Prescription Sports Sunglasses are Thinner than ever with New Lenticular Free-Form Lens Design

Share Article

Prescription sports sunglasses are now available with a lens that is thinner than ever before. This Lenticular Free-Form lens design minimizes thickness by placing the prescription power only in the most usable portions of the lens.

Free-Form Lenticular Prescription Lens

The correction in a lenticular lens does not extend to the edge. This results in a much thinner lens.

Historically it was impossible for motorcyclists with severe prescriptions to wear the most popular motorcycle sunglasses. This new lenticular design solves this problem and creates a lens that is as stylish as it is functional.

Prescription Sports Sunglasses are now available with a new lens design that reduces lens thickness by up to 70%. This new lenticular free-form design will allow athletes with higher prescriptions to wear large wrapped sunglasses with a lens that is relatively thin.

ADS Sports Eyewear is one of the first companies to offer this updated version of the free-form digital lens design. The curve in a free-form lens is recalculated at every point on the lens surface. This creates a much larger field of vision that is in focus and there is no peripheral distortion that is referred to as the “fishbowl” effect. This free-form technology made it possible to have amazing clarity in wrapped sunglasses but it did not reduce the thickness of higher prescriptions. This latest improvement is a free-form lenticular design where the correction in the lens does not extend all the way to the outer edge. Most people can’t see this part of the lens so this has been a non-issue. This results in a lens that is 50% to 70% thinner.

Prescription Motorcycle Sunglasses have been significantly impacted by this new design. A wrapped design is required to protect motorcyclists from wind and debris. The lens thickness created by higher prescriptions in these large wrapped sunglasses has historically made it impossible for many motorcyclists with severe prescriptions to wear the most popular motorcycle sunglasses. This new lenticular design solves this problem and creates a lens that is as stylish as it is functional.

ADS Sports Eyewear has been selling prescription sports sunglasses for over 10 years and can answer any questions regarding new Lenticular Free-Form lens technologies. This new lenticular lens option is obtainable in all of the sports sunglasses available from ADS Sports Eyewear.
