Lumalens is a color optimized lens technology that increases contrast, enhances depth perception and color recognition, and reduces eye fatigue. Dragon offers Lumalens technology in every lens tint.
The next evolution of Lumalens is the Photochromic version (seen here on the Dragon NFX2), which automatically adjusts to changing light conditions. Say it’s a stormy pow day and you want to see you use a yellow lens. When the weather breaks and it’s sunny the Lumalens Photochromic will automatically adjust to a dark lens so you don’t sear your eyeballs.
