INNOVATION PLUS PRESCRIPTION RC MODELGLASSES


Dominik Haegelle wears Innovation Plus Modelglasses

Innovation Plus bring all the benefits of our standard Modelglasses, including the interchangeable lenses, to spectacle wearers - as used by many of the world's top RC pilots. You will find information on how to purchase these sunglasses with corrective lenses included, below.

The Package

Each pair of Innovation Plus comes with the following as standard:

  • High-quality, polycarbonate frame
  • Category 0 AR coated lens, for dark conditions
  • Category 2 polarised lens, for fairly bright conditions
  • Category 3 polarised lens, for normal sunny conditions
  • Category 4 lens, for very bright conditions
  • Bespoke carry case
  • Cleaning cloth
  • Head retainer strap

The Frames

Innovation Plus prescription sunglasses are built around a matt-black finished frame that has a prescription Rx clip housed in the back, whilst the tinted, interchangeable one-piece lens assembly sits 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 an almost indestructible TR90 material, ensures maximum protection for your eyes from impact.

An important feature of our Innovation Plus 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.

The Lenses

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 Innovation Plus lens sets are de-centred, which means they are calibrated to remove the distorting effect. An anti-scratch coating reduces the chances of spoiling your lenses in every day usage.

The Category 0 lens benefits from the addition of an AR (anti reflective) coating, which reduces the glare from artificial lights at night. Polarised lenses filter horizontal light that bounces off clouds and wing surfaces to remove glare in brighter conditions.

How To Order

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.

Is My Prescription Suitable?

Innovation 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.


PD (Pupillary Distance)

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.

How Long Does it Take to Make My Prescription?

Turnaround times from date of order is typically 7 - 10 days for distance correction and 10 - 14 days for bifocals. Please allow a few more days if you are not in the UK, to allow for the extra shipping time.
