[Custom] Michelle Ongpin's 15 Pairs of Rocket Sunglasses for Balesin Boutique (Launch Edition)
1. Polarized CR-39 lenses offer 100% UVA/UVB protection, glare elimination and maximum visual clarity.*
2. Anti-scratch coating prevents lens scratches whilst anti-reflective (blue tint) inner lens coating reduces eye strain.
3. 53-mm-wide lenses give a flattering oversized look.
4. Handcrafted acetate frames are strong, flexible, rich in colour and lightweight (only 29 g).
5. Three-barrel stainless steel hinges provide durability to the structure of the frame.
6. Engraved ridge detail on inner temple tips prevent slipping.
* Polarized lenses are excellent for the outdoors but are not for everyone. When you wear polarized lenses and look at your phone or certain car windows, you may see rainbows. This rainbow effect occurs when you look at other polarized surfaces through your polarized lenses.
In fact, pilots cannot wear polarized sunglasses because their cockpit and dashboard screens are polarized - and we wouldn't want our pilots seeing rainbows while flying!

Buying sunglasses online can feel risky.
But it doesn't have to be.
We want to help you make an informed decision, so here are 3 common reasons some customers (about 1 in 20) return their Rockets:
1. "The shape doesn't suit me."
For our first 6 years, we focused on only one shape: the MTO.
Named after our Mum, it's a classic, round frame based on the P3.
It suits most faces but not all.
So we designed the SPT — a rectangular frame based on the iconic wayfarer.
The SPT, we say with confidence, flatters all face shapes.
Check it out!
2. "It's too big (or small)."
Most customers like our Original (143 mm wide) frame size.
It offers a slightly oversized look for medium to medium-large heads.
If you need smaller frames, try Tailored (136 mm wide) or Small (132 mm wide).
Unsure about your size?
Use a ruler to measure the width of your current favourite glasses or sunglasses.
Pro tip: most customers like their sunglasses a little oversized.
3. "They sit on my cheeks."
If you have high cheekbones relative to your nose bridge, choose Raised "Asian" Fit.
It features 12-mm nose pads that position the frames higher on your face and away from your cheeks.
We review every order, and if we think there may be a better fit or size for you, we will check with you before shipping.
If you have any questions, please email us email@example.com.
We're here to help!
Your Rockets should feel snug.
If they're too loose or too tight, you can adjust them by bending the temple arms, which are thin and malleable.
Don't worry — you're not going to break them.
If they're too loose
Bend the arms inward and tips downward so that they grip the back of your ears.
If they're too tight
Bend the arms outward and tips upward for more space between the frames and your face.
You can see a video on how to adjust your Rockets here.

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.
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.
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 !
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).
