Polyamide vs. Polycarbonate

Polyamide Lens Material from Carl Zeiss Vision

When choosing sunglasses, most people do not think about the material the lenses are made of. However, the lens material is important because it affects the clarity of your vision and how you perceive the world.

Over 90% of sunglasses are made from polycarbonate because it is inexpensive to manufacture. However, polycarbonate lenses do not have good clarity, which can reduce your ability to see details when you are outdoors.

The best lens material for your eyes is polyamide.

Polyamide lenses have excellent clarity, like glass, and can provide perfect vision outdoors. This is important for activities such as biking, hiking, driving, and playing sports.

At Compass®, we only use the highest quality lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision, which are made from polyamide. We believe that you deserve to see the world in perfect clarity, and that is why we only use the best materials.

Here are some of the benefits of polyamide lenses:

  • Performance: Amazing visibility and clarity, making them ideal for cycling and other activities.
