opticwash:
quick look 

Introducing opticwash: the world’s first automated kiosk dedicated to cleaning and sanitizing eyewear, jewelry, and water-resistant smartphones.

Offering the perfect solution to some of the world’s most commonly-used (and germ-infested) items, opticwash uses cutting-edge tech to deliver a fast, affordable, and convenient way to clean and remove bacteria build-up while leaving surfaces scratch free! 

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

Founded in 2010.

100+ kiosks deployed, 500 being finalized for delivery.

In discussions with the Army and Air Force Exchange Services to place kiosks in all 300 military bases in the US.

3-time INPEX gold medal winner, including Best New Product out of 400+ entries. 

cleaning your specs?
clothing NOT optional 

Fingerprint smudges. Oily residues. Makeup. Dust.

As good as our glasses are at helping us see or shade our eyes from the sun, it can often feel like they’re just as good at staying perpetually dirty despite our best efforts.

But are our best efforts truly the best we can do?

We’ve all done it. Our glasses get dirty, we take them off, blow on them a bit, and -- using a microfiber cloth, tissue, or whatever clothing we happen to be wearing -- start rubbing!

The problem?

Your shirt may get rid of that smudge for the time being, but the truth is you’re actually just polishing the oils or dirt on your glasses. Articles of clothing carry dust particles that can be depressed into the glass,  ultimately scratching your lenses while doing absolutely nothing to remedy the underlying issue of removing bacteria build-up on the nose, bridge, or stems of the glasses.

Enter: opticwash

i can see clearly now 

Designed for shopping malls, airports, vision centers, and anywhere the bespectacled masses happen to be (namely, everywhere!) opticwash kiosks are like a self-service car wash for your glasses!

Only unlike a car wash, opticwash is way faster, way more affordable, and way more ultramodern!

The best part? opticwash doesn’t just clean glasses. It also works with all sorts of jewelry and water-resistant cell phones. The results are like night and day!  Unlike using your shirt or micro fiber cloth, opticwash never leaves behind a scratch, and effectively kills all traces of microorganisms. 

promoting a new perspective 

Effective | opticwash uses ultraviolet germicidal irradiation as a disinfection method that uses ultraviolet light to kill 99.9% of pathogens, viruses, and molds.

Green | opticwash is chemical-free, using only pure water (reverse osmosis without chemicals) and low pressure to clean eyewear, jewelry, and water-resistant cell phones.

Flexible | opticwash accepts cash, credit, debit, and even smartphone wallet payments.

Fast | The entire opticwash process takes just under 2 minutes and leaves your glasses, phone, or jewelry looking good as new without ever touching your item!

Portable | opticwash kiosks are compact and can be quickly and easily integrated in high traffic areas with the potential for profitability.
