POLARISED SAILING SUNGLASSES: PRO PERFORMANCE PLUS



Rapid Eyewear's Pro Performance Plus multi-lens prescription sunglasses for sailing 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.'

Why Are They So Good?

Pro Performance Plus prescription sunglasses are perfect for sailing because they have:

  • Interchangeable polarised lenses for different light conditions
  • Yellow Cat 0 lenses for improving contrast in poor light
  • impact resistant frames and lenses for crash protection
  • 100% UVA / UVB protection
  • Included retainer strap, to keep your sunglasses firmly on your head in difficult conditions
  • They look like 'normal' sunglasses - far better than clip-on's
  • Wrap-around styling blocks unwanted light from the peripheries of your vision


The Frames

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.

De-Centred and Anti-Scratch Coated 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 Rapid Eyewear lens sets are de-centred, which means they are calibrated to remove the distorting effect.

The lenses supplied as standard are:

  • Clear, untinted
  • Category 0 yellow, for dull light
  • Category 2 beige polarised, for fairly bright or changeable light
  • Category 3 polarised grey mirror, for sunny conditions


By filtering blue light, our lenses improve definition and depth perception in your field of view. Polarised lenses filter horizontal light that bounces off horizontal surfaces, such as the water's surface, to cause glare.

The Package

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.

Conformity

Rapid Eyewear sunglasses conform to British, European and US standards for sunglasses and protective equipment testing. They offer 100% UVA / UVB (uv400) protection.

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.

Is My Prescription Suitable?

Pro Performance Plus sunglasses can be used for any regular prescription where the SPH (Sphere) requirement does not exceed 4.5 (whether the reading is plus or minus). Due to the curvature of the tinted lenses, they will not be suitable for those with very strong prescription requirements that exceed this figure.

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 UK orders, and a little longer for overseas.

I Am Not in the UK - Will You Still Add My Prescription?

Yes! Our full prescription service is now available to customers worldwide and there are no extra fees.

Extra Tinted Lenses

If you play golf, you may want to consider adding our green mirror Category 3 lens option; we are also pleased to offer a dark, smoked Category 4 lens for extreme sun conditions. If you wish to purchase extra lenses, make your choice by clicking on the appropriate button close to the top of this page before completing your purchase.
