The Sunglass Fix Story

The Sunglass Fix is an award-winning sustainable business and a pioneer and global leader in replacement lenses for sunglasses.
Based in Byron Bay in the north of NSW, we have hundreds of thousands of customers across 161 countries.
Founded in Australia in 2006
More than a decade ago, Craig Anderson opened a drawer and found a couple of pairs of scratched sunnies. His natural urge to fix things rather than throw them away, especially things of quality, got the better of him.
In his search for answers, he uncovered two startling truths. First, it was either close to impossible, or extremely expensive, to find replacement sunglass lenses. Second, one billion pairs of sunglasses are sold each year, meaning that a lot end up in landfill!
With a lifelong hankering to fulfil a dream of starting his own sustainable business, and energised by a great idea, Craig decided to take the leap. He left his corporate IT career and The Sunglass Fix was born. That was 2006.
The vision then, as it is now, was to create a one-stop-global-shop with the largest and most diverse range of sunglass lenses possible so that "there's a solution for everybody".
By offering super high quality replacement lenses people that could install themselves, Craig was convinced The Sunglass Fix would be a sustainable business that would help people save money – and the planet. He was right.
Today, Sunglass Fix is an award-winning sustainable business recognised as a pioneer and global leader in the sunglass replacement lens market. Based in northern NSW, we’ve made lenses for hundreds of thousands of customers across 161 countries.
We carry over 130,000 replacement lens and model combinations ready for immediate dispatch anywhere in the world. True to our original vision, our team can custom make and install lenses in just about any pair of sunglasses that have two separate lenses.
What inspires us most is the knowledge we're doing our bit to help our planet. We take our commitment to corporate social responsibility and having a sustainable business model seriously. When customers keep the same frames (looking like new) over many years, waste is reduced. At the same time, they're getting exceptional value sunglass lenses that, in most cases, exceed the original manufacturer's quality.
It has taken our team years of research and development to refine our lenses to the point that they've become industry-changing solutions for sunglass wearers. And we got there, thanks to your support.
