Introducing a revolutionary way to perceive color, via the eye and brain, Smith Optics released their firsthand lens technology today, ChromaPop. For those who aren’t too tech savvy and ignore the spec lists or directions, here it is broken down step by step how color waves work with the polarized ChromaPop and its advantages. Lens Tech 101 in session!

To make this as coherent as possible we’re going to start with the basics. The eye has the ability to see individual blue, green and red wave-lengths immediately but color confusion occurs when sporting conventional polarized lenses.  Not to stress, color confusion is a natural occurrence where color waves cross over each other making it difficult for the eye and brain to distinguish true color classification of the environment.

See what we did there? Do ya?!

Now toss those inadequate shades and see ChromaPop work its magic with the ability to filter out this confusion using propriety lens technology separating the wave-lengths at two specific points where they intersect. As a result, the brain can decipher clarity and vibrant colors quicker ultimately reducing fatigue of the eye and brain. ChromaPop also features film free lenses to eliminate the use of glue to prevent the possibility of delamination or cracking. And be aware that select polarized tints consist of Photochromic technology that can automatically adapt to variable light conditions. Pretty sly eh?

What to take away from this: Standard polarized lenses are incredible at glare reduction but often at the expense of color. ChromaPop polarized lenses not only reduce glare, but allow the vibrancy of natural color to subsist.

Available in six new styles and fifteen of Smith’s favorite frames, peep the transformation at your local retail store.
