Xperio® Sun Lenses

What are the benefits of Xperio polarized sun lenses?

Xperio polarized sun lenses eliminate dangerous glare—even dashboard glare—for greater driving safety, and they let you see even the smallest things with greater clarity, true colour perception, and total comfort. And unlike regular sunglasses, they also virtually eliminate glare, allowing you to see more clearly and comfortably outdoors. That’s one parameter you shouldn’t forget when choosing your next pair of sunglasses.


What is the difference between Xperio polarized and Xperio tinted sun lenses?

Xperio tinted lenses reduce glare and brightness, offering immediate visual well-being in the sun, but only Xperio polarized lenses eliminate dangerous and blinding glare, offering excellent visual comfort, better clarity of vision, and true colour perception.


What are the different Xperio sun lenses colour and mirror options?

Xperio sun lenses come in a wide variety of colours, mirrors, and styles, and fit into your choice of frames for a personalised look.

What is polarized light?

Light is emitted in waves by the sun or by artificial sources like a light bulb. These waves vibrate and travel in all directions from the source. This “flattened” light is known as “polarized light.” When light bounces off a shiny surface, it can become polarized and enter the eye, causing a blinding effect.

Are Xperio prescription sun lenses heavier or thicker than regular sun lenses?

The coating that delivers the exceptional performance of Xperio prescription sun lenses is very thin—thinner than a strand of hair. The actual thickness and weight of your glasses is a function of the lens material and prescription.

CLEANING MY LENSES

How do I clean my Xperio sun lenses?

The best way to clean your lenses is by first rinsing your lenses under warm, running water to remove any sandy/gritty debris, then cleaning with a mild liquid dishwashing soap to remove facial oils, rinsing with water, and drying with a soft cotton cloth. Finish by polishing your lenses with the microfiber cleaning cloth provided to you by your eyecare professional. You can also use the cloth for touch-up cleaning throughout the day when it is not convenient to wash the lenses.


How do I clean my cleaning cloth?

Cleaning cloths can be washed on the gentle cycle in the washer or hand-washed. We recommend that you do not use any laundry additives (such as fabric softener) which could leave a residue on the cloth. Ask your eyecare professional about purchasing additional cleaning cloths, if needed.


Can I use alcohol to clean my lenses?

Occasional use of alcohol on Xperio sun lenses will not be harmful. However, we do not recommend daily use of alcohol.


What do I do if I have hair spray or paint on my lenses?

If you cannot remove the hair spray with a mild detergent soap and running water, we recommend taking your lenses to your eyecare professional for evaluation and removal of the hair spray or paint from your lenses.


Can I use a lens cleaner?

Any commercially prepared lens cleaner formulated to be used with anti-reflective lenses can be used with Xperio sun lenses.
