Lighten up your dark side

The new SmartLens photochromic eyewear from AOSafety has an automatic lens changer that adjusts according to the outdoor light conditions, reducing the need to purchase multiple pairs of protective eyewear, says the product’s maker Aearo Technologies. The lens lightens or darkens as needed and within seconds, and is “UV reactive”, which means it responds to the amount of ultraviolet light it receives, the company adds. SmartLens also features durable frame with nylon brow and magnesium alloy temples, tough polycarbonate lens that absorbs 99.9 per cent of UV, abrasion resistant hard-coat for extended life, and meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Impact Standards and ANSI Z80.3’s traffic signal recognition requirements, the company says.
