Which lens colour do you want?

The information will help you select the lens colour most suited to your requirements.

Also see the page on the technical and safety specification of 7eye lenses.

Please note that these lens options apply to the non-prescription lenses supplied by 7eye. If you require prescription lenses to be fitted, a similar range of lens colours will be available through Ciliary Blue.

SharpView Clear

7eye SharpView clear lenses

  • Light transmission: 80%
  • A useful option for winter cycling and golf and for using Ziena glasses in the office
  • These lenses provide 100% UVA + UVB protection
  • A drawback is that when wearing protective glasses with clear lenses, the gasket will be at its most visible, making the glasses look more goggle-like in appearance.

    SharpView Polar Copper (Dark brown)

    • Light transmission: 12%, Polarised
    • Polar Copper is an equivalent tint to a dark brown
    • These lenses have a polarising filter that reduces glare, especially at low angles and when reflected from shiny surfaces such as water - this makes polarised lenses the best choice if you are buying sunglasses for summer use
    • A popular choice for cycling, sailing, skiing, fishing, and golf because it increases contrast and definition while also protecting your eyes from reflected glare
    • Good to wear with 7eye AirShield sunglasses because it conceals the view of the eye cup

    SharpView Polar Grey

    • Light transmission: 12%, Polarised
    • A dark grey, neutral tint with the added benefit of a polarising filter that reduces glare, especially at low angles and when reflected from shiny surfaces such as water - this makes polarised lenses the best choice if you are buying sunglasses for summer use
    • Designed for use in bright conditions
    • Good to wear with 7eye AirShield sunglasses because it conceals the view of the eye cup

    Light-reactive (photochromic) lenses

    These lenses automatically darken when you are outdoors in the sunshine.

    In cloudy weather they may hardly change at all. In bright sunny weather they will change to a darker colour (though not as dark as the polarised lenses - see above).

    Please read below about the specific properties of the 24:contrast lenses (light-reactive brown) and 24:7 eclypse lenses.

     

    24:7 Contrast (light-reactive brown)

    • These lenses have a very light yellowy brown tint indoors and in low light. They darken automatically to dark brown in full sun
    • Light transmission in full sun is 18%
    • Excellent choice for all year round use:
      • On dull days, contrast and definition are enhanced and colours appear more vivid
      • On bright days, the lens darkens progressively as the glare from the sun increases
    • Customers have rated this lens well for cycling, walking, golf, tennis and skiing because it enhances contrast and definition

      24:7 Eclypse (light-reactive grey)

      • Dark Grey in full sun, lightening to virtually Clear in low light
      • Light transmission in full sun is 18%
      • Versatile choice if you are looking for clear glasses when indoors and sunglasses when outdoors

        Points to note about light-reactive lenses:

        • activated by UV light and do not react behind a car windscreen or behind a motorcycle helmet visor
        • darker when used in very cold climates than in very warm ones
