Look Your Best with Randolph Eyewear at Paul Simon

Randolph

Whether you’re piloting an F18 fighter jet or driving a car, you need the best lenses available to protect your eyes and enhance your vision. All of Randolph’s lenses absorb 98-100% of harmful ultraviolet rays and allow a range of 12-18% of visible light to pass through; the ideal comfort level for most wearers. Their mineral glass lenses are exceptionally scratch-resistant, and will provide you with absolute distortion-free clarity.

Randolph Engineering has supplied sunglasses to the US Military and Air Forces world-wide since 1982. Famed for their extreme durability and classic American styles, these sunglasses are meticulously handcrafted using only the finest materials. The biggest advantages to wearing Randolph sunglasses are the enhanced definition and optical clarity that gives you the level of protection you need while not compromising the quality of your vision. Randolph Engineering products are famed for their quality and durability. Each pair of their sunglasses goes through more than 200 production stages– mostly by hand. They even make their own solder flux. As a result, their frames provide unequaled strength and solder joint integrity. They do not compromise quality even when selecting something as trivial as a lens screw. Their nose pads are made of soft silicone to prevent the frames from slipping, even during heavy perspiration. While fashion may fade in and out of the marketplace, the quality found in Randolph Engineering products will never go out of style. They feel so strongly about the quality of their products that they will repair or replace any broken solder joint for the lifetime of the frame (assuming normal use).

History
Randolph Engineering, Incorporated was founded in 1972 by Polish immigrants, Jan Waszkiewicz and Stanley Zaleski. Through determination and a tireless work ethic Randolph Engineering became one of the leading optical tool & die companies in the country. In the late 1970’s Randolph Engineering started manufacturing Mil-Spec Aviator sunglasses for the United States Air Force as a subcontractor producing in excess of 200,000 sunglasses annually. Randolph became the US government prime contractor in 1982. By the late 1980’s Randolph had expanded into the commercial sunglass market after civilians learned about the quality of its sunglasses and prescription frames through military channels. Today Randolph remains an iconic brand accelerated by a growing demand for genuine, well-made products with a strong American heritage.
