Eyeglass Tyler explains the ins and outs of Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lenses and the Polarized Blue Mirror in particular.
If you're new to Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens technology, here's a brief overview of how they work and their features.
It all starts with the visible light spectrum. Within this spectrum, our human eye easily distinguishes the blues, greens, and reds as distinctive colors. However, where these colors overlap with one another, our eyes struggle to decipher and see clearly. CAPTIVATE™ lenses filter out this confusing light by separating the blues, greens, and reds to increase contrast and clarity. You'll get true color definition, better depth perception, and superior optical clarity when wearing Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lenses.
With eight different lens options each designed to improve contrast in a specific environment, CAPTIVATE™ lenses always have the right tint for every condition. These lenses also protect against UV & harmful HEV blue light, an essential step in preventative eye care. As for coatings, CAPTIVATE™ lenses include scratch-resistance and an oleophobic treatment that repels water, dust, and oil. This makes cleaning a breeze, meaning more time seeing clearly while doing what you love.
Now that you're familiar with Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens technology, let's take a look at the lens itself.
The CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Blue Mirror lens is a stylish option that excels in performance on sunny days. A grey base darkens the tint, while the blue mirror coating prevents certain harsh light from reaching your eyes. A polarized filter reduces glare and prevents eye-fatigue in bright light-reflective conditions. What do these three features together mean for you? Superior sun protection, greater contrast, and optimal visual comfort on even the brightest of days.
