I’ve just completed the National Hill Climb Championships with my Optilabs Rapides. The ride was tough but what I love about my glasses is that you don’t even know your wearing them! That annoying tendency of glasses to slide down your nose is eliminated with the rubberised nose piece, which hold the glasses firmly even when your dripping with sweat! The arms are just right for my head without being tight and slip underneath my helmet straps without any problems. The biggest advantage and my main reason for buying my Optilabs in the first place is the fact that your lenses are manufactured with your eye prescription. Over the years I have tried many big branded glasses with prescription inserts which I don’t get on with. They maybe fine for some people, but having the option of having a complete set of personalised glasses is just amazing. Great service, quick turn around and quality glasses. Thank you!
Last year I placed an order with you for some prescription sunglasses for various sports wear. I mentioned that I particularly wished to use them for cycling, sailing and skiing. Now that I have had the opportunity to use the glasses for all these sports I wanted to tell you how pleased I am with their performance. They are an excellent purchase. Well done Optilabs!
Just a quick email to say received glasses. Two rides out in the wild and all is good. Fantastic product and service…. no more “watery” eyes. The prescription is bang on too. Thank you
Just a note to let you know that I have just received my new glasses and am over the moon with them. The service and help from all at your company has been fantastic. A pleasure to deal with and a refreshing change from the general standard of companies these days. Once again thanks for everything.
I went with the Blackbird and received them today. I have had lots of glasses over the years (I am over 60). I’ve sea-kayaked, sailed, hiked and fished for the past forty five years and I have got to say the glasses I have received today are the best in both quality and cost. Too bad I didn’t know about you guys before.
I’m very pleased with my Sabre glasses. The optics are crystal clear the fit is good also. Thank you for supplying a great product.
Thank you for sending through my new prescription sunglasses yesterday. I wore them for the first time while cycling this morning and they were excellent. I had no difficulty focusing on a variety of distances, including my Garmin computer. They fit really well and are light; l forgot l had them on. Thanks very much for your quality of service and speed of delivery.
Thanks for the Horizon sunglasses. They’re well designed for cycling, not sitting too low on the face. The key thing that made me choose your sunglasses over other options such as Adidas is that the prescription insert lens covers nearly the whole width of the front shield. Other options have very small lenses, so when you look left or right, your vision is blocked by the edge of the prescription insert. Your design gives a wide field of view, which is very important for road and trail safety.
The multiple options of lenses are great, and were a deciding factor over buying a set of prescription sunglasses where the prescription lenses are fixed.
Just a note to say, I’m really glad I chose your Orbit sunglasses with polarised lenses for sailing. They keep out the glare, they keep a lot of the wind out of my eyes, they don’t steam up when my eyes water, I can see when I go down below (indoors for you landlubbers). I have a strange prescription for which I was adviced well for choice of frame – there is hardly any distortion glancing sideways. The glare from the side is also stopped by the wraparound design. What a success! Thank you.
I love my Flow cycling glasses, they cycled over 200 miles with me whilst in Corfu and were really comfortable to wear. Thank you Optilabs!
Dear Optilabs, the glasses are superb. I hope to have a lot of fun with them fishing Cuba. My old ones are “worn out”!

I bought my first pair of Optilabs prescription cycling sunglasses about 12 years ago and they have served me brilliantly. So I reckoned I deserved a new pair. I ordered the wrong pair first of all (entirely my own fault as I didn’t look at the website properly!). But Margaret was really great and offered to replace them without a moment’s hesitation. The new ones (Spark) arrived promptly and I love them. The prescription is spot on and the photochromic tint works a treat. Thanks, from a very happy customer.
