Being a glasses wearer and needing sun protection used to mean either wearing wraparound sunglasses or spending far too much to get prescription lenses added. Fortunately, we can now make prescription sunglasses from any glasses frame in every style. Follow these quick steps and you’re on your way to receiving sunglasses tailored to your prescription, in the shape you love, delivered to your door.
How to Make Prescription Sunglasses
1. CHOOSE YOUR EYEGLASSES FRAMES
A lens high of at least 30mm works best for sunglasses, and provide greater coverage from damaging UV Rays.
2. ENTER YOUR PRESCRIPTION DETAILS
Remember that your eyeglasses prescription is different from your contact lens prescription.
3. SELECT YOUR SUNGLASSES LENSES
Your sunglasses lenses can be chosen for aesthetics and function. Our sunglasses lenses are polarized, meaning that they are created to reduce glare. This is especially helpful when driving, or in conditions with a higher chance of reflections, such as near water or snow.
Polarized Lens Options
A Green-Grey lens colour provides high contrast and visual sharpness that filters and blocks most blue light while maintaining natural hues. This lens is ideal for everyday use and precision sports, such as tennis and baseball.
A grey tint is an all-purpose, natural tint that evenly transmits colour. Excellent for bright conditions, daytime driving, and everyday sports.
Brown absorbs a higher portion of blue light, especially when contrasted against green (grass) or blue (sky) backgrounds. A great option for active wearers who move between bright and low (shadowed) environments, such as golfers.
Polarized Mirrored Lenses
Select prescription polarized sunglasses lenses with a brown or grey tint combined with your choice of four mirrored hues.
