Photochromic lenses are light knowledgeable optical lenses that darken on exposure to specific types of light of sufficient intensity, most commonly ultraviolet (UV) radiation. An added benefit of photochromic lenses is that they shield your eyes from 100 percent of the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays. They typically take around 30 seconds to fully darken and approx 2 - 5 minutes to return to a golden state. They Change So You Don't Have To™
The warm transparency of Hunters HD Gold® was designed to offer contrast and clarity to the viewer by bringing all colors into the eye's most comfortable range of light. This gives the shooter 30 minutes more visible light in the morning and the evening. The golden color helps with night blindness, macular degeneration and SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Hunters HD Gold blocks 100% UVA, UVB and Blue Light. Hunters HD Gold® is healthy for your eyes.
Anti-reflective coating (also called "AR coating" or "anti-glare coating") improves vision and reduces eye-strain. These benefits are due to the ability of AR coating to virtually eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of your eyeglass lenses. With reflections gone, more light passes through your lenses to optimize visual acuity with fewer distractions. This, combined with the hard coat allows the lens to be more scratch/dust resistance than uncoated lenses.
Each Hunters HD Gold® lens is made one at a time with exceptionally accurate and error-free surface quality with a proprietary optical lens generator. This process with 4 point quality inspections processes ensure each lens is made with precise optical detail. Hunters HD Gold is made in Alabama and supporting Alabama Veterans and Families.
All OSHA-approved prescription and non-prescription safety glasses must have markings specified by the ANSI Z87+1-2015 standard on both the lenses and the frame of the eyewear. Hunters HD Gold is rated and tested at ANSI Z87+1-2015 which gives you protection of .25" steel ball traveling at 150 fps. Hunters HD Gold® Rx use Z87+2 Safety Frames as well.
Each pair of Hunters HD Gold® comes with Z-Clear. Apply a small amount with your finger, rub it in the lens until it completely dries (similar to wax on paint), and wipe off with a microfiber or cotton cloth. For this product to work most effectively, it must be reapplied every three to five days or every time you clean your lenses. The more you use Z-clear the better it will work.
