See True Colors With ChromaPop Lenses

In August 2013, Smith Optics introduced ChromaPop, the worlds most scientifically advanced polarized lens. In March 2014, Smith introduces two new ChromaPop lenses specifically engineered for the avid waterman: ChromaPop Polarized Blue Mirror Lens and ChromaPop Polarized Bronze Mirror Lens. About ChromaPop: ChromaPop is the world’s most scientifically advanced polarized lens, with new film-free polarization technology, engineered to optimize color and increase visual clarity. ChromaPop eliminates color confusion for the brain, ultimately recognizing true color, faster, regardless of lens tint. When light passes through a traditional lens, there are two points where light waves intersect and the brain has to work to decipher whether its seeing red, green or blue. With ChromaPop lens technology, the color intersections are blocked so the brain immediately recognizes true vibrant color as it should be seen with increased depth and detail of objects, while reducing eye fatigue. ChromaPop lenses will be available in six proprietary tints: ChromaPop Polarchromic Ignitor, ChromaPop Polar Brown, ChromaPop Polar Gray Green, ChromaPop Polar Platinum and now, ChromaPop Polar Blue Mirror and...

Wiley Xʼs advanced polarization, in combination with 100-percent UV protection, also makes the Polarized WX Saint an ideal sunglass choice for a range of activities on or off the water, from power boating and sailing to hiking and...
