How Jim & Zachary Started Boca Blu
Boca Blu was founded by Jim, a thirty year veteran and household name in the premium eyewear design business, and Zachary, a medical devises product developer for FDA and CE regulated products.
Both Jim and Zachary had struggled with blue light from electronic screens for years. It effected their focus, their creativity, their mood and even their sleep. They had both independently tried numerous methods to combat the problem; orange tinted glasses; yellow laptop screen filters; playing around with colour balance settings; but all to no avail.
Their two paths crossed in early 2016 at a friend’s house party. It didn’t take them long to get onto the topic of blue light, and after a surf the following morning, the two decided to set up a business together. The mission: To help people be more productive with their screen time. To create premium eyewear that blocks out more blue light than any other product on the market by using the most advanced lens technology available (both in terms of materials, coatings and tooling).
The company released it’s first set of frames in 2017.
