Tints, light sensitive reactions & sunglasses

Please scroll down to check out our optional tints, filters and light-sensitive reactions. Any of these options can be added to the lens package you've chosen.

Please note: Regardless of the original tint and colour of your chosen sunglasses, a tint MUST be selected as an extra for prescription sunglasses as we are making your lenses from scratch - not adding a prescription to the original lenses - so this is has to be an add on! You can select a tint which is the same as the original or pick something entirely different - it is up to you!

When choosing the lenses to suit your needs, be sure to consider the lens thickness (index) and the anti-reflective, protective coating you feel is most appropriate for your environment. Bear in mind, the stronger your prescription, the thicker the lens will be - so opting for a higher index and thinner/lighter lens will benefit you both in terms of comfort and looks. Scroll down and take a look at our five comprehensive options for your lens package.
