Alongside base colours is the option of mirror coatings. People often confuse the two, but they are quite different things.

For example, if you have a blue mirror coating, this does not mean that you have a blue tinted lens or blue base colour. It means that there is a blue coloured coating that has been applied on top of the base colour (whatever that base colour may be). There are some benefits of mirror coatings in addition to style and aesthetics. For example our FLO with Pacific Blue lenses has a violet base colour and a blue mirror coating. The violet base lens colour enhances whites and greys, while the blue mirror coating reflects blue light away from the eye. In a bright ocean environment where blue is everywhere, this helps to balance the overall light spectrum and provide greater visual acuity.

There are additional benefits of mirror coatings such as the reduction of glare (in addition to the effects of polarisation), and this further reduces eye strain.

A word of caution on mirror coatings – they are more liable to scratch, so take good care of them!
