Controlling light
through technology

For ColorMatic®, we work tirelessly to push the technological boundaries of photochromic performance - driven by German engineering.
High Performance

Photochromic molecules that react to UV light

ColorMatic® provides innovative photochromic lenses with high-performance technology, offering protection against harmful UV light, artificial blue light, and glare. When UV light hits the surface of the lens, the high-end photochromic molecules on the lens surface react. As the molecules change the structure and adapt to the changing light conditions, the lens modifies from clear to dark. When the wearer returns indoors, the lens automatically turns clear again. This ensures that the optimal amount of light is let through the lens, optimising the wearer’s visual comfort.

ColorMatic® 3

Engineered to suit all situations

Many photochromic lenses are too dark to wear in cloudy environments. With a slightly higher level of clarity outside in cloudy conditions, ColorMatic® lenses are fine-tuned to ensure that they are also usable in cloudy conditions.

ColorMatic® 3

Better contrast in all situations

ColorMatic® photochromic lenses are designed to optimise contrast levels by controlling the amount of blue light transmitted through the lens. This limits the amount of scattered blue light entering the eye and leads to sharper vision.

Our ColorMatic® 3 lenses are available in different colours designed for unique situations, offering varying levels of contrast. Blue and grey are low-contrast colours that provide a very natural feel, while our green mid-contrast colour strikes a balance between a natural feel and increased contrast. Brown, as one of our high-contrast colours, increases both the warmth of colour and the contrast.
