100% UV400 PROTECTION
All of our lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and harmful, high energy light to 400nm. These rays are a leading cause of cataracts, skin cancer and wrinkles around the eyes—all great reasons to block them out.
It really doesn't matter how many cutting-edge technologies are included in a lens, if it fogs up it's all for naught. RYDERS high-quality antiFOG will stave off condensation so you can enjoy all of the other benefits of the lens without the hazardous distraction of fog.
As the lens darkens, it boosts the most important tones, accelerating and improving recognition of some colours by 20%. Its unique chemistry dramatically enhances your perception of primary colours, providing faster colour recognition, more defined colours, and a vibrant, crystal clear view of the world around you.
HYDROPHOBIC + OLEOPHOBIC COATING
An altogether misleading name, this coating isn't nearly as scared of water as water is of the coating. In fact, water runs away at first contact, leaving clear lines of sight that are free from droplets and water marks. The Oleophobic characteristics repel dirt and grease, making the lenses very easy to clean.
Mirror coatings on the photochromic lenses of other brands reflect away much of the light that is needed to activate their photosensitive properties. The remarkable efficiency of the patented MLV Mirror allows the VARIA photochromic lens to perform at its full potential.
Developed over a period of 12 years, NXT is an Essilor Sun Solution proprietary performance polymer which was originally developed for fighter jet canopies and the windshields of military helicopters. When cast as a lens it provides extreme impact resistance and superior optics.
We apply a scratch-resistant coating to all of our lenses. Though this process makes the surface of the lens considerably harder than the base lens material, it’s impossible to make the lenses completely scratch proof (short of making them from diamonds) so please care for them properly as they may still scratch under certain conditions.
With its fast-acting, wide-range photochromic technology, the VARIA lens responds very quickly and reliably, no matter what the temperature. In addition, it actually changes the colour of the lenses throughout their range instead of simply getting lighter or darker. This allows them to shift from a tint that has advantages in the dark, to a different, more suitable tone when conditions are bright.
