Eschenbach Optik of America, Inc. has introduced its new Asensys® filters which are a line of contrast-enhancing eyewear designed to either fit over patients’ prescription glasses or be worn alone and provide all-round protection against the sun and unpleasant glare. This unique tinted eyewear is available in 4 colors including Yellow, Orange, Dark Orange and Red, with cut-off transmissions of 450 nm, 511 nm, 527 nm and 550 nm (which is a new tint not offered before in any of their other absorptive filter lines!). 

The Asensys® lenses are distortion-free and made of lightweight CR-39 optical quality material. Each color is available in both polarized and non-polarized versions, giving the patient the option of having a polarized lens to protect the eyes during outdoor activies where the glare may be stronger. The eyewear come in two frame sizes, XL small and XL large, each of which provides top shield coverage above the eyes and side shields on the temples to maximize the amount of protection from glare coming from different angles. 

All of the Asensys® filters provide 100% UV protection, which helps minimize eye damage from harmful UV rays, and block up to 100% of blue light, depending on the tint. These unique filters are also prescription correctable to allow for the patient to have their prescription added to the lens with the tint of their choice, providing the ability to wear one pair of glasses instead of two. A hard protective case is also provided with each pair of filters for safe storing while not in use. Check them out at
