Raised "Asian" Fit v. Standard "European" Fit

If you have high cheekbones relative to your nose bridge, try our Raised Fit frames.

They feature 12-mm nose pads that position the frames higher on your face and away from your cheeks.

No more sliding down your nose or touching your cheeks.

As a happy customer named Dory once said, "Rockets pass the smile test!"

Tiffany wears Raised Fit.

Standard Fit frames, on the other hand, are perfect for you if you have a high nose bridge relative to your cheekbones.

Zenos wears Standard Fit.

Apart from the nose pads, Raised and Standard Fit frames are identical.

Fun fact: many non-Asian customers prefer Raised Fit because they like additional padding around their nose. 

We came up with Raised and Standard Fit because Singaporeans are super diverse, and so are our noses. 

Frame Size

To find your ideal frame size, you can measure the frame width of your current sunglasses and compare it with our three sizes:

  1. Original (143 mm wide)
  2. Tailored (136 mm wide)
  3. Small (132 mm wide)

Please measure.

Doing so ensures you're getting the right size.

We recommend women try Original because it offers a flattering, slightly oversized look.

Based on our sales data, over 95% of female customers prefer Original.

In contrast, around 70% of men like Original, 25% prefer Tailored, 5% need Small.

Pro tip: measure your glasses and refer to this diagram.

Our Sizes: A Brief History

In 2017, we launched the MTO Classic in only one frame size: Original (143 mm wide).

Slightly oversized, it suited men and women in Singapore, most of whom prefer a medium to large fit.

As soon as we expanded overseas to Australia and the U.S., however, we noticed a trend: 90% of returned orders came from white male customers who wanted smaller Rockets.

L to R: Mahogany Tortoise (Original), Hunter Green Clear (Tailored) and Crystal (Small)

Based on this feedback, we created two smaller sizes: Tailored (136 mm wide) and Small (132 mm wide).

If you like the standard eyeglasses frame size found in most Western countries, choose Tailored.

If you need narrow frames, try Small but believe us: it's small.

A customer named Natalie from Australia once emailed us about her Small Rockets with the subject line "too small!!" We believe this statement is accurate for most individuals.

Currently, all our frames are available in Original, while a select number are available in Tailored and Small.

You can see the colours with smaller sizes here.

Rocket Founders Picture

We're Ming and Shing, a brother-and-sister team from Singapore. Between us is our mum, whose knack for losing her sunglasses in extraordinary places inspired us to start The Rocket Eyewear Company.

On her return from the temple of Nagadeepa in Sri Lanka's Jaffna peninsula, she accidentally left her shades in a boat. In Lalibela, Ethiopia, she took them off inside the Church of St. George and never saw them again. While she was riding a chairlift up Corviglia in St. Moritz, Switzerland, they slipped off her lap and disappeared into deep powder snow. The list continues...

Every time she loses a pair, she returns to her favourite P3 shape - a classic, round frame originally designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by 1950s movie stars like Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck and James Dean.

As a gift for Mum, we re-designed her signature P3s with a travel-inspired twist and named them after her initials: MTO. She liked them so much she wanted two. So we made more, and we hope you like them too!

Started by Two Siblings Born 12 Years Apart

Ming Rocket

En Ming Ong

Ming was born in Singapore and studied Economics at Harvard College. He climbs stairs two at a time, grabs Cheetos by the handful and loves ice-cold G&Ts. He came up with the idea for Rocket after "borrowing" a pair of classic sunglasses he found in his mum's car.

Shing Rocket

Ker-Shing Ong

Shing was born in London and studied Fine Arts at Harvard College then Architecture and Landscape at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Alongside her husband, she runs award-winning Singapore-based Lekker Architects. She has four kids: three human, one canine (not pictured).

A 360° degree view of our MTO P3 Classic Hunter Green Clear sunglasses

  1. The MTO offers a classic, understated look for men and women: it is based on the P3, a round frame shape designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by 1950s Hollywood movie stars like Grace Kelly and James Dean.
  2. Two fits (Raised and Standard), three sizes (Original, Tailored and Small) and 40 color combinations ensure a personalized fit for your unique facial features and tastes.
  3. Polarized CR-39 lenses with anti-scratch coating provide 100% UVA/UVB protection, glare elimination and maximum visual clarity.*
  4. Handcrafted premium acetate frames are sturdy, lightweight (only 29 g) and easy to adjust by hand without requiring heat.
  5. Five-barrel stainless-steel hinges reinforce structural integrity, while an engraved ridge detail on the inner temple tips prevents slipping. 

*Polarized lenses can enhance vision when outdoors but are not for everyone. When you wear polarized lenses and look at your phone or car windows, you may see "rainbows." This effect occurs when you see other polarized surfaces through your polarized lenses.

In fact, pilots cannot wear polarized sunglasses because their cockpit and dashboard screens are also polarized—and we wouldn't want our pilots seeing too many rainbows while flying!

