Lenses and frame

TRANSMISSION FACTOR (VLT)

The colour of the lenses plays a fundamental role in the management of brightness in any environments in which they are used. Glasses can be classified in 5 categories from 0 to 4 based on VLT (Visible Light Transmission). This value indicates the light quantity transmitted to the eyes through the lenses, it is affected by the colour, by the thickness, by material and by treatments of lenses.

CATEGORYCOLOURVLT(%)DESCRIPTION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
0 Clear or lightly coloured/darkened lenses 80÷100  VLT-1-IT Very limited reduction of sunlight
1 Lightly coloured/darkened lenses 43÷80  VLT-2-IT Limited reduction of sunlight
2 Medium coloured/darkened lenses 18÷43   Good protection against sunlight
3 Dark lenses 8÷18   High protection against sunlight
4 Very dark lenses 3÷8   Very high protection against sunlight (sea, snow, mountain or desert).
Not recommended for driving and for street use

LENSES COLOUR

The effects of an unsuitable protective filter colour may cause: decrease of visual acuity, sensation of effort, headache and even nausea and dizziness. Different colours of the lenses allow to promote or preserve the perception of colours, of contrasts and visual acuity; furthermore, they may reduce reverberation and remove UV rays.

COLOURVLT(%)DIRECTIONS
CLEAR
occhiali-INCOLORE
86÷92 Recommended for indoor environments with good visibility conditions and for indoor applications, where the protection of the eyes against impact and most common risks is recommended. Moreover, they help to protect against ultraviolet rays.
 YELLOW
occhiali-GIALLO
86÷87 Recommended for low-light conditions, cloudiness, mist or fog, seeing as in such conditions, it allows to make objects more visible. Beside perfectly filtering ultraviolet rays (UV) and the blue portion (up to 480 nm) of the visible spectrum, it increases contrast even in low-light conditions.
I/O
(INDOOR/
OUTDOOR)

occhiali-IO
 
57÷68 Recommended for anyone frequently passing from indoor (closed and with low light) to outdoor environments (open-air and quite enlightened) and vice versa. Being a clear lens with a light mirrored treatment, it provides optimal view in both indoor and outdoor lighting conditions. This lens allows, therefore, a greater visibility and a high identification of colours and shapes during the use in both conditions and during the passage through these two environments.
 GREY
occhiali-GRIGIO
11÷20 Recommended for well-lighted environments where light causes a considerable eye strain. It greatly absorbs both ultraviolet rays (UV) and infrared ones (IR), beside keeping the relative proportions among colours. The absorption is almost constant in the visible spectrum while the wavelength changes, so that the chromatic perception is only slightly altered.
MIRRORED
(BLUE)

occhiali-SPECCH-B
 
24 Recommended for environments where it is necessary to be protected against intense sunlight, glare, reverberation and all those elements which cause considerable eye strain. The mirrored treatment on the outer surface of the lens reduces transmittance through a greater reflection of the light hitting the lenses. It is obtained, therefore, a significant reduction of the quantity of light that reaches the eyes, getting a high benefit and a visual comfort even after an extended use.
REVO
(BLUE, GREEN,
SILVER)

occhiali-REVO-B-V-A
 
9÷14 Recommended for outdoor works with very intense and annoying light condition which disturbs the sight causing eye strain. REVO treatment, done on the external surface of the lens, improves visual performance, protects against ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) and infrared (IR) radiations, grants an excellent abrasion resistance and long-lasting adhesion.
POLARIZED
(GREY)

occhiali-POLAR-G
 
15 Recommended for intense light and high glow caused by reflective surfaces. Such situations cause a remarkable decrease in eyesight and consequently a considerable eye strain. This type of lens is able to let the light pass selectively; indeed, acting like “Venetian blinds”, they reduce the overall quantity of light passing through and let only the “useful” light pass through. In this way, reverberation is notably reduced and it is increased the quality of images which appear brighter, consequently even the visual perception is improved.

LENS CURVATURE

A further plus of lenses improving comfort is the curvature (up to base 10). The curvature index defines the difference between more or less wrap-around lenses. Indeed, it results that more wrap-around lenses and so with a greater curvature have a wider and clearer field of view due to a reduction of distortions and aberrations of typical images of less wrap-around lenses and with not high curvature. It results an improvement of visual quality as well as the clarity of peripheral vision of the user.

