Prescription and designer sunglasses


Visique specialise in all types of sunglasses and sunglass lenses and we can help you find the perfect fit and look for you.

Quality sunglasses in the harsh New Zealand sunshine are certainly important, particularly if you spend a reasonable amount of time outdoors. Without adequate protection the sun’s rays, glare and UV can all damage your vision slowly and imperceptibly. But which pair of sunglasses is right for you and your needs?

Polarised Lenses

Have you tried polarising lenses?

When light is reflected from a flat surface: road, water, snow, ice… it becomes polarised. This glare, with its specific properties, is extremely dazzling, uncomfortable on the eyes and can not only impair your vision but also damage your eyes. The best way to block it is to use a polarising filter in front of your eyes.

In everyday outdoor life including summer and winter sports or while driving you will benefit from the best quality of vision with the lowest glare. Normal tinted lenses reduce light. But polarised lenses eliminate reflected glare, thus improving visual comfort and safety. They also restore the richness of colours in your environment. Polarising is available in most prescription sunglasses.
