Designed for high level light and direct sunshine; polarized lenses block out glare without dimming your entire field of vision – they increase the contrast that you can lose with tinted lenses. Ideal for outdoor swimming.
Designed for outdoor/open water swimming and triathlons, where the sun can go in and out. These excellent lenses actually react to the light and automatically adjust to changing light conditions. They darken in bright light and becoming lighter again in low light. Photochromatic goggles help to reduce eye fatigue with their reactive lenses.
