Sunglasses Too Dark
Today's dark UV
Sunglasses "dilate" the pupils, allowing more UV and UVB radiation
into the Eye. Is this why Vision Loss is the #2 Health cost in the
US(2012)? The dark UV film wears off quickly in low quality
Sunglasses, whereas UVB Photochromics is a sandwiched procedure. Sun lenses that block UVA, UVB and UVC up to 75% provide
a perfect equilibrium between good vision and maximum protection. Photochromic lenses are this perfect balance.
Boomers and seniors whose pupillary reaction times are
slow-with-age, do very well with photochromic lenses.

Reddish Brown Tints

light. A great balance photochromic tint for the colour spectrum
with the added benefit of protection from harmful UVB 'blue' light .

It is the highest health cost of any disease category - greater than
Diabetes, all Cancers combined and cardiovascular disease.
Vision loss costs Americans $150 billion every year and $40 billion
of which results from lost productivity from unemployment and
underemployment . Everyone bears these health costs: taxpayers,
employers, family and friends.
