- Large Fit
- Hydrophilic Megol™ nose/temple pads
Hydrophilic Megol - It looks like rubber, but appearances can be deceiving. Think of Rubber 2.0. It’s Hydrophilic Megol and its moisture absorbing qualities promise a secure, comfortable fit. They won’t slip. They won’t slide. They won’t fall off.
- Tapered Lens Technology™
Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively curved lens causing them to refract. This refraction causes a prismatic effect, or distortion.
Smith's Tapered Lens Technology (TLT) corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens thickness from the optical center toward the peripheral view. Light waves now travel directly to your eye to generate precise vision and reduce potential eye fatigue.
Objects are clearly defined and seen in their exact position.

Ultraviolet Radiation (200 - 380 nm)
Studies show that long term exposure to UV rays may cause eye diseases, including cataracts. In addition, short-term exposure can cause temporary conditions such as "snow blindness", Ultraviolet radiation can be divided into three categories.
UVC (200 - 290 nm)
UVC rays are carcinogenic and usually absorbed by the earth's atmosphere to never reach your eyes. However, with today’s depleting ozone layer you can never be too safe, especially in the Southern Hemisphere.
UVB (290 - 320 nm)
UVB is a physically painful form of ultraviolet radiation. These are the sun's "tanning rays" which are absorbed by the cornea. Exposure to UVB can temporarily damage the cornea.
UVA (320 - 380 nm)
UVA rays are absorbed by the lens of your eye. The resulting damage heals slowly, if at all. About one percent of all UVA rays penetrate the retina, which cannot repair itself.
