The Zeal Optics Cam sunglasses give “lightweight” a whole new meaning. The plant-based Z-lite injected frame means these sunglasses are truly as light as a feather, weighing in at under an ounce.

Add to that ProFlex rubber grip and a pair of quality prescription lenses and you’ll completely forget you’re wearing sunglasses!
