                  With 100% mineral lenses, Vuarnet provides a superior clarity with pure, clear vision without distortion. Tinted in the mass of the glass as opposed to a coating on the surface, Vuarnet lenses are scratch and shock resistant whereas Polycarbonate glasses are susceptible to scratches and distortion.

                  Vuarnet Lenses filter out 100% of harmful UV rays (Including UVA, UVB, UVC), up to 99% of damaging blue light, and are the only lenses in the world to absorb up to 94% of Infrared light. With this level of protection, your eyes are not only protected against heat and drying out, but also from glare and reflections, with mirror treatments to the lens and anti-reflective coatings on the inner surface. 

                  Lens Category numbers refer to the percentage of visible light that the lens lets through.

                  CAT 0: 80-100%
                  CAT 1: 46-79%
                  CAT 2: 18-45%
                  CAT 3: 8-17% (Recommended category for strong sunlight conditions)
                  CAT 4: 3-8%

                  Polarised lenses filter and block glare coming from a surface. While these lenses are popular amongst boating and marine enthusiasts, fishing enthusiasts, snow sports enthusiasts, runners, cyclists and drivers, it is important to note that polarised lenses can reduce the visibility of some digital screens and LCD displays.
