The visual demands of sport require precision equipment that can make the difference between winning and losing. Only the patented design of Nike Max Optics has zero distortion straight ahead and minimal distortion across the complete curve of the lens. Other inferior lenses only claim accuracy straight ahead. Nike Max Optics were created to give athletes superior vision in a substantially larger average field of view because sport doesn't happen in a straight line.
Most sunglasses lenses are simply cut from the center of a lens blank.
After identifying the lens shape and destination frame design, we find the best optical zone on the lens blank.
We then position the lens to be cut out where the line of sight aligns with the optical sweet spot on the lens blank.
