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 nose pads with 12 mm of padding, 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, lightweight (only 29 g), rich in colour and easy to adjust without requiring heat.

5. Five-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 prefer your Rockets feeling more snug or looser, there are two easy ways you can adjust them for a more personalised fit. In the video below, we show you step-by-step how to adjust your Rocket frames.

If you like them more snug...

Step 1: Bend temple arms inward so that they hug the sides of your head.

Step 2: Bend temple tips downward so that they sit closer to the curve of your ear.

If you like them looser...

Step 1: Bend temple arms outward so that they straighten and don't press against the sides of your head.

Step 2: Bend temple tips upward so that they flatten and don't feel like they're digging into the back of your ears.

If you have any questions, email us at help@rocketeyewear.com. We’d be happy to guide you through how to adjust your Rockets over a video call.

P.S. If you don't feel comfortable adjusting your Rockets yourself, feel free to bring them to us or any optician. We'd be more than happy to adjust them for you.

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!

Within Singapore, we offer Free Standard Shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

We cover 100% of the cost of shipping to and from your address, so you can try Rocket sunglasses risk-free!

A few weeks ago, I chanced upon Rocket Sunglasses, while browsing at the National Gallery’s museum shop. I bought the raised matte black’s. The sunglasses are well made, fit well and are super, super comfortable 👍. They are so comfortable that I have stopped wearing my other sunglasses 😀.

I received my pair a few days ago, I am very happy with the Asian fit as the glasses doesn't rest on cheek makes very comfortable to wear it for long hours. It really help reduces the bright and glare of the sun.
