What is the difference between all the lens options?

Lens Technology:

  • Clear Lens
    • Environment: Indoor Pools and Dark Conditions (Low Light)
    • 100% UVA/UVB Protection
    • Ideal for low light and overcast conditions wehere maximum visibility is required.
    • Also ideal for consistent lighting as it provides accurate vision without filtering out color.
  • Dark Lens
    • Environment: Outdoor - Sunny - Bright Conditions (Bright Light)
    • 100% UVA/UVB Protection
    • Reduces light transmission to the eye
    • Reduces brightness and glare, making it ideal for conditions with high light levels.
  • Mirror Lens
    • Environment: Outdoor - Sunny - Bright Conditions (Bright Light)
    • 100% UVA/UVB Protection
    • The metalized coating is typically applied on top of a dark lens, resulting in maximum reduction of light transmission to the eye.
    • This lens reduces brightness and glare, making it ideal for conditions with high light levels.
  • Polarized Lens
    • Environment: Outdoor - Bright Conditions (Bright Light)
    • 100% UVA/UVB Protection
    • Polarized lenses offer improved color and depth perception by filtering out the sun's horizontal light rays to eliminate glare reflected off shiny surfaces, such as water, increasing contrast for a sharper and improved vision.
  • Blue Lens
    • Environment: Indoors and Moderate-Light Outdoor Conditions (Medium Light)
    • 100% UVA/UVB Protection
    • Allows a moderate level of light into the eye and provides some glare protection.
    • It's a practical color for changing conditions.
  • Amber Lens
    • Environment: All Conditions (Low to Bright Light)
    • 100% UVA/UVB Protection
    • Provides excellent vision in both high and low light environments.
    • In low level light (i.e. indoor swimming pool, overcast conditions) amber lenses amplify the light offering clearer vision.
    • In high light levels, it reduces glare.
