Got a question?
Our Original lens is a Category 3 tinted lens while our Boulevard, Spectachrome and Tropic High collections feature a Category 2 tinted lens. All lenses offer full UVA and UVB protection, and block 100% of harmful rays.
Our sunglasses aren’t polarised. The reason for this is that our perfect lens tint is not possible with the addition of polarisation filters.
Our lens provides a clear and balanced view filled with depth, which makes Tens very comfortable to wear whilst driving and participating in sports.
We have spent years working with our suppliers to create a perfect, sense-heightening tint. Custom designed and dip-dyed, the rich red-amber tones of Tens Original lens is designed to add warmth and natural colour definition in high-mid and low-light conditions and tonal environments.
New for 2020:
Our Boulevard collection features a magenta and violet-blue lens offering balanced and textured light definition in a variety of conditions from full Californian midday sun to soft tropical sunsets.
Spectachrome returns delivering a mesmerising colour shift, combining rich emerald greens and accentuated citron tones. A view that transports the user to a whimsical world of vintage and celluloid film.
Tropic High delivers a nostalgia inducing and uplifting lens tint, featuring rich golden tones and a seamless blend into a mood enhancing viridescent. Escape to a poolside paradise no matter your surroundings.
To our knowledge, there are no other sunglasses available on the market that will offer you as pleasurable a view as Tens.
Designed in Scotland and developed with our dedicated friends and supply partners in France, Italy and Hong Kong our frames are made from plant-based acetates sourced through selected suppliers including Italy's Mazzucchelli.
