COLOR

designed to maximize useful light information reaching the eye
       COLOR

designed to both remove excess light and provide good traffic signal recognition; highlighting the reds and greens

       COLOR

designed for maximum filtration of excess light so that the eye does not get saturated



In Low Light/ Overcast conditions, Drivewear lenses remove glare and maximize useful light information reaching the eye for optimum visual accuity

POLARIZED

to remove glare that would otherwise destroy vision in low light conditions

 

In Bright Light/ Driving conditions (behind the windshield), Drivewear lenses remove glare and control the intensity of light reaching the eye for optimum visual accuity

POLARIZED

to remove glare for safe driving vision

 

In Very Bright Light/ Outside conditions, Drivewear lenses remove glare and provide maximum filtration of excess light for optimum visual comfort and accuity

POLARIZED

to provide maximum comfort in high light conditions
TRANSMISSION


At low lighting conditions, Drivewear lenses provide high transmission of light to maximize the total information to all the eye’s visual receptors. This results in maximum visual acuity at this low lighting level. The high contrast polarizer removes glare that would otherwise destroy vision in low light conditions. In this stage Drivewear lenses are a high contrast green/yellow color. Simply, there is no better designed lens for either outdoors or while driving under low light, overcast conditions.
  TRANSMISSION

During bright light conditions behind the windshield of a car, Drivewear lenses provides lower overall transmission to control light intensity for optimum visual acuity. Drivewear lenses promote preferential activation of the eye’s red cones (and to a lesser extent, green cones) and result in the best possible vision at these higher light levels. Drivewear’s high contrast polarizer is absolutely essential behind the windshield of the car, because it blocks out blinding glare, one of the most dangerous of all driving hazards. Under these conditions, the Drivewear lenses turn a copper color which many feel is the optimum color for a driving lens. This unique behind-the-windshield response protects against bright light and glare and provides better sensitivity to the “visual signal” that is vital for safe driving.
  TRANSMISSION

In outside bright light conditions, the eyes’ visual receptors, the rods and cones, can easily get “overpowered” and “oversaturated” with light. Under these bright outside conditions the Drivewear lens is designed for maximum filtration of this excess light. It achieves its maximum dark color under these conditions. Here again, it is important to provide maximum protection from blinding glare, and only polarized lenses can do this. Drivewear is designed to provide maximum comfort to the wearer in these high outdoor light conditions.
