Best polycarbonate lenses

Polycarbonate Lens: are the right lens for me?

According to All About Vision, when eye safety is a concern, polycarbonate or Trivex lenses usually are the best choice for your eyeglasses, sunglasses and sports eyewear.

Polycarbonate lenses are high-tech thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses. They also offer 100 percent protection from the sun's harmful UV light and are up to 10 times more impact-resistant than plastic or glass lenses.

Polycarbonate was developed in the 1970s for aerospace applications, and is currently used for the helmet visors of astronauts and for space shuttle windshields. Eyeglass lenses made of polycarbonate were introduced in the early 1980s in response to a demand for lightweight, impact-resistant lenses.

Since then, polycarbonate lenses have become the standard for safety glasses, sports goggles and children's eyewear. Because they are less likely to fracture than regular plastic lenses, polycarbonate lenses also are a good choice for rimless eyewear designs where the lenses are attached to the frame components with drill mountings.

Polarization

Not just a trendy mirrored frame, polarization actually has another job other than to look cool.  You know when a location is so bright it makes you squint and eyes water?Think snow, sand, etc. Glasses of NASA Technology through REVO Coating provides 99% polarization to stop that, so your eyes are more comfortable by using PULSE and you can see better
 

What are UV rays? Ultraviolet (UV) rays are high-energy, invisible light rays. UV light is broken into three different types: UVA, UVB and UVC.

  • UVA has longer wavelengths and passes through glass easily; experts disagree about whether or not UVA damages the eyes.
  • UVB rays are the most dangerous, making sunglasses and sunscreen a must; they don't go through glass.
  • UVC rays do not reach the Earth because its atmosphere blocks them.
