After spending several hours in the ocean on a bright sunny day, Lee Batey felt his eyes itching. It was only when he came home and took a quick dip in a chlorine pool that the itch upgraded to a burn. The diagnosis? Sunburnt eyes, from the intense glare reflecting off the water.
Astounded, Lee started thinking over how he could stop this from happening again. It was then that he had the first inklings of an idea that would eventually become Sealz; sunglasses that could transition into goggles, protecting your eyes from glare in and out of water.
