Full-frame Wraparound

Full-frame Wraparound

By following the contour of your head, a full wrap will provide the ultimate protection from direct sun rays and reflected light from the surface of the water. The full frame also maximises protection from wind and spray.

PRESCRIPTION

Directly glazed lenses are the preferred choice, as they stop water getting trapped between lens and insert. For those with high prescription, brands like Bolle and Serengeti are ideal options. We also offer varifocals for those who also need to read maps, charts, tie knots and other nautical essentials.

Below you can take a look at the effect of different lens colours for sailing.

Drag the slider to view more of the image with your chosen lens colour.

Naked Eye
Selected Lens
POLARISED GREY - Neutral tint, simple shading effect, so ideal for bright days.
POLARISED BROWN - Again, ideal for bright days, but with a degree of contrast enhancement, which will help if the sun disappears behind the clouds.
POLARISED AMBER - More of a specialist's choice, the amber lens will enhance contrast and improve depth perception in overcast conditions. The polarised filter will cut through the glare that still exists on all but the darkest days.
