 How good are Bolle prescription lenses?

Bolle's single vision and varifocal progressive prescription design solution for glasses and sunglassesIn our classification of lenses they are equivalent to our Best - High Performance lenses. They use what they call b-thin active design technology. This uses freeform technology in combination with software that precisely calculates your prescription across the lens at every angle using thousands of precision points. Any axial compensation of the prescription takes into account they size of the frame you select. This prescription program ensures optimum precision, comfort and frame balance for sports sunglasses.

Comparison of generic lenses compared to freeform lensesGeneric lenses can have a disruptive blur-around the perimeter of the lens. The amount of blur will be dependent on the size of the lens, its curvature, and power of the prescription. In contrast, freeform technology provides a clear view over the whole area.
