Find-a-Filter

Aura Visual Concepts, Inc. provides protective and filtration eyewear for a variety of activities. These are:

  • Glassworking, including traditional glassblowing and kiln worked glass, lampworking soft glass and lampworking borosilicate glass
  • Metal working, including brazing and forge welding

We are changing the way you pick eyewear to an unbundled format, first, select your activity, then select the filter you want along with any options such as readers, single vision prescription, etc., finally select the frame you want. We hope this new format will make it easier for you to find and buy the correct eyewear for your needs.

We can also custom-fit our lenses into a frame that you supply. Whether you are wearing Oakley™, Bausch and Lomb®, or some other name brand of sunglasses, chances are pretty good we can fit our lenses into your frame. We do have some restrictions on the size of the frame and how the lenses are mounted, so it's always best to contact us via e-mail so we can properly discuss the frame you would like to use. Pictures are always helpful, but if you don't have a picture, send a link to the frame and we can take a look.

The filters shown on each activity page are our recommendations taken directly from our Filter Recommendations (found on our blog pages). We strongly suggest you review this information before selecting and purchasing your eyewear. You will also find additional technical information on our blog with these titles: Glass and Metal Workers Technical Information, and X-Ray Glass Technical Information.

To get started, please select an activity below, then the filter you'd like from the selection shown.
