Prescription Cycling & Sports Glasses
As a keen cyclist, runner and kitesurfer I know how important the eye protection can be,but what happens when you need a prescription pair generally or when you need to look at your garmin on your bike A lot of sports glasses feature a wrap around effect,this is great for protection but creates problems when trying to incorporate a prescription within this curved lens.Yes it can be done,yes it’s expensive and yes you will still experience distortion out of the edges of the lens.
We have sourced a few different manufacturers that worked around this by supplying a wrap around sunglass with interchangeable lenses ,a dark or mirror tint,a clear lens and a yellow orange lens which gives better vision in low light conditions. But they have a clever insert which enables your prescription lens to clipped in behind it.This can be a distance lens or even a varifocal or bifocal.
We have sourced a UK specialist supplier who is able to manufacture wraparound sunglasses for most prescriptions.
Different calculations are required in the lens to allow for the lenses wrapping around. These lenses are great for sporty people such as golfers, cyclists and cricketers. A polarised and mirrored finish can also be provided.
Polarised sunglasses are great at reducing glare from reflective surfaces, such as water or wet surfaces making them perfect for sporting activities or driving. Normal tinted or graduated sunglasses, while offering UV protection, will still leave you squinting and in some discomfort during these harsh conditions.
Make sure your sunglasses offer 100% UV protection to protect your eyes from harmful UV damage. All our sunglasses offer 100% UV protection as standard.
Sunglasses with photochromic or transition lenses darken on exposure to UV light, making them great for both low and bright light conditions. We can provide prescription lenses in your glasses with a photochromic coating, perfect for both indoor and outdoor use!
