Type de lentilles

Les lunettes de soleil de qualité offrent une lentille polarisée. Toutes les lunettes de soleil BREED sont polarisées et nous utilisons le procédé polarisé Triacetate Cellulose (TAC). Le processus TAC utilise une production multicouche.

Les lentilles polarisées ont l'avantage de filtrer la lumière réfléchie et l'éblouissement de l'eau, de la chaussée et de la neige. Les lentilles polarisées TAC sont supérieures pour la pêche, le canotage, la conduite ou toute autre activité intense. Les verres polarisés TAC sont les meilleurs moyens d'éliminer l'éblouissement et la lumière UV. La polarisation est obtenue en fermant à 100% la lumière indésirable et en laissant 100% de la lumière désirée à travers les lentilles.

Le composite multicouche est conforme aux normes internationales de lentilles de lunettes de soleil et aux verres de lunettes UV UV400 standard. Ainsi, les lentilles polarisées peuvent protéger pleinement les yeux. La première couche est une couche polarisante; noyau de la lentille car il fournit plus de 99% de l'effet polarisant, ce qui peut une absorption efficace de l'éblouissement. Deuxième et troisième couche pour le collage, peut résister efficacement à la coupe, la cuisson, le cintrage, les pièces coupées, les tests de résistance aux environnements difficiles. La quatrième et la cinquième couche pour la couche absorbant les UV; absorbant 99% des rayons UV-ultraviolets. Les couches restantes offrent une protection antichoc puisque les couches augmentent la résistance, la résistance aux chocs, empêchent les rayures de l'objectif et prolongent la durée de vie des lentilles polarisées

Les couches de protection

Les lentilles produites par TAC sont ultra-légères et résistent très bien aux chocs.

Les lentilles de lunettes de soleil polarisées TAC sont efficaces pour couper la lumière forte, la réflexion et la lumière diffusante. Cela fait que les rayons lumineux deviennent parallèles. Les lentilles polarisées TAC rendent le paysage plus clair et plus doux. Les lunettes de soleil BREED n'ont aucune distorsion de décor et la sensation de vertige.

 

Type de Charnières

Charnières en tonneau

Le type le plus commun de charnières que vous rencontrerez sont des charnières en tonneau. Ces charnières fonctionnent de la même manière que les charnières de portes et sont l'un des plus anciens types de charnières trouvés sur les lunettes. Les charnières standard sont constituées de canons qui s'emboîtent les uns dans les autres comme une fermeture à glissière avec une petite vis qui glisse au milieu pour maintenir les canons en place. Cela permet aux branches d'entrer et de sortir tout en les maintenant fermement attachées à l'avant du cadre.

Barrel Hinges

Charnières flexibles

Le deuxième type le plus commun de charnières que vous rencontrerez sont les charnières à ressort (ou charnières flex). Ces charnières sont équipées d'un petit ressort qui offre aux bras une plus grande liberté de mouvement et ne les limite pas à l'angle traditionnel de 90 degrés. Ces charnières fournissent un plus grand confort pour le porteur et sont plus capables de résister à un usage quotidien.

Flex Hinges

Considération importante pour les charnières:

Les charnières sur les yeux sont souvent négligées. La charnière qui relie le cadre au bras est extrêmement importante pour la vie des lunettes. Les gens ont tendance à regarder le design, la qualité de la lentille et l'apparence cosmétique du visage. Cependant, si la qualité de la charnière est douteuse, la valeur des verres est limitée. BREED utilise toujours des charnières en acier inoxydable de haute qualité. Nous voulons assurer une utilisation de longue date de nos montures de lunettes.

Glossaire des Cadres de lunettes

A

Acrylic plastic lens:
a lightweight and inexpensive lens option.
Anti-reflective (AR) coating:
a thin coating applied to lenses in order to reduce the amount of reflected light and glare that reaches your eye, as well as the amount of glare visible to others looking at your lenses.
Aviator:
a style of sunglasses made popular by pilots that typically have a metal frame, top bar, and large, tinted lenses. Think Maverick in Top Gun. Click here to shop our selection of aviators!

B

Base tint:
a dye embedded in sunglass lenses that creates the color you see when you look at the backside of your shades.
Bridge:
the area that arches up between the lenses over the nose and supports the majority of the weight of the glasses.
Browline:
retro sunglasses with a heavy browline and thin lower rims. Celebrities like Bruno Mars and Robert Pattinson are often seen sporting this style.

C

Carbon fiber:
a distinct material used for sunglass frames that is very strong and hard to adjust. Carbon fiber sunglasses are ideal for both the adventurous and the accident-prone.
Case:
a hard protective box that fits to standard sunglasses size and is intended to keep your glasses from being scratched, bent, broken, or sat on.
Cat eye:
a retro feminine sunglass style that is distinguished by its upswept outer edges. Popular with 1950s style icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, modern day celebs, and anyone who wants to feel like a celebrity?
Clip on:
sunglass lenses that clip (or attach) onto your prescription eyeglasses and provide protection from the sun.
Coating:
a treatment applied to the surface of your lens to provide additional protection, utility, or style.
  • Anti-reflective coating reduces the amount of distracting reflections bouncing off of your lenses. This type of coating is often applied to curved lenses.
  • Hydrophobic coating acts as a waterproofing shield by sheliing water and sweat that your sunglasses may encounter. This also reduces spotting that may otherwise occur on the lens surface.
  • Mirrored coating gives lenses the appearance of a mirror and can help reduce glare and bright light.
  • Scratch-resistant coating helps prevent polycarbonate and other plastic lenses from scratching.
  • Photochromic coating automatically darkens and lightens the tint of your lenses when the light changes.

D

Diopter:
the unit of a lens’s refractive power, equal to the reciprocal of the lens’s focus length in meters. Used as a measurement to prescribe corrective lenses.
Driving sunglasses:
a style of sunglasses designed to decrease eye strain on drivers thanks to lenses that reduce glare and enhance the driving experience.

E

Earpiece:
the plastic covering encasing the portion of the frames that rests on top of the ear and provides additional comfort. Most commonly seen on metal frames.
Endpiece:
the part of the frame that connects the lenses to the temples.

F

Fit overs:
these sunglasses are for people who already wear corrective lenses. They’re larger than your regular glasses so they can be worn right over them.

Peripheral vision:
the edges of your visual field.
Polarized lenses:
lenses with a special coating that increase visibility by filtering out horizontally-reflected glare. While useful for everyone, polarized lenses are especially beneficial for senior citizens, diabetics, those with sensitive eyes, or anyone who spends hours in the sun or snow. Teens and children under 18 should also jump on the polarized lens trend to protect their eyes.
Polycarbonate:
an extremely strong plastic used for sunglass frames that weighs little and is impact-resistant, making it an ideal selection for those who need a tough and rugged style.

R

Reading sunglasses:
a style of glasses that combine the power of reading glasses with the protection of sunglasses, making them the perfect style for outdoor reading.
