TAC POLARIZED LENSES: WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
As you may know by now, our whole line of fishing sunglasses are polarized. Polarized lenses reduce glare and eye strain, while still delivering 100% UVA/B/C protection. All of our lenses are tested by our manufacturer and an independent lab to make sure they are compliant with all US, EU and other international UV standards to block 100% UVA/B/C rays.
Each batch of our polarized TAC lenses are also tested for effectiveness and were specifically chosen due to their lightweight design and high performance for all of your activities! So what does it all mean?
TAC LENS TECHNOLOGY
Tri Acetate Cellulose (TAC) polarized lenses feature a new lens technology formulated for superior visual and polarization clarity. They have a scratch coating and block 100% harmful UV rays up to 400 nanometers. These lenses are very lightweight and highly impact resistant.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO PROTECT YOUR EYES WHEN FISHING?
We take eye protection seriously: as much as 50% of lifetime UV damage to your eyes occurs when not wearing sunglasses- causing terrible longterm ailments! TAC polarized sunglasses for fishing help shield your eyes from the suns harmful UV rays.
FACT: The UV treatment applied to lenses does not cause them to appear dark or tinted. The dark or gray colored tint is to provide comfort to the eyes when outdoors.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF POLARIZED LENSES?
UV 400 Protection - 100% UVA/B/C protection
They provide 100% protection against UVA, UVB & UVC rays.
Polarized - Reduce eye strain & glare
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, snow, or roads.
Polarized lenses allow IN the vertical light providing us with clear vision but they also have a special filter to keep OUT and absorb the horizontal light caused by glare.
Durable - Multi layered for scratch & shatter resistance
Along with our unbreakable frame material, we chose a lens technology that is also virtually unbreakable and highly impact resistant.
