Lens Types


Polarised Lenses

Polarised lenses have a polarisation film built into them. These films act as millions of microscopic mirrors that reflect light that comes from the top and bottom of the lens. This prevents glare reflections from roads, snow and water hitting your eyes. Our lenses are made from one of the best performing Japanese polarisation films which is rated at a 99.9% efficacy rate.
Polarised lenses are found in many sports brands and are uncommon in fashion eyewear. However, many of our customers opt to upgrade to a polarised lens in fashion eyewear for the added glare protection and soothing performance they deliver.
Additionally, many migraine sufferers find that polarised lenses work well as reducing the onset of migraine headaches.

Poly Carbonate Lenses (PC)

Our SFx High Clarity and PC Polarised lenses are made from Polycarbonate.
Polycarbonate lenses is one of the most common sunglasses lenses found on the market. Most fashion and sports sunglasses use this medium in their lenses. It is a very safe lens and is the only lens to be used for safety glasses.
It's optical properties are not as good as glass or our Ultimate lenses and they can slightly distort or magnify things. However, this is subtle and most users do not notice it. However, if you have sensitive eyes you will be better off with our Ultimate lenses.

SFx Ultimate Lenses

Our Ultimate Lenses are made from polyamide. This material has similar optical properties as glass lenses. However, they are 1/3 the weight of glass and are significantly safer as they do not break. They last longer than most polycarbonate lenses and provide clearer vision. Polyamide lenses are found in some of the top models from high end sport manufacturers, like Oakley's high performance range. Most use polycarbonate for the mid range sunglasses they will put Polyamide in their top of the line models.
Ultimate lenses can not be used as safety lenses. They can withstand a steel ball traveling at 120 feet per second. Safety requirements demand 150 feet per second which is what polycarbonate, the most common safety lens, can withstand.
