Randolph’s military origins has led to an outstanding focus on lasting a lifetime. Or two. Our dedication to the eyewear industry spans decades with countless adventurers enjoying our gear on their extraordinary journeys.

To match today’s adventurer, pilot and taste maker alike, we’ve developed proprietary lens technology and simplified our categories of lenses to give you an easier time choosing your sunglasses.

Not only does Randolph offer many colors to choose from, they come in a variety of jewelry-quality finishes, engineered through a handcrafted process. See the lens colors below for striking and stunning colors representing a range of seasons and light conditions to meet your visual needs.

Of course, not only are Randolph sunglasses beautifully designed, each batch of glass lenses is drop-tested with steel balls and wear-tested to ensure they meet the highest durability standard.

With so many options, we decided it was time to make it a little easier to choose your favorite new pair of Randolphs.

Randolph Lens Materials

SkyTec™ Glass

Our most popular lens material. Individually ground and polished to the exacting standards of a camera lens. The absolute clearest optics possible with maximum scratch-resistance.


Combining light-weight comfort with outstanding optics in an advanced lens material that is 40% lighter than our glass lenses.

SkyForce Air™ Gradient

A gradient finish is added to our SkyForce™ light-weight lenses: a darker tint at the top of the lens offers sun protection while the lighter bottom is perfect for reading or viewing up-close objects.

Lens Technology Features

Blue Wave™ Technology – With Blue Wave™ technology, each SkyTec™ lens reduces eye strain, improves sleep patterns and increases overall visual acuity. Our lenses protect your eyes from potentially harmful ‘blue’ and High Energy Visible (HEV) light, that can potentially cause macular degeneration and eye damage.

Vector™ Optical Coating –  This proprietary multi-layer coating is applied to each lens to block harmful reflected light and ‘bounce-back’ glare from entering your eye from behind. VECTOR™ reduces eye-strain and improves visual acuity with the added benefit of built-in hydrophobic, anti-static, and scratch-resistant properties.

100% UVA/UVB Protection – Our premium lenses act like sunblock for your eyes, blocking 100% of damaging UVA and UVB rays.

Infrared Ray (IR) Management – SkyTec™ Glass lenses provide additional protection from Infrared Rays (commonly known as Heat Radiation or heat Waves) that can potentially cause dry eye conditions or tired eyes.
