Multiple prescriptions can be added to your account, for example: Reading/Close-up, Intermediate (computer) or distance (driving). We will keep your prescription secure and confidential, always.
You can easily access your account to order new prescription glasses, sunglasses, or to update your prescription.
Your prescription can be entered manually into the prescription form during account creation or during checkout. All prescriptions must be validated with a photo of the current, non-expired prescription from your ophthalmologist or optometrist. If you do not have a copy of your prescription, please provide Cirrus Eyewear with the phone or fax number of the prescribing doctor.
Make sure that you also provide us with your PD or pupillary distance. This is usually provided by your optometrist, optician or ophthalmologist. If you don’t have this number, it is easy to measure, click Measuring your PD for instructions.

TIPS FOR SELECTING THE RIGHT SPORT PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR FOR YOUR CHILD
posted on November 30, 2016 by Liberty Sport
As more top athletes are seen wearing protective eye gear, those glasses, goggles and masks that kids used to hate have suddenly become cool. Not only do they tell the world they take playing seriously, they can also enhance performance. But even the best gear in the world won’t do any good if it’s not worn, so how do you ensure your young athlete will use the eyewear you’ve gone to the trouble and expense to provide it? It all comes down to fit and function.
Choose Impact Resistant Sports Eyewear
Not all sports eyewear is the same. Quality player-tested sports goggles and eyeglasses have high-impact nylon frames and polycarbonate lenses that meet ASTM F803 standards for impact resistance. Their molded padding provides grip, comfort, and long-lasting protection. Eyeglass temple material adds flex, grip, and comfort during play, and straps, bands, and venting on both frames and goggles keep our eyewear in place for maximum performance. Our advanced eyerim design accommodates a wide range of prescriptions or can be worn in non-prescription.
Eye injuries account for an estimated 100,000 doctor visits by children each year—most of them sports-related—and are the leading cause of blindness in children in the U.S. As many as 90% of those injuries could be prevented with protective eyewear so be sure to start with the impact rating of the frame by sport as a start to selecting the right protective eyewear.
Select the Best Gear for the Sport
Balls, racquets, sticks or any flying objects represent potential eye injury as well as hands and fingers to the face or the eye. But different activities present different hazards, so some sports call for different eyewear that others.
Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, Golf, Tennis, Track and Field and Bicycling
These are all low-risk for injury due to flying objects, but any outdoor activity carries the risk of long-term eyesight damage due to sunlight. Participants should wear performance sunglasses with polarized lenses that have anti-scratch and anti-fog coatings. If they like to crowd the net, goggles might be a better choice for your budding Wimbledonians. Skiers and snowboarders should choose ski goggles or wraparound sunglasses with polarized, mirror-coated lenses.
Baseball and Softball
These sports call for polarized sport sunglasses or goggles in the field and helmets with polycarbonate face shields for batting. Catchers can choose a traditional mesh or hockey-style facemask behind the plate.
Soccer, Basketball and Volleyball
A ball in the face can certainly hurt, but the larger risk to eyes in the sports is getting poked by another player. Wraparound sports goggles with vents and anti-fog, anti-scratch coatings are the best choices.
Handball, Racquetball, Squash and Badminton
Each of these sports involves a high-speed projectile that can do a lot of damage very quickly. With objects hurtling toward young eyes at up to 200 mph, vented sports goggles with anti-fog polycarbonate lenses are a must.
Hockey and Lacrosse
High-speed projectiles and flying sticks in these sports call for full-face protection. Lacrosse players need padded face masks, while hockey players need full-face helmets to protect against head injury. Goalies in both sports need full helmets and face masks.
Swimmers and divers have specialized goggles and masks appropriate to their sports, Water polo players and water skiers need polycarbonate goggles to protect against fingers and flying objects.
Football players should have polycarbonate face shields attached to their helmets. Paintball players need full-face helmets. Fencers have distinctive wire mesh masks. Boxers and most martial artists fight unprotected, so along with brain and other injuries, corneal abrasions and retinal detachment are risks. Regular eye exams are essential.
Fit the Gear to the Player
No matter how carefully you choose your child’s sports eyewear, they won’t wear it if it’s not comfortable. If the glasses or goggles slip around or don’t fit properly, the protection they give is compromised, if they even get worn at all. The same holds for eyewear they’ve outgrown.
Poor fit can affect performance, too. Peripheral vision can be compromised, and prescriptions can change. Check the fit of your child’s sports eyewear at the start of every season. Make sure they sit properly and any padding rests comfortably in place. Check that the eyes are centered in the lenses both vertically and horizontally. Crisp, clear vision is essential for good performance, too, so make sure prescriptions are up-to-date.
Optimal Lens Tints and Coatings for Active Play
Once you have the right frame and fit, lens tints and coatings are another important factor to consider on your polycarbonate lens. If you have a goggle fit in particular, be sure to get an anti-fog coating on the lens and anti-reflective coating with scratch hard coat to protect the lens and minimize glare during active wear.
If you are playing an outdoor sport, you may also want to consider a tint for UV protection or even a photochromic lens that will change from dark to light as needed based on the amount of sunlight.
Miraflex Eyewear is a signature line of Italian made, Flexible & Safe, plastic frames with no metal parts, making it the safest option for your child’s protective eyewear. With over 20 years providing quality eyewear, Miraflex glasses are all BPA Free, Latex Free & Hypo-Allergenic.
Miraflex frames offer an anatomically designed bridge that eliminates the need for nose pades and the inherent, associated risk. The elastic band wraps behind the head and assures that the frames stay seated properly on the face with tensors that take up any elastic slack.
Miraflex frames come in a countless number of combinations from which to choose: 15 styles, 6 models and 32 colors. These options ensure that you will find the perfect style and fit for you or your child’s face.
If there is a frame that you like on the Miraflex website and you can't locate it on the Cirrus Website, please send us an email request and we will work with you to find the right frame.

How often have you been sitting out by the pool in a lounge chair and trying to read your iphone and ipad only to realize that you can't see the screen with your sunglassses on? Notice that you can see the screen perfectly well with your regular glasses? The reason for this is most likely the fact that your sunglasses have polarized lenses. Polarized lenses are fantastic for glare protection, especially if that glare is coming off the water. Lenses that are polarized contain a special filter that blocks the intense reflected light reducing glare.
Most cell phones have a polarizing filter that helps to cut glare and reflections which makes the screen easier to see in bright sunlight. When your phone and sunglass filters are aligned in opposite directions, all the light from your screen is cut out so you can’t see anything. Fortunately, there is a simple solution, rotate your tablet or phone 90 degrees. It’s that simple!
