Sunglass Lens Features
Polarized lenses have a special filter that reduces reflective light providing excellent glare reduction and minimizes color distortions - especially when on the water! Sunglasses with polarized lenses are great for all types of outdoor activites like fishing, boating, golfing, skiing, driving, and even relaxing on the beach!
AR-5 coating stands for Anti-Reflective 5 Layer Coating. This special lense coating reduces reflected glare from bouncing back into your line of vision. It eliminates all "ghost images" and reduces eye strain. AR-5 reduces the ammount of light that bounces off of your glasses, allowing you to see more clearly. Polarization eliminates the glare that bounces off other objects like the water or that giant fish you just caught! Both lense treatments work together to provide the best viewing conditions.
RI-PEL True Color Recognition is a protective hydrophobic coating that generates a permanent repellent seal allowing clear vision in all conditions. RI-PEL provides an easy to clean, scratch resistant finish that repels dirt, salt, oil, and dust alowing the lens to stay cleaner longer than ordinary sun lenses.
Types of Sunglass Lenses
Glass lenses are made with natural earth minerals for excellent color contrast. They are ultra-light weight and are chemically hardened to increase impact resistance. Glass provides premium visual clarity, high scratch resistance, and have an anti-reflective coating.
Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight, impact resistant, and provide 100% UV protection. They are polarized to cut water glare and have AR-5 True Color coating that reduces light reflection, sheds rain and ocean spray, and allows you to see colors accurately.
Prescription Polarized Lenses are available in all styles. Please contact us to place your order.
