Sport Solution Tints


Today, around a third of our leisure activities involve the great outdoors, from walking to the more extreme sports.

When practising sport, 80% of the information we collect comes from our eyes.

Many sport require quick reactions which rely on perfect vision, so the right choice of visual equipment is essential Essilor is well aware of these needs and changing lifestyles and has developed Sports SOL-utions.


Essilor’s Sports SOL-utions tints all comply with European standards regarding road signals. They filter out blue light without distorting the perception of colour and the wearer won’ experience any loss of information of visual fatigue.

By filtering blue light, visual contrast is improved and visual acuity is increased.


Some sporting activities are carried out in conditions where reflected light on horizontal surfaces reduces visual comfort and can even become a hazard. Polarising filters have been used to improve visual comfort whenever glare is a problem.
