Available lens types: Single vision prescription, bifocal, varifocal & non-prescription
Lens information: Polarised lenses increase contrast and remove virtually all horizontal glare from reflective surfaces. They are the lens of choice for many sports due to their high definition qualities but they are particularly important for activities involving water. They offer excellent penetration when looking into water and protect the eyes from the glare produced by sun reflecting off the water’s surface.
Tints: Brown & Grey are the most popular tints for most sports glasses and blend well with virtually all frame colours. Brown lenses offer the best vision over a wide range of lighting conditions and really enhance shades of green (i.e. trees, bushes, and grass). Grey lenses are better for high levels of light whilst maintaining true colour perception. Yellow, Orange & Vermillion/Rose increase contrast and brighten vision in low light and overcast conditions. Yellow lenses work superbly at dusk or early dawn. Orange & Vermillion are perfect overcast/mid light. Green is a general purpose tint and is good at preserving colour balance. Green lenses increase contrast whilst dimming bright light and brightening shadows. Purple lenses are often know as background neutralisers as they dull greens and blues to help define contours and increase contrast. They are best suited to sports where identifying a target within a landscape is crucial, however, purple lenses also work well on cloudy or snowy days so are often used for winter sports.
NOTE: Sadly, due to escalating costs and continued supply issues, we will soon no longer be able to offer coloured polarised lenses in Yellow, Orange, Vermillion/Rose and Purple.
