Built with Technology from the Lens Up
Eye-Tools™ Performance Reading Glasses are built to our specifications. We use superior frame and lens materials to insure the highest quality. Frame style is important. But performance and protection begin with the lens. Our polycarbonate lenses are light weight and durable because we apply an Anti-Scratch Hard Coating to both sides of our lenses.
At Eye-Tools we are passionate about lenses. Creating a better lens is what led us to the development of Polycarbonate lenses with bifocal inserts.
When eye protection is your priority Polycarbonate is the best lens material available on the market today.
Polycarbonate: a specific, easily worked group of thermoplastic polymers often used to make lenses, which have a high resistance to impact and better light transmission than many kinds of glass. Polycarbonate is a type of thermoplastic polymer, the same material used for bullet resistant glass in autos. It's such hard material that a special diamond-grinding wheel must be used to cut the lens. In comparison, Polycarbonate lenses are lighter, more durable, more impact-resistant and more scratch-resistant and offer better light transmission than any other lens material.
Eye-Tools Polycarbonate lenses are made with ANSI approved Z87+ material that also provides 100% UV protection.
The exclusive P-Tech™ Polarized lenses found in the Eye-Tools Mariner offers the best in Polarization performance . P-Tech Polarized, made with TAC Polarized Lens technology, is a new lens technology formulated for superior visual and polarization clarity. They are hard coated to resist scratching and block out 100% of all harmful UV rays up to 400 nanometers. Additionally P-Tech Polarized lenses are lightweight and highly impact resistant - which makes them more comfortable and longer lasting
Personal preferences often drive the choice of lens colors – especially in sunglasses but it is helpful to know how each lens color performs differently in various light conditions.
Smoke tint is effective at blocking glare without changing color perception.
Yellow or Orange - Improves contrast and sharpness. Lenses in these hues block haze and blue light while enhancing contrast in low light or overcast (flat light) conditions.
Clear – Ideal for indoor and lowlight use when eye protection combined with bifocal clarity is the goal
Frames are never overlooked in Eye-Tools performance readers. And we thought that would be important to every Eye-Tools wearer.
We use Polycarbonate frames for the Elite and Z87 Polycarbonate for the half-frame models, Pro and Sportiv. Polycarbonate frames may cost us a bit more, but they are as tough as they come.
Our Mariner frames are Grilamid TR90 nylon - offering the Eye-Tools wearer a frame that is nearly unmatched in its lightweight durability and strength.
