NYS Collection offers the latest in today’s eyewear without the high price tag typically associated with premium sunglasses. Founded in 1996 by two young entrepreneurs, Sal Babbino and Marc Behar, the company started with one retail location at the World Trade Center in New York City. Today, NYS Collection sunglasses are sold in more than 10,000 retail locations worldwide. In the last decade, the company has established itself as the leading eyewear provider for the specialty retail industry. That position as market leader has further propelled the company’s expansion within traditional retail outlets, with sales increasing at a rate of 30% to 50% annually. Rising sales, market leadership, and a proven record of success has established NYS Collection as a major player in the eyewear industry. We stand by the quality of our workmanship and offer a lifetime guarantee on all our sunglasses.
Fashionable, functional and affordable. NYS Collection eyewear is made to exacting standards and our polarized glasses reduce glare better than most brands on the market today. Our glasses meet or exceed the industry standards in filtering out the amount of ultraviolet (UV) rays and HEV rays that may pass through sunglass lenses. In fact, NYS Collection sunglasses are designed to filter out close to 100% of damaging and vision-distorting components of sunlight for optimum clarity and safety. In addition, our sunglasses utilize optically correct lenses, which minimize the impact of harsh glare while reducing or eliminating the eyestrain associated with it.
