POLARISATION: Sunlight travels in waves oscillating in all directions in three-dimensional space. Polarised light mostly travels in two dimensions, horizontally and vertically. Vertical light brings useful information to your eyes, such as colour and contrast. While horizontal light creates optical glare. When sunlight hits smooth surfaces such as water, snow, road or glass, it mainly reflects in a horizontal plane. The polarised lens cuts out this glare, making seeing a breeze. “Polarise your search”
The benefits of Rip Curl’s Polarised Eyewear:
-CUTS OUT REFLECTIVE GLARE
-IMPROVES DEPTH PERCEPTION
-SHARPENS COLOUR CONTRAST
-REDUCES EYE FATIGUE
The yellow light represents sun light, while the blue represents useful light and the red glare. The polarised filter blocks the glare allowing only the light that if found useful through, putting less strain on your eyes
LENS MATERIALS: Rip Curl/CZV lenses are either Polycarbonate or CR39 Hard Resin, available in Polarised and Standard lenses. All RipCurl/CZV lenses have superior optical quality, are high performance, impact resistant, lightweight, durable and scratch resistant. Polycarbonate injected polarized lenses have a pre-colored and pre-curved polarized film inserted in two injections and absorbed during solidification. This means the injected polarised lenses are ‘one piece’ and guarantees the best optical quality and preventing delaminating. Polycarbonate injected polarised lenses provide unsurpassed glare protection eliminating 99% of polarised light. Blocks 100% of harmful UV rays.
OPTICALLY PRECISE: Refers to curved lens that is tapered so that when light hits the lens, it travels through and enters your eyes in a straight line and at the same speed. This creates no distortion or prismatic aberration (abnormality).
QUALITY CONTROL: Carl Zeiss Vision Sun lens quality control procedures are far more severe than the International Standards for sunglass lenses. In fact, CZV personnel inspect every single lens; this ensures the highest of quality standards are met. This includes abrasion tests, optical and design tests, durability tests and inspections tests.
LENS TINTS AND COATINGS: Rip Curl/CZV offer a variety of lenses, tints and coatings enhancing the quality, performance and value of the sunglass. Coatings are applied to enhance scratch resistance, reduce AR glare and to create a fashionable unique look.
