Why would you pay extra for Bolle sunglasses when Dodgy Dave down the market is selling a great looking wrap around pair for a fiver??
Lets start with the obvious, the optical quality of Bolle lenses is the best. There is no light distortion throught the lens (which will fatigue your eyes) even on the wrap around versions. As well as being optically superb all Bolle sunglasses have polycarbonate lenses, anti scratch coating, UVA/UVB protection, spring hinges, thermogrip and many can be upgraded to have polarized lenses. This is what all these features mean to you.
Polycarbonate lenses are tougher than a Yorkie that's been in the freezer for a decade and they probably taste better too (untested). The Bolle super lightweight, premium-grade plastic resin lens is 20 times more impact resistant than glass, and a third of the weight. Like I said - tough.
The polarized lens is all about glare and reflection. The Bolle polarized lens is an optical precise filter embedded in the lens which eliminates most glare and reflected light.
Bolle polarized lenses are produced through an exclusive injection process to ensure the highest optical quality. The polarizing film is injected into the glass during the glass manufacturing process - it is not bonded within a sandwich. This prevents any distortion and delamination problems which are common in most polarized lenses
|Scratch resistant lens - Carbo glas coating|
If you want to play with your cat in your sunglasses - no problem. The Bolle proprietary, industrial strength coating is applied to both sides of the lens for greater scratch resistance.
Even Dodgy Dave down the market sells full UVA/UVB protected sunglasses but ask him if his plastic nightmares, that make your nose look bulbous, provide protection up to 400 nanometres... Remember to be wearing his glasses first so that he doesn't punch you.
Bolle sunglasses exceed the industry standard with 100% UVA/UVB protection, up to 400 nanometres.
I'm telling you, the one thing you don't want is backside glare... it sounds really embarrassing and unpleasant on the eyes.
If you didn't know glare comes in two directions. This scientifically engineered coating on the backside of most Bolle sunglasses eliminates backside glare to reduce eye strain.
