WLC offers a full range of tints. You can choose from filters, solid or graduated single colour tints or even bi-colour tints. We offer polarised lenses which align light rays from the sun, giving you a crystal clear view at all times. We are also able to provide a variety of mirror coatings, offering up to 100% UV protection. The colour and density is matched with the tint to enhance the wearer's visual comfort and performance. At WLC we would be more than happy to help you find your perfect tint.
As well as being a great fashion accessory, tinted lenses also provide many benefits to the wearer. We offer tinted lenses across a huge range of lens designs to meet nearly every prescription. Our tinted lenses enhance contrast and reduce glare, and enhance wearer vision during a wide variety of activities. We also offer fashionable colours outside of the more regular browns and greys to suit all frame types, making fashionable sun wear more accessible to prescription lens wearers. Our sun lenses offer UV400 protection, and can be further enhanced by applying one of our Satin coatings to the lens.
Our range of tint colours are available across most of the lens designs that we offer and the colours available are updated regularly to keep up with new fashion trends and consumer demands. As well as the traditional greys and browns, we offer vibrant fashion colours, as well as softer pastel colours for more subtle aesthetics. Different colour tints will affect the wearers vision in different ways. Red, yellow, and blue lenses for example can enhance visual acuity and improve contrast, whereas the the more traditional green and brown tint provides more natural vision with a slight colour enhancement.
In addition to solid tints, dip technology can also be used to produce graduated tints. In these lenses, the level of light reduction decreases continuously from the top to the bottom of the lens. Sunglass lenses with graduated tints are particularly suitable for applications where the light conditions change when wearers raise their eyes such as playing golf.
We also have an extensive range of mirrors available for our sun lens range. Mirrored lenses are often seen as purely a fashion statement, but there is much more to them than that. Mirrored lenses are highly reflective, and reduce the amount of light that enters the eye. Mirrored lenses are excellent for use in conditions with very high intensity light, such as skiing and beach holidays. Many people also prefer the aesthetics of having their eyes concealed behind mirrored lenses. Mirror finish lenses are available with polarised sun lenses. Polarised mirror lenses are particularly popular for mountain and snow sports, where wearers are subjected too high intensity light with various sources of glare.
