For prescription wearers looking for a sports style frame there are two main options: optical inserts and (sports style) prescription ready/RX compatible frames.
Optical inserts: models that take optical inserts are usually a less expensive and quicker option and many models sold with optical inserts are interchangeable so you have the benefit of using different lens colours. They are a good option for people that also use contact lenses as you can remove the optical insert when wearing contact lenses. Optical inserts sit closer to the eyes and can restrict peripheral vision so they don’t suit everyone. You can either take the optical insert to your usual optician’s or we can fit the prescription lenses for you in conjunction with our partner optician.
Prescription Ready/RX compatible frames: we have a range of sports frames designed to take prescription lenses. Again, you can either take the frame to your usual optician’s or we can fit the prescription lenses for you in conjunction with our partner optician. With an RX compatible frame you will need to opt for one lens tint/colour. It will usually take longer to make up the prescription lenses (compared to optical inserts) and for most active sports polycarbonate, impact resistant prescription lenses will be required.
