Description

pat 325-0 EYEWEAR SYSTEM
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to eyewear, specifically to eyewear having a number of different features including adjustable arms and interchangeable lenses.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Existing eyewear, such as sunglasses have a number of different drawbacks. For example, the arms are typically a single moulded piece which is not easily adjustable.
Furthmore, lenses are typically mounted in a fashion that makes it difficult to change them. Although sunglasses may be suitable for use at the beach, they may not be suitable for all occasions, such as social occasions.
SUMMARY OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
The present invention relates to a system of eyewear having numerous features and advantages as described and illustrated below.
It is an object of the present invention to overcome or mitigate one or more of the drawbacks of existing eyewear.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION
The drawings and text on the following pages explain, by way of example only, one or more aspects of the present invention.

Installing the Optional Optical Adaptor i-dapz Usage and Care Instructions Your f-dapz will provide you with a lifetime of eye protection in all of their configurations if you follow these simple guidelines for care and usage. Please note that it is normal for the removable components such as lenses and side arms to fit tightly when you first receive your i-dapz. If you follow these instructions carefully, you should be able to change the lenses and side arms in a matter of seconds after a few tries. The i-dapz Transolite construction makes them very durable, so don't ~e afraid to handle them and use a little force where necessary to snap the various comt>onents together.
Changing the Lenses Your i-dapz lenses are held tightly in place using the vise-lock located at the nose of the frame. To remove the lenses, hold your f-dapz firmly so that you are looking at the back (or inside) of the glasses as shown in Figure 1. Place your thumb on the vise-lock so that you can feel the small notch that sticks out from the bottom of the nose area.
With a firm action, lever the vise-lock notch down and forward towards the front (or outside) of the glasses as shown in Figure 2. There is no need to completely remove the vise-lock. Simply ensure that it is released from thf~ bottom of the nose area so that the frames can separate slightly.
i_.t9av~c;~: I~~?s '~ia.JF'C~
i~_h,.,nr,,:~ L..~ns ;.? ~.JPi Turn the glasses around so that the front (or outside) of the glasses are facing you as in Figure 3. Now use a little pressure to force the first lens out by pushing it forward (towards you) from the top of the frame. The frame should be just loose enough to allow the lens to come free with a minimum of effort.
Repeat this procedure with the other lens as shown in figure 4.
l.fldtt(ft' ~t'11i,i.~~n.lf~I~
To insert the new lens, hold the glasses as shown in Figure 5 and gently insert the lens by pressing it down and towards the bottom edge of the frame. The lenses have a narrow channel in their edges that is designed to fits snuggly around the ridges on the inside of the i-dapz frame.

Use both hands to push the lens towards the outside of the frame and into the ridge that holds it in place as shown in Figure 6. Handle the glasses with care at this point since the lens has still not been locked securely into position.

Repeat the previous two steps with the other lens. You may find it easier to insert the second lens if you turn the glasses upside-down as shown in Figure 7. Remember to insert the bottom of the lens first. This means that you will be inserting them edge that appears at the top of Figure 7.

~ ht,.jrtcgi~ I.a~ns Oa.JF'C;~
Fit the second lens into place as you did with the first by using both hands to push the lens towards the outside of the frame and into the ridge that holds it in place as shown in Figure 8. Use caution so that you don't dislodge the first lens.
~~a~~~;~ starts ltt_JE'(~
Turn the glasses so that they are up the right way and the front (or outside) is facing you as in Figure 9. Ensure that the lenses are both fitted snuggwy into the frame by gently squeezing the top and bottom of the frame together with one hand.

(~t',~e~C;.~ L~_~ns 1'.IE'C:
With a firm action, use the thumb and forefinger of the other hand to fever the vise-lock down and backward towards the nose of the frame untii it snaps into place as shown in figure 10. Your i-dapz lenses are now held securely for even the most aggressive activities. Remember, that it takes a bit of practice to change the lenses

4~moothly at first, but you should be able to do it in a matter of seconds after a few tries.
Changing the Arms and Headband With Side Shields Push down firmly with your thumb until the side arm snaps out of the locking slot as shown in Figure 12. You may have to wiggle the sidearm slightly to facilitate this with a new pair of I-dapz. Repeat this procedure to remove the other side arm.
To insert another side arm or the headband with side shields, simply reverse the procedure for removing them. Begin by gripping the side arm or the clip at the end of the headband between your thumb and forefinger as shown in Figure 13 Move the piece under the appropriate locking slot. If you are installing the headband, be sure that the side shield is in front of the frame so that it will appear at the front of the glasses.
Important: be sure that you have the correct piece because the right and left arms and headband clips are not interchangeable.
~~EV_~r~:",~ atrr~t~ ~?..ll't..

Push up firmly with your forefinger so that the side arm or headband clip :snaps into the locking slot. This may require a little wiggling with the headband clip to ensure that it is aligned correctly. Repeat this procedure with the other side arm or headk~and clip.
Adjusting the Microslot Arms We suggest that you adjust the Microslot arms while they are attached to the i-dapz frame so that you can try them on and get just the right fit. Begin by holding the base of the arm in one hand and the rubber earpiece in the other as shown in Figure 15.
r~',-ir:.r,n,:,n r,,~r~,~ ~.~r'c.

Use your thumb and forefinger to swing the earpiece down and toward your other hand as shown in Figure 16.
Slide the earpiece backward or forward along the arm to the desired location.
Swing the earpiece up and pinch it securely to the arm using your thumb and forefinger as shown in Figure 18. You should feel it lock into place. Repeat this procedure with the other Microslot arm, try the i-dapz on and adjust as necessary until the glasses fit securely and comfortably behind your ears.

Installing the Sport Visor Hold your i-dapz so that you are looking at the front (or outside) of the glasses as shown in Figure 19. Use your thumb and forefinger to press the sport visor down onto the center of the i-dapz frame.
Press down firmly on the sport visor so that it completely covers the vise-lock on the i-dapz frame as shown in Figure 20.
Use both hands to squeeze the outer edges of the sport visor firmly onto the edges of the i-dapz frame as shown in Figure 21. To remove the sport visor, simply pull it up and away from the frame.
