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 Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Bronze Mirror lens is a versatile option that performs well in a variety of light conditions. On overcast days, the copper base enhances contrast and clarity to help you define details. On bright days, the bronze mirror provides a soothing wash of color that reduces eye-fatigue from hours spent under the sun. A polarized filter reduces glare in both environments and provides crisp vision free from distracting reflections.
Overall, the CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Bronze Mirror lens is an impressive everyday option due to its versatility and unique ability to provide what your eyes need depending on the lighting conditions. Get a closer look at this functional lens on the Wiley X Omega below.
