We have a handy guide to show you how best to swap lenses. See here – How to change lenses.
There is no single answer to this question. Everyone’s eyes are different and what suits one person will not suit another. Our lens range comes in a large array of colours and you may need to experiment before you find the right ones for you.
The lens simulations on our site offer a guide to how the lens changes your vision in a particular scenario, but trying them out for yourself is the best way to find what is right for you.
It is likely that you will need more than one lens to cope with different light conditions, different coloured targets and backgrounds. All our sets and combinations of lens colours have been designed to cover the widest array of needs for your chosen sport or discipline.
We have a list of stockists that can let you try on our glasses. See here. If you would like to see our products stocked at a shop near you, send us an email and we will contact them. We will also be attending shoots and shows throughout the year. Or you can purchase the glasses from us directly and if you are not happy with your purchase contact us within 14 days of receipt and we will do our best to assist you.
We don’t offer a 1 lens set but arms and lenses can be brought individually. We don’t recommend doing it this way as the sets offer much better value and come with accessories such as the hard case, cleaning cloth, cloth bag, anti fog spray.
At this time our lenses do not feature anti fog coating as standard. Our new lenses have been designed with an inbuilt ventilation bar to increase airflow, minimise fogging and eliminate lens smudging. Should you have an issue with fogging, anti fog cloths are included in each set and available to purchase under the accessories section.
Yes, all our lenses have scratch resistant hard coating to both sides of the lens. However, they can still become damaged if misused so we recommend you take care of your lenses and keep them in a pouch or case when not in use.
The new 2RX lenses are thicker than the original model and comply with EN166F European standards for safety eye-wear. The shatter-proof polycarbonate material does not crack or break under pressure.
However if your lens is subjected to extreme temperatures this can have a detrimental affect to the lens quality. In the UK and most parts of the world this is not a problem, however in extreme climates where temperatures can reach 40+°C we recommend not exposing your lenses to a long duration of extreme heat, such as in a hot vehicle. If you do encounter an issue with a lens, please contact email@example.com and we will do our best to assist you.
Ensure your glasses are not exposed to extreme heat, such as being left in a car on a hot day. Doing so can damage the lenses and magnets.
The microfibre cleaning cloth provided should be sufficient to clean lenses, however any glasses cleaner can be used on our lens and it will not affect the performance of the lens.
Polarisation is not an option currently available on the type of lens we use due to the high base curve and one piece wrap around mask lens.
Yes all our lenses including the clear lens are UV400 which means they block between 99.5-100% of all UVA/UVB radiation.
VLT stands for visual light transmission – the percentage reflects the amount of light that shows through the lens. The higher the VLT percentage, the lighter the lens tint will be (for example, a 11% VLT will be darker than a 14% VLT). Lenses with a lower VLT percentage will have a darker tint and will block more light from coming through to the eye.
We only offer one size at this time and in general it provides a comfortable fit on all sizes of faces from youths to adults. However, we appreciate every face is unique and should you find the fit is not right for you then you can return the glasses within 14 days of purchase.
The distance between the temples (the front of the arms) is 140mm. Its worth noting that the arms and the lens can flex much further to accommodate wider fittings.
All our lenses are base curve 7. This is one curve level higher than our original model and will help to wrap around your face better, providing a larger area of cover.

We stand by the quality of our products. All X Sight Sport glasses, lenses and RX frames are warranted against manufacturing defects for a full year. Apparel, accessories, and other non-eyewear goods are not covered by the warranty. If your X Sight glasses have a manufacturer defect, we will, of course, repair or replace them for you.
If you have lost or broken your arms, replacements can be purchased directly through our website.
The original model has been discontinued. Lenses and nose pads are still available through our store until stock runs out. No arms or cases are available to purchase.
We’ve done everything we can to bring a prescription option to the model without compromising on the core features of the glasses. The best way to do this was to create an RX insert which sits behind the wrap around lens.
We have designed the RX insert in collaboration with our expert optical manufacturer and tested it’s limits with specialised optometrists to achieve the best results possible but unlike your normal prescription glasses, there are some limiting factors which need to be considered when filing an RX insert for use with specialised shooting glasses like ours.
At the moment we do not provide a prescription filling service, however any competent optician should be able to advise on the suitability of the RX insert for your prescription and fill the frame with your desired prescription. You should seek advice from your local optician about the suitability of your prescription for wrap around RX inserts before purchasing an RX insert, or contact a specialist Optometrist.
Further guidance on the RX insert can be found on our RX insert page. We highly recommend you read it fully.
