When it comes to everyday sunglasses, comfort is key. SMITH’s bio-based Evolve™ frame material is lightweight and durable, making them easy to incorporate into your life. Another feature to keep an eye out for is strategically placed Megol grips on the nose pads and temples. Those points of contact help keep the frames in place, as well as ensuring optical alignment.
As for lenses, the brand’s ChromaPop™ lens technology provides unmatched color definition and clarity by filtering out wavelengths of light that cause color confusion. This sharpens contrast and reduces eye fatigue. Addition lens coatings, like oleophobic and anti-reflective, contribute to clear visibility by repelling oils and blocking glare.
