Lens & Frame Technology



1.What does "polarised" mean?

Polarised lenses fight glare by minimizing the passage of undesirable light to the eye. The result is sharper vision, more vivid color and greater depth perception.

Polarised lenses are designed to reduce reflected glare off horizontal surfaces, such as water, roads, snow, windshields etc. This is accomplished by only allowing certain light wave vibrations (glare-free light) to pass through the lens. Polarised lenses enhance depth perception and colour vibrancy.

2.What does "photochromatic" mean?

Photochromatic lenses darken with UV exposure, adjusting to a variety of light conditions.

3.What are anti-reflective lenses?

Anti-reflective lenses reduce distracting reflections that can bounce off the back of the lens into the eye.

Anti-reflection is a treatment designed to reduce reflections on lens surfaces by absorbing the light to enhance visual acuity. On the back of the lens, they prevent sunlight from coming in from behind and reflecting off the back of the lens into the eyes.

4.What are the benefits of gradient lenses?

Gradient lenses fade from a darker tint to a lighter tint, allowing for comfortable vision over a wide range of distance and lighting conditions.

5.Why might I want interchangeable lenses?

Frames that have interchangeable lenses let you swap out lenses for different fashion looks or for performances requirements.

6.What are the benefits of mirrored lenses?

Mirrored lenses have reflective coating that reduces the amount of light passing through to the eye.

Mirrored lenses have a thin metallic treatment (silver dioxide) applied to a sunglass lens to create the mirrored look. The mirror coating reflects more light from the front surface of the lens, which improves the reduction of visible glare.

7.How do I find my frame size?

To find your frame size, measure your features according to this guide:

Eye Size:
Measured from outermost edges of lenses horizontally.
Approx. 40mil - 62mil

Bridge Size:
The distance between lenses.
Approx. 14mil - 24mil

Temple Size:
Length of the temple piece - also known as the arm piece or earpiece.
Approx. 120mil - 150mil

8.What difference do lens colors make?

All colors absorb light differently. Lens colors determine which parts of the light spectrum pass through the lens to your eye.

  • Gray or "smoked" lenses protect eyes from dangerous ultraviolet radiation without distorting colours. They reduce glare and absorb the same quality of light at any wavelength, which makes them good for driving, prolonged wear and general use. Neutral shade for true perception with the least colour distortion. Colours are seen in their natural state relative to one another because colours pass through evenly. Maintains normal depth perception.
  • Good for bright sunny days

  • Brown lenses are good for general use. Like yellow lenses, they filter out a large proportion of blue light, but they offer greater clarity and contrast, and help you maintain optimal vision even in irregular light.
  • Good for golf, cycling or shooting

  • Yellow lenses filter out near-UV blue light while allowing a larger percentage of other frequencies through. Since blue light creates glare, these lenses make everything really bright and sharp. Just don't use them for anything that requires accurate colour perception. With yellow lenses, colours are very distorted.
  • Good for rainy conditions, shooters and night time use

  • Green lenses offer the highest contrast and greatest visual acuity of any tint. They also filter some blue light and reduce glare. This filter is recommended for prolonged use in extreme conditions.
  • Good for general use

  • Purple and rose lenses offer the best contrast for object against a green or blue background, making them ideal for water sports.
  • Good for high speed activities like snow sports and water sports

  • Blue lenses are a cosmetic tint that enhances contrast.
  • Good for increased colour contrast
