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 Green Mirror lens is a versatile option that performs well in a variety of conditions. A copper base tint enhances contrast on low-light days, while the green mirror coating provides superior protection and visual comfort on bright, sunny days. We must admit that the green mirror coating makes it particularly eye-catching as well! The polarized filter reduces glare and prevents eye-fatigue in bright light conditions or highly-reflective environments. Because of these three features, this lens is a functional, impressive all-around option with a stylish flare.

CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Green Mirror lenses are well-equipped to handle a variety of lighting conditions. Due to the copper base, we're particularly fond of its performance on overcast days. A warm tint helps define details and excels in environments with highly reflective surfaces, such as bodies of water and open roads.
One other thing to note is that when you apply a green mirror to a lens, it adds a rose tint so this lens won't quite appear copper looking through it. However, rose lenses add even more contrast, so it's a win-win!
We recommend the CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Green Mirror lenses for shallow-water fishing due to it's improved depth perception and ability to highlight underwater landscapes.
