Our sunglasses lenses are available with or without a prescription, in polarized and non-polarized options. Prescription lenses for Single Vision and Progressives are available in Grey, Brown and Green-Grey tints. These lenses will allow you to transform any pair of frames into sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection.
Our polarized lenses
Polarized lenses are the ideal lenses to reduce glare, improve visual comfort and clarity, reduce eye strain, and improve contrast with a truer perception of colour. These lenses absorb 85% Visible Light.
A grey tint is an all-purpose, natural tint that evenly transmits colour. Excellent for bright conditions, daytime driving, and everyday sports.
We also offer a non-polarized Thin Air Sunglasses Lens in Grey
Brown absorbs a higher portion of blue light, especially when contrasted against green (grass) or blue (sky) backgrounds. The preferred choice of active wearers who move between bright and low (shadowed) environments, such as golfers.
These sunglasses lenses combine the functionality of a grey tint on the inside of the lens with a modern mirrored effect on the outside.

Top 10 reasons to upgrade your lenses
Lens type and coatings are completely customizable to your prescription and usage needs. Once you’ve found your perfect glasses frames, follow our step-by-step ordering process to find your optimal lenses.
1. My glasses are too thick and heavy...
Select Ultra Thin Air Single Vision or Progressive Lenses that are up to 45% thinner and lighter than standard lenses.
2. My eyes strain easily using the computer or watching TV...
Select an Anti-Reflective coating that will reduce eyestrain, or for extended use of digital devices consider BlueReflect™ Digital Protection lenses.
3. I spend extended periods each day using digital devices…
The first thing to do is take regular breaks from the screen by following the 20/20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. You can also select our BlueReflect™ or SightRelax lenses that have anti-reflective coating and a specific filter which decreases the level of high-energy visible (HEV) artificial blue light, which may provide you with added comfort.
4. My lenses don't stay clear for very long...
A Scratch Resistant Coating will guard your corrective lenses against scratching, and will extend the life of your lenses by making them more durable.
5. My vision is always a little blurry while driving...
Add an Anti-Reflective coating that will reduce eye strain by eliminating ambient glare from car headlights and provide greater visual acuity.
6. I don't like having to wear contact lenses while wearing sunglasses...
Easily transform Single Vision or Progressive glasses frames into prescription sunglasses. All of our sunglasses lenses include 100% UVA/UVB protection, Anti-Reflective, and Scratch Resistant coatings.
7. It's a hassle having to carry around both eyeglasses and sunglasses...
Transitions ® Lenses quickly adapt between indoor and outdoor settings, while still protecting your eyes from damaging UV light. Please note that as car windshields have UV protection, Transitions® lenses will not adapt in a vehicle.
8. I have a strong prescription...
Upgrading to a thinner lens is not only more cosmetically appealing, but it'll provide better clarity as well. A thinner lens will ensure a reduced edge thickness and minimization of unnecessary curvature on the edges which can otherwise cause distortion in your peripheral view.
9. I experience glare from all forms of lights, including ceiling lights, computer screens, and oncoming headlights...
Select lenses with an anti-reflective coating. Anti-reflective lenses go beyond just looking more aesthetically appealing in flash photography; these lenses also provide better vision.Think of your eye like a camera: it gets better images with more light, and an anti-reflective coating increases the amount of light that enters the eye beause it's not bouncing off or inside the lens.
10. I need glasses for reading, computer use and driving...
Upgrade your lenses to Progressive Lenses to ensure you have clear vision while reading a book (near vision), using a computer (intermediate vision) and driving (distance vision). We also have sunglasses and Transitions ® lenses for Progressive prescriptions.
