What do you see? Since 1961 Smith has been helping people see their perfect world outside.
With such Smith sunglasses innovations as Techlite and Carbonic Lenses, Tapered Lens Technology and the Slider Series, Smith's patented interchangeable lens sunglasses, Smith remain the leader in creating sunglasses for those how insist upon seeing more. Form with function, Style with clarity. Mountains and lizards and waves, not glare, fog and distortions.
Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively curved lens causing them to refract. This refraction causes a prismatic effect, or distortion. Smith's Tapered Lens Technology (TLT) corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens thickness from the optical center toward the peripheral view. Light waves now travel directly to your eye to generate precise vision and reduce potential eye fatigue. Objects are clearly defined and seen in their exact position.
