Running

Whether you are running competitively, with your local club, or simply to keep fit, the correct eyewear is vital.  Having the best frame fit and lens option will help reduce eye fatigue and boost concentration.  Running glasses will allow perfect vision in all weather conditions.

Prescription Options

 

  • You can have your prescription fitted directly into the frame
  • You can also have an optical insert adaptor which has your prescription glazed into it
  • You can be fitted with contact lenses and then wear your sunglasses over the top

 

Lens Guide

 

  • Photochromatic lenses are beneficial for long distance running, as the lighting conditions can change with the weather
  • Anti-reflective coatings can be applied to the front or back surface of the lens. This provides you with better clarity of vision
  • Polarised filters can help reduce glare and reflection from off the road, especially in wet conditions
  • Mirror coatings are normally good for overall reduction in brightness, such as reflections off wet road surfaces.  They are very good for running in bright conditions
  • Anti-fog treatment will repel the mist that can cloud your vision
  • Oleophobic and Hydrophobic treatment will stop dirt and grease sticking to your lens maintaining distraction free vision
  • Impact resistance for all round protection whilst running
  • Lightweight for increased comfort
  • Optical precision can be created as we can glaze your prescription into the lens or have an insert
  • 100% UV protection advised
  • Interchangeable lenses for different conditions

 

Tint Guide

 

GREY

  • Good all purpose
  • Minimises colour distortion
  • Good choice for bright conditions

 

BROWN:

  • Provides high contrast
  • Good colour balance
  • Soothing to the eye

 

YELLOW

  • Most effective in low light conditions, or overcast days
  • Superior increase in contrast enhancement

 

CLEAR

  • Good for shielding eyes against wind, dust and any flying objects

 

Frame Guide

 

It is important the frames are lightweight and comfortable.  They also should fit firmly on your face, so that you don’t worry about them slipping down.

 

  • Lightweight
  • Wrap-around style
  • Adjustable nose pads
  • Thermogrip is made with hydrophilic material which has moisture absorbing properties that keep the frame firmly in place whilst sweating
  • Adjustable temples
  • Oversized frames with deep lenses offer a wider field of vision
  • Allow some airflow, as this will help prevent lenses from misting over
