The Vuarnet Mirror Flash lens: Other than the aesthetic aspect, the mirror flash lens acts by reflecting and filtering the light more efficiently. It guarantees you maximum comfort in very bright conditions.
Vuarnet Polarized lenses: bring optimum color definition and greater eye comfort against glare from reflections. All our frames equipped with polarized mineral glass always carry the symbol “P”: Grey Polar, Blue Polar, Blue Polarlynx and Brown Polar are available.

AGAINST GLARE AND REFLECTIONS
- Brand signature, our exclusive bi-shaded mirror treatment guarantees maximum protection against glare and reflections.
AGAINST UNWANTED REFLECTIONS and INFRA-RED
- Vuarnet lenses are the only ones in the world designed to absorb up to 94% of infra-red rays protecting your eyes from heat and dry eye.
- The lenses also benefit from an anti-reflection treatment inside of the lens, eliminating all unwanted reflections.

We perform detailed and complete testing procedures on both lenses and frames.
Three tests are performed on the lens during the manufacturing process:
- Inspection of the polished glass quality; individual check of the glass polishing.
- Shock resistance measurement by ball-test; a ball weighing 16 grams is dropped from a height of 1.27 m onto the lens to test its shock resistance.
- Inspection of treated lenses, under specific lighting conditions to ensure that the glass has no scratches/imperfections.
Each frame is individually checked before the product is packaged.

On each product leaflet, we indicate the temple width (distance between your temples) and the frame size (S for Small, M for Medium or L for Large) in order to help you select the pair of sunglasses most suited for your face.
To figure out know the temple width of your face, use a ruler to measure the distance between the two horizontal screws of the arms on your current glasses. (If you have a fine/angular/large round, we recommend the size small/medium/large).
Size S refers to a temporal distance of 127-134 mm, size M to 130-163 mm and finally size L to 133-139 mm.