LENSES TREATMENTS

ANTI-SCRATCH-TREATMENT-ico

ANTI-SCRATCH TREATMENT
Hardening treatment carried out on the surfaces of the lenses which determines an improvement in terms of resistance against abrasion and therefore, a longer duration in time.

ANTI-SCRATCH-TREATMENT-PLUS-vert-ico

ANTI-SCRATCH TREATMENT PLUS
Hardening treatment carried out on the surfaces of the lenses which determines an improvement in terms of resistance against abrasion and therefore, a longer duration in time. In conformity with the optional EN 166 requirements, eyepieces with anti-scratch treatment PLUS satisfy resistance parameters to the damage of surface caused by thin particles (whose minimum provided requirement is a luminance factor lower than 5 cd/(m2·lx)), thus offering definitely higher performance compared to the standard anti-scratch treatments on the marketplace. COFRA indicates such performances by specifying the maximum luminance factor (expressed in cd/(m2·lx)) tested by the certification bodies. Therefore, such eyepieces may be marked with the symbol “K”.

occhiali-trattamento17-EN
ANTI-FOG-TREATMENT-ico

ANTI-FOG TREATMENT
Treatment carried out on the surface of lenses which prevents fogging and, being able to spread condensation formed on the surfaces of the lenses in the passage from cold to hot environments, improves the visibility in critical conditions.

ANTI-FOG-TREATMENT-PLUS-vert-ico

ANTI-FOG TREATMENT PLUS
Treatment carried out on the surface of lenses which prevents fogging and, being able to spread condensation formed on the surfaces of the lenses in the passage from cold to hot environments, improves the visibility in critical conditions. In conformity with the optional EN 166 requirements, eyepieces with anti-fog treatment PLUS satisfy resistance parameters against fogging (whose minimum provided requirement is a resistance for at least 8 s), thus offering definitely higher performance compared to the standard anti-fog treatment on the marketplace. COFRA indicates such performances by specifying the minimum time of resistance to fogging (expressed in seconds) tested by the certification bodies. Therefore such eyepieces may be marked with the symbol “N”.

occhiali-trattamento18-EN
UV400-PROTECTION-ico

UV400 PROTECTION
UV400 protection extends protection of lenses beyond the conventional block, rated 380 nm. Such treatment, indeed, allows to filter UV radiations beyond this wavelength, blocking the transmittance of the light spectrum up to 400 nm and helping to protect eyes from a wider range of harmful light rays.

MIRRORED-TREATMENT-ico

MIRRORED TREATMENT
Carried out externally to the lens, covered with a thin partially reflecting layer, it is a treatment that allows a greater reflection of incident light on the lens itself, reducing most of the light that reaches the eyes. This treatment is suitable and recommended for use in conditions of extremely strong light and where it is necessary to be protected against glare (snow and ice).

REVO-ico

REVO TREATMENT
Multi-layer coating made on the external surface of lens. It allows to reflect to a high degree that particularly intense and annoying light that disturbs the sight provoking a considerable eye strain. REVO treatment improves visual performance, protects against ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) and infrared (IR) radiations dangerous for eyes, and grants an excellent abrasion resistance and a long-lasting adhesion. This treatment is suitable and recommended for all outdoor activities requiring high visual comfort and protection against sources of intense light.

HYDROFOBIC-ico

HYDROPHOBIC TREATMENT
Excellent water-repellent treatment performed on the surface of the lenses through a vacuum process that creates a thin and transparent film. The unique formula used during this process provides exceptional water repellency, making the lenses suitable for all those activities where there is high humidity, such as fishing. It can be applied to simple lenses or on the outer layer of any mirrored or REVO lens.

POLARIZED-ico

POLARIZING FILTER
The polarizing filter is a filter of polarized lenses that reduces eye strain caused by sources of glare and/or glass or reflective surfaces (water, ice, snow, sand, road surface). The result is an increased visual comfort, a higher optical quality and a better contrast of colors, making them more vivid and clear.
