Cocoons is the leading brand of optical quality polarised sunglasses designed specifically to be worn over prescription eyewear.

Fit almost everyone

Designed to fit comfortably and securely over 99.5% of all prescription eyewear frames, the patented OveRx designs are engineered to deliver unparalleled protection from damaging UV light and harsh glare.

Offers unparalleled sun protection

The integrated brow and underside protection of Cocoons sunglasses eliminates reflected light from the peripheral, from above and below. Injected polycarbonate side shields also block peripheral light without compromising the wearer's range of vision. The result is a collection of frame styles that delivers 40% more protection than conventional sunglasses.

Polaré lens

Polaré lenses are optically correct, meaning there is no visible distortion. It is extremely important when wearing sunglass lenses over prescription eyewear that the lenses are distortion free. Polaré lenses are scratch resistant and deliver 100% UVA and B protection. Polaré lenses exceed ANSI Z80.1 safety standards, the Australian sunglass standards and all FDA impact resistance standards. They are available in four different lens colours.


This is a neutral tint that delivers natural colour definition and contrast. Ideal for everyday use in bright light conditions where enhanced contrast is not required. Grey features 15% light transmission.


Amber is effective at absorbing most blue light waves which sharpens visual acuity, improving depth perception and contrast in variable light conditions. Amber is popular for fishing, driving and general use. Amber features 14% light transmission.


A general-purpose tint that heightens depth perception and object definition by effectively filtering scattered blue light to improve contrast. Ideal for skiing, fishing and all flat light conditions. Copper features 16% light transmission.


A long-time standard in ski and shooting sports, yellow provides excellent depth perception and dramatic contrast in low light. Yellow features 27% light transmission.
