BOBSTER LENSES

 

POLYCARBONATE LENSES

All Bobster® Eyewear models features durable, lightweight, polycarbonate lenses which provide startling optical clarity and protection against high-mass and high-velocity impact. Polycarbonate lenses are the preferred lenses for performance eyewear. Polycarbonate lenses are hard coated providing excellent durability along with scratch and shatter resistance. Bobster® lenses will NOT splinter so they provide excellent protection from flying debris. All Bobster® lenses provide 100% UVA & UVB protection. Bobster® Eyewear exclusively uses polycarbonate lenses in all of our frames unless otherwise noted.

OPTICALLY CORRECT LENSES

When looking through a non-optically correct lens your eyes will continually refocus due to distortion, this strains the eye which can lead to headaches, nausea and dizziness. Bobster® provides you with the most optically correct and best clarity lenses possible.

INTERCHANGEABLE LENSES

If you don't want multiple pairs of eyewear, but you need different lens colors for every weather condition, then our interchangeable line is for you. The lenses can be easily changed by removing them and inserting the lens that best fits the corresponding weather. They are interchangeably simple. 

Interchangeable frames come with multiple lens colors to be switched without according to lighting conditions.

RX READY

Bobster® Eyewear provides the opportunity for customized prescription lenses for the majority of eyewear styles available. For additional RX information please click here.

POLARIZED LENSES

While ordinary tinted lenses reduce brightness, only polarized lenses eliminate glare. Bobster® uses polycarbonate polarized lenses to ensure the impact resistance of the lenses while most other companies use polarized lenses that will shatter at high impact.

PHOTOCHROMIC ACTIVE CELL TECHNOLOGY

Bobster® photochromic lenses are available in a variety of eyewear styles and are precision designed to automatically darken/lighten to the amount of ultraviolet (UV) light that reaches the lens. The advantage of a photochromic lens is you can wear your eyewear all day and not have to carry multiple sets of eyewear with you or change your lenses according to light conditions. Bobster® offers a wide range of eyewear with photochromic lenses with varying transmission rates. The higher the transmission (VLT) rate the lighter the lens color. Clear lenses have a transmission rate between 80%-100% and typical smoked lenses have a transmission rate between 8-18%.

MULTI-LAYER MIRROR COATED LENSES

Multi-layer mirror coating is composed of extremely thin layers of titanium and silicon oxides. This coating eliminates up to 97% of infrared rays and 100% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. It also blocks rays in the blue spectrum while allowing other light waves to pass through to the retina, which improves the quality of the transmitted light and maximizes optical clarity in all conditions. As a result, color focusing is improved and vision is sharper and brighter.



Please note: Most photochromic lenses do NOT get as dark as traditional smoked lenses. Please do not leave photochromic lenses in direct sun or extreme heat for long periods of time as it will decrease the performance of the lenses.
