I don’t love copying-and-pasting press releases, and I certainly don’t recall ever doing it for something as “simple” as sunglasses. However, having dealt with the difficulty (“first world problems” difficulty as it is) of trying to view all sorts of displays while wearing polarized sunglasses today just like I do nearly every day, I found this press release on the new GATORZ OPz Lenses quite interesting.
Copy-and-paste from GATORZ follows:
GATORZ Eyewear Introduces OPz Lenses
Optimized Polarized (OPz) for Digital Devices
Carlsbad, CA – (March 2022) – GATORZ Eyewear has changed the game in polarized eyewear, introducing the Optimized Polarized (OPz) Lens for digital devices.
Launching its OPz Lens, GATORZ is changing the way we interact with our digital displays while we are outdoors. The common problem that one has with polarized eyewear, like the lack of full visibility when using digital screens outdoors, is no longer an issue with the OPz lens.
Most all LCD screens that we use while we are outdoors already feature a polarized-filtered screen to reduce the glare that you receive while outside. When you wear standard polarized lenses and look at a polarized filter in a screen, they essentially cancel each other out, and the screen display is not visible.
See clearly when looking at:
Digital Displays (GPS, Gas Pump, Automotive Dash, Control Displays)
This optimized polarized technology provides the same glare reduction that a polarized lens offers, but allows full visibility of digital screens. No matter where you work, or what your hobbies may be, in today’s day and age, we find ourselves constantly using and relying on digital displays. GATORZ OPz lens offers those that require day usage of digital displays, to not sacrifice the glare reduction, while also allowing complete clarity beyond the screen.
Staying true to the GATORZ standard, the OPz eyewear is tested to protect your eyes and features high velocity impact resistant lenses, hydro-oleophobic coating for oil/grease repellant, UV protection and a scratch resistant hard coat.
GATORZ Optimized Polarized lenses are available in a wide selection of frame options, including, Delta, Specter, Magnum, Stark and Wraptor frame options.
American-made, and backed by a lifetime frame warranty, GATORZ frames are built from lightweight, durable, aircraft-grade billet 7075-T6 aluminum and are designed to provide excellent coverage. Both the frame and the nosepiece fully adjust to you, and not the other way around.
