Rx Sunglasses are becoming an increasingly popular option for spectacle wearers around the world who need them for driving, sports and leisure usage. Rapid Eyewear's standard Rx frame is lightweight, comfortable and highly versatile - plus, importantly, they don't make you look silly when you wear them.
What Are Rx Sunglasses?
The Rx adaptor, or optical insert, is effectively a small plastic spectacle frame that sits behind the tinted lens on your sports sunglasses. This arrangement provides several key advantages:
- Versatility - it allows for interchangeable tinted lens options to be used
- Strength - it doubles the protective layers in front of your eyes for sport
- It is highly cost effective
- It is far cheaper and easier to update your prescription if required
If you've owned Rx eyewear before, you might be aware that a common issue is the wearer's eyelashes touching the inside of the prescription lenses. This is not a problem with the Rapid Eyewear frame, which keeps the insert at the optimum distance from your eyes without compromising on looks or light blockage.
We are pleased to offer a full prescription service at prices way below what you would pay at an opticians. We can make up both single-vision and bifocal options. before committing to your purchase, please ensure you read the product notes carefully as there are some restrictions on eye strengths.
Which Pair Should I choose?
If you want your Rx sunglasses for a specific sporting activity, look to see if the activity is listed in our Products section (see tab on the menu at the top of this page). If it is, go to that section and you'll find a prescription package listed that is tailored for your requirements. Otherwise, choose one of the two pairs below. The difference between the Standard and Plus package is that with the Plus option, you receive an additional, clear lens.
If you're looking for a simple, budget prescription option, try our polarised Overglasses. There are two styles to choose from, for men and women, that fit on top of your existing spectacles. The polycarbonate Overglasses are strong, lightweight and fitted with impact-resistant polarised Category 3 lenses.
THIS MONTH'S FEATURED PAIR
We're building up a nice range of colours for our overglasses range (look out for a new red pair soon - yes, you heard it here first!) and the latest addition are white. Called Frost, they share the features of the black pair shown above and look very stylish indeed.
