Lens colours

Our clip on sunglasses and flip up sunglasses are available in a choice of polarised lens colours in many of our most popular sizes.

Each lens colour is designed to optimise your vision in different light conditions throughout the year, and they have specific benefits for different applications such as driving or fishing.

All the lens colours are polarised for added glare protection, and are rated to UV400, providing you with 100% UV protection.

Safety note

We do not advise using ANY of our clip on sunglasses for night driving or when sunlight levels are low. They are intended for driving in daylight only.

This is based on the safety advice from motoring organisations that tinted lenses should not be used for driving at night because any tint, even a light one, will reduce the amount of light reaching the eye, reducing visibility.
