Summer Hawk Optics now offers prescription lenses for its Flying Eyes Hawk sunglasses. Due to the nature of Flying Eyes’s 8-base frame, we require exact physical measurements from your optometrist when you give us your prescription information. When you order frames with prescription lenses, we will first send you a pair of frames with plain clear lenses, to allow for proper measurement at your optometrist’s. Once you send us your measurements, we will have the lenses made and send the lenses to you separately, free shipping. You can then replace the clear lenses in your frames with your new prescription lenses.

While the frames come with a money-back guarantee, prescription lenses are not refundable. They can only be exchanged if there’s a problem with them.

HIGHEST QUALITY

Our prescription lenses are made by Digital Eye Lab using Shamir lenses which is one of the highest quality lens manufacturers in the world. And, the lenses are constructed from Trivex which is similar in durability to polycarbonate but with even more optical clarity. They’re also often lighter weight than many other materials, depending on the prescription. And, all prescription lenses offer UV400, 100% UV protection and built-in scratch protection.

PRESCRIPTION REQUIREMENTS

We will need a copy of your prescription and we will also need two additional bits of information in order to complete your prescription. First is the pupillary distance and second is the segment height if you’re ordering bifocals or progressive lenses. This information can be obtained very easily by your optometrist.

Prescription strength range available is -4.00 to +4.00.

You can email your prescription to us at sunglasses@flyingeyes.biz and we’ll review it and contact you to go over it as well as your options. If you have ordered prescription lenses from us before and wish to replace them, please email us also.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

Your optician may also be able to have prescription lenses made for your Flying Eyes sunglasses. Bear in mind that wrap sunglasses like ours (called an “8 base” frame) are difficult to create and while many prescription labs can create lenses for 8 base frames, only a few have the ability to create lenses that are the quality and clarity that you require.

Lens options available

Standard Neutral Gray Tint

Neutral gray tinting is best for viewing charts, maps and LCD screens as it gives an honest representation of the entire color spectrum. Gray tinting works just as well as brown tinting for blocking glare and decreasing the brightness of sunlight.

Polarized (Standard Neutral Gray Tint)

Polarization filters out glare from specific angles which can be helpful while in or near oceans or lakes. However, they can be a problem for pilots when viewing LCD screens such as your Primary Flight Display or Apple iPad. For pilots, a non-polarized lens may be the best solution.

Gradient Gray Tint

Our new Gradient Tint lenses are excellent at blocking harsh sunlight through the windshield, while allowing for easier viewing of the instrument panel inside. The gradient tinting is quite subtle, and most people will not be aware that your lenses have a gradation.

Transitions Photochromic lenses

Transitions Photochromic lenses will darken when outdoors and go almost completely clear when indoors. Historically, photochromic lenses don’t work well in the car or in the cockpit of a plane because they work using UV light and modern windows block much of it. Transitions XTRActive lenses are the first photochromic lens that will work while in a vehicle.
