It is almost the right time of year to unearth your sunglasses and dust them off, ready for better weather and hopefully a bit of sunshine. The most important thing to remember during the summer months is to protect yourself from UV light.

It is almost the right time of year to unearth your sunglasses and dust them off, ready for better weather and hopefully a bit of sunshine. The most important thing to remember during the summer months is to protect yourself from UV light, including your skin by wearing sun cream, and your eyes by wearing the right sunglasses. 

Safeguarding your eyes against harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as shielding your eyes from bright light and glare, should be your priority when searching for sunglasses. However, this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style! At Essilor, our collection of sunglasses have something to suit every vision need and lifestyle.

Discover our range of Xperio sunglasses

Our extensive range of Xperio lenses allows you to create the ultimate sun lens, with the additional benefit of adding your prescription. Whether you’re looking for something stylish or practical, or even a bit of both, you’ll find it in our Xperio range.

We can offer three different types of sunglasses for you to choose from, each with its own features and benefits to suit your vision needs and personal style.

Xperio polarised sunglasses

Created with breakthrough polarised technology, Xperio polarised lenses are designed to eliminate glare that is reflected off surfaces, which can often be blinding. Glare is light that is reflected horizontally, but polarised technology means that only vertical light enters the lens, resulting in much more comfortable and clear vision.

Eliminating glare means you can enjoy a more comfortable driving experience, as well as enjoying time out in the sunshine, including being out on the water. What’s more, Xperio polarised lenses offer the highest level of UV protection across our lens range. So, if you’ve just had ocular surgery, you’re particularly sensitive to light or you’re simply looking for comfortable and protected vision, Xperio polarised lenses are the solution.

Polarised lenses can also deliver enhanced colour perception and improved contrast to increase your visual comfort. They are available in a wide array of colours, including various shades of brown, grey, blue and violet.

Xperio Tint sunglasses

Tinted sunglasses are designed to protect your vision from harmful UV light, with added benefits such as reducing glare. The difference with Xperio Tint sunglasses, compared to other lenses in the range, is they allow you to perceive colours as naturally as possible too.

Xperio tinted lenses can allow you to see digital screens clearly, as the lens can reduce colour distortion and mute the brightness of the sun while maintaining visual clarity and contrast.

You can choose the intensity of the tint, as well as the colour. We have options including black, brown, grey, blue and burgundy, all of which have been developed to respect the natural colour balance.

Xperio Mirrors 

The third type of lens in our Xperio collection is Xperio Mirrors. This style is a contemporary design, offering a mirrored finish to your sunglasses. Xperio Mirrors can be combined with tinted or polarised sun lenses to get the most out of your vision and to suit your lifestyle. 

Xperio Mirror lenses will protect your eyes from UV light, delivering comfortable vision while you are outside. Our collection of mirrored lenses is available in a great choice of stylish colours, including orange, bronze, silver, violet, ocean blue, forest green and candy pink.
