  • Using the best optical grade polycarbonate, we inject special filters and glare reducers into molten polycarbonate: ultraviolet inhibitors to block over 98% of dangerous UVA and over 95% of UVB and C. Harmful blue light and white light are also blocked in this process. 
  • Special coatings, both front and back of the lenses, further block UV rays while increasing scratch resistance over ordinary plastic lenses. 
  • Using an high-tech vacuum chamber we add a specialized metal coated mirror on the front surface to further filter incoming sun rays. This mirror coating, first developed for the NASA space program, is invisible to the wearer even though those looking at the wearer see the mirror color on the front surface of the lens. It is still used today by astronauts in outer space. 
  • "Extreme Glare" technology is the absolute best at reducing glare from the sun and reflective surfaces, surpassing polarization. It does so without creating blotches on windshields and digital screen displays. Unlike polarized lenses, XG s are legal to wear in the cockpit. This tripleoid technology is a sophisticated, three-part scientific process developed by Zurich Extreme Glare technicians.

Comparison Using A 500 Watt Halogen Light

Ordinary Polarized Lens
"Extreme Glare" Lens
Notice! You can read the words stamped in the metal background with Extreme Glare Sunglasses' Lenses.
The photos above show how Extreme Glare Sunglasses' lenses are far more superior than ordinary polarized lenses. The object in the photos is a 500 Watt lamp that can be as intense as the sun for people with extreme eye sensitivity. The polarized lens doesn't block the lamp's glare as much as Extreme Glare Sunglasses' lenses does. Not only is there absolutely no glare, but you can clearly see the bulb itself as well as the drawn figures, numbers, and stamped lettering on the shroud. 

(Never look into the sun, or any bright light without proper protection, and guidance from an optical professional.)
