Popticals to exhibit at Haggin Oaks Expo


(ST. LOUIS, MO) – April 26, 2018 - Popticals, maker of compact performance eyewear, announced today that they’ll be participating in the World’s Largest Demo Day, the 2018 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, scheduled for April 27-29, 2018 at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA.

Popticals will be exhibiting in Booth #126 and showcasing their high-performance NYDEFTM GOLF sunglasses. With industry-leading NYDEFTM GOLF nylon lenses, manufactured for Popticals by Carl Zeiss Vision, Popticals offer the same clarity as glass lenses while remaining 18% lighter than polycarbonate lenses used in most other sunglasses.


To keep their high-performance lenses safe when not in use, Popticals developed an innovative and patented new technology that allows for portable, safe storage. At the heart of their patented design is the FL2 Micro-Rail System®. Built into the frames, the FL2 Micro-Rail System’s® track and stainless steel components allow the lenses to slide in parallel to each other for compact storage. The glasses then fit inside a small, durable case that keeps them safe when not in use. This gives Popticals their unique portability while offering premium sports performance.

Popticals Pro Staffer, Dr. Craig Farnsworth, a Professional Putting Coach and Sports Vision Optometrist, will be in the Popticals Booth signing autographs, giving putting instruction, and answering questions from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Friday, April 27th and Saturday, April 28th. 


Farnsworth, better known as The Putt Doctor, has worked with over on 100 LPGA, Senior PGA and PGA players, including Nick Faldo, Brad Faxon, Annika Sorenstam, Bernhard Langer, Y.E. Yang, Steve Elkington, Juli Inkster and Rory McIlroy. He has been a featured instructor on Academy Live and Viewers Forum on The Golf Channel.

The World’s Largest Demo Days, this year’s event takes place Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29, 2018 from 9 am to 5 pm.

Entrepreneur and Popticals founder David Porter saw a problem: sports sunglasses have no easy and safe way to be carried around when not in use. The cases wrap-around sunglasses come with are too bulky, and without a case, they often end up broken or lost. So David did what he does best and invented a solution: a design that allowed wrap-around sunglasses to compact down to a small size.

Popticals was founded with a spirit for innovation and adventure. They build portable, premium sports sunglasses that provide high-performance eyewear when you need them, and a convenient, safe way to store them when you don’t.
