About Opticus

Opticus isn’t your typical sunglass company

Since 1978, Opticus has specialized in prescriptions for the outdoor enthusiast. Don’t take an unnecessary risk and settle for second best! Your sport glasses are one of your most important pieces of equipment. If you’re going to reach your goal, you’ve got to see it clearly!

img-aboutOpticus has designed and tested technologically advanced lenses that offer the best in prescription sunwear. Our goal is to not only protect you from UV and IR radiation, but to give you the clarity and performance of specially tuned filters. We offer two categories of lenses: Altitude, for extreme exposure, and Outdoor for optimum perception and protection during rapid movement.

We carry over 2 dozen styles of glacier glasses, from manufacturers like Julbo, our own Altice and a variety of others. Most models will have detachable sideshields, some have adjustable temples and a few feature adjustable nose pads.  Choose your frame and lens type a la carte and make a custom set of  glasses that has everything you need.

Some prescriptions require our special technique called Routing. Routing is needed for lenses that interfere with side shield installation. In other cases, specific sport frames feature a groove designed for the insertion of  only wafer thin lenses.  To accommodate prescription insertion, a special Step Bevel must be applied to the lens edge.  We have invested in the necessary equipment to address these needs.  If necessary, the total cost for either or both processes is a $25 fee.
