Revision Military introduces the Sawfly Photochromic Eyewear System. Featuring Revision's rapid light-changing technology, first introduced in its Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses, the ballistic photochromic Sawfly lens automatically darkens to a sunglass tint when exposed to sunlight and returns to its clear state in the absence of UV rays, providing a tactical edge in rapidly changing environments.

"Revision's photochromic lens technology not only eliminates the need to switch lenses when transitioning between the indoors and outside, but also automatically adjusts to compensate for varying outdoor light levels allowing the end user to focus on his mission, not his eyepro," commented Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. Revision's Photochromic Sawfly lens takes only 60 seconds to change from its darkest state to almost clear, while most competitors' lenses take more than twice as long to do the same. From the clear state to a light-grey lens tint capable of blocking sun glare, it takes only 20 seconds. "For military and tactical operators, faster photochromic lens change means enhanced visual performance when it's most needed - in dynamic environments."

True to the entire Sawfly line, the new Sawfly Photochromic Eyewear System exceeds ANSI Z87.1-2010 and U.S. military ballistic impact requirements for spectacles (MIL-PRF-31013 clause 3.5.1.1) while providing flawless optics and 100 percent UV protection. The Revision Sawfly Photochromic Basic Kit retails for $149.99 and the lens is interchangeable across the entire Sawfly line. The Photochromic system is prescription ready with Revision's optional Rx Carrier; it's also available in three sizes to ensure fit, comfort and optical performance. The system will be available for purchase in March 2012.
