- ChromaPop lenses are the most advanced polarized lenses in the world and allow you to see true colors more quickly to maximize your visual experience. By blocking color wave intersections as they pass through the lens, ChromaPop is able to eliminate color confusion, enabling you to see the outside world with an unparalleled level of vibrancy.
- Engineered to be the most impact resistant lens material in the world. Carbonic TLT lenses are optically corrected to maximize visual clarity and object definition.
- Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively-curved lens causing it to bend or distort an objects true size or position. Imagine looking through a fish eye lens. What your eye normally sees, is stretched beyond reality. Tapered Lens Technology corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center towards the outer edges. Light waves are thereby delivered straight to your eye resulting in zero distortion and true optical clarity. What you see is what you get.
4 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 4 base styles have a “flatter” look. 6-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
eVolve Material - For more than 40 years Smith has been a steward of the outdoors. Great days in the water, dirt, and snow are made better when we protect the environment as well. By utilizing a new material called Rilsan Clear, they are creating lightweight, durable, and fully transparent sunglass frames that are over 53% bio-based.
Hydrophilic Megol Nose Pad - Placed at the nose and on the temple tips, this material gently grips your skin to help keep your frame in place. The gripping power increases when introduced to moisture.
Smith Polarization - Smith precisely aligns the polarized visual layer inside the lenses to filter out 99.9% of this “visual static” for a finely tuned, glare-free view of the action.
Hydroleophobic Coating - This coating repels moisture, grease and grime. A barrier between your lenses and the world. Water will bead up and dispense without streaking. Smudges from fingerprints are wiped clean easily.
Anti-Reflective Coating - Vacuum applied Anti-Reflective (A/R) coatings on the back side of the lens will eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections.
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.
