DriveWear Lenses

Snowy weather and poor driving conditions are a great reason to try DriveWear Lenses, which are prescription sunglass lenses that adapt to varying light conditions.  They start at a light tint, which is great for snowy weather, where there is not a lot of sunlight, but plenty of glare from the snow.  Then they darken to a medium bronze which is dark enough for bright sunlight, but the bronze color helps to enhance contrast.  In addition to being the perfect color for every light condition, they are also polarized, which enhances glare protection from direct sunlight and light reflected off of surfaces like car winshields, snow, or water.  Most importantly, they also have 100% protection from harmful UV radiation which can lead to damage to the eyes such as cataracts and macular degeneration.   Call or come in today for more information about the benefits of DriveWear lenses.

The Benefits of Drivewear Lenses

Although you may have heard of Drivewear, you may not be familiar with exactly what this lens is capable of. Combining Transitions Photochromic Technology with NuPolar polarization, this impressive lens changes based on the conditions you are in. So if it’s a bright sunny day or if there is a cloudy overcast, your lenses will readjust, giving you a perfect view of the world.

Because Drivewear lenses are activated by visible light as well as UV light, they are the only lenses that change color behind the windshield of a car. Depending on the weather conditions you are exposed to, your lenses will range from a bright greenish yellow to a bold reddish brown. With each stylish transition your eyes are guaranteed protection from UVA and UVB rays.

In Low Light/ Overcast Conditions:

  • Lenses turn a high contrast greenish yellow hue.
  • Designed to maximize useful light information.
  • The polarized lenses remove glare that otherwise destroys vision in low light conditions.


Behind the Windshield Daylight/Driving Conditions:

  • Lenses turn a copper hue.
  • Designed to remove excess light and provide good traffic signal recognition.
  • Highlights reds and greens.
  • The polarized lenses remove glare for safe driving vision.


Bright Light/Outside Conditions:

  • Lenses turn a dark reddish brown color.
  • Designed for maximum filtration of excess light so the eyes do not become saturated.
  • The polarized lenses provide maximum comfort in high light conditions.


The science behind Drivewear technology has been developed simply to ensure that you are your most comfortable at all times. These lenses have been optimized for sunlight response, meaning they are not intended for night driving use, and will provide you with optimum comfort regardless of the weather condition.
