CVI was founded by a 28 year veteran of the U.S. Navy, Bob Rochford. The journey of CVsTM began one night while on vacation at a friend’s lake house in Saratoga Springs, New York. It was a dark and stormy night and Bob and his wife Andrea had just finished dinner. He grabbed his iPad and was looking for his reading glasses. They were nowhere to be found. Andrea thought he had left them in the car. It was raining and the driveway was muddy. After returning from the messy trek to the car with his glasses, Bob vowed to re-invent them so they would never get lost again. That night, while sleeping, the idea came to him. And so the design of CVs was born.
This began two years of design, 3D CAD drawings, and numerous prototypes. The company was formed in 2012 and is headquartered in Tampa, Florida. There are eight of us as we launch this adventure and what we hope will be the next generation of glasses. We have started a revolution and are passionate about changing the landscape for eyewear. We are Changing EyewearTM with CVs. Please join us on this journey and your input will help guide us as we develop the next generation of CVs to include Sun, Prescription, and Reader CVs!
