The Exception™ offers a vast array of features all packed into a stylish cutting-edge design. The Exception™ is truly a design masterpiece that has incorporated all of Rudy Project's major technologies in one model - including the option to add Rx-ability using our patented optical inserts. RP Optics polycarbonate lenses can be put directly into the frame or ingeniously added to our flip-up mechanism that attaches to the frame - offering two vastly different functionalities and appearances. The Exception™ incorporates Quick Change™ interchangeable lens technology, adjustable Ergonose™ nose pads (to eliminate fogging) and adjustable Kynetium™ temples equipped with our T-Lock™ system for a customized, total comfort fit every time. Advanced lightweight Grilamid™ TR 90 frame material and geometric wrap technology means you won't even know you have them on! Adjustable nose pads and temples. Great for high prescriptions and contact lens wearers who want to change back and forth between sunglasses over contacts and prescription sunglasses.

RX insert. Maximum prescription range -10.00 to +8.00 total power (sphere plus cylinder). This is a piece that carries the prescription and snaps in behind the non-prescription Rudy Project lenses. This allows you to change out the front lens for various light conditions while only purchasing one pair of prescription lenses. This is the most economical way to go and is a good option for contact lens wearers who only need to occasionally insert the prescription adapter. Two sizes of adapter. Standard adapter comes with the frame (Eyesize: A: 50, B: 29) LX Adapter is for prescriptions above 6.00. (Eyesize: A: 47 B: 32)
Rudy Project Lens Information
Always at the peak of technology, our lenses provide optical clarity and physical protection for the eye. Perfect for all those who participate in sports.
Solar Radiation and Eye Care: Light is an electromagnetic ray characterized by its wave length and measured in nanometers (1 nm=1/1,000,000 of a mm). The ultraviolet rays (UVA, B and C) are the most dangerous rays for our eyes. Our lenses absorb all the ultraviolet rays: the residual transmission is less that 0.001% up to the 385nm (the wave length at which the visible spectrum begins). The lens receives an application of metal ions of chrome or silicon oxide, calculated in such a way as to provide a precise absorption factor.
Polarized: Polycarbonate lenses: Lightweight and more impact resistant than glass lenses. The polarizing film cuts through glare and harsh sun reflections, enabling wearers to see clearly in bright light conditions and minimize eye fatigue. Available in gray and brown, they transmit 22% of visible light. Perfect for surfers, anglers, boaters and sun-worshipers.
RP-D-Centered™: The optical axis is maintained parallel to the main axis of vision, permitting maximum utilization of lenses with extensive curvature (basis 6-8), respecting the need of optical quality and visual clarity.
