Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 04, 2012
ADS Sports Eyewear announced that they are dramatically expanding the limits of prescription motorcycle sunglasses. New digital surfacing equipment is used to recalculate the curve at every point on the back of a prescription lens. This technology eliminates the "fishbowl effect", traditionally associated with putting prescriptions on wrapped frames. The digital design recalculates the curve at every point on the back of the lens. It is in stark contrast to traditional, flatter prescription lenses that have the same curve all the way across the lens.
This breakthrough is allowing ADS Sports Eyewear to provide prescription motorcycle eyewear to thousands of motorcyclists who have historically had very few desirable options. Flatter frames allow air to swirl around behind the lens and can be uncomfortable when worn regularly under a full-faced helmet. These digital lenses are being mounted in many of the most popular motorcycle sunglasses including Panoptx 7Eye, Wiley-X and Oakley. These digital lenses are also compatible with the sought-after Oakley Wind Jacket. This is the first pair of prescription motorcycle sunglasses to feature both a removable padded eye seal and easily interchangeable lenses.
The digital technology is also a tremendous asset for motorcyclists who require a reading section on the bottom of their lenses. Digital progressive lenses provide a wider field of vision and do not stop abruptly at the end of the reading corridor. Progressive lenses for motorcyclists can be placed very low in the lens to allow a larger view of the road, while still allowing a clear view of the instrument panel.
This technology is also being utilized in sunglasses for golfers, bicyclists, runners, as well as other people living an active lifestyle. ADS Sports Eyewear is now using digital lens surfacing in all their wrapped prescription sunglasses. These digital prescription lenses are a major game-changer in any sport, but for motorcyclists this distortion-free field of vision is not just a luxury; it is a life saver.
ADS Sports Eyewear is located in the North Dallas area, and has been specializing in prescription sunglasses for over ten years.
