The Vuarnet high-tech mineral glass lenses and Lynx™️ Technology were invented by our co-founder, optician Roger Pouilloux in Paris.
The Lynx™️ Technology, through a bi-layered mirror treatment, offers the best protection from the sunlight directed to the sensitive upper part of the eyes and from the light reverberation to the lower part of the eyes and provides pure clarity. Industry experts say that Vuarnet mineral glass lenses are to optics what diamonds are to jewelry.
100% natural and recyclable, our mineral lenses are the result of decades of accumulated science and know-how, dedicated to our relentless, passionate efforts to produce the best lenses in the world. Today, 99.5% of the world’s sunglasses are made with polluting, low tech plastic. Vuarnet mineral lenses are made in our own factory near Paris, the last one producing mineral lenses in France, and one of the last three in the world.
Our lenses offer the highest level of eye protection, the highest definition and visual clarity. They are un-scratchable, ultra-resistant and timeless.
Skilynx™ technology is a special coating we apply to both sides of our mineral lenses to protect you from extreme lighting conditions. Skilynx™ lenses protect you from both the sun's rays and the reflection of light of the sun, especially on snow.
Skilynx™ lenses are ideal for mountaineering, even on a white day.
Blue Polarlynx™ technology is a combination of three treatments:
- The Lynx™
- Polarized film
- The oleophobic coating
This unique lens gives you the sharpest vision and maximum protection from the sun's strong rays and its reflection off the water. It also eliminates glare effects.
The Blue Polarlynx™ mineral lens is ideal for all types of water sports.
Tailored for the night, the Nightlynx™ Category 1 mineral lens provides enhanced vision in low-light conditions. It significantly improves contrast and distance perception. Nightlynx™ mineral lenses are ideal for driving at night, or in rain or fog.
This lens also filters out 100% of harmful blue light and helps reduce glare effects.
