If you are a light aircraft pilot, it is best to wear non polarised sunglasses when flying because they do not cause the patterning effect that polarised lenses do when you are looking at digital navigation displays.

The same applies to yachtsmen and also to drivers of cars that have digital gauges.

Eyewear Accessories have a range of optical quality non polarised flip up sunglasses that are perfect for flying. In particular, we recommend that pilots choose our flip up sunglasses with brown non-polarised lenses.

The lenses reduce the glare when flying in bright sunshine. They also filter out blue light, enhancing contrast and definition to give you the optimum visual acuity when flying through cloud and haze.

And of course, you can flip up the lenses whenever you don't require them.

We have 4 different shapes / sizes of brown flip up sunglasses to suit most types of prescription glasses.

Feedback from recent customers

"I used the clip-ons for the first time today and they exceeded my expectations. They much improved my vision when flying and I could see my Garmin nav aids clearly with them on. I will be recommending them to my friends in the flying club."

"Really good sunglasses for flying and at a very reasonable price compared to the same thing sold in specialist pilot shops. Polarized sunglasses are no use for pilots for 2 reasons: they block light from most modern instruments and 'flatten' the scene, reducing depth perception. These non-polarized flip-ups are the perfect solution. Also great service and responsiveness from the seller."
