All of our lens types – single vision, multifocal, bifocal – are available with tinting, and most prescription lenses are suitable for tinting at the time of manufacture. Our tinted lenses all include 100% UV blockout.
What are the types of tinting?
Solid tint is a permanent tint available from very light through to very dark, in a range of colours.
Graded tint lightens towards the lower section of the lens. It improves the look of the lens and enables easier reading through your sunglasses.
Polarised tint is a solid tint that provides the best possible glare protection by blocking any reflected light from passing through the lens. It’s great for driving, fishing and snow or water-based activities and is recommended for people who are very glare sensitive. Prescription sunglasses are mostly made with a polarised tint.
Photochromatic tint is a light-responsive material which automatically changes the lens from clear to dark when exposed to UV light. Popular brands of theses include 'Photofusion' or 'Transitions', which are available in grey, brown and a range of other colours. A polarised version of Transitions if available for fishermen or water sport lovers, and 'Drivewear' is specifically designed to reduce road glare.
