Tinted Polycarbonate Lenses

Colours: Purple, vermillion/rose, brown, grey, yellow, orange & green

Available lens types: Single vision prescription, bifocal, varifocal & non-prescription

Lens information: Polycarbonate is 10 times more impact resistant than the plastic used for normal lenses. That’s why we use it as standard in all our shooting glasses. Polycarbonate is extremely lightweight and and blocks out 100% of UV rays. Our standard tinted polycarbonate lenses don’t offer any polarisation but they will increase contrast by the very nature of the coloured tint. Whilst you may think brown and grey lenses are the best all-round lens colours, in fact, purple and vermillion/rose tints provide particular benefits for vision when shooting. 

Tints: Purple lenses work well in a range of light conditions and are known for their ability to neutralise background colours. They define contours and increase contrast by dulling greens and blues, which allows the shooter to see black, orange, pink and white clays better. Purple lenses are also soothing to the eyes and suitable for wearing for long period of time. 

Vermillion/Rose lenses work well in overcast and brighter light conditions and are good at dulling background colours. The red tint will filter blue light which makes everything look sharper. Vermillion/Rose lenses are fantastic for highlighting orange and pink clays as they darken the sky and fade out the green background. 

Brown & Grey 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 increase contrast and brighten vision in low light and overcast conditions. Yellow lenses work superbly in very low light while orange & Vermillion are perfect overcast/mid light. Orange lenses work well for highlighting orange clays. 

Green is a general purpose tint and is good at preserving colour balance. Green lenses increase contrast whilst dimming bright light and brightening shadows.

Please note: Polycarbonate lenses are much more effective with an anti-glare coating. We would highly recommend checking this option in the extras section on the order panel.

Polarised Lenses

Colours: Brown, grey
Available lens types: Single vision prescription, bifocal, varifocal & non-prescription

Lens information: Polarised lenses increase contrast and remove virtually all horizontal glare. They are the lens of choice for many sports due to their high definition qualities but they are useful for shooters when looking up into the sky.

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.

Photochromic Lenses

Colours: Brown, grey
Available lens types: Single vision prescription, bifocal, varifocal & non-prescription

Lens information: Photochromic lenses have a variable tint and darken and lighten rapidly depending on light conditions. This makes them the perfect choice for many sports. In very low light our photochromic lenses will go virtually clear meaning that they can still offer vital protection whilst maintaining good vision. Our photochromic lenses use Transitions optical technology – as advertised on TV.

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.

Mirror Finish Lenses

Colours: silver, gold, blue
Available lens types: single vision prescription, non-prescription

Lens information: Our mirror finish not only look good but they are polarised which means they have superb contrast and definition, whilst removing virtually all horizontal glare from reflective surfaces. This makes them the lens of choice for many sports and particularly for activities involving water and snow. They offer excellent penetration when looking into water or snow and protect the eyes from the glare produced by sun reflecting off these surfaces.

Tints: Whichever colour you choose to match your frames, all our mirror finish lenses use a grey polarised lens as their base. This offers great contrast and definition whilst maintaining true colour perception. Due to the mirror coating that is applied on top of the lens base, the mirror lenses are darker than a standard grey polarised lenses. This makes them great for mid-high levels of light but not suitable for low levels of light.

Transitions Drivewear (®) Lenses

Prepared to be impressed! 3-in-1 Transitions Drivewear® lenses were originally designed for the road but their revolutionary optical properties make them perfect for a wide range of sports too. They really are the only sunglasses lens you’ll ever need. From bright sunlight and blinding glare, to cloudy overcast conditions, Drivewear® lenses quickly adjust – providing outstanding visual performance – whatever the weather. Suitable for daytime use only. Protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Colours: Variable tint. Olive green to dark brown
Available lens types: Single vision prescription, varifocal & non-prescription

Lens information: At the core of the Transitions Drivewear® are lenses that react to changing levels of light. In low light and overcast conditions (where other lenses would struggle) Transitions Drivewear® are a green/yellow colour to provide high contrast and maximize useful light information reaching the eye. As the light increases, the lenses change to a copper shade or dark reddish-brown colour (depending on the amount of light). Brown is a colour which most people find is the most visually comfortable. It is dark enough to remove excess light and provide good detail recognition. It can also improve depth perception.

In bright sunshine, Transitions Drivewear® lenses are designed to change to a dark reddish-brown colour. This offers superior filtration of excess light and to provide increased protection from bright light. The brown colour of the lens enables excellent colour recognition with a special emphasis on highlighting greens. Because green is the most common color in the natural landscape, these lenses provide a great visual experience in the countryside.

The power of polarisation
What makes Drivewear lenses so special is that they combine Transitions® photochromic technology with NuPolar® polarisation technology for the ultimate visual experience. Typically, efficient glare-reducing polarisation only occurs when the lenses are very dark. Transitions Drivewear® lenses combining amazing light enhancing properties with phenomenal horizontal polarisation – meaning that wearers can experience the visual benefits of polarisation even when the lenses are not extremely dark. This was achieved only by pushing polarised manufacturing technologies to new levels of exceptional performance and light transmittance. Transitions Drivewear® lenses are polarised at all times and in all conditions.

The all-round lens
Transitions Drivewear® are the ultimate combination for both sport and driving. The lenses will adjust fully behind the windscreen of the car unlike other photochromic lenses. Visit our driving pages for more information. They also offer superior visual performance for safety and traffic light recognition, plus they are impact, water and chemical resistant to give you the best peace of mind possible.
