Barton

The Barton takes its name from our favorite local swimming hole, Barton Springs, where ROKA was born. This versatile, modern square frame has classic aesthetics that can go anywhere, and it's packed with technology that makes it equally suited for a long trail run, mountain bike ride, or a lazy summer afternoon by the water.

Borrowing from our award-winning performance sunglasses, the lifestyle frames of the Barton feature ultra lightweight TR-90 nylon, which are lighter than acetate or polycarbonate, nearly unbreakable in daily use, and impervious to chemicals. The Barton also features our propriety GEKO™ technology, both in the temple grips and in our patented, interchangeable nose pads. GEKO™ is a hydrophilic compound designed to get tackier when wet or sweaty, which helps our glasses stay in place when you're active – working out, hiking, bending down to pick up the groceries, or playing with your pets or kids.

At the end of the day, all of this tech is meticulously engineered to deliver the performance you'd expect from sport glasses without having to look like you are about to step onto a racquetball court.

The Barton is assembled by hand at our own optical lab inside our Austin, Texas, headquarters and is available for direct purchase or Home Tryout™. It's available in a variety of premium lens configurations and can be made in a regular distance prescription, progressives, non-prescription readers, and prescription sunglasses.

The Barton’s TR-90 nylon frames won’t warp, and are significantly lighter, stronger, more durable and chemical resistant than industry-standard materials like acetate and polycarbonate.
Patented Fit and Retention System
WON’T SLIP OFF YOUR FACE.
And forget about those painful pressure points on your nose.
Inspired by the soft but amazingly sticky feet of the Gecko, our patented GEKO™ fit and retention system features a proprietary elastomer for nose and temple pads that's hydrophilic, chemical resistant and supports multi-directional traction with comfort. No matter how sweaty you get and which way you move, bounce or shake, you’ll never have to worry about slippery frames sliding down your nose or falling off your face.
Find Your Fit
Each pair comes with three different nose pad sizes to customize fit for a wide range of nose bridge widths.
