Polaré® Polarized Lenses:
Cocoons sunglasses are available in gray, amber, copper or yellow polarized lenses. Polarization is similar to a chemical venetian blind, rearranging light and allowing you to see "through" harsh glare and reflection. 100% polarized lenses are the only truly effective way of eliminating glare.
All Live Eyewear sunglasses feature Polaré polarized lenses. When wearing polarized lenses, eyestrain is reduced, allowing your eyes to remain relaxed and focused on the task at hand. The elimination of glare provides a tranquil "cocoon" for your eyes, improving visual acuity and enhancing depth perception. Polaré lenses are optically correct, meaning that there is no visible distortion. It is extremely important when wearing sunglass lenses over prescription eyewear that the lenses are distortion free.
Cocoons sunwear features the proprietary Polaré lens system to deliver optical grade visual acuity and durability, unmatched by any other OveRx sunwear. Polaré lenses are scratch resistant and deliver 100% UV A and B protection.

The Polarized Advantage:
Light reflected from horizontal surfaces produces harsh glare that can greatly distort and hinder visual acuity. Polarized lenses act as a chemical "venetian blind" that eliminates blinding glare by rearranging the reflected light before it reaches the eyes. The Polaré lens system delivers maximum polarization efficiency to enhance visual performance while allowing the eyes to remain relaxed and focused.
This is a neutral tint that delivers natural color definition and contrast. Ideal for every day use in bright light conditions where enhanced contrast is not required. (15% LT)
A general purpose tint that heightens depth perception and object definition by effectively filtering scattered blue light to improve contrast. Ideal for skiing, fishing and all flat light conditions. (16% LT)
Amber is effective at absorbing most blue light waves which sharpens visual acuity, improving depth perception and contrast in variable light conditions. Amber is popular for fishing, driving, and general use. (14% LT)
A long time standard in ski and shooting sports, yellow provides excellent depth perception and dramatic contrast in low light. Improves contrast and gives a sensation of heightened visual acuity in low light conditions. (27% LT)
Cocoons are available in six different sizes, from small to extra large, with a choice of black, tortoiseshell, sand, slate and burgundy frame color. All styles are constructed from ballistic nylon and feature a supple soft touch finish for the ultimate combination of durability and comfort.
Cocoons adjustable Flex2Fit temples are designed for quick and easy manual adjustment of the shape and curvature of the ear pieces. This unique feature allows each wearer to achieve an exact fit that is secure and comfortable during extended wear.
Cocoons fit over sunglasses feature Flex2Fit® adjustable temples. The flexible ear pieces contain a wire core that enables you to precisely shape them for an exact fit. When purchasing your Cocoons sunglasses, the temples will come pre-shaped, but it is very easy to contour the temples to create your own custom fit. There is no heat or special tools required to achieve a custom fit that is both secure and comfortable.
By manually applying inward pressure, the ear pieces can be contoured to more closely follow the curvature of your head. By bending the ear pieces downwards, the temples can be adjusted to achieve a more snug fit if you are experiencing a problem with the sunglasses "slipping forward". If you are experiencing added pressure from the temples, simply reverse this process to widen or straighten the shape of the ear pieces.
360° of Protection:
It is important that a sunglass provides protection from all angles, not just the front. Standard sunglasses can allow up to 40% more unfiltered light to reach the eyes because they do not provide protection from the top, bottom and sides. Cocoons patented frame designs block damaging UV light and glare from all angles (top, bottom and sides), completely isolating the eyes in a cocoon of filtered light.
This simple to use sizing guide will help you select the Cocoons OveRx sunglass that most accurately fits over your prescription eyewear. Place your eyewear face down on the image of the Cocoons Slim Line Medium. If your eyewear fits within the red box, this size can be worn over your glasses. If your eyewear exceeds the red box, then you must try the next size up. There are 6 sizes of Cocoons to choose from. The ideal fit will come from the size that is just slightly larger than your prescription eyewear.
