Louisville, Kentucky, May, 2024 — Vision Dynamics Laboratory announces the launch of ultraSUN™ II sunglass photo as the newest addition to our family of 1.67 D-28 semi-finished proprietary photochromic lens products.

Many consumers want a true sunglass dark photochromic that works well in warm temperatures and has noticeable in-vehicle photochromic activation. Color consistency throughout the aging process is also important. With a superior activation color outdoors and a slight tint indoors, sunglass photo lenses offer consumers a wider choice of photochromic options. Available in grey, base curves .50. 2,4,6 and 8.
