What are photochromic lenses?

  • Durability: our lenses are still photochromic after 350 hours under specific lamps simulating day light conditions (SUN Test), equivalent to 2 years of normal wear:
    • 5 hours/day during 4 months (summer),
    • 1 hour/day during 8 months (winter).
  • Rapid darkening and fading: change from light to dark in just a few seconds, providing the right level of protection when needed.
  • Varia™ Driving: photochromic molecules are made to react to visible light and not only to UV rays. They are thus active behind car windshields.
  • Varia™ Winter sports: photochromic molecules are made less sensitive to temperature changes for better light transmission at low temperature.

Available in NXT®, Polarized and non-polarized colors.
