Grilamid Frame - Grilamid is a nylon compound that when heated and mold injected becomes the lightest, strongest plastic material available. Once Grilamid is formed it has the amazing attribute of being extremely flexible, but is able to maintain its original shape under all temperatures.
OHM Lens - Synthetic Melanin infused lenses protect your eyes with the equivalent of SPF 140 and block harmful UV and HEV blue light, relaxing your eyes and providing vivid, crisp, clear, haze free vision.
100% UV Protection - UV rays can be extremely harmful to your eyes. These damaging rays can accelerate your eyes aging process and these negative effects can be enhanced by surfaces like water and snow. Safeguard your eyes with 100% UV protection.
98% HEV Protection - High Energy Visible (HEV) light, or "blue light", is connected to brain signals for being awake/alert. These sunglasses are made with special "Blue Blocker" lenses that filter out HEV light. For nighttime screentime, this helps your brain prepare for restful sleep by mimicking nature and letting your brain send the proper signals for falling asleep quickly and enjoying a deep, restful sleep.
Hard Lens Coating - A double sided, high performance lens coating that reduces minor scratching.
Injected Polarized Filter - Without the use of glue, Polarized film is encapsulated by the lens eliminating glare with 99.99% efficiency, providing high color contrast and superior color definition.
6 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 6 base styles have a “flatter” look. 8-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
These measurements include the height of the frame, the width of the frame and the length of the arms in that order.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Fully polarized sunglasses reduce eye strain and help you see better around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
5 - 10% - A low VLT (Visual Light Transmitted) rating like this is perfect for sunny and bright lighting conditions.
VLT ratings range from 0 to about 90 percent with a lower number meaning less light passes through (darker tint); where as with a higher number - more light passes through (lighter tint).
