Specsavers of course. Bespoke Polaroids
pick your frames
pick your tint
have them made to measure and fitted on pickup
why would anyone do anything else???
I mean why not use specsavers? Not why wear them!!!!Why?
Well the answer is quite simple, to reduce eye damage.
I used cheapo polaroids for decades.
I now have severe damage to one eye probably caused by sun reflecting off the the water and damage to both eyes caused by the wind (Consultant surgeons examination and diagnosis).
I now wear Cat 3 for all my angling, Costa 580s (Just wish Id started wearing them sooner).
I recently had my routine 2 yearly examination, fortunately my prescription has not changed.I mean why not use specsavers? Not why wear them!!!!
professionally made to measure high quality glasses and you get 2 for the price of one!
been wearing glasses for everything since 1980 and always used optical polaroids
Been using them for 20+ years. predominantly for sight fishing trout in clear water. Outstanding. My current pair are varifocal too. In action now, waiting for a riseI recently had my routine 2 yearly examination, fortunately my prescription has not changed.
Due to the fact that for a few years now I have been switching between 2 pairs of glasses I have decided now is the time to finally switch to one pair.
I was shown the range of lenses in Specsavers and the polarised lenses pics had a river with fish as the with & without pictures.
I did not buy at the time as they did not have the frames I wanted but the deals they were offering, particularly the 2 for 1 with prescription & polarised lenses seemed good value to me.
I would appreciate anyone`s experiences of Specsavers polarised glasses, as they say warts and all don`t hold back!
Thanks for your reply, those look the business.Been using them for 20+ years. predominantly for sight fishing trout in clear water. Outstanding. My current pair are varifocal too. In action now, waiting for a rise
Bought some costa jose, glass copper, 580's - in 2017 - wear them all the time, pub, driving & every minute on the water - expensive but worth every penny imo.
It's actually the other way around with the etching, the glass has 580 etched and the Polycarbonate lens has 580P on the right hand lensesExpensive is as expensive does.
I paid £3k + for replacement lens surgery so consider £150 for a pair of Costas money well spent.
TIP for anyone buying Costas - there are knock-offs around.
The genuine lenses have the number 580 etched into the glass of the right hand lens, look carefully at the top corner with the glasses facing you. The glass lenses have a G after the number, plastic lenses have just the number.
Glass is better for clarity, plastic provides better impact protection.
