ALTIUS AVIATOR GOLF SUNGLASSES
SPECIAL OFFER - For a limited time only, we are delighted to offer these sunglasses at the same price as our non-polarised Altius range.
Rapid Eyewear's British-designed aviators combine strength, style, comfort and cutting edge lens technology to provide you with the ultimate sunglasses for sports and leisure use. The green polarised lens has the optimum tint colour for exceptional contrast and depth perception when playing 'green field' sports, including golf. If required, you can also order a full prescription service for this pair by selecting either single-vision or bifocals from the other drop-down menu at the top of this page.
Altius have a build quality and feature list that makes them outstanding value for money when compared to alternative high-end brands.
Manufactured from a tough nickel-silver alloy, the top quality Altius frame is extremely robust, with solid hinges that do not exhibit the slop associated with cheaper sunglasses. Adjustable nose pads and rubber side arm extensions enhance comfort levels. Finished in an attractive silver colour.
The Lenses Utilising Rapid Eyewear's Multi Layer technology, Altius Category 3 lenses are packed with features. Made from impact resistant polycarbonate, the lenses are finished with a flash mirror coating that makes them look very attractive.
Glare is caused by the sun's rays bouncing off horizontal surfaces, including the road, another car's windscreen etc. Polarised lenses remove glare by filtering out this horizontal light. Polarised lenses can be manufactured in one of two ways - cheaper sunglasses have filters stuck on to the front of the lens, and this does work to a large extent but for optimum performance the filters need to be built in to the lenses. Altius has this feature, providing the very best glare reduction possible.
The Altius lenses have a hard coating to make them as scratch resistant as possible. They also benefit from hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, which resist grease and water.
By filtering blue light from the spectrum, Altius lenses improve depth perception and contrast, making it easier to judge the terrain ahead. The green lenses provide the best tint for reading greens and fairways in sunny weather.

The C39 lenses used by our lab are top quality, lightweight and utilise all of the features of the standard lenses.
