a new level of comfort and visual performance, the Smith Optics Touchstone
Polarized Sunglasses are the definition of leadership. Refined surfaces and

Defense - Glare off
of reflective surfaces decreases depth perception, reduces visual acuity, and
causes eye fatigue. Smith Optics Polarized eyewear uses the highest quality
polarized film in the world to filter out 99.9% of this visual static for
maximum glare-free comfort. Exactingly pre-shaped in the manufacturing process
and precisely aligned in the lenses, Smith polarized film is precisely aligned
and pre-shaped in the manufacturing process so that it perfectly matches the
curvature of their lenses when installed. Each Smith Optics Polarized lens is in
fact two thin wafers of either Techlite glass or Carbonic lens material between
which this high-grade polarized film is fitted, protecting it from the elements
and ensuring distortion free polarization.
- Crisp, brilliant optical acuity in an ultra lightweight glass lens. Smith
Optics Techlite Glass Polarized lenses deliver the highest level of visual
clarity and scratch resistance with distortion-free performance.
Technology (TLT) -
Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively-curved lens
causing it to bend or distort an objects true size or position. Imagine looking
through a fish eye lens. What your eye normally sees, is stretched beyond
reality. Get the picture? Tapered Lens Technology corrects the distortion by
progressively tapering the lens from the optical center towards the out edges.
Light waves are thereby delivered straight to your eye resulting in zero
distortion and true optical clarity. What you see is what you get.
frame - Resilient,
tough and flexible. Grilamid is an exceedingly light and durable plastic that
will maintain its shape under any temperature changes.
8 Base Lens
Combining just enough head curve and optical centration to protect you from the
elements. The 8 base’s mellowed wrap angle keeps you looking chic. Take ‘em off
and you’re on your own.
