Eagle Eyes


The origin of Eagle Eyes began at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory where scientists developed ground-breaking technology that would protect human eyesight from the harmful effects of solar radiation light.

NASA researchers first looked to nature for a solution - in particular, by studying how eagles and hawks can distinguish their prey from their surroundings with utmost precision.

Their findings revealed that eagles have unique oil droplets in their eyes that selectively filter out harmful radiation and permit only specific wavelengths of light to enter their eyes giving them extremely powerful visual clarity, even at great distances. NASA then replicated this discovery into a lens technology that, in turn, resulted in Eagle Eyes - a leader in high performance eyewear.
