Lazer Introduces Vision Sunglasses Line


Lazer’s new Vision sunglass line came about from their desire to “protect everything from the neck up.”

It consists of four performance models, (top to bottom) the Solid-State, Electron, Argon and a budget offering called Xenon, and one lifestyle/fashion model called the Quantum.

All use polycarbonate lenses and Grilamid frames. The sport models have rubber nose and temple pads to grip your face during activity. The three upper end performance models come with three interchangeable lenses (yellow, clear and a dark lens with various plain and mirrored gray lenses depending on model) and are priced from $70 and $80. There are photochromic lens options for all three that run $90 to $95 and drop down to just 12% light transmission at their darkest. All lenses are 100% UVA/UVB, and the photochromic lenses have a synthetic Melanin injected into the lens that blocks the blue UV400 wavelength which is what causes optical blurring and haziness. It also equates to SPF 400, so your peepers get extra protection. All three come with a hard case and cleaning bag.

The Xenon and Quantum come with a single fixed lens for $40 and $50 respectively and come with a cleaning bag.

There are no polarized options planned for the Performance shades because, as Vision product designer Brian Kee says, the polarization removes all the glare, which is easy on the eyes, but makes it harder to pick up on small undulations in the road.
