You wearing Rising Sun Glasses™, Golden brown texture, like the summer sun…

Carline just sent us a picture of her wearing Rising Sun Glasses mod.001 Color Therapy with hand dipped golden lenses from WearLite.ch Switzerland.

We are stunned by her beauty and we all are happy about one blind person in need being able to see the sunlight again due to Carline.  With each pair of RisingSunGlasses.com sold, a blind person in need receives the medical attention needed to prevent blindness, or a sight saving surgery.

Thanks Carline! What a HERO she is!

Abenteuer und Reisen (Germany)

Adventure and Travel Magazine, in Germany, has honored us in including the Rising Sun Glasses Model 2 in their current issue (September 2013).


Visual-aid The buyer of a Rising Sun Sunglasses helps blind people in developing countries (this year in focus: Mozambique). The price includes a contribution to the funding of the organization LIGHT FOR THE WORLD, which covers the costs for the operation of a blind man.


And, as a quick reminder, we are offering 60 days money back guarantee *, and a boat-load of good karma, with each pair of glasses or sunglasses we sell.



If you’re asking: What is Color Therapy?  here’s the answer: Color Therapy is a collaboration between Rising Sun Glasses and Wear Lite color lenses, and we couldn’t be any prouder!

The new products are the answer to all the dreary mornings, all the overcast and dark days of autumn and winter, and all the days in between, for when you need a bit of extra color to spark up your day, and your imagination.

With the new collaboration, we will (very soon) be able to offer you optical lenses (prescription lenses) to fit your brand new Rising Sun Glasses frames. Imagine the possibilities: You are helping a blind person in the Third World get the eye care/ or surgery  that they need, and you receive good karma points, AND a hand-made in Italy frame, with green, purple, yellow, or turquoise lenses.

The posh-est spas and the most up-to-date psychotherapists & holistic healers, are now offering color therapy. For 1 hour, if you’re lucky, you get to experience the healing properties of light. What we are offering you is the same therapy, but this time, you get to experience the benefits EVERY DAY. Combine this healing power over you, with the good karma points you’ve just racked up for helping a person in the Third World get the eye surgery they so desperately needed, and I’d say you’re well on your way to enlightenment. Good job!

We’re excited to bring you these options, and we’re updating our SHOP right now, so that you can enjoy the rainbow that much sooner.

The prediction:  a wavefront of good feelings, followed by a rainbow of happy colors covering your entire world 🙂

wieder-sehen_640_334We’re a team of concerned citizens of the planet, trying to bring light into the life of preventably blind people of the world. Social Entrepreneurship is not just a good thing, It’s a necessary thing.

JFK was right when he said “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country” that matters. In this case, we’re extrapolating a bit, and including the entire planet, as we are all of this planet, and the pain and suffering of our fellow man affects us all.

In this case, the plight of those going blind for lack of resources is what we’re trying to amend.

Understanding the lack of sensorial input was the starting point for this endeavor. The idea came to us, when the founder lost his hearing temporarily. It is nothing short of scary to loose your hearing functions. But in that state, Sebastian, our founder, started thinking of all those that don’t have access to the medical facilities or the resources, to take care of a simple surgery, to prevent the loss of sense for the rest of their lives.

Loosing his hearing, even temporarily, sparked this drive to prevent that from happening to others. Loosing your sight can lead to, especially in the developing countries, being treated as a pariah, being pushed to the fringes of society, which can lead to not being able to provide for yourself or for your family, not having a place to live, not leading a happy live, contributing. All because of lack of resources, and because of a where they are born. This should never be the case!

If a simple cataract surgery in the West, “civilized world” is affordable and sometimes included in your health care plan, getting access to the same cataract surgery is cost prohibitive and sometimes very difficult to get to, distance wise, in the Third World. So, a human being born in a developing country is faced with the immensity of loosing her/his sight because of a very small amount of money, by western standards. How can this be? How can we stand by and let this happen?

Well, WE couldn’t! That’s why Rising Sun Glasses!

