Lens Guide

While the focus of Flying Eyes mission is frames that fit comfortably and seamlessly under headsets and helmets, they also make sure that they are offering quality lenses that are safe, clear, and true to colour.

Flying Eyes strive to provide lenses with excellent clarity without sacrificing durability or colour accuracy. Glass tends to be fragile, so they use shatterproof polycarbonate for all of their lenses.

All of their lenses are made of shatter resistant polycarbonate and are 100% UVA/UVB blocking (even the clear and yellow tints).

Gradient Gray

With a standard tint in the middle, a darker tint to block harsh sunlight at the top, and a lighter tint to make your panel/dashboard more visible, gradient lenses are a popular choice for pilots and drivers. The gray hue provides undisturbed color vision while blocking visible light.

Solid Gray

Slightly lighter than standard sunglasses with a high contrast, neutral gray tint.

VLT: 14.77%

Dark Solid Gray

A darker solid gray tint with a lower visible light transmittance. more similar to a standard sunglass tint.

Gradient Copper

With a standard tint in the middle, a darker tint to block harsh sunlight at the top, and a lighter tint to make your panel/dashboard more visible, gradient lenses are a popular choice for pilots and drivers. The copper/amber hue provides a reduction in visible light without the darkness of a gray tint.

G15 (Neutral Green)

Commonly used in the military, this subtle green lens provides solid tinting with minor effect to color vision.

VLT: 15%
(Fun Fact: This VLT is what gives the G15 its name!)

This lens looks similar to the gradient copper lenses from the inside, and thus allows more visible light penetration than gray lenses.

VLT: 12.65%

VLT: 13.37%

Polarized Solid Copper

When you don’t have a glass panel to worry about, polarized copper lenses can block glare off the road or water. The copper tint allows for a higher light transmittance than a gray lens to make sure you can see in lower-light conditions.
