. It has a sleek, minimalist design, and the frame itself is made of titanium, which makes it very durable.
- Lux Frames: These stylish designer frames come with elegant prints and clear lenses that can be purchased as an accessory with Envision Glasses. The clear lenses can be replaced by taking them to your preferred optician with custom tinted lenses or polarised sunglasses, in addition to your applicable prescription.
- Smith Optics Frames: These are slightly larger frames and hence can accommodate larger lenses that provide greater coverage of the eye. This frame comes with zero power lenses and can be purchased as an accessory with the Envision Glasses. The zero-power lenses can be replaced by taking them to your preferred optician with custom tinted lenses or polarised sunglasses in addition to your applicable prescription.
When you purchase your Envision Glasses, by default they are already attached to the titanium frame, therefore should you decide to order an additional Lux or Smith Optics frame, you will have both the titanium frame and the Lux or Smith Optics frame.
If they get detached, here is the instruction on you can attach them again. These instructions can also be used for the Lux frame or Smith Optics frame, but, in that case, the right earpiece will have to first be detached in order for the Envision Glasses body to take its place.
Attaching the Frame
Step 1: Take the frame and make sure it is in an unfolded position.
Step 2: Make sure that the body of the Envision Glasses is also in an unfolded position. That means that the front of the body, where the camera and display are located, is folded out.
Step 3: With your left hand, take the frame and, with your right hand, take the body of the Envision Glasses. While holding the body with your right hand, make sure your thumb is on the front part and your index finger below, to prevent the body from folding in.
Step 4: Locate the metallic hinge button with your thumb on the top of the body.
Step 5: With your left hand, make sure to grab the end of the frame where you can feel a circular part. This is the circular piece that will fit on the hinge button of the body.
Step 6: Bring the circular piece of the frame on top of the button on the body. You can do this by keeping your left thumb on the circular part.
Step 7: Once the circular part is on top of the button, you will have to lock the frame by turning it clockwise while pressing on the circular part with your right thumb. This will allow you to rotate the frame to its position.
Step 8: You will hear a soft metallic click when the frame is attached to the body.
Step 9: That’s it! You can start wearing your Envision Glasses, or practice how to detach the frame with the help of the next guide.
Detaching the Frame
You might have the need to detach the frame to replace it with a different one. Here are the steps you need to follow for that. When you get a Lux Frame or Smith Optics frame, you need to follow similar steps to detach the right arm from them as well, because that right arm is what gets replaced by Envision Glasses body
Step 1: Take your Envision Glasses off your face and make sure they stay in a folded-out position. This means that the front of the body, where the camera and display are located, is folded out.
Step 2: Hold the frame with your left hand and the body with your right hand.
Step 3: While holding the body in your right hand, make sure your thumb is on the top part of the body, in the area before it curves to the front. Make sure your index finger is behind the part where the camera and glass plate are located.
Step 4: There is a button on the body around the area where your thumb and index are located. Press this button with your thumb.
Step 5: Now, with your left hand, rotate the frame towards you (or counter-clockwise). This will allow you to detach the frame from the body.
Step 6: To detach the frame, push down with your thumb on the connected piece of the frame and body, then push away with your index finger.
At first, the process of attaching and detaching the frames may seem a little complicated. Once you practice it a few times and get the hang of it, it gets pretty easy!
One of the arms of the Lux or Smith Optics frame can be detached, similar to how you detach the titanium frame from the glasses through the hinge. The instructions above can therefore also be used for the Smith Optics frame, but, in that case, the right earpiece will have to first be detached in order for the Envision Glasses body to take its place (the right earpiece of the designer frame serves as the Envision Glasses body.
