    Faive,

    Can you define Thin Tech please? How is it different than hi index? What exactly is it?

    Hey Mark,

    Note that the post you quoted used Faive's profile but was penned by Mike.

    Rather than a long technical description here, visit the Radio-VT / Podcast where there is verbal and visual description of the Thin-Tech material.

    I'm hoping Mike can also produce some PDF spec sheets, I can upload them to this thread as needed.

    My take from Thin Techs web site is that it's all about the peripheral lenses design. Aspheric for a portion of the periphery and then a notched edge that thins at the bevel. Kind of like the old cataract lenses and its carrier design. Can't be about the material since they make it various indices.

    Sun glasses in the news. An assist in marketing as reported in AOA's First Look 5/28/18...

    Sunglasses Can Protect People’s Eyes From UV Exposure.

    In “Health & Science,” the Washington Post [​IMG][​IMG] (5/25, Adams) reported sunglasses can help protect people’s eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. The article also pointed out that “cataracts, other growths and some cancers are directly related to UV exposure.” The article mentioned that 50% “of white Americans have cataracts in their late 70s,” while “Hispanic Americans and African Americans have somewhat lower prevalences: 45 and 40 percent, respectively, according to the National Eye Institute.”
