The AV-SUN'S were designed for Pilots who have good distance vision but need reading glasses. They are also available without bifocals or with a full prescription.
The AV-SUN'S truly do make flying easier, safer and more enjoyable by taking away the hassle of changing glasses. The AV-SUN's have a gray gradient tint with 100% UV protection. When looking outside the plane the AV-SUN's give you the benefit of sunglasses, plus the benefit of clear reading glasses for reading in low light conditions inside the plane.
The AV-SUN'S are non-polarized. Polarized glasses should not be worn by Pilots because they block out glare and glare from an approaching plane is the first thing you will see to avoid a mid-air. Also GPS'S and flat panel screens cannot be viewed through polarized glasses.
The AV-SUN's lenses are made from CR-39 ophthalmic resin which is prescription lens material that is clear as glass without the weight. Other sunglasses are made from less expensive material that are not as clear, making it difficult or impossible to see other aircraft. Other sunglasses are fine for driving a car but not for flying a plane.
Most of our frames have titanium ear pieces so they will flex to your temples for a comfortable fit whenwearing a headset. A case is included.
The AV-SUN'S follow all FAA recommendations.