We could not let preventable socio-economic factors decide who’s going blind and who’s not. Factors like distance to the nearest qualified hospital or ophthalmologist, and the costs of the surgery, are factors that we can mediate. With every pair of RSG sunglasses sold, we are providing for the medical examinations, the eye surgery, or the treatment of preventable blindness, for one person in the developing world. So the more glasses we sell and the more people we reach with our message, the more people we get to save. Actually, you, the buyer of our glasses, gets to save the sight of those people, you get to be the HERO

header_beira_02_640_218And now going back to JFK’s speech, it is about what you can do for your country, in this case your world. If buying a pair of sunglasses can help another person keep their sight, keep their integrity as a human being, it is our / your duty to help.

If, in the process, you get a pair of stylish and good for you, and your karma, glasses, that’s even better. In the development of our glasses, we took the highest care in doing it with the environment in mind, by using renewable and recyclable resources, and in sourcing the production to a local manufacturer, therefore reducing the environmental impact of transport. We’re trying to help, and we’re trying to help those in need, and the planet.

We thought of the quality of the lenses too, and we decided that we will do our best in preventing blindness at home too, by incorporating high quality 100% UV protection, even in our HERO model (clear lens), therefore protecting your eye and your vision.

In short, this is who we are: concerned citizens of the world, trying to prevent blindness, and bring beauty to this world at the same time.

About who YOU are? You are a person that is trying to do her/his part in reducing suffering in this world, trying to make this world a better place, and looking good while doing it.

We cannot wait to meet you and hear your stories, and see you looking dashing in your new pair of Rising Sun Glasses, and helping those in need see the light again, because of your involvement.

Hit us up at rsg email.

Cheers and thanks!

Alle Jahre wieder stehen wir vor der einen grossen Frage: Was schenke ich zu Weihnachten? Wie diese jährliche Aufgabe ohne grosse Anstrengungen und mit Erfolg zu bewältigen ist, sagt uns Buchautorin Tatjana Strobel.

Menschenkenntnis-Expertin und Bestseller-Autorin Tatjana Strobel studiert intensiv Körpersprache und Gesichtszüge und wertet die Ergebnisse in ihren Büchern aus. Die Verhaltensfach frau hat auch wert· volle Tipps zum Thema richtig Schenken parat.

Tatjana Strobel, wie finde ich heraus, welches das richtige Geschenk ist?
Das ist gar nicht schwierig! Achten Sie unter dem Jahr auf Äusserungen und Wünsche von Freunden und Familie. Damit Sie nichts vergessen, führen Sie ein «Wünschebuch», in dem Sie jeden Wunsch vermerken. Übrigens macht Schenken den Schenkenden glücklich!

Wie sehe ich, ob der Beschenkte wirklich Freude hat?
Nach dem Auspacken sollte Überraschung im Gesicht zu sehen sein. Aufgerissene Augen, vergrösserte Pupillen, oder ein ehrfürchtiges, staunendes «Oh» oder «Wow» entweicht seinen Lippen. Auch ein Lachen im Gesicht und Arme und Schultern sind hochgezogen, zeigen Freude. Und wenn das Geschenk gefällt, beschäftigt sich der Beschenkte ausführlich damit, zieht es an, blättert darin und zeigt es den anderen Gästen.

Gibt es Regeln, was ich meiner Chefin/meinem Chef schenken darf?
Ja! Persönliche und intime Geschenke wie Parfüm, Deo oder Wäsche sind tabu. Am besten und unverfänglichsten schenkt man im Team. Dabei kann es sich um ein edles Schreibgerät oder ein Visitenkartenetui handeln. Oder Sie schenken etas für die ganze Familie, wie zum Beispiel Karten für das Weihnachtskabarett oder einen Gutschein für ein Wellness-Bad-Eintritt.

Was schenke ich einem Mann, der schon alles hat?
Das wertvollste Gut auf Erden ist Zeit. Schenken Sie ihm Ihre Zeit: Zeit sich zu verwöhnen, Zeit für Genuss, oder einfach Zeit für Gemeinsamkeit.

2. Gutes schenken, Die coolen Rising-Sun-Giasses retten das Augenlicht von Menschen in der Dritten Welt. Zu bestellen ist das Stück für etwa 189 Euro unter www.risingsunglasses.com .
