When we were developing the new range of sunglasses we wanted to enable a single prescription lens as an option, without the need of a clip in as no one likes a lens behind a lens. Although more expensive produces a pair of sunglasses which you can use for sport and in a casual setting.
As a result we believe we have by far the best sports prescription sunglasses for the money, because by working directly with the lens manufacturer we are able to reduce the cost considerably saving at least £100 and we are able to work with prescriptions in excess of -4 and +4 a first in the UK (NB if your prescription is above these limits please contact us first before you purchase) via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 818 2060
Otherwise, upload your prescription here and if your prescription doesnt have a PD (Pupil Distance) then a selfie with a ruler on your forehead will be fine.
Once ordered we will confirm your requirements via email to ensure the perfect combination for your sport such as:
Frame Colour which can be Red, White, Blue or Black or a combination ie Red front white arms.
Mirror Finish Gold, Silver, Red, Blue, Purple, Pink and Green
Standard Grey or Brown
Polarized Grey or Brown
Nupolar infinite Grey (Photochromic Polarized)
XTRActive Grey Brown
NB with tints it is best to go for grey as this is the most natural view, Brown is more suitable for contrast ie sports that involve objects such as golf
So far we have managed to stretch to -8 for a client in the USA
The main advantages over clip-ins are:
- Easy to clean
- Eyelashes do not touch the lens
- Unrestricted vision (no annoying rim when looking to the side)
- Scratch-resistant hard coat as standard
If required we can spread the cost over 4 months also please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions.
Transitions/Photochromic (Change with with amount of sunshine)
We are getting a lot of interest in these and many questions as there is more than one option with Photochromic lens, so it is almost a section on its own.
Firstly we use two of the best brands in the industry Transitions and Nupolar. There are two options with Transitions either their Signature which starts almost clear (7%-70%) or the latest XTRActive (15%-80%) The big advantage with XTRActive is they work in the car. The second is NuPolar infinite which are able to offer Photochromic lenses with the Polarizing effect and are for people who need Polarized, typically Anglers for the glare off the water. NB These start at a 60% shade a medium-strength sunglasses to 90% for extreme light. The videos below should help.
So going forward we recommend the XTRActive for outdoor sports and the signature would be for more standard glasses when at home or in the office they are clear and then dark..
