San Diego, CA (September 20, 2018) – SportRx is proud to announce the 1 annual SportRx Awards, also known as, The REXYS. The sports optical industry’s first-of-its-kind awards ceremony will showcase 12 categories, each containing four finalists, and ultimately, one winner. Award winners are selected based on sales data, customer reviews, and SportRx optical expertise. Winners are revealed at the SportRx Awards Show on Thursday, September 27, 2018 inside the Encore Hotel’s Chopin Ballroom in Las Vegas, Nevada at 6:30pm local time. SportRx will be rolling out the red carpet for 100+ industry peers, with tuxedos, ballgowns, comedic antics, and an open bar.

The SportRx Awards is an opportunity to recognize sports optical brands for their excellence, as well as inform consumers on the best-available options on the market. “Over the years we’ve worked with thousands of sport frames and lenses across the industry’s top brands. We have customized thousands of prescription sport sunglasses and goggles for our customers,” Dan Bruton, SportRx President describes. “It is time to let the world know who the best-of-the-best are. The REXYS is how we are going to do it!” says Rob Tavakoli, SportRx Vice President.

In 1996, SportRx began making prescription lenses in wrap-around sport frames, spearheading the category of sport prescription eyewear. Today, over 200 years of combined optical expertise work within the walls of SportRx. This collective team of sports optical experts have developed an awards system to recognize eyewear brands for their outstanding product design and innovation, by which they entrust with their customers daily. The REXY will soon become the most sought-after award in sports optical.
