|OPX polarized and photochromic lenses debut|
Oliver Peoples introduces a collection of sunwear for Spring 2003, featuring OPX polarized and photochromic lenses. The polarized lenses have a smooth, fine surface that prevents scratches, enhances contrast, definition and colors, and works to negate glare. The photochromic lenses automatically change under various light conditions, maximizing both comfort and versatility. Both of the lenses are made of glass and have an anti-reflection coating and a hydrophobic X coating, exclusive from Oliver Peoples. The X coating on the polarized lenses provides anti-friction and extreme repellent properties for water, oil, fingerprints and dust. On the photochromic lenses, the X coating in combination with a reflective mirror coating, applied as a gradient, enhances the dramatic style of the lens while reducing eye strain. Both lenses have a thickness of 1.8mm and are suitable for six- and eight-base lens designs. The photochromic lens is offered in chrome amber, chrome gold, chrome graphite and chrome sapphire. The polarized lens comes in charcoal, java, platinum and rosewood. The lenses are available in five new sunglasses: Jato, Rossi, Impala, Pakalas and Rincon.
