non polarized aviator sunglasses for pilots

About Us

I am an Optician that has specialized in helping people who are extremely sensitive to the sun and glare for the last 40 years. Sensitive eyes require darker than normal sunglasses to be in the very bright world. When they go to their eye specialist they ask what kind of sunglasses should they wear? Their eye specialist will routinely shrug their shoulders, and suggest that they get the best “Polarized Lenses” they can find. That is their best answer to that question.

Zurich International’s XG extreme glare reduction technology is not polarized, and it does not interfere with avionics, iPads, or other electronic screens that incorporate polarizing filters such as LCDs and LED screens. In addition, our XG technology does not create splotches on the canopies of aircraft which make it difficult to see through the dark, and cloudy areas, to read weather patterns, or see approaching aircraft.

Polarization also eliminates the glint of approaching planes. Our XG technology allows the glint of near, incoming aircraft to be seen so that there is time to maneuver out of their path. Lastly, our XG technology allows better vision to infinity, giving greater depth perception, better color recognition, and reducing eye strain and the resulting tension affecting the neck, shoulders, and upper back of the dedicated pilot. Lastly, XG technology can be added to prescription lenses. We can add our technology even to the most sophisticated types of lenses like progressive. This is a huge benefit for thousands pilots that wear Rx lenses like bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses.
