Comment: Von Zipper's new MelOptics polarized lenses are nothing short of amazing. I've been wearing the MelOptics in the Elmore frame for about 6 months and they are by far the best sunglasses I've ever owned.
All VZ MelOptics lenses feature a synthetic melanin coating that blocks 97% of blue light and makes them UV500 rated (most glasses are UV400.) The MelOptics lens also acts like SPF140 for your eyes. Keeps the harmful rays out and wards off crowsfeet and premature aging around your eyes.
Questions From Buyers
What is a 8-Base lens? A lens' Base refers to the amount of arc in the lens and therefore the arc in the frame. A 6-Base is a more flat, square shape creating a more scholarly look. A larger base like a 9-Base is more wrapped and therefore will appear more suited for active endeavors.
