Hi, I'm FRED photochromic - your sunglasses with self-tinting lenses!

My photochromic lens (category 1-3) darkens all by itself when the sun is shining and brightens in darker surroundings and in poorer weather conditions. So my lens easily adapts to changing light conditions!

Thus, my photochromatic glasses offer optimal protection against UVA and UVB radiation. Another advantage is that your eyes are relieved and are significantly less exhausted after a bike tour or run, as they are ideally protected by the automatic adjustment to the light conditions.

Nothing has changed in my other features: As so-called Shield sunglasses - with a single continuous lens - and because of my retro look, I'm pretty popular right now.

My single lens not only looks casual, it also offers you an extra large field of vision. It also covers your eyes completely, which means they are well protected from the sun and also from the wind. Due to the frame curve, I lie comfortably on the head and my side edges are flush with your face. This also helps to protect your eyes from the sun and (driving) wind, which makes me the perfect date for your ski or bike tour or your run. You can enjoy a particularly high level of comfort thanks to my rubberized nose pads.

My frame is combined with a continuous polycarbonate lens with an anti-reflective coating.


Photochromic lens

Photochromatic sunglasses have a number of advantages that make them an attractive option for people who are regularly outdoors. Automatically adjusts to changing light conditions: Photochromatic sunglasses automatically adjust to changing light conditions, darkening in bright sunlight and brightening in weaker light. This allows them to improve comfort and visibility without having to remove the glasses and replace them with others. Protection from Harmful UV Light: Photochromatic sunglasses offer high protection against UV rays that can cause eye damage. Convenience: Since photochromic sunglasses automatically adjust to changing light conditions, there is no need to constantly put them on and take them off or carry separate glasses for different light conditions. General Usability: Since photochromic sunglasses automatically adjust to the light conditions, they are suitable for a variety of activities, such as cycling, running, hiking and much more.

How does a photochromic lens work?

Photochromic lenses are refined with molecules that react to changing light. The darkening of the pane is triggered by UV light. If the UV light decreases, the tint of the pane also decreases. It takes about one to one and a half minutes to darken the pane. The whitening process takes a little longer.

Shield Sunglasses

Due to the curve of the frame, our FRED fits comfortably and more closely to the head than other sports glasses. FRED is also flush with your face at the side edges. Your eyes are perfectly protected from wind, dirt and sunlight.

Polycarbonate lens

Polycarbonate sunglasses are particularly break-resistant. So if you drop your sunglasses, the lenses will not be damaged immediately. However, should the glass be destroyed in the worst case, there is no risk of injury because polycarbonate glasses do not splinter. Polycarbonate lenses can also be ground very thin, making them extremely light. The material also offers excellent UV protection. For this reason, sunglasses with polycarbonate lenses are perfect for lifestyle and sports glasses. It goes without saying that we use polycarbonate for the lenses of all POP EYES sunglasses.

anti-reflective coating

An anti-reflective coating is a layer applied to a surface to reduce the reflection of light. This is commonly used on eyeglass lenses, screens, camera lenses, and other optical devices to improve visibility and reduce glare and reflections. It should be noted that an anti-reflective coating cannot eliminate 100% of reflections. However, it can reflect light affecting visibility and affecting contrast and color accuracy.

UV protection

UV radiation is an invisible part of sunlight that can be harmful to the eyes. It is therefore important that sunglasses offer effective UV protection. A good pair of sunglasses should be able to block at least 99% of harmful UV rays to protect the eyes from long-term damage. Overall, it is important that sunglasses offer effective UV protection to protect the eyes from the harmful effects of solar radiation. All our sunglasses protect against UVA UVB rays.


"VLT" stands for "Visible Light Transmission" and refers to the percentage of visible light that passes through a pair of glasses. The lower the VLT value, the darker the glasses and the lower the amount of visible light. A high VLT rate is appropriate for bright days, while a low VLT rate is appropriate for overcast days or strong sunlight.

categorie 1-3


mirrored sunglass lens

Mirrored sunglasses are all the rage these days and come in a variety of different colors. Mirrored sunglasses have an additional reflective coating on the outside of the lens. The mirroring is applied in several layers. This structure results in trendy effects that create color gradients. In bright sunshine and strong reflections, the sunlight is reflected much better and your eyes are perfectly protected from the sun's UV rays.


FRED is super light and only weighs 30 g

rubberized nose pads

You can enjoy particularly high wearing comfort thanks to the rubberized nose pads. These are small pads on the bridge of the sunglass that rest on the wearer's nose and help hold the glasses in place and evenly distribute their weight.


FRED is produced in the south of Italy

Conclusion: thanks to the self-tinting lens, you only need one pair of glasses for different visibility conditions.
