Technically advanced sports and sunglasses with or without prescription

Sunglasses and Sports Eyewear

Newby & Padley stock many of the world's leading brands of sunglasses.

So whether you want the designer look of Bvlgari, Versace or Tiffany or the iconic styling of Rayban we have a pair to suit you. Many can be glazed with your prescription lenses and all have superior optical quality UV blocking lenses.

We can now supply genuine Rayban branded lenses to Rayban frames.

We also stock sports brands like Oakley and Adidas eyewear. Designed to stay on during sport with lenses that are impact resistant , they often have lenses that are 'colour tuned' to give the best vision in a particular sporting environment. Oakley prizm lenses have been developed to give a visual advantage for golf, cycling, snow sports and angling.

See what Oakley prizm golf lenses can do for your game in this short video and their promotional video for other sports.

We have visual solutions for all kinds of sporting and recreational activities. From the serious diver to the holiday swimmer, from the cyclist to the target shooter we have eyewear to give the competitive edge and to provide vital protection. We supply prescription safety eyewear for industry or the workshop and sports protective eyewear for both adults and children. Children's prescription swimming goggles start from around £40.

Why do I need UV blocking lenses?

Protection from UV Rays is essential. We all take care to put sun block on our face and body, but sometimes fail to give the correct protection to our eyes. UV is an invisible form of radiation and the damage to eyes can build up over time. There are 3 types of UV radiation:

  • UVA low energy and but most penetrative to the eye. Exposure to UVA can cause cataract and macular degeneration.
  • UVB higher energy. This is the same UV that causes sunburn and over exposure to the eye can cause pingueculae, pterygia and snowblindness.
  • UVC this layer is the strongest form of UV. Fortunately the ozone layer blocks almost all UVC.


Oakley Jawbreaker frames can be supplied with prescription lenses.

Skiing and Snowboarding

We can supply an optical insert to fit your own favourite ski mask or supply a complete mask with an insert. Coupled with an Oakley prizm snow ski mask, this makes a fantastic combination.

See what Oakley Prizm can do for your skiing in this short video.

Shooting - Clays and Rifle

We can supply spectacles for clay pigeon shooting with tinted lenses to enhance performance. One of the best ways to do this is with an optical insert so the tinted lens can be interchanged.

If you are a rifle or pistol shooter we suggest you try a frame at your local club and then bring it in to us and have your prescription fitted.

Do you remember the snooker glasses worn by Dennis Taylor in 1985 when he won the snooker world championship? We can supply something similar. The sides of the frame are hinged to allow the front of the frame to be tilted so the eye looks through the lens at the optimum angle.

While getting hit with a cricket ball may fracture your skull, a squash ball fits eye sockets and causes maximum ocular damage.

Whether you need prescription or not protection should be worn. We can advise on the best protection for you.

These have impact resistant polycarbonate lenses fitted for ultimate protection. The frames are tough and flexible and often have a special lens bevel to stop impacts from pushing the lens out.
