Whether you are fishing, biking, hiking, or simply relaxing on the beach, the experience of crisp, clear vision is everything you need to enhance. The optical wizards at Smith went above and beyond to develop the world's most advanced polarized lens that provides protection and clarity in every situation. Smith ChromaPop lens technology provides us with a lens that will protect your eyes all day, every day while making every detail pop.
What is Chromapop?
Chromapop is Smith's proprietary lens technology that allows your eyes to see true color. This technology filters out distorted color confusion that causes eye fatigue and vision distortion. These lenses will truly bring an amazing "pop" of color and enhance any outdoor experience through unmatched contrast.
How Chromapop Lenses Work
All visible light is composed of 3 colors- blue, green, and red. Naturally, our eyes can clearly distinguish these 3 colors, but when these colors start to overlap, "color confusion" occurs. ChromaPop Lenses filters out 2 specific wavelengths of light that cause color confusion, resulting in an increase in clarity & higher definition.
Advantages of Smith ChromaPop Lens Technology:
-Better Experience: Sharper, more vivid and clear colors
-Less Work: Don't have to work as hard to see details, reducing eye fatigue
-Faster Performance: You can respond quicker & more confidently and with more visible details
