Tint / colors / density

Postby mshedden on Thu Mar 25, 2010 8:34 am

Is there a chart somewhere on this website (or elsewhere) that indicates the transmission % for the various prescription sunglasses lenses that Optics Planet offers?

Thanks!

Hi mshedden,

Unfortunately there is no a standard color chart. We use different labs to fulfill prescription sun glasses orders depending on which Rx program each brand offers. Please let me know which prescription sunglasses brand you are looking at & which color you are interested in, and i will see if we have an image. If not, I will try to describe it for you.

Julbo prescription sunglasses are very popular with our customers :D I have just checked the inventory for Drus model - just the black frame is currently available, the nickel color is sold out (it should be off the site within next few business days).

I have attached the images for the blue and crimson mirror lenses below. Please note that depending on the monitor resolution and color properties, the images might look slightly lighter/darker on your screen or the color might be little bit off. There is no image for the clear blue mirror lens. It is a clear lens covered with a a very light flash blue mirror coating. It is very light when you look through it. It looks like an almost clear lens with a light blue shine.

Thanks Liz, just placed the order, now for the wait...are they actually running 2-3 weeks as suggested or might I see them sooner?

Thanks!!

Hi, I found your order for Julbo prescription glasses. (Order # 1405076 Reference 944043). Most of the times the lab makes prescription glasses quicker. It usually depends on the lens color & upgrade and on the prescription. But I know that it always takes them extra time to work on mirrors. And since placed an order for polarized blue mirror lenses, I would say 2-3 weeks will be a good call.
