(Relaxnews) – Getting bored of your glasses no longer needs to be a problem, as a ‘build-your-own’ eyewear range allowing wearers to create a host of style combinations was launched this week.

Designed by Nuke Optics, ‘Venom’ is being billed as the first-ever fully-customizable modular eyewear range.

The collection is made up of various modular components including lenses, frames and ‘side arms’ (temples) which are all fully interchangeable.

Featuring a screwless hinge, the glasses allow wearers to mix variations of colors, styles, sizes and shapes by clipping the components together to get the exact look they require.

The concept means that if one component is lost or broken, customers do not have to buy a whole new pair of glasses, but can simply opt to replace the missing part.

It also means that staying on-trend could be easier, as the glasses can be updated as new styles are released.

“Venom is the world’s first fully customizable single modular system designed for eyewear that has the possibility to work on so many different levels and change the way the eyewear industry has operated for decades,” said M Samy, Nuke Optics Founder.

Customizable glasses are becoming something of a an eyewear trend: German company EBM Design broke ground with its ‘Switch-It‘ range of frameless lenses, and start-up company Frameri came on to the scene this year with a collection featuring snap-in lenses.

The project is currently in the final stages of crowdfunding on Indiegogo and the glasses can be ordered at Nuke Optics. Initial orders are expected to be delivered in February 2014.
