Our Range of Sunglasses
We stock an eclectic range of sunglasses here in our Chelsea store, offering frames that are designed and handcrafted by artisan makers in small batches from around the globe. We are usually the first opticians to stock their collections and frequently the only stockist in London. We don’t stock any sunglasses by designers that simply put their logo on mass-produced frames. Our frames are all of the highest quality, all made in materials that last, keep their colour and can be adjusted to fit perfectly and comfortably.
Our sunglasses can be made to your prescription and fitted with a wide range of coloured lenses, from mirrored to clear. We can also fit sunglass lenses to almost all of our optical frames, glazing them here on site to ensure they fit that particular frame perfectly.
As well as making your vision more comfortable in the sun, sunglasses protect your eyes from UV damage. We can fit the sunglass frames of your choice with a wide range of lenses from the best manufacturers of lenses including Zeiss and Nikon. There are a number of different types of sun lenses we can fit including polarised, tinted and mirrored all with different benefits and looks.
Polarised lenses are able to offer maximum protection against glare and UV light and are particularly useful for winter sports.
We offer a wide selection of tinted lenses, whether you are looking for full or gradient colour. Tints can be applied to most lenses, whatever your prescription and offer practical and stylish protection from harmful UV rays. Sunglasses with a CE mark show that they are made to an agreed European standard. There is also a British standard for sunglasses which should be looked for when purchasing (British Standard BS EN ISO 12312-1). We only stock sunglasses that adhere to these rigorous safely standards.
Sunglasses are a wardrobe staple throughout the year. Here at Auerbach & Steele, we actively seek artisan makers who only make optical and sunglass frames. Our team of highly qualified dispensing opticians are on hand to advise on lenses and can talk you through the frames we stock here in our sunglasses shop in Chelsea.
