Blue Light Filter
Our Blue Light Filter — available for prescription and non-prescription lenses — blocks high-energy blue light emitted from digital screens, reducing light scatter. It'll help your eyes feel more focused and comfortable during a long day of emails and video calls.
Varifocal glasses have multiple prescriptions in one lens, for near and distance vision correction. Gone are the days of switching frames! We source ours from one of the best suppliers in the business.
Upgraded coatings and superior durability — these lenses have got it all in a stunningly slim size. Available for all prescriptions. Required for prescriptions of +/- 6.25 dioptres or higher. Upgrade to our finest lenses yet.
Our anti-reflection coating eliminates reflected glare, with over 99% of visible light passing through the lenses — meaning they're a joy to see through. People looking at you will get a nice view of your eyes, too.
Scratched lenses are no fun, which is why all our lenses have a scratch-resistant coating included. Please still keep them in their case when you're not wearing them though: they're tough, but not indestructible.
All our optical and sunglass lenses contain UV A and UV B filters to block 100% of harmful UV rays, meeting the EU standards of protection. Now, where's the beach?
According to EU standards, sun glare protection is categorised from 0-4, with 0 being the lightest and 4 the darkest. The majority of our standard sunglass lenses are category 3, which provides enough protection for everyday use.
Get rid of glare with our sunglasses with Polarised Lenses. They neutralise and slow down horizontally-travelling light (e.g. reflected from water). That means reduced eye strain, more vibrant colours and a clearer view.
