These are no ordinary shades. Outdoors, the sun is the largest producer of blue light which causes haze, interfere with visual clarity and can have negative health impacts . Using proprietary LAPIS™ technology Bajío prescription sunglasses block 95% of harmful blue light up to 445 NM to eliminate haze for exceptional clarity. In addition, our sunglasses block over 90% of harsh yellow light at 580 NM for enhanced color and 100% of damaging UV light. The result: Anglers can see more clearly and spot fish and submerged shapes better making for more productive fishing and less visual fatigue after long days on the water. But there’s more to our Rx sunglasses.
Where typical prescription glasses are made for sitting down to read the Sunday paper, Bajío’s proprietary Rx lenses are customized for movement and all day fishing action as well as quiet moments when attention to detail truly counts. Here’s how:
Single Vision (SV) Lenses
Made for distance vision only correction, Bajío’s SV lenses utilize cutting edge digital processing technology specifically designed to provide edge to edge visual clarity, comfort and performance. In other words, anglers use the entire lens to see better.
Progressive Additional Lenses (PAL)
Made for distance vision with a small reading area in the bottom of the lens, our PAL (or no line bifocals) allow anglers to use part of the lens for distance and part of the lens for close up detail. Instead of off-the-shelf general purpose or typical sport lens design, we use cutting edge digital processing technology. Our proprietary progressive lens was custom designed and tested with world class anglers to ensure maximum field of vision while fishing streams, lakes, rivers and open ocean, with just the right amount of reading area to tie flies, check out your GPS, or dig into your tackle box.
Bajío’s SV and PAL lenses are both available in our shatterproof polycarbonate and include scratch resistance coatings. Polycarbonate lenses are up to 50% lighter and 30% thinner than standard plastic lenses, which feels like a weight has been lifted after long days on the water.
“My new Bajío prescription sunglasses are the best pair I’ve ever owned. Spending 300+ days on the water having a comfortable frame and a superior lens for an old salt makes all the difference—from spotting fish from a distance and tying knots up close in the sun. I won’t leave the dock without them!”
