We all know the feeling: suddenly your view is limited and obstructed due to rapidly changing light conditions. However, perfect vision is crucial. Only with good visibility do you have a situation under control. Good visibility often determines success or failure, and in extreme situations, even life and death. All the situations described have one thing in common, they arise because the human eye cannot adapt quickly to changing lighting conditions. Is it still appropriate to protect oneself with conventional sunglasses in these dynamic and fast-paced times? The optrel sports development team says no.
The new optray sunglasses from optrel sports, with the unique ShadeTronic® Technology, are made for outdoor enthusiasts. The high-tech sunglasses are never too dark and never too bright. Thanks to intelligent sensor technology, they continuously adapt to changing light conditions in a fraction of a second. This guarantees the best view and your full control over the situation.

Beware of confusion: not all self-tinting is the same
The first so-called photochromic lenses appeared on the market as early as the 1960s. Molecules incorporated into the lenses trigger a chemical reaction through UV radiation, which causes the lenses to darken. The problem with photochromic lenses, however, is that the reaction time from light to dark takes up to one minute and from dark to light up to ten minutes. Many customers are then disappointed after buying photochromic glasses, because in many cases it is still necessary to change your glasses. In addition, these glasses do not work in the car, because the UV light is blocked by the windshield.
