If you require a prescription with your sports safety glasses just follow the following steps:
Choose the style of frame, the frame colour and frame width required and then click on the ‘Prescription available' icon below the product image.
This will show you all the prescription options available for your chosen frame as can be seen below. Click on the icons that meet your requirement in the four horizontal boxes. This will narrow down your choice so that you can browse through the prescription packages at the bottom of the screen relevant to your need. If you are unsure of what to choose, just hold your cursor over the icons for more information to guide you through the process.
Tip: For sports protective eyewear you will need to select either the ‘Poly’ or ‘NXT icons for the type of lens required. These are designed for impact resistance and will protect your eyes in sports such as football, cycling or squash against fast moving object.
At the bottom of the screen is a slider bar with a summary of the key features of the prescription packages that meets your need. It includes important information such as the sphere and cylinder range available and other options that might be required such as a bifocal.
Browse through your selected packages and click on the ‘More info’ button below them to provide more details about the specific package. Once selected click on the ‘Add to Basket’. This will tie your frame and prescription option together and guide you through the login/registration process.
At this stage you will be requested to login or register your details. You will then be directed to select your requirement and load your prescription as seen below.

Tip: If you require a bifocal, when you load your prescription, let us know which sport you use your eyewear in the comments box available. We will then set your reading distance and size optimally for you so that it minimises any interference with your distance vision.

Enter the details from your prescription. We will also need your pupillary distance (PD).This is the distance between the pupils of your eyes. You can either ask your optician or just measure it yourself. If you decide to measure it, please click here for guidance. If you have any issues or concerns, just leave a message in the comments box provided.
Tip: We only need the prescription details that your optician has provided and your PD. Some customers have complex prescriptions so we need to provide options for them to provide these extra details. So don’t worry if you only have Spheres or Spheres, Cylinders and Axis information.
