Sunglasses Lenses

Our sunglasses lenses have 100% UV protection, 80% light absorbtion (20% LTF) and come in three colour variations as shown.

  • Grey / Black, (Model wearing this colour) is by far the most popular tint available and doesn't interfere with any colour balance, so excellent for driving.
  • Brown, warm colour good for outdoor sports and driving as it highlights red and green colours.
  • Green / Grey, the green lens ensures superior clarity of vision and remarkable colour contrast, preserves colours most colours but filters out blue light to give the nearest natural vision.
