Lens Information

Drivers are constantly adapting to changing conditions, forced to react to the uncertainty of the sun, clouds and glare.  Serengeti eyewear helps you take control of your view of the road. Our proprietary Spectral Control System selectively filters certain colors in the visible light spectrum, creating a high definition view. All while constantly adjusting  to changing bright and low light conditions with our advanced photochromic lenses. Let Serengeti take control, so you can concentrate on the road ahead.

Lens Materials:

Lenses are made in two different lens materials:


Ultra Light Glass:  Borosilicate optical glass from Corning, which can withstand extreme temperature changes.  The lenses are chemically tempered to ensure scratch and impact resistance, then ground to perfection.  Lenses are also treated with a unique coating that protects the edges, all while being monitored by a technician who examines every lens by hand to ensure the highest quality.  Staying true to Serengeti's commitment to craftsmanship, Serengeti gives unparalleled attention to detail throughout every phase of the lens-making process. 20% lighter and thinner than regular glass, the ultra-light glass lens is the most optically superior lens on the market. Hydrogen fuled Lehr furnaces fuse each lens with the Photochromic and Spectral Control technologies, with varying temperatures determining the proprietary lens color.

Polar PHD Lens:  Built with NXT technology and made from Trivex material which is 75% lighter than glass and 10% lighter than polycarbonate.  Trivex was adapted from fighter jet canopies and helicopter windshields that were designed to withstand extreme impact and temperature changes.  Hydro and oleophobic coatings help to repel water, fingerprints and debris while an anti-reflective coating absorbs glare to eliminate backside reflections.

Lens colors:

Note:  Not all colors available in all frames.

Drivers Photochromic Lenses
Serengeti Drivers lenses
The amber-colored Drivers lens is particularly well suited for driving. That’s because it enhances colors and contrast, lightening and darkening for optimal light transmission in any driving condition. It’s also engineered to transmit more red, yellow and green colors, making it ideal for identifying stoplights. And thanks to its ability to relax your eye muscles, the Drivers lens helps reduce stress and fatigue while driving. Available in ultra-light glass.

555nm Photochromic Lenses

Serengeti 555n lenses

The 555nm lens gets its name from the 555 nanometer center of the visible color spectrum of light, the point where the human eye sees the easiest and most comfortably. Ideal for bright light conditions, the photochromic 555nm lens manages yellow and green light transmission to cool and relax the eyes. The light silver mirror coating further reduces eyestrain by acting as a protective shield against glare. Available in ultra-light glass.
