If you’re a four eyed freak like me, chances are you have problems finding prescription sports sunglasses. The difficulty you encounter with these types of frames is that the curved wrap required to make them protective tends to cause distortion at higher prescriptions, and for me, manifests itself in a feeling of claustrophobia or a headache.
In order to maintain the same level of protection but offer prescription wearers who shun contacts a more flatting look, Bollé has come up with an innovative solution for their top tier model – the 6th Sense.
Rather than using a dorky additional insert, Bollé has fitted prescription inserts directly and permenantly into the oversized lens. They’ve dubbed this technology the B-Thin Active RX, and it can accommodate everything from +6 to -8 prescriptions.
Like all of their 6th Sense models (which we covered in depth here), the lenses are made from Trivex, which is thinner and offers better optical clarity than the polycarbonate used in traditional sports eyewear.
The company will be offering twelve different lenses in their RX program, including polarized and mirrored options. They’ll also offer eight different lenses that have contrasting colored inserts. The prescription inserts start at $600, while progressives will run $775.
