It's a Vuarnet day today

Vuarnet was a booming brand name from the time it was first released in the 1970's and still is today due to the reputation of high quality make and style. Over the last couple years Vuarnet sunglasses were hard to come by in the United States.  Vuarnet is a product made in France and it had gone through several distributors in the last 7 or 8 years.  It has been completely out of the US the last few years.  Recently, Alain Mikli International acquired 75% of Vuarnet's parent company, Sporoptic Pouilloux in 2009 the Vuarnet line was updated. This year (2012) Vuarnet re-launched their eye wear collection and made the Vuarnet product once again available in the united states.  And they are here to stay.  Since Alain Mikli is not a US distributor but rather an owner, all the problems that the different distributors had (warranty issues, going in and out of the US, etc.) are gone.  The product will carry the high quality of the Alain Mikli brand along with great customer service.

Because Vuarnet is  a recent comeback brand for us here at A Sight For Sport Eyes we currently do not have the product up on our web page. To check out the 30 new styles divided into three segments- lifestyle vintage, dynamic (sports oriented) and extreme sports go to www.vuarnet.com

We can take phone and chat orders only right now.  Look for Vuarnet to launch online with our new website redesign sometime next month. To place an order now, give us a call at 888-223-2669.  (note some styles are currently still on backorder but any preorders will have the same discount)

Order in the month of April and receive 10% off your Vuarnet purchase. 


The Citilynx lens is an exclusive only to Vuarnet and is new to the collection. This lens was designed to offer visual comfort. The Citilynx lens is a category 3 protection mineral with high quality scratch coating plus heat and abrasion resistance. Interior anti-glare coating increases visual comfort and a two toned blue silver mirror coating reflects the rays of the sun from above and below.


Yes the Vuarnet line still remains prescription available. However, Alain Mikli (new owner) does not have the "Authentic" Vuarnet prescription program set up now. It is something they expect to add in the future. But we continue to use our local lab to make "Vuarnet like" lenses to replicate the lens as close as possible.  However, glass is only available in the PX-2000 and PX-3000 and Citilynx lens colors.  The Skilynx lens can be done in Trivex (same optical clarity, lighter weight, just not the scratch resistance of glass--but scratch coating can be added).

For more information about prescription Vuarnet give us a call at 888-223-2669 or reach us on our chat located on our web page.
