How we got started....

2020 NEWS

We have been working in the private Optical industry for years, in addition to trying to keep (in)sane at weekends by racing multisport challenges from swimming in murky ponds to finishing Ironman.

We opened up our small online shop to provide sports eyewear (and other necessary items) because when it comes to eyes we are really, really knowledgable and when you mix eyewear and triathlon, things can get a bit tricky (especially in transition!) so, we figured, that if we made the tricky stuff easy the rest should be whatever you make it!

Our experience is your experience, which means, we wear and test (maybe sometimes destroy!?) all of our products so that when you get them, you can be safe in the knowledge that they will work as hard as you do!

You have trained your body and focussed your mind, now let us add the final functional (and visual) pieces.

Choose well and wisely, if you need our help, let us know!

Prescription Eyewear - What you need to know

At 2020 Triathlon we are serious when it comes to eyes, so here we go......

We are qualified and registered with the General Optical Council in the UK.
In simple terms...

We will only supply prescription eyewear to customers who provide an up to date prescription from a registered optical practitioner. You can email a scanned copy of your prescription to us and we may ask for the original or speak to the registered issuer

Still keeping it simple...

To keep things easy and straightforward, we will supply the prescription lenses for your chosen eyewear, the lenses will be toughened ophthalmic grade material with a hard protective coating and anti-glare coating as standard, these options are included in the price, so there is nothing to 'add-on'.
If you want an alternative, of course, we will try to accommodate you, just email us here.
