Perceive colours naturally

Essicolour Tints have been created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum in Paris. Using the colour rendering index, the range of Essicolour Tints have been developed to respect natural colour balance. Reducing colour distortion, tinted lenses from Essilor provide improved colour perception to maintain a natural colours when looking through the lens(1). Your tinted lenses will help to mute the brightness of the sun, while maintaining clarity and contrast.
