Guide to Smith Lens Tints
Visible Light Transmission (VLT) is the percentage of available light allowed to reach the eye. Different lens tints offer specific VLT to enhance vision in various light and weather conditions. Lighten up those cloudy days with a higher VLT (allowing more light to come through). Or catch some shade on those bright and sunny days with a lower VLT. Either way you can balance out the light for a more comfortable view.
All Smith lenses provide 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
