Not all sunglasses brands are designed to hold a prescription lens, and are sometimes called "non-RXable". "RXable" sunglasses are sunglass frames that can accept a prescription lens.

Sunglass frames with an excessive wrap design can only accommodate prescription lenses up to a power of approximately +/-5.00 sphere, but it really needs to be evaluated on a 'frame by frame' basis. Other factors such as possible astigmatism correction in the prescription can help to complicate the frame selection further. Often sunglass outlets (who do not have access to trained eyecare professionals) find it difficult to recommend a sunglass frame that would be suitable for fitting of prescription lenses.

It is not possible to put a prescription in sunglasses with a shield design. Some sunglass manufacturers like Maui Jim and Adidas have facilities to make prescription lenses for their own frames.

At South Melbourne optical you can be assured of receiving the very best advice in the selection of the your prescription sunglasses for your specific requirements.