If you prefer your Rockets feeling more snug or looser, there are two easy ways you can adjust them for a more personalised fit. In the video below, we show you step-by-step how to adjust your Rocket frames.

If you like them more snug...

Step 1: Bend temple arms inward so that they hug the sides of your head.

Step 2: Bend temple tips downward so that they sit closer to the curve of your ear.

If you like them looser...

Step 1: Bend temple arms outward so that they straighten and don't press against the sides of your head.

Step 2: Bend temple tips upward so that they flatten and don't feel like they're digging into the back of your ears.

If you have any questions, email us at help@rocketeyewear.com. We’d be happy to guide you through how to adjust your Rockets over a video call.

P.S. If you don't feel comfortable adjusting your Rockets yourself, feel free to bring them to us or any optician. We'd be more than happy to adjust them for you.

It may seem counterintuitive to give you reasons to not get Rockets, but we realize that ordering glasses online before trying them can take a leap of faith, and we want to help you make an informed decision.

To that end, here are the three most common reasons a small number of people—about 1 in 50—return their Rockets after trying them.

1. "They're too small (or big)."

Ideally suited to individuals with medium to medium-large heads, our Original frame size (53-20-145; 143 mm wide) offers a slightly oversized look. However, if you want bold statement-making frames, Rockets may be too understated.

On the flip side, some individuals have found Original too big, which is why we released Tailored (49-20-145; 136 mm wide) and Small (47-20-140; 132 mm wide). 

Click here to see a collection of frames available in Tailored and Small. 

2. "The shape doesn't suit me."

We believe that Rockets look great on a wide variety of faces. Our frame is based on the P3, a classic shape originally designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by Hollywood stars of the 1950s. But Rockets aren't for everyone, and you may not like them if you dislike roundish lenses.

3. "They still sit on my cheeks."

Our 12-mm-tall Raised Fit nose pads position the frame higher on your face and away from your cheeks. However, if your cheekbones are as high as your nose bridge, Raised Fit Rockets may not pass your smile test.

If you're still interested in getting some Rockets, please do! After all, with free shipping and a 30-day return policy, you can try us with minimal risk.

Occasionally, an address may be outside DHL or FedEx's delivery network. If this happens, we'll send you an email with alternative shipping options, including free delivery by postal service.

P.S. DHL and FedEx require your phone number, which is why request it during checkout.

 

Can you deliver to P.O. boxes?

Most DHL or FedEx shipments should arrive within 3 business days, whereas postal service can take between 5 to 14 business days.

Do I have to pay duties & taxes on my order?

Depending on where you live, you may have to pay import duties and taxes to your local government customs agency when your order arrives in your country because we do not cover them.

 

Will I get a tracking number?

You'll receive an email with your tracking number as soon as we ship your order.

 

Should I be present to receive my delivery?

We recommend you elect to receive your parcel in person to prevent the risk of loss or theft.

 

Easy 30-Day Returns

How does your 30-day return policy work?

If you're not 100% happy with your Rockets, you can contact us at help@rocketeyewear.com to exchange or return them for a full refund within 30 days of receipt.

However, for returns and exchanges, we hope you will understand that we ask you to assume responsibility for shipping your order back to our office at 4 Shenton Way #28-02, SGX Centre 2, Singapore 068807.

As a small independent company based in Singapore, we currently don't have the economies of scale to cover the cost of international return shipping.

Finally, please make sure that the item(s) you want to return are in original condition.

 

What is your return policy for prescription orders?

Our 30-day return policy still applies to prescription orders, but we will refund only the cost of the frames because the lenses are made to order according to your exact prescription.

 

How do I initiate a return?

Please email us at help@rocketeyewear.com with your order number, and we'll assist you with the return process.

 

How long does it take for my exchange or refund to be processed?

We try to process exchanges and refunds within 24 hours of receiving the returned item.

Love these sunglasses

Saw the advertisement on Instagram. Ordered the Asian Fit original in Classic Charcoal Black and Marble Tortoise. The fit is amazing. I am so very pleased with the fine quality of these sunglasses. Just placed an order for another pair.

Perfect for my face

As an Asian with a wide face, it’s hard to find glasses that don’t accentuate my head and face shape. I came across these on an Instagram ad, and figured why not? Hopefully this isn’t a scam (I’ve been duped by Instagram ads before). The shipping was quick. Just a few days. They look luxurious…could be worth more. They’re wide so my face doesn’t look ridiculous. Also, the bridge is made for Asian noses so they don’t keep sliding down. Highly recommend.

Great Sunglasses, Great Company

I love the Rocket sunglasses that I got, but more than that, the Rocket Eyewear team (shoutout to Ming and team!) provides excellent service and has shown itself to place its customers as a priority. I’m getting a third pair already and I couldn’t be happier

Great Frames !

Super Fast Delivery; Great Fit

I placed my order during lunch hour, and my package arrived at my doorstep the very next morning! I could use it immediately on my way to work! The fit was good for me and it was comfortable. My first time trying out polarised lenses and it needs some getting used to (for me).
