Silhouette adds sunglasses to its Vision Sensation programme

The initiative will be available across its prescription sunglasses range with grey, brown and green lenses

Silhouette eyewear

Silhouette has launched a new initiative to its Vision Sensation programme that will see the eyewear company’s sunglasses made available via its prescription lenses scheme.

The Silhouette Light Management initiative offers blue light protection up to 500mm, as well as glare-free, 100% UV and polarised protection.

Silhouette explained that by investing in this area, the company ensures it reduces the strain on the wearer’s eyes and provides the best possible visual protection throughout the day and at night.

Speaking to OT at 100% Optical, lens specialist at Silhouette UK, Alok Machchhar, said: “Silhouette’s passion for light and minimalistic frames is now available with our sunglasses and has been combined with comfortable lenses as well.”

The initiative will be available across its prescription sunglasses range with grey, brown and green lenses. Lenses will be produced alongside the frames at Silhouette’s in-house Lens Lab in Linz, Austria.

Silhouette’s Vision Sensation programme was launched in 2017 and is designed to offer frames and lenses from a single source provider.
