What does SunRx mean?
With SunRx, we can work with our lens partners to upgrade your Sunglasses to Prescription Sunglasses. This process is often referred to as 'Rx' or 'Rx-able'. Your new sunglasses can have their standard lenses replaced with prescription lenses making them perfectly match your vision correction prescription.
Working closely with our team, brands and lens providers, we have identified all the sunglass models suitable for re-glazed by our in-house optician with a sunglass grade lens from ZEISS, Kodak and WLC.
How do I order prescription sunglasses online?
1. Select Your Lens Brand
ZEISS lenses, manufactured in Germany represent the ultimate in optical precision and quality. Each order undergoes numerous stringent quality checks to ensure the highest standards are maintained.

Kodak lenses represent excellent value for money for what is a very good sun lens. Kodak prides itself on the production of sun lenses which pay attention to colour and clarity with particularly good polarised lenses under the UV Sun title.
WLC lenses are very popular with Optometrists across the country representing their entry level choice. All lens options are available from standard tints to mirror lenses with back surface anti glare coatings.
2. Choose Your Lens Package
These options allow you to select the most appropriate lens material for your prescription. Our recommendations are as follows:
3. Sun Lens Option
Block Colour: This is a standard sunglass tint in which the colour and degree of tint is same throughout the lens.
Gradient: This lens will have a darker top portion and a gradual reduction in tint to a lighter lower portion.
Polarised: These lenses are the best choice in sunglasses lenses as not only do they reduce sun light intensity they also cut out reflected glare from road surfaces and water. This offers considerable improvement in visual comfort when driving in bright sun. They are also very popular with anglers, sailors and anyone taking part in sports.
Mirrored: This lens has a front surface mirror coating. The reflective properties help keep your eyes cool by reflecting infrared light transmission. They are also popular with those who wish to remain a little more anonymous as your eyes cannot be seen.
Anti-Glare: This special back coating helps to eliminate back surface ‘bounce back’ from entering your eyes and causing visual discomfort or distraction. This option in combination with polarisation represent the very best in sunglass lens design.
