About Opticus

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!

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 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, 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 will require our special lens cutting technique called Routing. 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.
