Protecting vision from harmful light while increasing visual comfort

Our range of sunglasses includes a variety of lens types and styles, including tinted lenses and polarised sunglasses. Protect your patients’ eyes from harmful UV light and glare in style, with a collection of sunglasses developed with leading technology. At Essilor we have something to suit every patients’ need, from style-conscious lens wearers to those who follow an active lifestyle. 

Sunglasses are just as crucial as clear lenses when it comes to caring for your patients’ vision and overall eye health. Make sure your patients have access to the lens solutions they need, including lenses for curved sports frames. Find out more about our sunglasses collection here.


Performance-driven lenses for sun protection


Our collection of sunglasses have been created with eye health and visual comfort in mind. Offering a high standard of UV protection, Essilor sunglasses are the ideal solution for those spending a lot of time outdoors. For sports and outdoor enthusiasts, SunMax can provide protection from the elements to gain a visual edge, or Xperio can offer reduced glare. Combined with Crizal lens coatings, your patients can achieve ultimate protection from UV light. 


Sunglasses can also be important during recovery from ocular surgery, or for those who are particularly sensitive to light. Including stylish colours and mirrored effects, our range of sunglasses are able to protect your patients’ vision while remaining stylish and contemporary. 


Why choose Essilor?


Our full range of lenses and products give you the chance to protect your patients’ vision better than before. We have developed a range of sunglasses with particular benefits in mind, including an E-SPF rating of 50 and enhanced colour perception. When combined with our other leading lens products, you can be sure you're offering the best possible vision care for your patients. 


Give your patients the chance to enjoy every moment in the sun safely, with continuous UV protection whether they are walking the dog, off on holiday or commuting behind the wheel.
