These anti-glare glasses adapt to your frames and reduce glare

If you’ve ever driven at night, you know the pain of climbing a hill and having the headlights shoot you right in the eye. Being dazzled isn’t just uncomfortable, it can be actively dangerous. the Hawk Eye anti-glare glasses keep you safe on the road by reducing glare while letting light through.

As it gets darker, our pupils open to let in more light. When our eyes are suddenly flooded with light, our pupils constrict to filter it out. The repeated constriction and opening can be both physically painful and mentally exhausting, as your brain must constantly adapt to changing conditions. That’s part of the reason why the night is the most dangerous time to drive, even if fewer people are on the road. Reducing glare can make a big difference.

Hawk Eye glasses reduce glare with a special amber coating. Where sunglasses combine polarization, which blocks light at certain angles, with simple tinting in the lens to reduce overall light, anti-reflective lenses even out the intensity of light as it enters.

This means more light passes through, but the light is reduced in intensity, allowing a more even amount of light to enter your pupil. The yellow tint also attenuates the amount of high energy visible light (HEV light) which is more likely to cause glare.

They are also useful for outdoor sports, and not just for cutting glare from water. The yellow tint increases visual contrast to help you see detail, especially on gray days.

The glasses come with two types of frames. The half-circles are great for placing over your prescription glasses when needed, while the circle versions are great for people without glasses who want to reduce glare.
