NIKON LENSES

Custom made lenses by Nikon.

Lenses uniquely tailored to fit your visual needs.

With a Nikon Lens, you truly get a custom made experience manufactured for your personal prescription. The information given by your local optician can simply be added at the checkout after you have picked your favourite frames. Nikon then uses this information to create your personalised designer glasses.

To determine how the lenses will be positioned in front of your eyes, individual measurements must be taken. Shape and fitting parameters of your frame are all considered when Nikon use their advanced technology to create your lenses; this significantly improves the performance of the lenses and has an important role in your visual perception.

Everyone lives a different lifestyle; therefore there are different lens types to fit everyone’s purpose. This will be determined by the questions asked by your local optician regarding your activities and preferences. This information will then be passed to Nikon to help create the lens that will be the best fit for you.

More than 12 parameters will be used to calculate your lens design:



These are the 12 design parameters used to calculate your lens. These are then electronically transmitted to Nikon's Optical Design Engine in Japan. High precision digital surfacing tools are then used to manufacture your lenses specially designed to give superior vision performance.



But which Lens suits you, single or varifocal?

INDEX

Which lens thickness is right for you? Generally, your prescription determines whether you have a thick or thin lens, which is also represented as an index number.

As a general rule; the standard 1.5 is usually good for a fully rimmed frame and low prescription, although if you have a higher prescription or a rimless frame we recommend purchasing a thinner frame from 1.6.

TRANSITIONS®

Choose adaptive lenses to see life in the best light. Adaptive lenses are better known as Transitions, these are recommended for customers who are after the most responsive lenses that adjust from clear indoors to dark outdoors instantly. Transitions (also known as light-sensitive or reactolite) use photochromic technology to optimise your experience and reduce glare and eyestrain.

 

TRANSITIONS® XTRACTIVE

This version has been designed for even better protection while driving. More suited for you if you spend a lot of time in the car. The transition lens will darken behind the windscreen of the car instantly to protect the eyes from the sunlight.



POLARISED

If you are buying prescription sunglasses, polarised lenses are recommended. Polarised filters help eliminate unwanted reflections combined with 85% intensity, UV400 filter and AR Coating, which provide a safer driving experience.

We have a range of tints available for you to add from grey, blue to pink.
