Sunglasses with auto-responsive technology

React tint adaptive sun lenses use auto-responsive technology to adjust their level of tint, from a mid tint to a dark tint depending on the intensity of sunlight. Throughout the day, you face varied light conditions; including the morning dog walk, commuting to work, dining al fresco or an evening run. The weather can change in an instant, and if you spend a lot of time outdoors, you need a pair of sunglasses that can react to bright light automatically. React Tint lenses can transform in order to become dark enough for the intensity of light, resulting in the most comfortable vision.

React tint lenses that work even in the car

Auto-responsive React Tint technology means that your new sunglasses will get darker in intense sunlight, even when you’re in the car. The darker the React Tint lenses go, the more they can help to combat glare when you’re one on the road, making it easier for you to see clearly and comfortably in the car. Providing comfortable vision, React Tint technology will do the job no matter how bright or cloudy the day gets.

React Tint lenses will shield your vision from UV light as you go about your day-to-day life, whether you’re playing sport, going on holiday or gardening. The lenses can provide a light tint for the shade and overcast days, while automatically adjusting to outdoor light to provide superior darkness in bright sunlight, leaving you to enjoy every moment in the sun safely.
