Singaporeans are super diverse. That's why we created Raised and Standard Fit.

If you have high cheekbones or a low to medium nose bridge, and your glasses often slide down your nose, sit on your cheeks or move when you smile, our Raised Fit frames offer long-lasting comfort. As a happy customer named Dory said, "they pass the smile test!"

Standard Fit frames, on the other hand, are perfect for you if you have a high nose bridge or like your glasses sitting lower on your face.

The key difference lies in the height of the nose pad.

Nose pad

Featuring 12-mm-tall nose pads, Raised Fit elevates the frames off your cheeks and offers you a more secure, comfortable grip around your nose bridge. More smiling - less sliding.

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

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 Rocket.

On her way back 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 goes on...

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 made her signature frames with a travel-inspired twist. She liked them so much she wanted two. So we made more, and we hope you like them too!

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 noticing a beautiful pair of sunglasses in his mum's car and "borrowing" it.

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).

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, slightly 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!

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.

Although it may seem strange that we're giving you reasons to not get Rockets, we realise 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."

Ideally suited to individuals with medium or medium-large faces, Rockets (145 mm wide, 43.5 mm tall) offer a slightly oversized look that stays understated and elegant. However, if you want OVERSIZED frames, Rockets may not be suitable for you.

On the flip side, to a lesser extent, some customers with self-professed "small faces" have found Rockets too big. If you're looking for narrow, smallish frames, you may want to give Rockets a miss.

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: for example, you might not like them if you dislike roundish lenses...

3. "They still sit on my cheeks."

Our 12-mm-tall Raised Fit nose pads elevate 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, we encourage you to give us a go. After all, with free shipping and free returns within 30 days, you can try our frames risk-free!

Love the sunglasses

I just bought my second pair of Rocket sunglasses. The Asian fit fits me perfectly, doesn't slide at all. I love the shape and the colours too. Already eyeing my third pair!

Awesome sunglasses ever!

Chance upon RocketEyeWear on Instagram and bought my first “raised fit” pair instantly. WOW!!! It fits perfectly, so comfortable, it STAYS ON MY NOSE!!!! and it looks stylish too. Didn’t disappoint and I bought my second pair before I went for my holiday.

ASIAN FIT SUNGLASSES

Although I have a pretty high bridge, I'd say most of the sunglasses still touch my cheeks. However, the Asian Fit sunglasses from Rocket Eyewear solves my problem as it properly places the sunglasses on my nose.

Stylish shades with a perfect fit!

Love the Rockets! First pair of sunglasses that didn't slip from my nose the whole time I was driving. So many pretty colour combinations too! Hard to choose for my 2nd pair!
