In what has become the eyewear industry’s most high-energy and fun-loving award ceremony, the Annual SportRx Awards, or better known as the “REXYS,” returned for the second year of high-fives, belly laughs, and late-night celebration of outstanding design in performance eyewear.
SportRx, the leading provider of high-quality performance prescription eyewear, was proud to host the Second Annual REXY Award event in recognition of outstanding product quality, design, and innovation across 16 different sport optical categories. Within every award category, four nominees competed with just one top winner taking home the coveted REXY. REXY winners are selected based on a combination of sales data, customer reviews, and the expertise of SportRx Opticians.
Strolling down the red carpet at the 2019 REXY Awards were representatives from the eyewear industry’s top brands, clad in formalwear and ready for celebration. “A person’s eyewear is the first thing they put on in the morning and the last thing they take off at night,” says Rob Tavakoli, SportRx Vice President. “It’s high time we celebrate and honor the best brands and frames in the business.”
In 1996, SportRx began making prescription lenses in wrap-around sport frames, spearheading the category of sport prescription eyewear. Today, over 500 years of combined optical expertise work within the walls of SportRx. This collective team of SportRX optical experts developed the REXY awards system to recognize leading eyewear brands for their outstanding product design and innovation, and is quickly becoming the most sought-after award in sports optical.
