Football Rugby Glasses Goggles:…
Now that the children are back to school and looking very smart in their new uniforms. Did you remember their protective glasses or goggles? Some children will be playing football at a more serious level and others may be playing contact rugby. Normal every day spectacles are just not up to the job, they are damn right dangerous. So what are the differences both the frame and the lenses are design to withstand impacts. The lenses are made from shatterproof material, the frame clamps the lenses in place so they don’t come out of the frame under impact. The frames are fitted with a retaining strap or band that holds them in place so they won’t move around whilst running or jumping around. Will they fit you child, well they come in 5 different sizes so yes, there will be a frame for you. Take a look at the range of frames available HERE

Andy North is one guy who never says no to a challenge. In 2015 Andy as part of the Ultra6 a team of 5 Yorkshire cyclists, achieved the first world record to cycle into space. Cyclists often talk about cycling the height of Everest, but Ultra6 have been to the final frontier! UK Eyewear was please to be involved in a small way by having provided the sports glasses for the event.
The famous Mont Ventoux was the setting, and Ultra6 rode it continuously to ascend 100,000ft and descend 100,000ft in the quickest possible time.

Pleased to say Big snowfalls in the Pyrenees earlier this week, and more still to come. Things will turn mostly sunny and dry in the European Alps over the weekend, but it is utter powder skiing in the Pyrenees right now. To add to the outstanding amounts of fresh snow already on the ground another meter is expected to arrive by Monday. Font Romeu is expected to get 60cm on Sunday, 20cm on Monday followed by a week of sunshine, dream conditions.

Will Oakley’s new Sunglasses help Team GB to GOLD ?
Bubba Watson will see plenty of green on the Olympics golf course in Rio de Janeiro. But it won’t be the same green the rest of us see. Filtered through specially tinted Oakley shades, Watson’s version will have heightened contrasts that accentuate some colors and downplay others. It’s a modified view of the playing field that he and a handful of other Olympians hope will ultimately help them see another color this August: gold.
Whether it’s clarifying the subtle undulations on the fairway or highlighting white lines on race track, Oakley says its new Green Fade sunglasses aim to give athletes an edge by filtering light and creating what is essentially an artificial color spectrum optimized for the sport they play.
And before you scoff at the idea of performance-enhancing sunglasses, there’s actually some actual science (and logic) behind Oakley’s tinting technology. “If sunglasses filter certain colors, then the eye’s response curves will be responding to the transmitted colors and not sensitive to the blocked colors,” says Steven Jacques, an optics researcher at Oregon Health & Science University. “In other words, the wavelengths observed are now ‘more defined.’”
Defining specific wavelengths can have benefits for some athletes. Just ask Kerri Walsh, who will be wearing Oakley’s Prizm field lens on the Copacabana sand in Rio. Walsh says the tinting technology enhances whites against blues and can help her track the volleyball against the sky. “Most competitions are in the middle of the day, and sun is a huge variable,” she says. “Seeing the ball as quick and clear as possible is a game changer.”
Filtering colors ultimately results in losing visual information, it can be a strategic sort of loss for athletes. “This could be an advantage if there were colors that were distracting,” says Jacques.
Lords of Light
Getting rid of or minimizing those distractions means fussing with the wavelengths in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Some of those wavelengths are shorter, like violet and blue, and some are longer, like orange and red. By using specific dyes in the polycarbonate they make lenses out of, Oakley engineers can alter transparency and opacity to specific wavelengths. To see the subtle nuances of a blue ocean, for instance, engineers might screen the greens.
Most Prizm lenses have three or four distinct peaks in their light transmission profile. Highlighting those peaks creates a gap on either side of a specific wavelength. According to Oakley, this tuning helps athletes pick up on nuances otherwise missed with the naked eye. Instead of washed out, dull, or flat landscapes, certain details and objects pop—like a baseball, for example. The Oakley field lens is supposed to make the white of a baseball to stand out against both a blue sky and a green field (colors also helpful for track athletes in Rio, who’ll wear them to help see painted lines). “It is very easy to dull white, but not as easy to make white even brighter,” says Wayne Chumbley, Oakley’s vision performance lab manager. “The only way is by dulling the surrounding colors.”
Now the only question is whether cool sunglasses can make you run faster.
