The natural filters of our eyes do not offer sufficient protection from the sun’s rays. It has been scientifically proven that overexposure to UV rays causes vision problems, and in particular early cataracts. So even if you don’t need vision correction, you should protect your eyes from the sun’s damage!
SILAC is launching a new range of sunglasses without correction intended for all men and women who want to combine style and protection! Choosing SILAC for your sunglasses means choosing over 35 years of expertise in the field of optics (eyeglass frames and lenses). In fact, to create your sunglasses we have collaborated with the same manufacturers in charge of our reading glasses: eyeglasses in metal, acetate, polycarbonate or any other material, we know each of the producers and their speciality.
Sunglasses with or without correction?
Whatever your needs, with SILAC you have a pair of sunglasses for you, with or without correction, depending on your age and your needs (the correction is intended for those who are farsighted). Our reading sunglasses with correction are intended for those who are farsighted (as of 40 years of age) and are available in 12 dioptres! You’re sure to find what you need.
100% protection from UV rays
All our sunglass lenses have a category 3 protection rating (UV400), a level that guarantees 100% protection from UV (ultraviolet) rays.
The categories of sun protection:
And of course, Silac sunglasses satisfy the requirements of European standard EN ISO 12312-1:2013. Our high-quality lenses are inspected by Intertek, an international independent certification laboratory which is capable of testing thirty points for compliance with the requirements of these standards.
Style and strength for your sunglasses
Our sunglass models are unisex, and our frames are simultaneously original, attractive and durable. The frame is of polycarbonate, a material known for its strength and thermal resistance (and thus highly useful for sunglasses!). Our temples have all been tested in order to be free of nickel. And good news: all our glasses are also anti-scratch treated.
Our SOL POLAROID sunglasses even have mirrored polarised lenses that let you see colours and contrasts better. An attractive touch that’s also very trendy!
