Transition lenses prescription sunglasses

For more colour options, consider Transition™ lenses. With the summer season fast approaching, you’ll get a head start on those bright, sunny days. Transition™ lenses act like sunglasses, providing UV protection, while automatically darkening when you’re outdoors. Along with the more traditional colours of grey, brown or graphite, colour options also include emerald green, sapphire, amethyst or amber. Find out more about Transition™ lenses here.

Colour guide to enhance your skin tone

If colours have you a bit lost and you don’t know what will suit you, here is a simple guide. The most flattering frame colours for a warm skin tone are brown shades, gold or honey, and olive green. With a warm skin tone, be sure to stay away from pastels.

For cool skin tones, avoid colours that will wash you out. Strong colours like black, purple, blue and mauve will look superb. You’ll also look great in grey or silver.
