    Gradient Rx Polarized Lenses

    I believe they are out there. Anyone know who makes them, color(s) available, material(s), styles (SV or other)? Enquiring mind wants to know.... Thanks.

    The light polarized lenses don't work as well as the dark ones. Yellow is available but doesn't even have a polarization axis. If they are interested in polarized - discourage gradient and/or lighter tints. They just dont work.

    As I stated, enquiring mind wants to know about the availability of these particular lenses. I am not looking at alternatives as I am aware of them, and I am not looking for a solution for a customer/patient. I know these lenses exist, I just want to know who makes them. If anyone does, thanks for the reply or PM me.

    Eyenovate has them custom made for their Chemistrie Layers (Clips), they have 8 colors in gradient polar and look terrific. They have considered semi-finished but if they knew there was interest it would help. Joe Zewe is on here, Joe?

    Hmmm...I have no idea to tell the truth. I've checked and cannot find any indication of those posts being deleted or ever existing. Weird.

    That would explain it. Two different threads with almost identical titles. Thanks Robert.

    George had it right- I thought he meant page two of the thread, instead it was page #2 of this forum.

    If a clip will do, our gradient lenses for Chemistrie clips are polarized and have a backside AR. They are available in 8 different colors.

    Polarized glasses do not provide universal protection from glare. If the wearer tilts his or her head past 45° or so, more of the horizontal light can enter and cause bright spots. In addition, these lenses do not usually work with snow glare because snow tends to reflect light equally in all directions, rather than the mostly horizontal reflection off of liquid water. It is strongly recommended that downhill skiers in particular not wear polarized sunglasses; ice does reflect horizontally, and these glasses can make dangerous icy spots less visible.

    Hi, I know this is quite an old post, but I just wanted to let you know that Younger Optics has recently released a polarized gradient single vision lens, in gray and brown. See link for more specs.

    YO Aimee. Are these lens more polarized at the top than at the bottom. That's what I'm guessing.

    NuPolar Gradient lenses offer the same amount of polarization from top to bottom. When you look at the lens, you'll notice that the lens gradates to a light gray on the bottom; it is not completely clear.

    You can see a computer illustration of the lens at : http://youngeroptics.com/nupolargradient
