The new Flying Eyes® Sunglasses: Your ears will thank you. Revolutionary, patented, convertible sunglasses for all your adventures with a headset or helmet! Flying Eyes prescription sunglasses, so your vision doesn’t slow you down.
Here’s what makes Flying Eyes different:
- Lightweight, unbreakable Resilamide frames
- Soft nose-pad keeps glasses properly positioned and balanced for optimal fit
- The included strap and cinch is unnoticeable under headsets
- Standard Temples for everyday use
- The included micro-thin Temples for use under a helmet or headset
- Wraparound style gives a wider viewing angle than most frames
- Optically correct, shatterproof polycarbonate lenses with 100% UV400 protection, including our clear bifocal lenses!
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.
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.
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 email@example.com 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.
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.
