The cold-weather months require TLC when it comes to your overall health. Whether you’re dealing with dry skin or fighting off a nasty cold, winter can take a toll on your body. Our eyes are no exception. Fortunately, there’s now a revolutionary new approach that might help with your winter eye woes.
SunSync Elite, a new light-reactive lens, could be your must-have solution this season. Here’s why:
1. Provides constant UV protection
Winter is typically associated with gray skies and cooler temperatures, but it’s also a very vulnerable time for our eyes. Although we can’t see it, we are exposed to ultraviolet radiation daily, even in overcast weather. And just because it’s snowing doesn’t mean you’re getting any less exposure. In fact, snow can reflect almost 80 percent of UV radiation, which means in addition to the light coming from the sun, even more harmful UV rays are being directed into your eyes when you ski, snowboard or even shovel snow.
SunSync Elite automatically darkens when it comes into contact with UV light, making sure you have around-the-clock protection without having to think about it.
2. Ultra-fast change time can keep up with your on-the-go lifestyle
Baby it’s cold outside, but the reality is you still have places to go, people to see and errands to run. Faced with low temperatures, your day probably looks like a mad dash from outdoors to indoors to escape the cold. SunSync Elite has up to 10x faster fade-back speed. In independent testing in polycarbonate at 73.4°F, SunSync Elite fades from fully activated to 37.1% T in 10 seconds compared to 37.5% T in 100 seconds for Transitions Signature VII and ultra-fast activation to make sure your glasses don’t slow you down.
3. Excellent blue light defense makes sure you’re protected indoors too
The idea of bundling up in a blanket and cozying up on the couch is much more enticing when the weather is less than ideal. But just because you’re indoors, doesn’t mean your eyes are in the clear from certain risks. Choosing to stay indoors likely comes with binge-watching your favorite shows, online shopping, reading on your tablets and devices—all things that expose your eyes to blue light. Exposure to blue light can result in sore, tired, irritated eyes in as little as two hours of screen time. SunSync Elite offers targeted blue light filtration from digital screens to keep your eyes happy and healthy.
