1-It does not "have to have anti- reflective" as most of the sunglasses wearing world gets along fine without. That is your first lie. The idea that there is even an urgent need for anti-reflective in a single lens non-magnifying pair of sunglasses is absurd.
2-"7x more comfort"? You have got to think people are complete idiots here. Not only is this a ridiculous claim, but I love the "ghost images" thing! Are you saying that when you are wearing regular polarized sunglasses with no AR on them, you see 'dead people'? Frikin absolutely hilarious
. So you get off at least one more lie, while the other one could possibly be citing a BS marketing study. Thus for that one, you get off with maybe only exaggeration, but more likely you know you are citing someone else's lie.
3-And polarized lenses do not eliminate 100% of the blinding glare. They only eliminate the "blinding glare" in the same plane as the polarization. That is your 3rd lie. And this is where we get into why many of us who have enjoyed the benefits of polarized glasses in other outdoor sports, have found polarized sunglasses to be a liability in the waves.
4-And here is another dose of reality! Prescription eyeglasses, ACTUAL PRESCRIPTION EYEGLASSES
, cost less than the stuff you are peddling. And if you look up prescription eye-wear frames, they are one of the highest markup consumer purchases as well. So you are telling me that for a few pieces of plastic, not even customized for my vision, I NEED to pay $200 because......um......muh....coatings?
5-I have got to say that you actually are somehow leading on a few forum participants here. Some seem to be swallowing your "marketing" tactics. I have done what I can, but in the end, it is up to them to decide whether to blow $200 while desperately trying to convince themselves that they did the right thing, or wake up and realize that high end sunglasses are a complete waste of money.
"The backside of dark lenses will act as a mirror to the person wearing the sunglasses and they will have to fight all the ill effects that those reflections causes "
This actually applies to any lenses... even your clear ElCheapos....but with tinted lenses the darker the tint the worst it gets
Clear lenses usually gets both sides with AR...sun lenses can also be made with 2 sided AR but it is mostly done only on the backside only with mirror on the frontside
Matt don't be afraid of no ghost !!
Yes the whole world would see sooooo much better if all their sunglasses had backside anti-reflective
Water spots would be sooooooo much less bothersome to the viewer
Veil of reflected glare from the back surface would not exist
Ghost images is caused by light trapped between front and back surfaces of lenses bouncing back and forth inside
With back-AR it's 7 times more comfortable to look through the lenses
Read again..."reflected" glare...100% of "reflected "glare is what i wrote....it is implied that it means " horizontal "....not vertical....not diagonal
Wrong about prescriptions...so wrong
Buy single vision Digital HD polarized wrap lenses ( with a compensated RX and base in prism ) with Hydro Oleo Hardcoated Back-AR
It is around $350
RX made by many places also warranty those high end lenses for 2 years 2 times to not scratch included in the price
Ansi Z87.1 wrap safety frames are around $85 ....SPY and WILEY-X as examples....they are sold at that price with clear or just tinted lenses non-polarized
Lenses can just come out to have the RX put in
Progressives lenses ( when you get old enough presbyopia kicks in) so you can read you pump gauge...you cell phone....just add around $200 to the cost of single vision
You can do so much more.... or just admit that i know what i'm talking about
When you pay top dollars for sunglasses that has all the features needed for ultimate clarity kitesurfing / kiteboarding / foilboarding it is worth it
Oh Deer !! Slow down Matt
