We are proud to announce our very own brand of prescription sport sunglasses! This line of eyewear was designed by our opticians who put their heads together – and applied their 100+ combined years of experience in the optics industry – to come up with a line of affordable prescription sunglasses that we would wear ourselves: Summit™ by SportRx.
With the Summit line, you are getting high-quality, inexpensive prescription sunglasses, complete with durable, polycarbonate lenses that are 100% UV protective, scratch-resistant, and tinted to your specific sport conditions. Each frame from Summit is specifically designed to be Rx-friendly. We stand behind the Summit line 100%, and to prove it, we put our name and logo on it!
The Summit Story
San Diego is home to some great hiking, mountain biking, and cycling. On weekends and lunch breaks, the SportRx Crew is out there taking on the many summits our hometown has to offer. So what better name to give our very own line of performance eyewear than Summit? Each model is named after our favorite summits, beginning with Torrey and Soledad:
Torrey Pines State Reserve is one of San Diego’s most prized hiking and cycling destinations. Its cliff-side trails offer stunning picturesque views of the California coastline and the renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course. The top of Torrey is 9.2 miles away from the SportRx headquarters. In a 90-minute lunch break, we can bike to Torrey, climb up and down the mountain, and be back at our desks – showered, polished, and ready to make some shades.
Mt. Soledad is one of San Diego’s most prominent landmarks. Standing 823 ft. tall, Soledad’s summit grants a spectacular, panoramic view of Mission Bay, La Jolla Shores, and the city’s downtown high rises. A bike ride from the front doors of SportRx to the peak of Mt. Soledad is 4.5 miles, and there are five main routes we can take up the mountain. When we’re feeling ambitious, we take the Via Capri route, which includes an 18% incline section. Upon reaching its summit, visitors of Mt. Soledad can find a serene Veterans Memorial that resides at the top.
Summit™ performance eyewear has a 2-year warranty against manufacturer defects. But here’s the deal: If your Chihuahua chews up the temple, or you crash your bike wearing them, or your baby does a no-no on them, or your mother-in-law sits on them in the car, give us a call. You’ll be surprised how well we’ll take care of you.
If you have any questions about the Summit Line, or prescription eyewear in general, don’t hesitate to hit us up for advice from a friendly SportRx optician.
