Inventor of AtEase glasses, Kenneth Finochiaro, was led to experiment and design glasses to help his son and grandson improve their golf game. As he shared the product with friends Ken received feedback from a golfer suffering with PTSD that told Ken the glasses helped both his golf, and his struggles with anxiety. When he wore the glasses, he gained confidence to do everyday things that he struggled to do otherwise.
A team of researchers was born when Dr. Wes Sime, a PHD and Psychologist, came aboard to refine the glasses. Dr. Sime had done in-depth studies of trauma reduction in first responders. He recommended and did brain scans of patients while using the glasses. The results proved the glasses helped quiet the brain, reduce stress, anxiety and even panic attacks.
AtEase products are now designed to provide therapeutic relief for illnesses that can be treated using visual tools rather than pharmaceutical products. AtEase is accomplishing this using the scientific technology delivered through the highly specialized, patented and FDA approved glasses. The glasses use a precisely manufactured lens with unique color coating and modified visual field. Having our mission to improve the lives of people impacted by chronic conditions and those seeking enhanced performance through a drug-free and non-invasive approach, that calms, soothes and focuses the brain drives us to evolve and deliver the best products and services that we can. To the world, this product looks like the coolest sunglasses of the season. To the wearer, these lenses calm and focus the brain, resulting in improved performance in life, work and play.

This solution is a unique combination of optical relief and focus, which eliminates distraction, calms the brain from noise and activity that inhibits neurological function and performance. AtEase glasses are effective, drug free and low cost.
There are several different products and CTE, ADD and Migraine specific products are in development. We manufacturer the glasses in children’s, women’s and men’s sizes with slip over glasses for those who need to use their specific corrective lenses. There have been thousands of users with thousands of positive responses and the glasses have even been used successfully during dental treatments, diagnostic imaging and dialysis. Children with ADD and ADHD have had positive outcomes and testing is currently being done in a major school district in Minnesota. We will continue to test and develop as fast as possible to find as many ways to provide relief as this invention will allow us to find.
