Opticus isn’t your typical sunglass company
Since 1978, Opticus has specialized in high altitude lenses for the outdoor enthusiast. By understanding the customer’s needs, Opticus can make the best product possible. Don’t take an unnecessary risk and settle for second best! Your glacier 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!
Opticus 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 also give you the clarity and performance of specially tuned lens filters. We offer two categories of lenses: Altitude, oriented toward extreme exposure, and Outdoor designed for optimum perception and protection during rapid movement.
We carry over 2 dozen styles of glacier glasses, from manufacturers like Julbo, Altice and a variety of others. Most models will have detachable sideshields, and adjustable nose pads and temples. You can choose your frame and lens type a la carte, to make a custom set of glacier glasses that has what you need.
Some prescriptions will require our special lens cutting technique called Routing. It is also often necessary to remove material from the back of a frame to accommodate a prescription fit. Routing is needed for medium to thick lenses that would otherwise prevent the installation of the lens, or interfere with the side shields attaching onto the frame. If needed, this process is $25.
