Clearer than Glass Lenses

Abbe Value measures the lens material's dispersion of light, or clarity. The higher the number the clearer the lens. A lens with a low abbe value creates a higher dispersion and can cause unwanted optical distortion (blurriness). A lens with a high abbe value has a lower value of chromatic aberration, which in turn creates less blurriness and optical distortion. Dispersion occurs due to the fact that the lens is unable to focus all visible colors into one focal point. We had our lenses tested by a third party lab and the results are clear... with an abbe value of 52 our nylon HydroOptics are clearer than glass.

VLT, Visible Light Transmission, measures the amount of light transmitted through a lens. Low VLTs offer a darker tint and higher VLTs offer a lighter tint. Different environments from fishing to golf to beach lounging, benefit from various percentages of VLT for optimal vision and performance.
