Drivewear’s Revolutionary Lens Technology
Drivewear combines the best features of polarized and photochromic lenses. This optical gear contains light-sensitive molecules engineered to react and adapt to changing light and dark conditions. This revolutionary lens technology has three carefully synthesized settings that it automatically shuffles between depending on the amount of light in your visual field.
Low Light (Overcast): Your eye doctor explains that Drivewear assumes a “resting” phase when you are in low-lit places or in gloomy weather. The lenses assume a yellow or green tint to allow maximum entry of visible light, while still providing optimum protection from glare and ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
Bright Light (Driving): Drivewear lenses can also control light intensity. They are designed to cut down glare, ensuring your visual safety and comfort, especially when you’re driving. They shift to a copper shade to effortlessly highlight the greens and reds in your field of vision, which is helpful when there’s glare directed behind your windshield.
Intense Light (Outdoor): On bright, sunny days, the sun can overwhelm your eyes. Under such circumstances, Drivewear will adopt a dark, reddish-brown tint. This way, your eyes are protected from bright light and glare, letting you see clearly.
Why Choose Drivewear?
With Drivewear, not only can you enjoy sharp vision, you’ll also have maximum protection for your eyes. During your eye exam, we will measure your current visual acuity before upgrading your prescription to Drivewear lenses. Each color transition is carefully designed and structured to safeguard your eyes from harmful glare and solar rays. This lens innovation ensures flawless visual clarity in all conditions.
