Vuarnet 002 PX Skilynx Cat Eye Sunglasses

Vintage Vuarnet 002 PX Cat Eye sunglasses feature the rare Vuarnet blue frame with gradient mirror Vuarnet Skilynx lenses for a look that looks great and will protect your eyes regardless of light conditions. The Vuarnet Skilynx gradient mirror lenses are one of the best optically, and they're perfectly complemented here in the blue frame. The Skilynx lens, worn in 1960 by world champion and Olympic medal winner Jean Vuarnet, is renowned worldwide for allowing the wearer to look directly at the sun and to improve light levels in misty weather. Vuarnet also recognized that blue light is responsible for the dazzling effects of strong sunlight and can lead to errors in visual perception and jugement. As such, the interior of the lens has an anti-reflective coating which eliminates annoying reflections off the concave side of the lens. Vuarnet cat eye sunglasses and lenses are popular for a variety of outdoor sports and activities including of course skiing, the sport where Vuarnet first made its name and where it still enjoys a stellar reputation. These early Vuarnet PX cat eye sunglasses c 1980s feature a blue frame marked on the exterior of one ear stem PX in the circle (for Vuarnet maker Sporoptic Pouilloux) and the exterior of the other Vuarnet PX. The blue nylon frame is incredibly durable and marked Nylon on the inside of one ear stem, and the frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple with lenses measuring 2.25" x 1.875" at the widest points. In addition to the external marks, the inside of one ear stem is marked France Brevete S.G.D.G.
