Prescription Sports Eyewear
Sunwise Sports Prescription Sunglasses
The Optical Factory is the largest stockist of prescription sports eyewear in the country with glasses and sunglasses for sports such as golf, cycling, tennis, football, racket and winter sports.
Sports eyewear are made in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Sport frames are constructed of highly impact-resistant lightweight plastic or polycarbonate, and most come with rubber padding to cushion the frame where it comes in contact with the head or the nose area. Some ranges, such as Bollé have end tips that provide more grip the hotter you get the more you exert yourself.
Lenses in sports eyewear usually are made of polycarbonate. Since polycarbonate is such an impact-resistant lens material, it works well to protect eyes from fast-moving objects. Polycarbonate also has built-in ultraviolet protection — a valuable feature for outdoor sports. There are specific tints for different sports eg the golf tint enhances the differences between the greens, and the ‘marine’ lens is ideal for sailing or fishing, being polarised and enhancing the blues.
Most sport frames can accommodate both prescription and nonprescription lenses.
At The Optical Factory you can have your eyes tested, be advised on Sports Frame suitability and optimum lens and tint choice. Why go anywhere else?
