UPDATED: This Is The Eyewear You've Been Looking For. STAR WARS Official Reading Glasses and Sunglasses by lessthanhuman.
Japan's lessthanhuman has designed an official collection of Star Wars eyewear. The collection consists of five different styles of eyeglass frames available as reading or sunglasses officially licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd. to be sold in Japan in the coming months.
The Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, R2D2, Stormtrooper and Boba Fett styles are contemporary, sleek and take color and design cues from the characters after whom each is named.
Fairly subtle in terms of the branding, the colored neoprene printed cases (all of which read "May The Force Be With You" on the interior) are far less subtle. Each pair comes with the following cleaning cloth:

Soon to be sold here.
Futuristic glasses with pixelated frames from Dzmitry Samal of Samal Design were inspired by the 80s, referencing old 8 bit video games such as Tetris. Although computer images and graphics have evolved in recent decades, Samal wanted to exploit the roots of digital graphics and remind us how technology has inspired all that is in use today.
The glasses, of which several different styles are available, are made entirely in France of acetate and have 100% UV protected lens from Christian Dalloz Sunoptics sunglasses or transparent glass. Each pair can be customized with different colors, including the temples and the frame of the lens.
