Prescription Sunglasses

We offer a good choice of sunglasses in stunning styles, many of which can be made to your individual prescription and are produced to the same high standard as our spectacles.

It is extremely important to protect your vision in bright sunlight, not only against glare, but also against the hidden dangers of ultra-violet (UV) rays.

Over exposure to UV light can damage different parts of the eye and the sensitive skin around the eyes. This may lead to cataracts and macula degeneration causing a reduction in vision in later life.

As the prime function of sunglasses is to protect your eyes from exposure to this harmful radiation, we recommend that you choose only good quality sunglasses that block the maximum possible amount of UV rays.

If you already wear spectacles, you can still have quality sunglasses. They can be made to your prescription with single vision, bifocal or varifocal lenses and can also be made thinner for those high optical prescriptions.

We are aware that different lifestyles and sunlight conditions often call for different types of sunglasses. This is why we are happy to advise and recommend you the best style and lens options to suit your lifestyle, ensuring your eyes receive the best possible protection.

For example, polarised lenses are effective in combating glare as well as sunlight, for instance reflections from road surfaces whilst driving and water from when doing water activities. Close fitting wrap around styles offer good protection from wind and light from the sides, making them ideal for sports. Also clip over sun clips are available to use on top of your existing spectacles as this saves you carrying a separate pair of sunglasses around.

Another option are photochromic lenses. These darken on exposure to bright sunlight and can help your eyes adjust to frequent changes in light conditions without the need to constantly having to remove your sunglasses, still offering 100% UV protection.
