Automatic Darkening Eyewear

FADES®️ Dynamic Eyewear Adapts to the World Around You.

Outdoor adventurers require dynamic eyewear. The best sunglasses for biking, hiking or rock climbing in bright sunlight, FADES® constantly adapt for optimal vision. Unlike Transitions®️, which take up to 15 seconds, Ashchromics take only one second to reach the perfect setting for your current condition. Our 100% UV-blocking patented technology darkens and lightens almost instantaneously based on the amount of visible light, so you can focus solely on your next adventure.


Our light responsive lenses create intermediate states of darkness including transparent, light gray, blue-gray, and dark blue-black.


FADES® utility transcends eyewear. We’ve adapted our military-grade utility for visor inserts and building windows, while continuing to develop other applications for impactful, multipurpose invention.

Rapid Response

Our light reactive lenses change from light to dark in under three seconds without the need for UV light. Since the glasses do not require UV light, they continue to adapt while inside.

Very High Light/Dark Contrast

Our american made sunglasses are capable of being as light as eyeglasses, as dark as sunglasses, and any shade in between.
