All Flying Eyes sunglasses are prescription compatible.
*Any optician with a lens lab that can handle curved lenses can make prescription lenses for you that will fit in our frames. Find out more about the process for getting your prescription filled HERE.*
Your vision is your most important asset in the cockpit or on the road. And, we want all adventure enthusiasts to be able to perform at their best, whether they have 20/20 vision or not. That’s why we’ve partnered with several opticians across the US who can provide Flying Eyes with prescription lenses.
For optimum clarity and safety, we recommend asking your optician to use Trivex lenses – an exceptionally clear, lightweight, and impact-resistant material – a perfect complement lens to your Flying Eyes.Scroll down to find an eye doctor near you that we know can put your prescription into our glasses.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of opticians that can do this. Ask your preferred optician if they can make curved lenses!
We continue to expand our network of eye care professionals that offer Flying Eyes prescription lenses. However, if you can't find an eye care professional or optician near you, let us know through our “Contact Us” page and we'll see what we can do to help.
If you are a pilot and want an eye care professional who understands your unique vision needs, check out www.eyesthatfly.com to find a listing of eye care professionals who are also pilots.
If you don't have one of the above opticians near you, or you'd prefer to use another optician, this is generally the process for having your prescription filled for our frames:
- Contact the optician you'd like to use and confirm that they can make curved lenses for sunglass frames. Golden Eagle Sports and Hawk Convertibles have a base 8 curve lens, and our other styles use a base 6 curve.
- Once you've located an optician whose lab can make appropriately curved lenses, purchase the style you'd like from our website (or from one of our Retailers).
- Take the glasses into the optician and have them confirm your pupillary distance and the fitting/segment height for the frame (this is the distance between the bottom of the lens and your pupil).
- The optician will send your measurements, prescription, and the frame to their lens lab to have your lenses made in the correct shape and size. Either the lab or your optician will fit them into the frame, and you'll be contacted to pick up your new glasses!
Contact Us if you have any trouble or need any help during this process. Alternatively, your optician can contact us by phone (512-213-2390) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they have any questions.
