How to order
Firstly, look around our website to find the product that best suits your needs. Check the various sports that are listed and view the many options that are available. Consider how you need your glasses to perform for you.
You may require eye protection for your sport. For example, some fast action sports are best suited by glasses with head bands to keep them in place. So select the best look for you but also consider the function of your sunglasses.
Once you have made your choice, click on the picture. This will take you to the screen where you need to input your prescription details and lens choices.
Carefully input your prescription details. If you are concerned about this, just input your Opticians contact details and we will get the information for you. If you have your details and want to ensure that we receive them correctly, you can choose the option to scan your prescription and send it to us. This will ensure that there are no errors transposing the information. Other options may appear on this screen including the type of lens that you require.
You can select a clear lens prescription option, or with a standard sunglass tint. These options are included in the price shown on the first image. You may wish to upgrade to either polarised lenses or photochromic or add scratch resistant coatings to protect your new sunglasses.
All of our tinted lenses will give complete UV protection. Select polarised lenses for water sports, for driving or for really bright conditions such as snow sports. Polarised lenses eliminate glare by only letting through vertical light – all reflected light is cut out.
As a guide to help you with your colour choices:
Grey is a good colour for general use and provides the most natural colour vision. However, it does not enhance contrast.
Brown provides a warmer appearance to colours and makes greens more vibrant. It also enhances contrast. Good for activities where judging distance is important.
Green provides a smooth tone to colours and filters blue light. Good for sports where objects need to show up against the background.
You may wish to upgrade to photochromic lenses. These are lenses that react to ultra violet light – they go dark in the sun. They used to be known as Reactalite lenses and are now often called Transitions. These lenses are clear indoors and darken in sunny conditions. They do not work as sunglasses for driving as the windscreen absorbs the ultra violet light, but they do make great all round glasses for general use.
Some of our products offer the choice of thinner lenses. The refractive index of the material that the lenses are made of determines the thickness of the lens. The higher the refractive index, the thinner the lens. Unfortunately, it also means the higher the price. So look at your frame choice, modern, thicker sided frames often mean that more expensive, thinner lenses are unnecessary as the edge thickness is hidden. If you are not sure, give us a call.
Ideally, we need to know your pupil distance (P.D.). This is simply the measurement between the centres of your eyes. Some nice Opticians will give it to you, if not, you can simply mark a dot on your own glasses in line with the centre of your pupils – and measure the distance. If you are unable to provide it select 62 on the P.D. scale. This is the average that the industry uses as standard. Again, if you are not sure, please get in touch. We will help to sort it out for you.
