Do your sunglasses protect my eyes?
All our sunglasses are guaranteed to absorb more than 99% of harmful UVA & UVB rays, many are 100% as indicated in individual product descriptions. They comply with the latest European Directive 89/686/EEC in accordance with Standard BS EN 1836:2005 meeting ANSI Z80.3 UV General Purpose Protection Standards and have been proven and tested in accordance with the latest guidelines. They reduce infrared rays and filter colour while maintaining high levels of visible contrast. Impact resistant lenses have passed the FDA requirements (FDWA1). As a result, they are almost unbreakable under normal use. They are lightweight, comfortable, durable and reduce glare.
Many of our sunglasses have optically-decentered lenses for clear distortion free vision.
Our sunglasses should not be used for direct viewing of the sun or in a solarium which could cause harm.
What are the differences in your lens types?
Polycarbonate Lenses: These are a higher quality material than standard acrylic lenses. They are particularly popular on one-piece and sports styles due to the ability of the material to bend without breaking and to be shatterproof.
Polarised Lenses: Polarised lenses have the benefit of filtering out reflected light and glare off water, pavement and snow. This lens works great for fishing, boating, driving or any other glare intensive activity. Polarised lenses are the best way to eliminate both glare and UV light. Polarisation is achieved by magentically aligning the plastic/polycarbonate fibres in the lens to reduce refraction as light passes through the lens.
Flash Mirror Lens Coating: A special treatment is applied over the base tints to reduce light and glare. Flash mirror gives a slight mirror finish to the lens.
Do they come with a guarantee?
Yes, they come with a 14 day no quibble guarantee from the date they are purchased, for more information please refer to our guarantee page. Many of our product lines products come with a 12 month warranty against material defects (excludes scratching of the lenses). Please refer to the individual product descriptions.
