About Us

Learn about the Occles Journey and our passion for designing stylish and effective eyeshades.

Occles are the brainchild of couple, Hugh Robertson and Lynne McLeod. We first had the idea for Occles in 2011 whilst lying on a beach in Greece.

Struggling to rest our eyes in the strong sunlight, we looked around and noticed various methods being employed by our fellow holidaymakers to block out the sun’s glare. The most common seemed to be a towel over the head! We knew at that moment, there had to be a better way.

At Occles, our optical design experts have the skills required to help you with the sunglasses that provide protection for your eyes, filtering out 100% of dangerous UV rays giving you perfect clear vision

A number of years on, following extensive market research, and huge efforts to perfect the design and comfort of the product, Occles are available to purchase.

Our collaboration with the design team at Fearsome Engine and the market research experts at Abertay University in Dundee has taken us through extensive prototyping and informed the final design Occles to deliver its multi-use benefits, for use at home or away.

Occles is a travel product, a product you can use to help you rest and relax, and a product to protect your eyes from strong UV light.

UV protection

As we all know, prolonged exposure to the UV rays from the sun have been linked to eye damage that can even cause temporary vision loss.

It’s our mission to enable you to protect your eyes from the discomfort of UV and strong ambient light, and also reduce eye fatigue.
