The human eye is highly sensitive to glare, particularly in traffic where the lighting conditions frequently change. The lights from oncoming cars cause us ‘momentary blindness’. During that state of blindness, millions of rods and cones in our retinas are overexposed. That blindness reduces our concentration, which significantly slows down our reaction time. Besides momentary blindness, nyctalopia or night-blindness is also a danger to you and to traffic safety.
Formula Drive overcomes this night-blindness and guarantees you better safety and more driving pleasure.
The Formula Drive lens is a symbiosis or correlation of three intrinsic parameters:
- The material (plastic) of the lens contains a UV filter. This filter blocks up to 420 nm of harmful blue UV light.
- On the front, we use the i-Protection blue GT (anti-glare technology). The i-Protection blue reflects the blue light and enhances contrast and it greatly improves color vision
- On the back we use low-flex-coating. This coating prevents light rays entering from the side (due to glare) so that they do not reach our eyes.
- Formula Drive is available for just about every single-vision or progressive lens design.
This lens is also a great solution for people with cataracts, people who are sensitive to light (after surgery) and others. The lens is made of the same materials as the care lenses. The difference is the coating. We use iProtection blue Glare technology for Formula Drive, which enhances contrast and improves color vision.
