Eye fatigue is an area of sport science that is often overlooked by athletes, coaches, and trainers.
When it comes to shooting sports eye fatigue is the difference between a Gold Medal and no medal.
There are a variety of elements that are direct drains on the eyes ability to perform. Pilla addresses these issues by focusing on eye fitness. How can we create a technology to maintain and enhance eye fitness?
We partnered with ZEISS to create a technology to manage eye fitness and provide athletes with eye energy for extended periods of time. We do this by using an optically correct lens with tuned color filtration while also focusing on delivering optically perfect frame systems. Eye fitness is maintained by using a lens substrate that does not create a distorted visual picture that the eye must continually adjust to. A sub-standard lens substrate makes your eye muscle feel like it's doing arm curls all day long... eventually your arm gets tired, so does your eye. Your eye has the same issues when it continually needs to adjust to find focus.
A substandard lens material like polycarbonate is only one factor in creating the strain on your eye. Managing light is another factor in maintaining eye fitness. Allowing too much or too little light into the eye strains the eye.
Pilla utilizes ZEISS VIVX, ZEISS Colortrast and Ballistix lenses, our proprietary lens systems, to manage light, maximize color filtration, and provide the athlete with a level of clarity found only in Pilla lenses.
