Last Saturday, Team Tavel spent an amazing day down on Mass Ave in downtown Indianapolis doing a combination of promoting Rudy Project performance athletic eye wear and supporting the athletes riding in the 2009 Mass Ave Criterium.  The weather was perfect and the attendance for the event was at record levels.  For those that are unaware of the event, it was a bike race on the streets of downtown Indianapolis, going from Mass Ave to Vermont St to East St and north on East to Mass Ave.  These men and women were MOVING!  The Dr. Tavel/Rudy Project tent was at the start/finish line and when the racers went by in a big pack you could feel a big gust of wind following them as they rode by.

The Dr. Tavel Optical Group sponsored this event for two primary reasons.  First, we have been a part of the Indianapolis community for almost 70 years and we love to support the community in which we live.  The Mass Ave Criterium is in its infancy and we want to see this event succeed.  The second reason we sponsored this is because we carry a large variety of Rudy Project sunglasses, which is one of the best athletic sunglasses available in the world.  Rudy Project sunglasses have many options for a variety of sports.  Cyclists love these glasses because they are unbelievably comfortable. You can bend the end of the temples to fit your head and ears, which is important when wearing a bike helmet.  On top of the comfort, Rudy Project sunglasses have the best lens options you can imagine.  First, they have shatter resistant lenses, they have polarized lenses and you can get a photochromic lens option as well.  This is great for those riding on the road because the polarized lens is going to keep the glare from the sun out of your eyes, giving you a very clear view.  The photochromic lens option is going to be critical for those going on long rides, as the lenses will adjust to the amount of light.  On a cloudy day, the lenses aren’t very dark and on a bright and sunny day your lenses are going to adjust accordingly and offer you a great visual experience so you can focus on riding or whatever other activities you are engaged in.

The great part of our Rudy Project brand of sunglasses is that you can get them at any Dr. Tavel location (Indianapolis, Anderson, Bloomington, etc…) AND you can get them with a prescription in the lens.  Dr. Tavel can easily put your Rx in the lenses so you can get ultimate comfort and vision while wearing technically cool eye wear.  That is why we are the best eye doctor in Indianapolis, offering the best eye glasses and lenses, even in the form of sunglasses!
