Switch Lens Technology
There are a lot of things you can't control in life. Light isn't one of them. Here are Four things Switch lenses do.
1. Switch Eliminates dangerous UV light
2. Switch polarized lenses eliminate blinding glare.
3. Switch Lenses rebalance colors to improve vision.
4. Switch lenses manage the total amount of light entering the eyes. Switch lenses are designed to manage the total amount of light entering the eye to provide better vision and greater comfort. Bright, sunny days wiht intense light and bright surroundings like the beach, snow, or concrete require lenss that block 88% to 90% of incoming light. The remaining 10% to 10% of transmitted light provides sharp, comfortable vision. Moderately bright days, or bright sunny days with surroundings that tend to absorb light, such as trees, fields and dark buildings, require lenses that block about 80 to 85% of incoming light. This eliminates the need to lift sunglasses to peer into a shadow while enabling comfortable vision in direct sun. Most sunglasses are too dark to provide acceptable vision in haze, hade, low and changeable light conditions. Lenses that block about 70% to 75% of the incoming light tend to strike the perfect balance between providing good sun protection while still being able to see into shadows and haze.
Switch Glare Management Lens Systems include:
(1) one of the two Switch Polarized Lenses described below, (2) the Switch Sun Lens that complements the light transmission and color contrast of the Switch Polarized Lens, and (3) the low light Rose Amber lens.
Polarized Contrast Amber lenses are for intense glare and bright to moderate sun. This lens eliminates glare while enhancing color contrast to make colors more vivid and to see objects more clearly. It is an excellent lens for mountain, snow, beach and water sports,as well as general purpose use in a range of light conditions. By allowing in 85% of available light, this lens will enable you to see into shadows without lifting the sunglass. The back of the lens is protected by an anti-reflective coating to prevent vision obscuring back reflections. This lens is protected by TriGuard™, a patented thin-film coating that resists scratching, causes water to bead up and run off, and is easy to clean. Blocks 100% UV. Available in Reflection Bronze mirror.
True Color Grey lenses are for intense to bright light. This lens provides clear, crisp vision and natural-looking colors. It is an excellent lens for mountain, desert, and snow sports, as well as general purpose use in bright conditions. By blocking 90% of visible light, it is the perfect lens for intense sun.

Contrast Amber lenses lenses are for bright to moderate light. This lens enhances color contrast to make colors more vivid and to see objects more clearly. Reds, yellows, oranges and greens will “pop” from the background. Light blue sky will appear darker, and distant clouds and ridge lines will be more visible. This is an excellent lens for mountain, snow, running, hiking and cycling, as well as general purpose use in a range of light conditions. By allowing in 85% of available light, this lens will enable you to see into shadows without lifting the sunglass.
