Innovative, stylish and practical, Catch Pro polarized Prescription fishing sunglasses from Rapid Eyewear are perfect for spectacle wearers searching for the optimum in visual clarity. They bring all the benefits of our non-prescription eyewear, including interchangeable lenses, wrap-around styling and superior eye protection to those with less than perfect eyesight - all for a great price.
For information on buying a prescription-ready version of this product, please see below.
Our prescription sunglasses for fishing are built around a matt-black finished frame that has a prescription Rx clip housed in the back, whilst the tinted, interchangeable lenses sit on the front. This two-part arrangement allows for great versatility and performance, without compromising on the stylish look. The wrap-around frame blocks unwanted wind and light encroaching from the sides and bottom of your vision.
The frames are lightweight and tough, whilst the Rx clip, made from the almost indestructible TR90 material, ensures maximum protection for your eyes from impact. An important feature of Pro Prescription fishing sunglasses is that, unlike other types of Rx eyewear, your eyelashes will not touch the lenses.
The tinted lenses clip onto the top of the frames, allowing them to be flipped up for momentary 'normal' vision when required.
Wrap-around sunglasses offer great benefits when it comes to blocking unwanted light and wind from the sides of your vision, but placing a curved lens in front of your eyes would normally cause distortion. However, all Catch Pro lens sets are de-centred, which means they are calibrated to remove the distorting effect.
Polarised lenses filter horizontal light that bounces off flat surfaces, including the water, to remove glare. This is an essential feature when fishing as it greatly increases your chances of spotting aberrations on or just below the surface.
Rapid Eyewear sunglasses conform to British, European and US standards for sunglasses and protective equipment testing. They offer 100% UVA / UVB (uv400) protection.
To add prescription lenses, choose your preferred option from the drop-down menu at the top of this page and fill in the boxes that appear before proceeding to the checkout. Please read through the information below before you proceed.
Please note that you may not have to enter information in all of the boxes, depending on your individual prescription requirements. By way of example, if you do not suffer from astigmatism, you might not have anything written in the 'CYL' (cylinder) or 'Axis' boxes on your dispensed prescription. In this case, just leave them blank. You only need to enter information in the 'Near Add' boxes if you require bifocal lenses.
SPH (sphere) and CYL (cylinder) readings are always accompanied by a plus or minus sign. It is very important that we know what the sign is. Sometimes if the readings are minus, the sign will be written above the numbers.
Pro Performance Plus sunglasses can be used for any regular prescription where the SPH (Sphere) requirement is less than, or greater than, 4.5. Due to the curvature of the tinted lenses, they will not be suitable for those with very strong prescription requirements that exceed 4.5.
They are also suitable for bifocal, varifocal and prismatic lenses but please note, we cannot add varifocal or prismatic prescriptions ourselves - please buy the sunglasses only and refer the work to your optician.
If you choose to order line bifocals, we will make a segment that stretches up to 8mm in height from the bottom of the lens, for your 'reading' part. If you would like this segment to be smaller or larger, please contact us with your specific requirements.
This is the distance, in millimetres, between the centre of your eye pupils, when measured across the front of your glasses. PD's typically fall in the range of 55 up to 70mm. If you choose to have us make up your prescription sunglasses, it helps if we know your PD but in many cases it isn't essential. Opticians measure PD during an eye test, but they do not usually put the result on a prescription dispensed to their clients. You can ask your optician what your PD is, but they are not legally obliged to tell you, and they are often reluctant as they do not want to encourage you to spend your money elsewhere.
The good news is, you can measure your own PD quite easily. With your regular glasses on, ask someone to hold a ruler up against your glasses and measure off, in millimetres, the distance between the centres of your eye pupils. That's all there is to it.
If you do not know what your PD is and you are having difficulties obtaining or measuring it, you can leave the box blank. Should we need to know an accurate PD we will contact you.
Our turnaround time is 7 - 10 days from the date of order for distance correction, and 10 - 14 days for bifocals.
We will be happy to adjust your prescription for you should this occur. You can order a new Rx insert plus prescription lenses only in the Prescription Sunglasses section of this website.
If you play golf, you may want to consider adding our green mirror Category 3 lens option from the drop-down menu at the top of this page before completing your purchase. We are also pleased to offer a clear, untinted option. The clear lens offers 100% UVA / UVB protection and is ideal for DIY, cycling etc. Please note that neither of these lenses are useful for fishing.
