Lens Technology


Lens Technology is crucial in protecting your eyes. Light reflecting off the water causes glare which can be especially harmful to the eye and reduces your visual acuity. Polarized lenses reduce this glare on a horizontal surface. A good pair of Polarized sunglasses will eliminate glare and help keep your eyes safe from environmental hazards, harmful UV and infrared radiation.

Visual Clarity

Prevents visual fatigue thanks to low haze and high material transparency

In daylight, the human eye is exposed to:

  • short wavelength ultraviolet radiation (UV)
  • visible radiation or visible colors
  • long wavelength infrared radiation (IR)

Infrared radiation (IR) lies beyond the red end of the visible spectrum, with wavelengths between 780-10.000nm. Infrared can’t be seen but can be felt as heat. High intensity IR can lead to damages to the ocular tissues, dryness and discomfort of the eyes.

Most infrared radiations are absorbed by the ocular structure, raising the overall temperature of the eye.

Hook Optics Fishing Sunglasses with ThermoForce Lenses by Zeiss are the ultimate pair of sunglasses. They are light weight, made for extreme weather conditions, protect your eyes by blocking out UV and IR rays, prevent fatigue, while providing High Definition Clarity.

When working or playing in extreme heat and environments for a prolonged time like many fishermen do, it is suggested to take all precautions to keep the eye safe and cool. The Lens Technology in Hook Optics ThermoForce lenses by ZEISS can help you do that. They better protect your eyes while preventing visual fatigue, providing a more comfortable day on the water.

This lens allows for a 92% reduction of Infrared radiation compared to a standard polycarbonate sun lens.

  • Thermo Force absorbs up to 90% near (A) and far (B) infrared radiation (from 780-2000 nm), coming from natural sources.
  • This results in a cooling effect for the eyes, the eyelids and the face areas
    shielded by the lens.
  • It also offers full UV protection (400 nm).
  • Extremely clear and much lighter than mineral glass.

Hook Optics Lenses by ZEISS Block Both UV and Infrared Light

The sun’s radiation is a continuous spectrum made up of electromagnetic waves with higher or lower energy. Visible light, also known as visible spectrum, is the portion visible to human eye, allowing it to distinguish shapes and colors. The eyes are also exposed to two other kinds of energy: ultraviolet light (UV) and the infrared (IR) rays. Up to 53% of sunlight is made of infrared radiation which cannot be seen by the human eye but is perceived as heat.

Hook Optics ThermoForce lenses block both UV and IR rays, keeping your eyes cooler providing you more comfort throughout your day.

Advanced Lens Technology for Enhanced Visual Performance

Understanding Polarization in Fishing Sunglasses

Lens technology plays a pivotal role in safeguarding your eyes during outdoor activities, especially when you’re out on the water. Polarization isn’t just an added feature; it’s a necessity for any angler or outdoor enthusiast. Here’s why:

Combatting Glare with Polarized Lenses

When sunlight reflects off horizontal surfaces like water or snow, it creates intense glare that can strain your eyes and diminish visual clarity. This phenomenon, known as horizontal light, is effectively minimized by wearing polarized sunglasses. By filtering out polarized light waves, these specialized lenses significantly reduce glare, providing unparalleled visual comfort and clarity.

Protection Against Harmful UV Rays

Beyond glare reduction, polarized lenses offer essential protection against harmful UV rays. Exposure to UV radiation can lead to various eye problems, including cataracts and macular degeneration. Investing in sunglasses designed with UV-blocking capabilities ensures long-term eye health, especially when spending extended hours playing outdoors.

Enhanced Visual Acuity and Comfort

Polarized lenses work by selectively blocking polarized light waves, allowing only vertically oriented light to pass through. This selective filtration enhances visual acuity by minimizing distractions caused by glare and reflections. As a result, wearers experience improved contrast and depth perception, crucial for activities like fishing where spotting elusive underwater targets is essential.

The Science Behind Polarization

At the core of polarized lens technology lies the principle of selectively filtering light waves. Unlike conventional lenses, polarized sunglasses are designed to absorb horizontal light, effectively eliminating glare and enhancing visual clarity. This innovative approach ensures that wearers can enjoy their outdoor pursuits with reduced eye strain and unparalleled visual comfort.

Beyond the Water’s Edge

While polarization is mandatory on the water, its benefits extend far beyond fishing expeditions. Whether you’re hiking in snowy terrain or enjoying a day at the beach, polarized sunglasses offer versatile protection against glare and UV radiation. Their ability to enhance visual clarity makes them indispensable for any outdoor activity, ensuring a more enjoyable and safer experience under the sun.
