How It All Began

The Sunglass Fix is an award-winning sustainable business and a pioneer and global leader in replacement sunglass lenses.
Based just outside Byron Bay, Australia, we have hundreds of thousands of customers across 161 countries.
Founded in Australia in 2006
Just over a decade ago, Craig Anderson opened a drawer to find a couple of pairs of scratched sunglasses. His natural desire to fix things rather than throw them away - especially quality things - got the better of him.
In his quest for answers, he uncovered two surprising truths. Firstly, it was either nearly impossible, or extremely expensive, to find replacement sunglass lenses. Secondly, one billion pairs of sunglasses are purchased each year, leading to a lot ending up in landfill!
With a lifelong hankering to fulfil a dream of establishing his own sustainable business, and motivated by a great idea, Craig decided to take the leap. He left his corporate IT career and The Sunglass Fix was born. That was in 2006.
The vision then, as it is now, was to create a one-stop-global-shop with the most extensive range of sunglass lenses possible ensuring that "there's a solution for everyone".
By offering extremely high quality replacement lenses for people to install themselves, Craig was convinced The Sunglass Fix would be a sustainable business that would help people save money – and the planet. With your help he’s been right.
Today, The Sunglass Fix is an award-winning sustainable business recognised as a pioneer and global leader in the replacement sunglass lens market. Based just outside the surfing mecca of Byron Bay, Australia, They’ve made lenses for hundreds of thousands of customers across 161 countries.
We’ve developed over 130,000 replacement lens & model combinations ready for immediate dispatch anywhere in the world. True to our original vision, our team can custom make and install lenses in just about any pair of sunglasses - as long as they have two separate lenses.
What inspires us most, beyond our happy customers, is the knowledge we're doing our bit to help our planet. We take our commitment to corporate social responsibility and having a sustainable business model seriously. When customers keep the same frames (looking like new) over many years, waste is reduced. At the same time, we’re offering exceptional value sunglass lenses that, in virtually every case, exceed the original manufacturer's quality.
It has taken our team years of research and development to refine our lenses to the point that they've become industry-changing solutions for sunglass wearers. And we got there, thanks to your constant support.
