PRODUCT details + FEATURES
Photochromic sunglasses offer a range of benefits that make them a must-have for you if you are regularly active outdoors.

Protection against harmful UV light: Photochromic sunglasses provide high protection against UV rays that can cause damage to the eyes.
Convenience: Since photochromic sunglasses adjust automatically to changing light conditions, you don't have to constantly put them on and take them off or wear a separate pair for different lighting situations.
Versatility: Due to their automatic adjustment to light conditions, photochromic sunglasses are suitable for a variety of outdoor activities such as cycling, running, skiing, hiking, downhill, and much more.
HOW DOES A PHOTOCHROMIC LENS WORK?
Photochromic lenses are treated with molecules that react to changing light. The darkening of the lens is triggered by UV light. When the UV light decreases, the tint of the lens also fades. It takes approximately one to one and a half minutes for the lens to fully darken. The lightening process takes a bit longer.
Our HARPER fits comfortably and snugly against your head due to the curvature of the frame, providing a flush fit with your face at the sides. This ensures your eyes are perfectly protected from wind, dirt, and sunlight.
Sunglasses lenses made of polycarbonate are exceptionally durable. If your sunglasses happen to fall, the lenses won't be easily damaged. In the rare event of breakage, there is no risk of splintering, as polycarbonate lenses do not shatter. Additionally, polycarbonate lenses can be ground very thin, making them extremely lightweight. The material also offers excellent UV protection, making sunglasses with polycarbonate lenses perfect for both lifestyle and sports eyewear. It goes without saying that we use polycarbonate for the lenses of all POP EYES sunglasses.
An anti-reflective coating (also known as AR coating) is applied to optical surfaces such as eyeglass lenses to reduce reflections and glare. The anti-reflective coating consists of thin layers with different refractive indices, designed to effectively reduce the light reflected on the surface. By reducing reflections, the image becomes clearer and more contrasted.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is an invisible part of sunlight that can be harmful to the eyes. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to eye problems such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Therefore, it's important for sunglasses to provide effective UV protection. A good pair of sunglasses should be able to block at least 99% of harmful UV radiation to protect the eyes from long-term damage. All our sunglasses protect against UVA and UVB rays.
"VLT" stands for "Visible Light Transmission" and refers to the percentage of visible light that passes through a lens. A low VLT number means the lenses are heavily tinted and allow less light to pass through, while a high VLT number indicates that the lenses are less tinted and allow more light to pass through. Sunglasses are often categorized by VLT to describe the degree of darkness or tint of the lenses. These categories typically range from 0 to 4, with 0 representing the lowest VLT value (darkest lenses) and 4 representing the highest VLT value (lightest lenses).
Mirrored Sunglasses Lens
Mirrored sunglasses are those with lenses that have a reflective coating. This coating serves to reflect and reduce incoming light, providing better visibility and increased comfort when wearing the glasses. The mirroring is applied in multiple layers, creating trendy effects and producing color gradients. Mirrored sunglasses are currently very popular, and there is a wide variety of different colors available.
Rubberized & Adjustable Nose Pads
You'll enjoy exceptional wearing comfort thanks to the rubberized and adjustable nose pads. These are small pads on the bridge of the sunglasses that rest on the wearer's nose, helping to keep the glasses in place and distribute their weight evenly.
