What is Trivex® Lens Material?

Enchroma lenses are made with Trivex® material, a best-in-class optical lens material known for delivering exceptional clarity, lightness and strength.

The Benefits of Trivex Material for EnChroma

Our proprietary spectral filtering technology requires a superior lens material to ensure that you receive the optimal visual experience in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Trivex material, introduced in 2001, offers significant benefits as compared to lenses made using older lens technologies. Originally developed for high strength military aircraft windows, Trivex material was adapted for the optical industry and is now known around the world as as the premium lens material of choice for high performance eyewear.

Crisp, Visual Clarity

Optical clarity can be measured by the Abbe number and the higher the value, the better. Trivex material has an Abbe number of 45, and delivers exceptional clarity and edge-to-edge visual sharpness, including for complex lens prescriptions.

Lightweight Comfort

Lightness: Trivex material is one of the lightest prescription lens materials on the market. As result, EnChroma lenses made with Trivex material offer ultra-light comfort that you can wear all day.

Strength & Protection

High impact resistance: Trivex lenses are ideal for sports, work and children’s eyewear, where strength and protection are critically important. Lenses made with Trivex® material can pass the American National Standards Institute ANSI Z87.1.2015 high impact test.*

UV Protection: Trivex material blocks 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays, important for long-term eye health for all ages.

*ANSI Z87.1 High-Velocity Impact Test: The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has established one of the most stringent impact and projectile penetration standards for optical lenses. The standard specifies that high-impact lenses must pass high-velocity testing where 1/4-inch steel pellets are shot at the lens at a velocity of 150 feet-per-second. Eyewear featuring lenses made with Trivex material are able to pass the ANSI Z87.1 High-Velocity Impact Test and the FDA Drop Ball Test. NOTICE: Ordinary dress eyewear and sunglasses are not suitable for industrial eye safety protection. Safety glasses can be identified by checking for a "Z87+" makr on the frame and lens.
