Over 25 Years of Service
Providing eye care professionals with premium quality custom clip-ons since 1992
Hello, my name is David Salk, founder of eClips and an optician with more than 40 years of experience. I own a high end practice in Berkeley, CA , the Focal Point, and created Blue Logic Lenses™, which utilize Melanin clip-ons to provide proper blue light protection for the time of day.
I have always loved optics, and always had a passion for lens design and the science behind it.
I’ve consulted with Zeiss, designed flip up clips for Oliver Peoples, worked with Marcolin, Enchroma and other companies, and was the inventor of the first rimless custom clip (patented), perfecting the use of memory metal for use in rimless clips, and compression mounts to attach clip-on lenses. Besides optics, my other interests are time with my wonderful family and music…I perform with “Rockin’ For New Eyes” – it’s one of the high points, each year.
Although eClips has been around for a while, we NEVER stop our efforts to get better, to expand our technology and offer new products that can improve people’s vision. We’re truly excited about Blue Logic Lenses™ – we believe that clips are the perfect vehicle to provide the correct blue light protection, without the use of highly reflective coatings, or tints that are worn all of the time.
We believe that the optical industry and the public will become acutely aware of the adverse effects of electronic devices on vision and sleep cycles – and eClips will have many affordable options to address these issues.
And of course, we continue to offer our custom made rimless sunglass clip-ons in a variety of designs and lens options. To those who have supported us over the years, our sincere gratitude. For those who haven’t worked with us recently, we hope to have the opportunity to share our enthusiasm for optics, premium quality clips, technology and service.
