“Lenses scientifically formulated to be forgotten.”

Phoenix is the lightest lens material in the world. It also meets high impact standards for industrial safety eyewear, and features built-in 100% UV protection.

Phoenix lenses are so light they almost float on water. With a specific gravity of 1.1 grams per cubic centimeter, the Phoenix material is 19% lighter than standard plastic and up to 8% lighter than polycarbonate.

The Phoenix material also has superior tensile strength, which is ideal for drill-mount frames, and Phoenix is 6 times stronger than standard plastic.

Phoenix provides superior safety for the wearer, with impact resistance far exceeding FDA standards. It is 60 times more impact resistant than standard plastic lenses, and includes 100% protection against UV-A and UV-B rays.

“A standard lens can still be superior.”


“Even minor corrections need a solid foundation.”


“Lenses best known for their protection.”

Polycarbonate provides maximum impact resistance, making it the material of choice for protective headgear and even windows on jet airlines. With 60 times more impact resistance than standard plastic, polycarbonate lenses are ideal for children, sports enthusiasts and industrial applications.
