High-tech lenses

What’s more, the lenses are also water and smear-resistant. All UA Performance Sunglass lenses & UA Tuned TM lenses have hydro/oleophobic coating applied to the front and back of the lenses. The hydro/oleophobic coating repels water, dust, oil and dirt from the lenses and stays cleaner for longer for optimal visual results.

UA Tuned TM performance lenses are scientifically engineered for ultimate visual precision by sport. Each lens filters in the light you need to create a sharper colour separation, enhanced visual detail, and heightened contrast within varied sport environments. The lenses offer 100% protection against harmful UVA/B/C rays while also increasing depth perception and delivering the brightest field of vision with maximum image definition.

The Polarised lenses contain a filter that polarises light, blocks reflections, and prevents glare. The high-contrast polarised lenses in the UA eyewear collection have filters with a special dye inside the mixture which blocks the areas of overlap between the colours offering greater contrast between the colours and consequently a higher definition of the image.

The range also offers Polarised lenses and mirrored lenses. The Polarised lenses contain a filter that polarises light, blocks reflections, and prevents glare. The mirrored lenses include a combination of mirror coatings offering top quality, performance, durability and scratch resistance. For example, the Infrared Mirror coating, further absorbs harmful infrared waves, to ensure even more protection to the eye.
