If you’re looking for a set of quality polarised sunglasses specifically designed with boaters in mind, then look no further than Tonic Polarised Eyewear. The brainchild of optical industry stalwart, Doug Phillips, the Tonic brand is the result of thousands of hours of research and development, which has resulted in the clearest, lightest and most optically correct polarised sunglasses on the market today. Tonic is the only sunglass manufacturer in Australia using Crown Corning Glass, the clearest glass lens currently available in the world. Combine that with a unique light filtration system, and you have a lens that delivers unsurpassed clarity and colour enhancement. Tonic’s Gen2 SLICELENS is the thinnest polarised lens on the market at only 1.7mm thick and is 35% lighter than comparable products in the market, allowing them to be worn all day without fatigue. All Tonic lenses are decentred, which eliminates the prism effect and offers precise depth of field and distance vision. An anti-reflective coating is another important feature of all Tonic lenses. Applied to the back surface of the lens, this coating prevents reflective bounce back, which is very important if navigating a boat in super bright conditions. Tonic’s range is extensive with frame styles to suit all head shapes for both males and females. Lenses include the popular blue mirror and green mirror as well as the industry leading Photochromic copper or grey glass lenses. For more information visit
