Squinting in the harsh sunlight, having to swap from glasses to sunglasses and back again constantly when on a beach holiday or not being able to sport the latest eyewear trends like mirrored shades used to be the curse of the bespectacled crowd. At Fashion Eyewear we’re happy to offer you our top glazing services on most luxury eyewear brands. You don’t need to compromise anymore, make a statement in pair of mirrored Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses or go for sports sunglasses with polarised prescription lenses. We can fit almost all brands with high quality lenses, glazed in-house under the supervision of our qualified opticians.
What are the benefits of prescription sunglasses? Firstly, having custom-made lenses fitted with your prescription in the sunglasses of your choice gives your eyes 100% UV protection
and offer a wide choice of styles just like non-prescription ones. But the ultimate advantage is having the freedom of customisation. Do you want wrap around prescription sunglasses with scratch-resistant treatment and anti-glare coating that’ll prevent the rays of the sun reflecting on the pages of the book you’re reading on the beach? Or do you simply prefer a red mirrored coating but the model you’ve chosen comes with different lenses? Time to personalise those shades and show off your style!
We offer a wide range of lenses, ranging from the standard 1.5 lens thickness suitable for low-range prescriptions to lighter and thinner 1.6 and 1.67 lens index. We can match the original lenses in your chosen frames or you can pick from full tint or graduated coloured lenses with the most popular lens colours being brown and grey. You can choose mirrored or polarised lenses and we recommend getting our scratch and smudge resistant, water and dust repellent elite sun coating with back surface anti-glare protection perfect for driving or on the beach.
Prescription sunglasses are not available from fashion retailers, only from opticians because of the expertise needed. Long time exposure to harmful sunlight can cause cataracts so it is extremely important to protect your eyes with sunglasses. If you don’t like wearing contact lenses, prescription sunglasses are a great option for you.
