    My understanding, and there may be a lab rat or Essilor employee who can correct me, is that Xperio is basically a rebranding of what had been Essilor's previous polarized lens with Crizal SunShield. So they should be functionally identical.

    Judging by his past posts he sounds more like a consumer to me...

    They both block uv400 transmittance and they both have the UV400 absorbtion on their backside coatings
