Today you can enjoy longer Summer days in Sneaking Duck Prescription Sunnies.
Shielding your prescription-reliant peepers from the glaring summer sun has never been more fun. Gone are the days of hopelessly squinting through sunscreen-fingerprinted clear lenses, and cursing when sand scratches your $600 lenses with grains of sand. How do we know? Because we wear glasses too.
The Sneaking Duck Sunnies Collection covers all manner of shapes – cateye, aviator, round, wayfarer-inspired so that you’re always looking fab as you stretch out on the beach.
What makes sunglasses, sunglasses?
Besides the obvious, i.e. protecting your eyes from the sun, sunnies have a range of uses depending on the lens and frame. From fighter pilots to sports people, sunglasses have a known utility purpose. But more importantly, the design world has taken sunglasses into the realm of fashion, and the right pair can turn your outfit from so-so to sexy-sun-sational!
So why invest in good quality sunglasses, if you don’t have a prescription? Yes, you can buy cheap sunnies off the shelf at your local servo, but many cheapies have a thin plastic lens material not made by an optical lens manufacturer, so you might not be getting optimal vision or protection. Our non-prescription lenses are made in the same lab as our optical lenses, so you can be assured that you are getting a great product. All our sunnies provide proper protection from the sun’s harmful rays – they provide adequate coverage of the eyes and are fully UV-proof.
What’s the difference between polarised and normal sunnies?
Tinted and polarising
Tinted lenses are just like clear lenses, but they are ‘dyed’ dark. This, plus a UV tint filter makes them suitable for wearing in the sun, to minimise the effect of UV rays. Non-prescription sunglasses have a Category – and ours are Category 3, which is the optiam level of protection. Our prescription lenses are available for Sphere powers from -4.00 to +5.00 and also provide full UV protection.
Polarised lenses are slightly different. Have you ever turned your phone on its side and the screen goes completely black? If you’re wearing polarised sunglasses at the time, this is normal! (If you weren’t wearing sunnies, maybe visit your phone retailer or optometrist!). A polarised lens has a glare filter in the lens, meaning it acts like kind of a venetian blind for your eyes. Polarisation is particularly good for cutting out glare from wet roads when you’re driving; and other little bits of reflected glare off surfaces that you don’t really notice, but make a huge difference. We’ve currently got these lenses available in plano only. If you’ve got a prescription, why not get a pair to wear over your contact lenses?

Sneaking Duck frames are really versatile, and look great with clear or tinted lenses. We’ve shown you a few examples of our frames that look great as sunglasses, but we’re happy to go outside this range, just let us know.
