What does "polarised" mean?
Polarised lenses fight glare by minimising the passage of undesirable light to the eye. The result is sharper vision, more vivid colour and greater depth perception.
What does "photochromatic" mean?
Photochromatic lenses darken with UV exposure, adjusting to a variety of light conditions.
What are anti-reflective lenses?
Anti-reflective lenses reduce distracting reflections that can bounce off the back of the lens into the eye.
What are the benefits of gradient lenses?
Gradient lenses fade from a darker tint to a lighter tint, allowing for comfortable vision over a wide range of distance and lighting conditions.
Why might I want interchangeable lenses?
Frames that have interchangeable lenses let you swap out lenses for different looks and performances.
What are the benefits of mirrored lenses?
Mirrored lenses have reflective coating that reduces the amount of light passing through to the eye.
How do I find my frame size?
To find your frame size, measure your features according to this guide:
Measured from outermost edges of lenses horizontally.
Approx. 40mm - 62mm
The distance between lenses.
Approx. 14mm - 24mm
Length of the temple piece - also known as the arm piece or earpiece.
Approx. 120mm - 150mm
What difference do lens colours make?
All colours absorb light differently. Lens colours determine which parts of the light spectrum pass through the lens to your eye.
- Gray or "smoked"lenses protect eyes from dangerous ultraviolet radiation without distorting colours. They reduce glare and absorb the same quality of light at any wavelength, which makes them good for driving, prolonged wear and general use.
- Yellow lenses filter out near-UV blue light while allowing a larger percentage of other frequencies through. Since blue light creates glare, these lenses make everything really bright and sharp. Just don't use them for anything that requires accurate colour perception. With yellow lenses, colours are very distorted.
- Brown lenses are good for general use. Like yellow lenses, they filter out a large proportion of blue light, but they offer greater clarity and contrast, and help you maintain optimal vision even in irregular light.
- Green lenses offer the highest contrast and greatest visual acuity of any tint. They also filter some blue light and reduce glare. This filter is recommended for prolonged use in extreme conditions.
- Purple and rose lenses offer the best contrast for object against a green or blue background, making them ideal for water sports.
