To protect your eyes during live fire, you can’t just throw on any pair of eyewear and call it good. Not all eyewear is created equally, and that’s why it’s important to find well-rated eyewear capable of shielding your eyes from flying brass and potential ricochets or splashback. Revision Military’s I-Vis ballistic eyewear does just that, and they do it with style using combat-proven materials.
Revision Military provides details of the eye pro:
I-Vis is an advanced dye formulation process resulting in a new series of lens tints that markedly enhance visual performance while providing state-of-the-art ballistic eye protection.
Traditional, monochromatic lens tints that enhance contrast do so by imparting a color cast that significantly reduces color accuracy and causes eye fatigue. This is why color-critical users resort to basic smoke-tinted lenses that offer no performance benefit, aside from light reduction.
Conversely, tints developed using I-Vis technology are color-neutral and provide enhanced color accuracy, reduced eye fatigue, increased depth perception, and greater visual detail.
The I-Vis line of ballistic eye pro is offered in a variety of different tints and lenses, each with a specific purpose. The manufacturer explained the concepts behind them:
Verso: Our most technically complex lens designed to thrive in the widest range of environments and settings. This lens excels at separating colors, expanding the volume of color visible to the wearer in many environments. If you’re unsure of the mission profile, this is the lens to use. (VLT: 19%*)
Aros: Enhances colors found in typical desert environments. It brings out differences between similar shades of brown, tan, yellow, and orange colors while making man-made structures and objects stand out. (VLT: 12%*)
Cano: Modeled to provide color definition in an environment dominated by greens, browns, and grays. Visual light transmission is maximized for this lens since operations will be conducted in densely forested areas where the canopy heavily shades the terrain. Man-made structures will stand out, as will differences in the foreground landscape. (VLT: 37%*)
Alto: Suited to dry, high-altitude environments dominated by grays, tans, and blues such as those found in northern Afghanistan. This lens brings out differences in prevalent landscape colors to help troops read terrain and notice man-made structures, roads, and people. (VLT: 12%*)
Clara: Brings out color definition and contrast in brightly lit areas of white, gray, and blue found in snowy wooded areas, rocks, and mountains. It is modeled for use in northern Europe, Scandinavia, and the Baltics, and Poland. This lens will help the wearer better see the undulations of snowpack, identify recently covered tracks, estimate distances, and makes man-made structures, vehicles, and people stand out. (VLT: 12%*)
Umbra: Designed to bring out color contrast in overcast, snow-covered scenes that are dominated by whites and grays found in snowy wooded areas, rocks, and mountains. It is modeled for use in northern Europe, Scandinavia, the Baltics, and Poland. This lens will help the wearer better see the undulations of snowpack, identify recently covered tracks, estimate distances, and makes man-made structures, vehicles, and people stand out. (VLT: 48%*)
