DriveWear lenses: A passion for driving and outdoors
First, there was eyewear. Then, there was sunwear. Now there is DriveWear. DriveWear are the first lenses designed specifically to meet the unique visual demands of the driving task.
DriveWear lenses uniquely combine two of the most advanced technologies found in the eyeglass industry today: photochromic technology and polarization technology.
DriveWear lenses are the first photochromic lenses to darken behind the windshield of a car, allowing DriveWear to change color based on current driving conditions in order to enhance the driver’s vision. In addition, DriveWear lenses are polarized to block blinding glare, another distinct advantage when driving a car.
Polarized lenses enhance contrast for crisp high definition vision. They cut blinding glare – a frequent cause of road accidents – reflected off roads, cars, buildings, wet surfaces, dashboard and bodies of water.
Polarization blocks unexpected bright light or road glare in overcast conditions. It improves vision in rain, fog and hazy conditions.
Photochromic lenses seamlessly change darkness based on the available light, to ensure that the lenses have the right darkness for the current light conditions.
Regular photochromic lenses don’t work behind a car windscreen because they are activated by UV light and windscreens blocks UV.
DriveWear lenses work behind the windscreen because they react to both visible and UV light, so that DriveWear lenses will darken in bright light and lighten in low light.
Drivewear lenses fade to 63% tint in low light, darken up to 75% when driving, and darken up to 90% in bright outdoor light.
The 3 colors of DriveWear lenses
Dark Brown – Darkest Color
The color changes to its darkest state. Dark brown provides maximum protection from intense sunlight and delivers true vibrant colours. Polarization blocks blinding glare.
Lenses darken to 90% tint.
Copper – Variable Color
The lenses darken or lighten to a copper color providing excellent traffic signal recognition, greater depth perception and enhanced contrast for ultimate visual quality and safety. The polarization blocks dangerous blinding glare.

Olive – Lightest Color
