LITE GRADIENT LENSES

SKYTEC™ GLASS

Our most popular lens material. Individually ground and polished to the exacting standards of a camera lens. The absolute clearest optics possible with maximum scratch-resistance.

SKYFORCE™

Combining light-weight comfort with outstanding optics in an advanced lens material that is 40% lighter than our glass lenses.

SKYFORCE AIR™ GRADIENT

A gradient finish is added to our SkyForce™ light-weight lenses: a darker tint at the top of the lens offers sun protection, while the lighter bottom is perfect for reading or viewing up-close objects.

THE SKYTEC™ DIFFERENCE

Lens technology with state-of-the-art protection and proprietary coatings.

icon-coating

Randolph VECTOR™ Optical Coating

Stops harmful glare from behind.

This proprietary multi-layer coating is applied to each lens to block harmful reflected light and ‘bounce-back’ glare from entering your eye from behind. VECTOR™ reduces eye-strain and improves visual acuity with the added benefit of built-in hydrophobic, anti-static, and scratch-resistant properties.

icon-blue-light

Randolph Blue Wave™ Technology

Filters damaging ‘blue light’ to preserve eye health.

With Blue Wave™ technology, each SkyTec™ lens reduces eye strain, improves sleep patterns and increases overall visual acuity. Our lenses protect your eyes from potentially harmful ‘blue’ and High Energy Visible (HEV) light, that can cause macular degeneration and eye damage.

icon-sun-uva

100% UVA/UVB Protection

Complete defense from harmful rays.

Our premium lenses act like sunblock for your eyes, blocking 100% of damaging UVA and UVB rays.

icon-lens-eye

SkyTec™ Glass lenses provide additional protection from Infrared Rays (commonly known as Heat Radiation or Heat Waves) that can potentially cause dry eye conditions or tired eyes.

icon-drop-ball

Tested to original military specs with a 5/8 inch steel ball.

Our SkyTec™ glass lenses were originally engineered to meet military standards, and to this day each batch of glass lenses is tested for impact resistance with a 5/8 inch steel ball from 50 inches.
