Rapid Eyewear's Pro Performance Plus multi-lens prescription sports glasses are renowned as being some of the best on the market - they offer the best value too.
For detailed information on having your prescription fitted, scroll down this page to the section titled 'How to Order.'
Pro Performance Plus prescription sunglasses are perfect for just about any sports and leisure activity because they have:
Our prescription sunglasses 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, whilst the wrap-around styling blocks unwanted wind and light encroaching from the sides and bottom of your vision. The Pro-Performance sunglasses look good too, easily matching the style of many non-prescription sport sunglasses designs.
The frames are lightweight and tough, whilst the Rx clip, made from a robust TR90 material, ensures maximum protection for your eyes from impact.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 Rapid Eyewear lens sets are de-centred, which means they are calibrated to remove the distorting effect.
The lenses supplied as standard are:
By filtering blue light, our lenses improve definition and depth perception in your field of view. Polarised lenses remove glare from by filtering out horizontal light.
Pro Performance Plus are supplied with a retainer strap, carry case and cleaning cloth as standard. The case has internal pouches for spare lenses, and belt fixing loops and catches.
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 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 equal to or less than (plus or minus) 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 measurement between the centres of your eye pupils, across your regular glasses. Your optician will have measured your PD when you took your eye test, but they do not always provide the information. If you're not sure what your PD is, or your optician will not give it to you (in the UK they are not obliged to), ask someone to measure it by placing a ruler against your regular glasses. Do not take a measurement with the ruler flat against your face because this will provide an incorrect reading.
Most PD's are in the range of 58 - 70mm. Please note that, if your PD is above 69mm, these sunglasses will not be suitable for you.
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.
Turnaround times from date of order is typically 7 - 10 days for UK orders, and a little longer for overseas.
Please note that we cannot fit varifocal or prismatic lenses - your optician will be able to help with these requirements.
