Xperio is a new brand of polarized lense that bring together the very best industry-leading designs and knowledge from Essilor. All lenses that carry the Xperio name meet or exceed Essilors rigorous performance standards. Much more than standard sun lensesStandard sun lenses reduce light while Xperio™ Polarising lenses reduce glare caused by light reflection. Glare occurs when natural light waves hit reflective surfaces such as pavement, windshields, snow and water.
Glare can be very harsh to unprotected eyes, and can alter perception of shape, colour and contrast.

New protection against glare

A large amount of light entering the eye comes from sunlight being reflected off smooth horizontal surfaces such as water, snow, ice, wet
road surfaces, windshields etc. this causes a certain amount of glare, reduces contrast and alters our perception of colour and shape. Xperio™ Polarising lenses are designed to cut out glare by minimising reflected light through the use of a special polarising filter. Unlike standard sun lenses, Xperio™ Polarising lenses only let useful light through.
