The technology found in every pair of Revo sunglasses is designed to enable you, not limit you. Built with the most superior lens technology and highest-quality materials on earth. Designed with every environment in mind.


THE ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE LENS

Since its founding in 1985, Revo has been defined by its groundbreaking lens technology and innovation, the Revo Light Management System™, that gave the world sunglasses with the clearest and most advanced high-contrast polarized sunglasses available. Today, we continue to build on a rich tradition of technology and innovation.

Originally developed with NASA technology, Revo mirror coatings provide high-contrast viewing in ALL of our lenses – enriching the world we live in and producing a stunning visual performance for athletes, outdoor adventurists and everyday lifestyle wear.

HOW POLARIZED LENS TECHNOLOGY WORKS

lens technology

Polarization is a property of waves that can oscillate with more than one orientation. Electromagnetic waves such as light exhibit polarization. Light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water generally is horizontally polarized; our eyes perceive this light as glare.


REVO Polarized Lenses

All Revo sunglasses are polarized and provide 99% Polarization efficiency while blocking and managing UV and HEV light, delivering a superior visual experience and glare protection.

Polarized sunglasses eliminate glare and haze so your eyes are more comfortable and you can see better.

Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare.

Benefits – This blocking of the harshest reflected light allows a crisper field of view without the painful brightness that makes you squint and causes your eyes to water. This is critical for sports and activities that are conducted in and on reflective surfaces including sailing, boating, fishing, snow sports and driving.

High Contrast Polarization™: THE Definitive Visual Experience

Experience polarization like never before with sharp color contrast and crystal clear vision.

Revo High Contrast Polarized lenses provide outstanding visual acuity for a variety of performance applications and outdoor lighting conditions where sunlight can be harsh and reflection can distort vision. Revo HCP lenses selectively filter the color bands of the spectrum where the human eye is most sensitive to light and color, allowing all the ‘right light’ to come through while blocking and eliminating harmful or ‘bad light‘. Revo HCP lenses deliver vivid, clear, sharp-contrast images and superior vision resulting in THE Definitive Visual Experience. See the world that you’ve been missing.

In  addition to high-contrast polarization and 100% UV protection, every pair of Revo sunglasses comes with three standard lens coatings to achieve optimum visual clarity along with color and contrast enhancement.


MIRROR COATINGS

The Revo Light Management System™ (LMS) optimizes usable light that passes through the lens for specific environments and activities.

Revo has been and continues to be a pioneer in mirror and surface coatings. Based on the NASA technology used on space camera lens coatings, telescopes, satellite protection and space walks, Revo created the high tech, performance mirror coatings of today.

Often copied but never duplicated, Revo mirror coatings improve the visual performance of all our lenses. All Revo sunglasses come standard with mirror coatings from our Flash Sliver coatings to our dielectric Blue and Green coatings. Combine that with our proprietary lens materials and contrast lenses, Revo sunglasses deliver the finest in optics and visual performance.

BACK SURFACE PROTECTION

A combination of protective filters and coatings that help reduce intrusive back surface reflections. Our proprietary BSP Coating delivers clear, sharp images and less eye strain.

SURFACEPRO™: SEALED IN PROTECTION

Revo SurfacePro™ is a permanent coating that repels virtually anything that may come in contact with your Serilium™ lenses. Whether it’s water, oil, sweat, dirt, dust, ink or even a fingerprint, SurfacePro™ keeps your lenses clean and ready to perform in any condition. Be assured you are protected from the elements with SurfacePro™.

Every pair of Revo lenses begins with a mirror coating, high-contrast polarized lenses and LMS™ technology. This combination allows for the optimization of the best usable light that passes through the lens and provides outstanding performance for specific environments and activities.


THE HUMAN EYE WITHOUT PROTECTION

REVO LMS™ TECHNOLOGY

Next, we take clarity a step further with an anti-reflective coating to eliminate any unwanted light that bounces off the inside or back of the lens. Since Revo coatings have low internal reflectance, the light that passes through our lenses is pure and undisturbed by annoying reflections or ‘hot spots’ providing all you expect from The Original in performance sunglass products.


Revo sunglasses with LMS™ technology selectively manage blue light to provide clear sharp vision in all conditions and maximum protection for your eyes and against potentially harmful UV and HEV rays.

Revo sunglasses absorb UV rays AND HEV RAYS

UV-A

Exposure to UVA can hurt your central vision. It can damage the macula, a part of the retina at the back of your eye.

UV-B

The front part of your eye (the cornea and the lens) absorbs most UV-B rays, but these rays may cause even more damage to your eyes than UV-A rays.

UV-C

These rays are mostly absorbed by the atmosphere, but without protection, can cause eye damage.

HEV

High-energy visible light is high-frequency light that is indicated as a cause of age-related macular degeneration.

A great sunglass needs to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays but also deliver a great visual experience so you can enjoy the outdoors. All Revo sunglasses provide superior clarity with optically-correct lens performance; whether it is through Revo Serilium™ or Revo Crystal™ lenses, the world has never looked better or clearer.


Revo Serilium™ Lenses

A special formulation of polycarbonate, exclusive to Revo sunglasses that provide superior optics, impact-resistance and great overall vision and performance. Revo Serilium™ lenses use the finest optical-quality lens material and have strict manufacturing processes to avoid stress and limit birefringence.

  • Withstands high-velocity impact
  • Lightweight
  • Color and contrast enhancement

Revo Crystal™ Lenses

A higher form of Crown Glass, delivering outstanding optics and spectral performance. The Revo Crystal™ lens is ground and polished to about the same standard of a camera lens – the clearest optics available.

  • Scratch resistant
  • Color and contrast enhancement

BLOCKS

Harmful UVA, UVB, & UVC rays


Polycarbonates (PC)

Known by trademarked names like Lexan are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates are found in many applications, in particular, in sunglass and eyeglass lenses.

Polycarbonate is a durable material. Although it has high impact-resistance, it has low scratch-resistance and so a hard coating is applied to polycarbonate sunglass and eyeglass lenses.

Polycarbonate is highly transparent to visible light, with better light transmission than many types of other lenses.

Revo Serilium™ Lenses are a special formulation of polycarbonate, exclusive to Revo sunglasses that provide superior optics, impact resistance, durability with SurfacePro™ coatings and great overall performance.
