The Wonderful World of Serengeti Drivers Gradient Lenses

Serengeti sunglasses are a unique product designed specifically with pilots and drivers in mind.

They were invented to help both pilots and drivers read their instruments and see the world in perfect clarity. The way it works is the lens is darker at the top and lighter at the bottom.

The goal is to protect your eyes from the windscreen above while providing a clear view of the instruments below.

Polarized or Non-Polarized?

For pilots non-polarized Drivers Gradient lenses are the preferred choice.

This allows the pilot to see other aircraft at a great distance without obscuring the view of  the flight instruments below.

The amber colored Drivers lenses are ideal for flying and driving because they enhance color and contrast.

Mineral Glass Photochromic Lenses

Serengeti glass lenses are ultra lightweight making the sunglasses comfortable to wear and removing pressure on your nose.

The lenses are also photochromic, which means the lenses will lighten or darken depending upon the amount of UV light rays striking the lenses.

This means the VLT (Visible Light Transmittance) of the lens will change providing the perfect light transmission in any lighting conditions.
