Transforming Vision

Automatic Darkening Eyewear

Our unique electrochromic design allows FADES® to change as you see your world.

FADES®️ has transformed the transitional lens industry, with the first dual-polymer electrochromic design that switches from extreme light to extreme dark in less than 2 seconds, and vice versa nearly instantaneously. FADES®️ is not a photochromic (like Transitions®️), and works indoors and in cars. This technology is backed by advanced research and development skills honed in the defense and aerospace industries.


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


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