Melanin is a natural substance and skin pigment produced by the body as a defense to the negative and harmful effect and damage of sunlight primarily to the skin and the eyes. The melanin treated lens of the Sundog Sunglasses reduces the risk of macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is an eye condition prevalent on older people and the major cause of visual impairment and blindness for the older adults. It is the result in loss of vision in the center eye area of the eye’s visual field. An area called the macula, the yellow spot near the center of the human eye retina. The photoprotective technology and the melanin-based lens technology has been integrated by the world’s best optical sundog sunglasses and eyewear lens manufacturer. An original technology initiated by Sundog Eyewear.
Sundog Sunglasses was honored to have the exclusive global agreement and collaboration with Photoprotective Technology on all its melanin treated lenses. And although the original technology developed by Sundog of its melanin treated lenses has been imitated by many on the eyewear industry. For over thirty years of intensive testing on the Mela Lens Technology and to further enhance the Sundog sunglasses lenses, the originally created Mela Lens Technology was further innovated to intensify the filtering of the harmful blue light. Blue Light causes the risk of skin aging. The latest technology, blocks 100% UVA and UVB protection. Sundog Sunglasses also prevent the penetration of the high energy visible blue light.
The overall result of all these high performing technologies efficiently deals off the heavy glare and the harmful effects of ultraviolet on the retinal portion and the fast aging on the skin in and around the eye area brought by the intense blue light and ultimately enhance visual clarity, comfort, and health. There really is no lens compared to the original technology developed for Sundog Sunglasses. The technology initiated by Sundog Eyewear was replicated by many yet the original technology remains superior and hardly seconded by any of its competitors.
