Most modern sunglasses, particularly those designed for sport, have a high lens curvature which is important to the function of sports frames, but can lead to an increase in visual distortion.
The Wolds Pioneer freeform SV DS and Wolds Pioneer Individual NG progressive lenses are premium, highly personalised lenses, and are ideal for use in high wrap sports frames and sunglasses.
When ordering these it is important to provide the following additional measurements:
Pantoscopic tilt angle, Frame curvature & BVD and specify the basecurve of the frame.
This enables us to compensate the power of the lens to allow for the extra curve by aligning the optical axis and the visual axis.
These lenses are available clear, tinted, polarised, mirror coated and with back surface anti-reflection coatings.
A specialist sports glazing service is available if required
