Eyeglass Tyler breaks down Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens tech for the uninitiated before diving into the Polarized Copper lens. Tune in below or keep reading to learn more!

Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ Overview

In case you aren't familiar with Wiley X's proprietary lens technology, here's a brief look into why they created it.

The human eye naturally gets confused when colors overlap. CAPTIVATE™ lenses filter out this color confusion and separate reds, blues, and greens to sharpen colors and increase contrast. You'll get a truer color experience, improved depth perception, and better optical clarity with CAPTIVATE™ lenses.

With 8 different lens options each designed to improve contrast in a specific environment, CAPTIVATE™ lenses always have the right tint for every condition. And, of course, these lenses also protect against UV and HEV blue light and include an oleophobic (that's oil-repellant) coating to keep the lens cleaner longer and make it easier to clean when it does get dirty.

On to the lens itself. It's in the name—this lens has a copper base with the addition of polarization to block glare. The copper base provides increased contrast while also darkening your view, resulting in a brownish tint that's pleasant to look through and brightens the colors you see.
