Smith Optics: Dockside

From Smith Optics:

With its long-standing commitment and dedication to the fishing community, Smith is excited to introduce the new Dockside sunglasses with ChromaPop™ polarized lenses. Always striving to up the ante on optics and fit, Smith created the new fishing-specific frame with the avid waterman in mind, utilizing the most scientifically advanced lenses on the market.

Debuting at the upcoming ICAST/IFTD Show in Orlando, Florida in mid-July, the new Dockside is a large fitting frame that provides superior coverage from sun reflection on and off the water. Crafted in Italy, the 8-base wrap design eliminates side glare while retaining a wide field of view. The frames are complemented with our award-winning ChromaPop lenses that are engineered to optimize color and increase visual clarity by blocking light wave intersections that create color confusion for the brain, ultimately enabling you to recognize true color, faster. The result: increased depth and detail of objects, while reducing eye fatigue.

Constructed of Trivex material – a premium lens offering in the optical market – ChromaPop lenses provide the durability, impact resistance and lightweight properties of polycarbonate and the optical clarity of glass. ChromaPop is available in 6 proprietary lens tints: the new Polar Blue Mirror, the new Polar Bronze Mirror, Polarchromic Ignitor, Polar Brown, Polar Gray Green and Polar Platinum offerings for unmatched visual clarity on the water in any conditions.

Ideal for medium to bright light conditions, the new Bronze Mirror lens create a color enhanced visual experience through intensified reds, blues, and greens for almost 3D-like visuals. Designed for the serious offshore waterman seeking to cut glare in bright light conditions and maximize fish spotting opportunities in open water environments, the new Blue Mirror lens produces enhanced visuals amplifying colors in their natural state.

All ChromaPop lenses provide 100% protection from harmful UVA/B/C rays with film-free polarization, and feature Anti-Reflective (A/R) mirror coating to eliminate back-glare and hydroleophobic coating to repel water, dirt, and grease. For those seeking additional visual assistance, ChromaPop lenses are also offered in a Sun RX solution.
