Lens Features//
 
Hydrogen-fueled lehr furnaces activate each lens with our photochromic and spectral control technologies, with varying high temperatures determining the proprietary lens color.
A full 20% thinner and lighter, our ultra-light glass lens is the most optically superior lens on the market. Serengeti glass lenses are made from only the finest materials—providing unsurpassed visual acuity.
 

ULTRA-LIGHT GLASS LENS

POLAR PHD™ lens

 
Our glass lenses begin with borosilicate optical glass from Corning,® which can withstand extreme temperature changes. The lenses are chemically tempered to ensure scratch and impact resistance, then ground to perfection.

The lenses then undergo Serengeti’s ® Hydrogen Firing Process, which activates the photochromic and Spectral Control® technologies. After the lenses cool, they are treated with a unique coating that protects their edges, all while being monitored by a technician who examines every lens by hand to ensure the highest quality.

Staying true to Serengeti’s commitment to craftsmanship, we give unparalleled attention to detail throughout every phase of the lens-making process.
Drivers®
The amber-colored Drivers lens is particularly well suited for driving. That’s because it enhances colors and contrast, lightening and darkening for optimal light transmission in any driving condition. It’s also engineered to transmit more red, yellow and green colors, making it ideal for identifying stoplights. And thanks to its ability to relax your eye muscles, the Drivers lens helps reduce stress and fatigue while driving. Available in non-polarized and polarized ultra-light glass and Polar PhD™lenses.

Drivers Gradient
The Drivers Gradient lens is darker at the top and lighter at the bottom, a feature designed to block glare from above to provide a clear view of the dashboard below. Drivers Gradient is the preferred choice of pilots as they can see detail at great distance while easily scanning the instruments in front of them.

555NM®
The 555nm lens gets its name from the 555 nanometer center of the visible color spectrum of light, the point where the human eye sees the easiest and most comfortably. Ideal for bright light conditions, the photochromic 555nm lens manages yellow and green light transmission to cool and relax the eyes. The light silver mirror coating further reduces eyestrain by acting as a protective shield against glare. Available in non-polarized and polarized ultra-light glass and Polar PhD lenses.
