Altius Performance-Tinted Contact Lenses

Amber Performance Soft Contact Lens—Sports Contact Lens

ALTIUS Contact Lenses For Enhanced Sports Performance

ALTIUS is the cutting edge of sports vision technology. These performance-tinted single-use soft contact lenses are specially designed to reduce visual noise in the ever-changing visual and environmental conditions you encounter in sports and recreation. They help you to perform at your best, with maximum visual clarity, comfort and speed.

ALTIUS contacts are also superior to tinted sunglasses because they cover the entire eye. This eliminates many of the common problems athletes may experience with sunglasses, such as lens reflections, peripheral light leakage, lens fog and scratches, dirty lenses, frame discomfort and optical/visual distortions. And unlike sunglasses, there is no fear of breakage.

How Do ALTIUS Contact Lenses Work?

ALTIUS contact lenses use specific tints to selectively filter both the quantity and quality of light that reach your eyes.

These tints allow colors in the green, yellow, orange, and red parts of the visual spectrum to reach your eyes, while blocking much of the visible wavelength in the violet and blue parts of the spectrum.

By causing some violet and blue objects in the visual field to darken or even appear completely black, chromatic aberration is reduced and objects in the green-to-red wavelengths appear much brighter.

In this way, ALTIUS tinted contacts reduce what wearers perceive as “visual noise” in the environment, reducing glare, improving contrast and sharpening vision.

The Science In a Nutshell

Tinted contact lenses for sports filter out certain parts of the visible light spectrum. This enables you to zone in on the most important visual information for in-game success.

When we discuss visible light, think of a rainbow, from violet to blue, green, yellow, orange, and finally red.

Each individual color is visible to us based on its specific wavelength, with shorter wavelengths appearing more violet or blue, and longer wavelengths appearing more orange or red.

Unfiltered, some of the wavelengths that reach our eyes (especially in the violet-to-blue span of the spectrum) can cause what are known as “chromatic aberrations,” which reduce perceived contrast and can make some images look blurry.

Poor contrast vision can make it difficult to spot a baseball against a cloudy sky, while blurry vision can mean missing the game-winning 3-point shot.
