Pass on Gas Station Sunglasses

Pass on Gas Station Sunglasses

We get it, when it comes to convenience store sunglasses, the price can’t be beat and you can leave pairs all over the place, rolling around in your glove compartment and tackle box without worry. But when it comes to glasses, what you can’t see can hurt you. Dime store glasses may be cheap and convenient but they come with unseen drawbacks that can hurt both your vision and the overall health of your eye. 

UV Protection

UV Protection

Wearing convenience store sunglasses can actually be worse than wearing nothing at all, accelerating the damage the sun can do to your eyes. Cheaper pairs will cause the pupils to dilate, as if you were in a dark room. However, without UV blocking technology, your pupils are now allowing harmful UV rays to reach the inside of the eye. 
And while some cheap sunglasses claim to offer UV protection, it’s likely in the form of a thin, easily scratched off coating. The UV protection in Revant lenses are a part of the polycarbonate material itself, lasting the life of the product.

Revant’s lenses feature integrated UV protection that keeps your eyes safe from 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays. Every pair of Revant lenses are made of optical grade polycarbonate, provide 100% UV protection, impact resistance, and our 365-day warranty against manufacturing defects.
Impact Resistance

Impact resistance

Gas station sunglasses are no match for fish hooks and all manner of flying debris. Poorly made lenses are far more likely to shatter or become dislodged in the event of an impact, leaving your eyes vulnerable to both the debris and the thin lens shatter. 

All Revant lenses are impact resistant, designed to meet the impact resistance standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z80.3 and EN 1836:2005 as well as the FDA regulation 21 CFR 801.410 for impact-resistant lenses for general use. Our lenses are designed for high mass and high velocity impact protection.


Conventional Lenses

Optical Precision

Cheap sunglasses come with that appealing price tag because they are made with low quality components. This is most apparent when it comes to the clarity of the lenses. Thin plastics frequently bend and warp, leading to distortion and poor visual clarity. Subpar lenses, are quite literally a headache.

 That won’t happen with Revant lenses. We test for crisp lines of resolution using a camera that won’t autocorrect. No more kicking your eyes into overdrive. See faster, fresher, longer. When it comes to producing a crisp, clear view, our lenses are equal to Oakley and better than the rest.

 High quality eyewear is more reasonably priced than you think. If you don’t already have the initial investment of a name brand pair of frames, cheap Oakley sunglasses (or your preferred brand) can be found at eBay, OfferUp, Facebook Marketplace and other online platforms. Breathe new life into old frames for half the price with Revant replacement lenses and get a custom tailored experience with our extensive selection of protective treatments and tints to suit your lifestyle and adventures.
