With the increasing requests for sport eyewear, manufacturers have put aside additional capital for the testing of sport specific products, together in the industry and out in the field. The result has been product enhancements specifically addressing the concerns of athletes. Eyewear manufacturers are able to reproduce circumstances such as wind, rain, cold and heat to conclude the short-term and long-term effects these elements can have on the performance and lifespan of their goods.

In the past, clear eyewear was enough. In bright light conditions, polarized sunwear was enough. This is no longer true. Today our lives are strongly influenced by the automobile, which has changed the way we experience the outdoors. We need a third category of lenses in our modern, automobile-centered world.
