PRESCRIPTION SUNGLASSES LENS OPTIONS
Our prescription sunglasses lenses are glazed to the highest standards by a family-run manufacturing opticians in Cornwall.
We offer sunglasses prescription lenses in Grey (standard), G15 Green and Brown lens colour variations, in two material types:
CR39 - The modern industry standard. UV400+. Plastic lens with good optical clarity properties, available with or without polarisation. You can also have a blue mirror finish applied to the outer coating.
1.67 Index - Known as 'Light and Thin' lenses, this option reduces thickness by approximately a third vs. CR39 lenses, making it ideal for stronger prescriptions. Anti-reflective coating as standard. (even thinner 1.74 Index also available on request). UV400+ and available with or without polarisation.
Unfortunately, we are unable to produce varifocals. However, you can purchase our 'frame only' option and have them glazed with your local optician.
Please contact email@example.com for queries around lens types, options and prescription queries.
