Revant Optics produces high quality replacement lenses for many big name sunglass makers.  A great way to show your style or breath new life into some old frames.

Introduction

From custom-colored drivers to putting your name on your golf balls, golf companies are offering an ever-increasing number of ways to show your own personal style.  Customization isn’t just about style, either, it’s often a way to improve performance.  At the intersection of style and performance is Revant Optics.  Revant makes replacement lenses for high-end sunglasses so you can get exactly the look and performance that you want.

Style

Having great frames is good, but without the right lenses, they’re like an untailored suit.  With Revant Optics and their rainbow of color options, you can have the right look for every occasion and outfit.  From bold, fiery reds to muted grays and browns, there is a lens here for every style.

Performance

I’ve been fortunate enough to wear and test sunglasses from numerous high-end manufacturers, and that’s made me fairly picky.  I feel like I can distinguish bad lenses from good and good from great.  All that said, I can tell you that I have no reservations about wearing Revant Optics lenses on the course.  In a direct apples to apples comparison between the black Revant lenses and the stock Oakley lenses, I couldn’t tell the difference in terms of clarity or glare reduction.

While having an array of lenses may seem extravagant, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a performance benefit to it.  Virtually every sunglass manufacturer talks about matching your lenses to the conditions, and you can see PGA Tour players doing this every week.  Though that may not be affordable through the OEMs, at Revant’s prices, it absolutely is.

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that these lenses snapped into and out of my Oakley Radarlock frames as easily as the stock lenses and stayed in place perfectly.

Choices

Revant makes lenses for Oakley, Ray Ban, Costa, Spy Optic, and Rudy Project sunglasses.  There are 106 different lens models available, the vast majority of them – 95 – being Oakley.  With three exceptions, every lens has at least 3 color options and some have as many as 31.  The bottom line: there are a lot of different options here.

Value

Here’s the real kicker: most of these lens cost between $32 and $36.  Some are as low as $24, and a few of the polarized Oakley lenses run as high as $52.  When you consider that replacement lenses from the original makers can easily exceed $100 – if they’re even available – Revant replacement lenses are a great value.

Conclusion

Whether you need new lenses or just want to shake up the look of some old frames, I’d strongly suggest giving Revant Optics a try.  Their lenses perform well, and, given their modest price, you can have a different color for every mood.

  1. Stumbled across Revant, while looking to replace my scratched Oakley lenses. Paid $20 for a replacement set via eBay. Only difference was that Oakley wanted $60 for them – and I paid the extra $ and got Polarized replacement lenses.
    Quality is top-notch, would definitely buy from them again (but, hoping I won’t need to).
