If you already own a pair of Rapid Eyewear Rx sunglasses, and your prescription has changed or you need to add your corrective lenses to an existing order, you can buy a new ready-to-go insert here.
The optical insert (Rx) adaptor will fit all of our prescription sports sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. Note: The default purchase setting is for an Rx insert only. To renew your prescription you must click on the option you require at the top of this page before continuing.

This Rx insert will fit into the following products:

  • Aviate
  • Innovation Plus
  • Pro Performance
  • Pro Performance Plus
  • Pro X Prescription
  • Catch Pro Prescription
  • Drive Prescription
  • Photochromic prescription
When you receive the insert, you can replace the old one by pulling it downwards and out of the frame. The new insert fits into a slot in the nose-bridge section of your sunglasses.

How to Order

To add prescription lenses, choose your preferred option by clicking on the relevant button at the top of this page and then complete the information boxes that appear by matching the correct parameters from the drop-down menus with those on your dispensed prescription. Please read through the information below before you proceed.

If there is nothing written in some or all of the CYL (cylinder) and Axis boxes on your prescription, please select 0 from the menu where relevant. See the section below on 'Pupillary Distance' for information on what to enter here.

SPH (sphere) and CYL (cylinder) readings are always accompanied by a plus or minus sign. It is very important that you choose the correct plus or minus parameter from the menu for each reading. Sometimes if the readings are minus, the sign will be written above the numbers by your optician.

Prescription Options

We can make single-vision (distance) or bifocal lenses, with either C39 or polycarbonate lenses. Both materials are very robust and optically superb - the only difference between the two is that polycarbonate offers additional, impact resistant strength and may be suitable for those who use their sunglasses for activities such as shooting, or paragliding etc.

How Long Does It Take?

If you are ordering a single-vision (distance correction) prescription, please allow 7 - 10 days to receive your insert (if you are returning your existing insert, allow 7 - 10 days from our receiving it). For bifocal correction, allow 14 - 18 days.

What Are the Prescription Limits?

Inserts can be made to a maximum distance correction of plus or minus 4.5; this equates to the SPH (sphere) on your prescription. The reasons for this are the thickness of the lens we have to make for the insert, and the calibration of the slightly curved lens optics.

Can You Make Progressives (Varifocals)?

We cannot offer a varifocal / progressive or prism service. This is because to make these lenses, the exact point at which your eye pupil corresponds to the lens has to be marked and we cannot do that remotely. If you require varifocals, please ask your optician to help.

What Is PD?

PD is an abbreviation for 'Pupillary Distance'. it is the distance, in millimetres, between the centres of your eye pupils. It is very rare for an optician to put this information on your prescription, and they are not obliged to reveal it to you. Many opticians will either refuse to tell you your PD, or they will ask you for money in return for revealing it. The reason for this is that opticians do not like their customers buying their eyewear elsewhere.

The good news is, it is very easy to measure your PD. Whilst wearing your regular glasses, ask someone to hold a standard ruler up against the front of them and measure the distance between your eye pupil centres in millimetres - it should be in the range 55mm - 72mm.

If you cannot measure your PD for some reason, we may be able to make your insert by using the average measurement, which is 63mm. For smaller prescriptions (e.g. less that plus or minus 2.00) the tolerance of a PD is very wide and so your eyewear should work with no problems, even if 63mm is several millimetres out.

Important Note

Rapid Eyewear optical adaptors will only fit Rapid Eyewear's dedicated Rx prescription frame. If you arrived at this page from a search engine because you were looking for an Rx adaptor to fit sunglasses other than those made by Rapid Eyewear, please do not buy this product.
