Mirrored Sunglasses & Mirrored Prescription Sunglasses

Mirrored sunglasses (also known as flash sunglasses) have been all the rage ever since Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer rocked their mirrored aviators back in “Top Gun." The classic silver mirrored look has always been on-trend, and now SportRx offers prescription mirrored sunglasses, women’s mirrored sunglasses, and mirrored aviator sunglasses in many fun, colorful options as well. Some people may think of them as “classics," but our mirrored polarized sunglasses have come a long way from Maverick and Iceman.


What are Mirrored Sunglasses?

Mirrored sunglasses are sunglasses with a reflective mirror coating (also called a flash coating). Just like a regular mirror, mirror lens sunglasses reflect light away from the eyes of the wearer. The mirror coating goes over an already tinted lens, so different color mirrored sunglasses won’t affect how colors look to you, it's actually the color of the tinted lens under the coating that determines how colors are affected. Regardless of whether you choose blue mirrored sunglasses or pink mirrored sunglasses; gold mirrored sunglasses or silver mirrored sunglasses, your decision won’t influence your color vision.

Do Mirrors Scratch Easily?

Unfortunately, although glass is naturally scratch resistant, the mirrored coatings applied to glass, as well as to most sunglass lenses, are not. And while sunglass manufacturers have created a variety of scratch-resistant coatings, so far it has been nearly impossible to successfully apply a scratch-resistant layer on top of the mirrored coating used on mirrored sunglasses. Usually, a scratch-resistant coating is applied first to the lenses, and then the mirror coating is applied over it. So while the mirrored part of your glasses may look scratched, the lenses should stay unscathed.

Mirrored vs. Polarized?

A lot of people get mirrored and polarized sunglasses confused with each other. And with good reason – they are very similar. Both offer great eye protection, but the main difference between the two types of lenses is how they block/filter sunlight. Polarized lenses reduce reflected light and glare from flat surfaces (such as water). Mirrored lenses reflect light away from your eyes. On bright days, mirrored sunglasses provide a darker view which is generally more comfortable, however on overcast days light will still be reflected away from your eyes, which can result in an overly-dark view of things. Because polarized sunglasses only cut out the reflected light, on darker days your view may seem more natural. Neither lens is necessarily better than the other, they just provide different types of protection for different light conditions on different days.

Can you get Mirrored and Polarized Sunglasses?

Yes! A mirrored coating can be applied to polarized lenses – so you can experience the best of both worlds.
