Lenses

Cocoons feature professional grade scratch-resistant Polaré polarized lenses. When wearing polarized lenses, eyestrain is reduced, allowing your eyes to remain relaxed and focused on the task at hand. The elimination of glare provides a tranquil “cocoon” for your eyes, improving visual acuity and enhancing depth perception. Polaré lenses are optically correct, meaning that there is no visible distortion. It is extremely important when wearing sunglass lenses over prescription eyewear that the lenses are distortion free.

Our proprietary Polaré lens system delivers optical grade visual acuity and durability, unmatched by any other fitover sunglasses or clip-ons.  Polaré lenses filter out 100% of damaging UVA & UVB to provide the maximum level of protection from damaging ultraviolet light waves.  Polaré lenses exceed the requirements of eyewear standards ANSI Z80.3, EN 1836 and AS/NZS 1067 and all FDA impact resistance standards.

HOW DO POLARIZED LENSES IMPROVE VISUAL PERCEPTION?

Light waves reflected from horizontal surfaces produce harsh glare that can greatly distort and hinder visual acuity.  Polarized lenses act as a chemical “venetian blind” that eliminates blinding glare by channeling the reflected light before it reaches the eyes.  The Polaré lens system delivers maximum polarization efficiency to enhance visual performance while allowing the eyes to remain relaxed and focused.

Polarization through Fitover Sunglasses Lenses

WATER:  Reflected surface glare is especially intense on and around water due to it’s highly reflective nature.  Polaré polarized lenses cut through surface glare allowing your eyes to remain relaxed and focused in marine environments.  Try our polarized gray tint with blue mirror finish or polarized amber tint with green mirror finish to make the most of your time on the water.

Polarization through Fitover Sunglasses Lenses

SNOW:   The reflected light levels encountered in snow conditions are so intense that they can result in Photokeratitis, or more commonly described as snow blindness, which is a burn of the cornea.  Our patented OveRx fitover frame designs enclose your eyes in full wrap protection by blocking both direct and reflected light from the sides, top and bottom to deliver 360° of UV Protection®.

ROADWAYS:   Glare encountered while driving can be exceptionally dangerous as it reduces visibility and recognition of roadway obstacles, other vehicles, and pedestrians.  In addition, excess eye strain caused by squinting can reduce alertness.  Cocoons fitover sunglasses featuring 100% polarized lenses in amber and copper tints enhance contrast and sharpen visual acuity while eliminating blinding glare.
