While you might think there’s plenty of sand available to make glass, humans use more of it than we do oil. Thankfully, glass is 100% recyclable— it comes from the Earth and goes back to the Earth. Glass has an unlimited life and can be recycled endlessly.
Glass lenses offer the crispest, clearest visual clarity and the highest scratch resistance, naturally. Measured by Abbe value, glass is the most optically pure material which is why it’s used in tools that require precision clarity such as camera lenses, microscopes, binoculars, and of course, Bajío sunglasses. Measured by Bayer Value, glass is also the hardest material available. The harder the material, the more scratch resistant. Because pure glass offers little protection against UV rays, Bajío applies an additional UV filter to protect your eyes. But we don’t stop there. We also apply a proprietary filter for to absorb blue and yellow light for the best protection, most visual clarity and highest performance.
