What are photochromic lenses?

Photochromic lenses are able to adjust their level of darkness based on the amount of UV light they’re exposed to. These will then lighten once back in a shady area.

How should I care for my sunglasses?

Keeping your sunglasses clean will help them, and you, look great and perform well. Always be sure to keep your sunglasses in a case or your free microfibre pouch to prevent damage. The best way to clean your sunglasses is by gently rubbing them with the microfibre pouch or a lens cleaning cloth. To avoid damage, never clean your sunglasses with paper towels or clothing, this can grind dust into the lenses and leave nasty scratches.

Should children wear sunglasses?

It is essential that children wear sunglasses. Children are at higher risk because they are in the sun so much more than adults, and their eyes are more sensitive. It is important to start protecting children’s eyes as early as possible as UV damage is cumulative over a person’s lifetime.

What does UV400 mean?

It means that the lenses are made to protect your eyes against UV rays up to 400 nanometers in wavelength.

What is the difference between polarized & UV400 lenses?

UV (Ultra Violet) lenses block the UV rays admitted from the sun from making direct contact with the eye. Polarized lenses not only block the UV rays but also have a unique coating that helps eliminate or reduce glare.
