Skylet® sunglasses lenses

Compared to traditional sunglasses lenses, Skylet® displays higher transmission in the wavelength region where the eye is particularly sensitive (V λ = 555 nm). With the same level of light absorption as other lenses, Skylet® therefore appears to be subjectively brighter to the wearer. It will still provide your customers with a high level of protection against glare.

Skylet®: Sun protection with contrast enhancement

Skylet sun lenses have been specially designed for situations where greater protection against UV light and glare is necessary. They are also perfect for conditions where high levels of contrast is required.
