Sunglasses are one of the most crucial pieces of fishing gear in an angler’s arsenal; sunglass choice is as important as selecting your rod and reel. So what are the best sunglasses for fishing?

Firstly, lens polarization and impact resistance in a fishing sunglass is a no-brainer. But choosing the optimal lens colour is not so simple. 

Different lens colours excel in different situations. Whether fishing in low light, bright light, wrestling a Giant Trevally offshore or tackling a Billabong Barra inshore, there is no single lens colour that suits all these fishing conditions. So to maintain optimal vision, you need to swap between several pairs of sunglasses hour-to-hour.

Despair not, there is one single sunglass lens solution for fishing. Transitions® Drivewear®.

Transitions Drivewear is the world’s only polarized photochromic lens that automatically changes to three colours. Packed with benefits, it is the ideal lens solution optimised for all conditions angers face from dark early mornings to glaring sun, from overcast conditions and fog to long afternoon shadows, from rain to the low light of dusk.

Transitions Drivewear seamlessly changes to three different colours; yellow/olive to copper to dark brown providing the optimal lens colour at the right time. The photochromic technology automatically darkens the lens tint in bright light and lightens the tint in low light. With 100% UV blockage, Transitions Drivewear is also polarized to block blinding glare and to help you see deeper into the water. 

Available in non-prescription and prescription, Transitions Drivewear lenses can be fitted into many sunglass frames or you can buy ready-made non-prescription sunglasses. Developed by ophthalmologists and optometrists in the US, Transitions Drivewear combines two global leading technologies: Transitions® photochromics and NuPolar® polarization.

Maximise your fishing success and get the edge with the SUPER VISION of Transitions Drivewear.


High efficiency polarizer cuts blinding glare reflected off water and allows you to see further and deeper into the water. Transitions Drivewear features world leading NuPolar polarization. Tests prove no other polarized lens comes close to NuPolar in overall performance^.

Yellow lens

The best low light lens ideal for sunrise, dusk, fog, haze and heavily overcast days. The light lens colour allows the maximum amount of light to reach your eye. Improves depth perception and details when looking into the water. Cuts water glare. In low light conditions Transitions Drivewear automatically lightens to a yellow/olive colour with a lens tint of 63%.

Copper lens

A good all-round lens colour for fishing in both freshwater and saltwater, except on bright days. Cuts most of the green and blue light for brighter and more vibrant vision. Copper increases contrast and depth perception for sharp vision when looking into water and at surroundings. Transitions Drivewear changes to a copper colour in the shade, in light overcast conditions and when driving. The tint darkens up to 75% tint.

Dark brown lens

An excellent colour for both freshwater and saltwater in bright light conditions. Protects against intense sunlight. Dark brown delivers true vibrant colours, enhanced contrast and depth perception. Provides excellent definition in saltwater fishing. Enables you to see in murky conditions when freshwater fishing. In bright sunlight, Transitions Drivewear changes to a dark brown colour with a tint of 90%.


Lens seamlessly adjusts its darkness; tint lightens in lower light conditions and tint darkens in bright light conditions. Ideal for the multiple light conditions occurring in any one day on the water. Transitions Drivewear is powered by the unequalled world leading Transitions photochromic technology fading to 63% in low light and darkening up to 90% in bright light.

Impact resistance

Resistant to impact so lenses will not shatter when dropped or if the wearer is hit in the face. Transitions Drivewear lenses are made from several impact resistant materials including Trilogy® Trivex® and polycarbonate.


Lightweight lenses are a must for maximum comfort. Transitions Drivewear are made out of lightweight Trilogy Trivex and polycarbonate material.


Protects lenses and enhances durability. Anti-scratch coating can be easily applied to Transitions Drivewear lenses when buying from your optometrist. Transitions Drivewear ready-made sunglasses in non-prescription come with anti-reflective coating.

100% UV blockage

The sun’s damaging rays are a risk to eye health. UV has been linked to cataract, skin cancers around the eye and pterygium (growth on the eye), so UV blockage is a must. Transitions Drivewear blocks 100% of UV rays.

Prescription & non-prescription

Transitions Drivewear is available in both prescription and non-prescription lenses. For prescription lenses in a wide variety of frames, see your optometrist. Ready-made non-prescription sunglasses are available from your optometrist. Non-prescription Transitions Drivewear lenses can also be fitted into many sunglass frames by an optometrist.

Quality High Transitions Drivewear lenses are manufactured by Younger Optics, a global leader in optical and ophthalmic lenses for more than 60 years. Developed with ophthalmologists and optometrists in the US, Transitions Drivewear combines two global leading technologies: Transitions photochromics and NuPolar polarization.
Mirror coating

A mirror coating applied to a tinted or polarized lens provides additional darkness to suit bright sunlight conditions, but the lens will likely be too dark for low light conditions. Transitions Drivewear does not need mirror coating because its photo-chromic function automatically adjusts tint darkness to suit current light conditions while its polarized function cuts blinding glare in all conditions.

^ NuPolar lenses perform better than competitive polarized lenses in many crucial tests: polarizing efficiency, heat stability,
   film adhesion and colour stability.
