With the summer’s warmth rapidly fading our thoughts turn to winter sun and fun on the slopes.

Across Europe the optical retail sector is gearing itself for the second largest selling window of the year with category 4 sun wraps and goggles making their way to front of house.

In the UK however our thoughts normally turn to the quietest two month of the year when perhaps the opportunity of winter sales is larger than we think.

With around 75 Ski slopes in the UK split between dry, real snow and winter resorts the UK ski population has grown by double figures over the last years. Although the official data puts the UK ski population at around 1 million and recent work by ABTA - based on people planning winter holidays, and the percentage of these planning in particular ski or boarding holidays - put the figure at nearer 2 million!

We at Lenstec believe that our new line of Julbo sunglasses offer great quality and protection and are an ideal higher-end product offer for all the family including toddlers with Cat 4 protection in both wrap sunglasses (with lateral protection) and ski/board goggles in either solid tint or NXT Trivex photochromic Cat 2-4 technology. A large number of these dedicated Ski sunglasses come with either direct or indirect Rx options.

With Julbo’s heritage in the design, creation and manufacturing of extreme condition eyewear in the Mountains of the Jura. We are confident that your patients can get what they are looking for and maybe the Ski 2016-17 will give you a new opportunity to end/ start the year on a high!
