Julbo Mineral Lenses
Alti Arc   Category 4 mineral lens with anti-reflective and flash finish 
Julbo’s  glass lens, with their superior optical quality and highly resistance to scratches and bumps, are ideal for the desert and high altitudes. The Altitude Arc lens is the name for glacier goggles. The various lens treatments allow them to eliminate parasite reflections and reinforce filtering. These include:
-       Anti-reflective coating: improves visual comfort by eliminating stray reflections.
-       Mirror finish: improves visible light filtering with mirror effect lenses. It reflects rays of light and increases the filter effect. It eliminates the radiation reflected by the outer mirrored surface of the lens.
 
Julbo Polycarbonate Lenses
Julbo call these lenses their SPECTRON range which is available in 5 sun protection categories. These are highlighted by the icons in the Key Benefits area of the product pages of the eyekit web site. The organic polycarbonate lenses provide high shock resistance are very light and have good optical quality.
One of the SPECTRON lenses incorporates polarizing technology. In 1998, Julbo was the first brand to launch POLARIZED polycarbonate lenses. This technology rapidly became the standard for the watersports environment. Julbo POLARIZED lenses are created by overmoulding two pieces of polycarbonate lens onto a polarising film. The polarising filter molecules are orientated to suppress light reflection. Julbo POLARIZED lenses eliminate dazzle, they significantly increase visual sharpness (better definition of shapes and colours), and eliminate discomfort and tiredness.
