Polycarbonate material was originally made for uses on canopies covering fighter planes and then made its way into space on astronaut visors and space shuttle windshields. Today it is readily available to the public. It impact resistance makes the material extremely suitable for sports, industrial safety goggles, and children's eyewear.
The reason for polycarbonate lenses' impact resistance is because of its "softness". Softer materials will flex instead of fragment when met with great force. However, the property allows lenses to be scratched easily. Therefore, every single one of our polycarbonate lenses is multi-coated with hard coating that forms a protective layer around the lenses allowing the lenses to be free from scratches while retaining its impact resistant qualities.
Polycarbonate lenses inherently carries UV protection properties that blocks nearly 100% of the UV rays from entering the back of the retina.
