Polarised lenses to protect your eyes from harmful reflective glare
UV400 protection – 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays
Multi layered lenses that are hard coated to prevent scratches
Fomo Eyewear lenses are polarised which makes them different from standard sunglass lenses. They have a special film sandwiched between two of the layers of the lens, which only allows vertical light to pass through them. This film eliminates the glare caused by horizontal light that has reflected off surfaces like roads, water and snow.
Our lenses are made from Triacetate Cellulose (TAC) which is a multi-layered lens technology that is formulated to provide complete and thorough elimination of glare, polarised light and harmful UV rays. They provide 100% protection against UVA, UVB & UVC rays up to 400 nanometres.
TAC lenses are made up of 7 layers. First is the polarising film, the second and third layers provide bonding and prevent the polarising film from being damaged. The forth and fifth layers absorb ultraviolet rays and the sixth and seventh layers are shockproofing layers that help prevent lens scratches and increase impact resistance.
What are polarised lenses?
Light waves travel in different directions, vertical light helps us to see but horizontal light creates glare which restricts our vision. Glare is created when light rays bounce off a horizontal shiny surface such as water, sand, car windscreens or snow.
Regular sunglasses only reduce the amount of light travelling through the lense, whether it is vertical or horizontal. So while they are reducing the amount of glare, they are also reducing the amount of vertical light that we need to help us see clearly.
Polarised lenses allow in the vertical light providing us with clear vision but they also contain a special filter to absorb the horizontal light caused by glare, providing better visual clarity and increased protection from UV rays.
