Sunwise: British Sunglasses for Sport and Leisure

As Spring approaches, we’re all dreaming of longer days and warmer, sunnier, drier weather. Many of us have embarked on new outdoor activities to keep our spirits up over the last 12 months since the start of the global pandemic. More people than ever have rekindled existing interests in different outdoor sports, not least cycling, which has also become a practical method of transport to get to and from work.

We thought now would be a good time to introduce you to our range of sports prescription eyewear from British company Sunwise. They offer a very practical solution of lightweight, wraparound affordable sports eyewear, ideal for cyclists, runners, and golfers.


Sunwise has been established in the sports eyewear market since 1996, and the brand has been supporting sports professionals for the last ten years. They offer sport eyewear solutions for all sporting activities including running, cycling, cricket, and golf. This award-winning collection of sports eyewear, which is designed in Britain, provides a technical and innovative solution for sporting performance. There are many styles within the collection to suit the needs of all sporting enthusiasts.

The collection offers a diverse range of models which either come supplied with inserts, easy to glaze gaskets, or direct glazing options which means that we can put your prescription into any of the models.

Over the last ten years, working alongside sporting professionals and listening to the needs of customers, and dispensing opticians, Sunwise has developed a great innovative collection that covers the needs of most sporting activities. They have recognised a gap in the sports eyewear market for functional, lightweight appealing sports eyewear solutions at very affordable prices.

The beauty of this product is the versatility it offers its wearer, being able to glaze each model using inserts or gaskets also allows the person wearing them to easily interchange the lenses for different tinted options. So whatever the weather conditions Sunwise has an affordable high-quality option to suit all sporting activities. Sunwise sunglasses are made to the highest standards, using the latest technological materials to produce high-quality lightweight, versatile eyewear which is impact resistant and shatterproof.

Every pair of Sunwise sunglasses come with a one-year comprehensive guarantee, and all the lenses offer 100% UVA and UVB protection against ultraviolet light, so not only will this sports eyewear collection offer fantastic comfort, durability, and protection against debris, wind, and rain, it also offers you protection against the unseen UV rays which are harmful to our eyes, all at a very affordable price.

Prices start from £130 for the Sunwise system, including single vision prescription tinted lenses, with UV protection.

If you would prefer to wear contact lenses but still want to wear high-performance and affordable sports sunglasses, prices start from £59.99 including four different lens options. So whatever the weather conditions or the time of year you can still enjoy your favourite sport whilst protecting your eyes.
