Mirrored lenses are one of the most popular choices for prescription and non-prescription sunglasses alike. They lend a unique style to your lenses, and help protect your eyes from UV rays.
Curious to learn more about how mirrored lenses work, and if they’re right for you? You’re in the right place. Keep reading, and find out everything you wanted to know about mirrored lenses.
Mirrored lenses use a traditional tint, as well as a specialized reflective optical coating, known as a mirror coating. This coating decreased the amount of light that passes through the lenses by 10-60%.
Typically, mirrored lenses use several different coatings and are used alongside other anti reflective coatings. A small, reflective film of metal is typically deposited first, and then other plastic coatings are used to protect it and decrease glare, providing a mirror like finish.
