Serengeti Technology. What's behind the lens.
With Serengeti, makers of the world's finest sunglasses and the world's best driving sunglasses, each lens and every temple holds some of the most innovative technology in sunglasses. In the lenses you'll find Spectral Control, photochromic, blue light filtering and of course all the style of the riviera as standard with Serengeti sunglasses. There's expert polarisation too.
These technical qualities combined make Serengeti naturally suited to driving and aviation.
What's In a Lens?
Serengeti's Lenses - See Things Differently
As the Serengeti lens automatically adjusts to light conditions eye strain is greatly reduced. If it's polarised lenses you want Serengeti offers Drivers Polarised, 555nm, Polarised, Sedona Polarised and PolarMax lens options.
As the name suggests this brown lens is perfect for driving, bringing you brilliant contrast and improving your road experience.
With its versatile brown lens, Serengeti's Drivers Polarised lens performs brilliantly under cloudy or extreme light conditions - and it's polarised. there's 18% transmittance in the lightened lens and 10% transmittance darkened lens. 93% of blue light is blocked in the lightened lens and 96% blue light is blocked in the darkened lens.
Ideal for those who love things high in the sky. The Driver's Gradient lens is perfect for aviation with its exceptional clarity and crystal-clear view. There's 24% transmittance in the lightened lens and 9% transmittance in the darkened lens. 84% blue light blocked in the lightened lens while 95% of blue light is blocked in the darkened lens.
555nm and 555nm Polarised
555 nanometers is the centre of the visible colour spectrum of light on the border between yellow and green. It is this point in the spectrum where the human eye sees the easiest and most comfortably. 555nm lens provides outstanding contrast and definition in all light conditions. It maximizes the transmission of yellow and green at 555 nanometers.
Polar PhD Lenses
Serengeti's award winning Polar PhD lenses with their advanced polarising surface technology cut out the glare but still allow for the reading of electronic devices and dashboard instruments too. This often where other polarised lenses have problems. This lens is so advanced it won the coveted Silmo D'Or eyewear award for innovation and performance, the first for a sunglasses manufacturer.
A dynamic hi-definition lens system that works with your eyes to selectively block and filter light wave lengths. By allowing more red, green and yellow to pass through the lens, the wearer is able to distinguish traffic signals and hazards quicker and better.
What is Blue Light?
Blue light waves cause a unique set of vision problems. These shorter wavelengths cross in front of the retina and can’t be properly focused by your eyes, creating a phenomenon know as blue blur. Blue light waves are responsible for veiling glare as they scatter off dust and moisture particles in the air. Serengeti lenses block and filter 95% of blue light, virtually eliminating blue blur and the eye strain and fatigue it can cause. Spectral Control blocks this blue light.
Serengeti - In the Beginning
Serengeti glass is the secret behind the lenses. Serengeti glass was invented by Corning. It's been used for years, simply because there's been nothing like it since its invention. The company originally wanted to enter the car windscreen market with a patented glass that selectively filtered all colours except for the traffic light colours of red, yellow, and green and their objective was to produce a safety windscreen that would allow the driver to see and react to driving hazards more quickly. Unfortunately, any degree of light filtration is not suitable in a car windscreen at night. So while you can’t remove your windscreen at night, you can remove sunglasses and so the Serengeti line of eyewear was born.
The first pair of Serengeti sunglasses hit the market in the 1980s.
Serengeti was also the first to offer photochromic sunglasses lenses and pioneered this technology. There are other products have a glass, photochromic lens with an anti-reflective coating, however none have Serengeti’s exclusive Spectral Control filters. Every Serengeti lens has it and only Serengeti has it. The photochromic and Spectral Control filters found in Serengeti’s glass lenses are actually molecularly engineered into the glass itself, therefore, it will never wear off or wear out. A Serengeti lens improves contrast, reduces eye fatigue and increases definition and comfort as they help fine tune your vision.
Each and every Serengeti lens is photochromic, which means they adjust to the light as required. Serengeti is among the most advanced in the field.
