Photochromic LIMAR lenses (OF9.5 model)

Photochromic lenses are the tint changing lenses that darken when exposed to UV rays from the sun. These lenses combine fashion with comfort and offer protection from the damaging effects of UV radiation and glare while at the same time enhancing quality of vision.

How do they work?

When there is no UV light present, such as the case with artificial lighting, the molecules are transparent to visible light. This is why the lenses stay clear indoors. However, when the lenses are exposed to UV rays, such as in sunlight, the molecules undergo a chemical process that causes them to change shape. The number of molecules that change shape varies with the strength of the UV rays. When a user wearing photochromic lenses travels from outdoors to indoors or from shade to sun, a different chemical reaction occurs and the lenses adapt to the light darkening or fading back.

Technical features:

  • Photochromic lens 8Cd gray to gray with antifog inside and olephobic treatment
  • Cat. 1 to Cat.3 (start changing color to darker 20-30 sec)
