SKI GOGGLES UNIVERSAL RX INSERT FOR PRESCRIPTION GLASSES WEARERS (ADULT SIZE)
Highly practical and versatile, Rapid Eyewear's ski goggles Rx insert will fit most ski and snowboarding designs available on the market today. Made from a robust TR90 material, the adaptor has sprung arms on the top and bottom that simply 'jam' themselves above and below the lens inside your goggles.
We are delighted to offer a full prescription service for this product - see below for details of how to order. If you would prefer to have your own optician undertake the optical work, simply buy the insert only (this is the default buying option on this page) and take it to them. IMPORTANT: If taking the insert to your optician, please ask them not to use alcohol-based cleaner to finish the job as this will ruin the plastic.
Please note this adaptor is sized to fit in adult ski and climbing goggles. Please check the diagram with dimensions shown below carefully before ordering. Note that the four spring arms are designed to squeeze inwards and will therefore fit into goggles with a minimum lens height of approx. 5.5cm. Fully extended, the arms stretch to 7.7cm.
Ordering A Full Prescription Service
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.
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.
A full warranty is offered on the prescription work undertaken on your behalf. If you receive an insert and discover the prescription is not right, you can return it to us for checking at no cost. If we have to rework an insert because of an error in your prescription, we may charge a rework cost to cover our expenses with the optical lab. it is very rare for mistakes to be made in the manufacture of lenses by our professional optical laboratory, however if this does occur, all errors will be corrected at no charge.
