Edge Lens Technology

Light Management (UV Protection)

Exposure to high levels of UVA/UVB/UVC light without proper sunglass lens filtration/protection may cause damage to all layers of the cornea, permanent cataracts & lens damage or "welder's flash" (photokeratitis). All Edge Eyewear lenses provide 99.9% protection from UVA/UVB/UVC rays.


Polarized Lens

In 1999, Edge Eyewear became the first company to offer a Polarized lens in safety glasses. Because light can be extremely harsh and blinding to the eye, Polarized lenses feature a special filtering layer that blocks out reflected light from below and glare from above. By allowing only direct light to enter, this lens maximizes the ability to see without excessive blinding light.


G-15 Smoke Lens

The U.S. Air Force engineered this specialized technology for used in aviator lenses during the 1950s. Through extensive experimentation with the light spectrum, it was found that transmission of green and yellow light could be maximized at 550 nanometers (the two colors best perceived by the human eye). The outcome is a neutral and true-to-life perspective, which results in a noticeable cooling sensation for the eyes. Edge Eyewear is the first company to offer a safety-rated G-15 lens.
