From Low light to Full Sunlight
How Smart Fishing Sunglasses Work
Sanofan fishing sunglasses with smart FluidTint polarized lenses combine the advantages of the two best lens colors for fishing, amber and copper.
This is how it works:
Each FluidTint lens contains millions of specialized particles that absorb energy from the sun to smoothly change color from amber to copper, keeping your eyes well-shaded in all weather conditions.
This is called a photochromic reaction, and as a result…
FluidTint lenses adapt automatically—on autopilot—No need to carry multiple pairs of sunglasses.
Enjoy perfect vision over the FULL range of sunlight. (Please wait a few seconds for the video to load.)

Look Who Else Is Wearing Sanofans
Bendable Nose Rests - The first (very pleasant) surprise was the bendable nose rests that can spread out just wide enough for the perfect fit on my slightly wider than average nose bridge. This is a huge plus to me because most glasses are rigid at this critical fitting-point and end up resting farther away from my face than desired.
The "feel" of wear is very comfortable. Nine holes went by before I remembered they were on my face. This was never the case with prior brands.
Personally, I prefer the subtle lens color (amber-ish) over other glasses on the market that are too day-glow pink or green, or pastel in general, for my taste.
The visual experience on the golf course is superb, not that I'm an expert, just far better than my old pair.
Sorry I can't comment on the auto-color-change based on natural light conditions. I wore them only once so far - put them on when the sun came out, and the sun stayed out for the rest of the round. But I'm confident the visual experience will hold true with typical range of natural light on golf courses.
On the car ride home I reached for my usual driving sunglasses, then thought, what the heck am I wearing these for, they're almost always too dark for most driving conditions. So I retrieved the Sanofan's from the golf bag and now they're positioned to be my driving glasses too.
The next generation model(s) would be even better if:
* Nose-bridge-rests provided a tad more width spread.
* Lens color options included brown-ish color similar to traditional casual wear glasses.
* Offer a casual style model for the second pair I'd buy for the car, and every other situation that calls for sunglasses.
* Consider branding under a different name bc for some reason I can never recall the name "sanofan" when speaking about golf glasses with friends. (well, at least two conversations thus far)
olofan's took the put the new ride When started driI got to the car I too
for the s around the golf course is excellent in my mind.etceven realized that ing glasses was undetectable.
They fit was so comfortable I was amazed
Haven’t tried these out yet as the weather hasn’t been right?
So far the sunglasses are great. Love how they get darker in direct sun. Much easier following the ball down the fairway.
Also very comfortable, I forget I have them on.
Having recently developed an eye condition where glare is a problem, these glasses are incredible. Glare is no longer an issue and tracking the golf ball is so much easier. Have recommended Sanofan to a number of friends already.
Really enjoy wearing these sunglasses. They filter out the blue light well and are cool on the eyes. As the lenses darken in the sun, the clarity improves even more. You can wear these glasses for hours without Causing eye strain.
Great quality. Polarized & auto tint is very cool!
I have had many over the years, with my new Sanofan glasses I can clearly see my car dash while driving and don't have to keep removing them when it clouds over. I went whale watching last week of Noosa Heads and they were fantanic on the water.
Bonus: True Supercharged Polarization
Polarization makes fish visible, but only high-contrast lenses allow them to stand out against the bottom.
We call this "Supercharging Polarization".
Amber and copper are the ONLY sunglass lens colors to sharpen contrast, increase resolution, and boost polarization.
They do this by blocking blue light from entering your eyes.
This is a big deal because…
Our eyes cannot focus on blue light, causing eye strain and blurred vision.
Other colors like gray are unable to compete, as they let blue light hit your eyes completely unfiltered.
The good folks at Orvis agree:
Light brown, copper, and amber all sharpen contrast by reducing blue light
Amber and copper lenses are my choice for sight fishing.
— The Ultimate Book of Fly Fishing, page 135
Now, here comes the good part:
Sanofan fishing sunglasses supercharge polarization by combining the power of BOTH, amber and copper, in a single lens!

I like how they sit away from your face just a bit, so they breathe and don't fog up like most sunglasses I wear do.

Removing blue light is essential in enhancing contrast. This is because blue light tends to scatter in the eye, making it difficult to focus.
Only yellow, amber, and copper lenses can block blue light. In fact, this is what makes them special.
All other lens colors, including gray, let blue light rays hit your eyes completely unfiltered.
As your pupils widen behind dark gray lenses, even more blue light than usual enters your eyes' retina.
In other words:
When wearing gray lenses, the problems blue light causes, like blurred vision and mild headaches, are likely to get worse.
So, why not yellow lenses?
Yellow lenses are good at increasing contrast, but terrible at removing glare from the water surface.
And here is why:
A good polarization filter makes a lens darker by default by removing all visible light rays of a specific angle.
Unfortunately, yellow lenses can't be made darker, or else they wouldn't appear yellow anymore.
So, in order to market them as "polarized", yellow lenses tend to come with a weaker form of polarization that is less dark but leaks reflective light.r text here...
First, in order to avoid confusion:
Mirror coatings in silver, blue, or green are not lens colors, but just a thin layer on top of the actual lens.
Their main purpose is to cut out even more sunlight, which makes them uncomfortable to wear in low-light situations like dawn, dusk, and on overcast days.
This is why we don't use them.
Also, if applied directly to the lens surface, those shiny metal coatings are naturally prone to scratches.
Sanofans are the perfect choice for all fishing activities like fly-fishing, carp fishing, and bass fishing.
But being able to maintain perfect vision in all weather conditions is crucial for many applications, such as boating, hunting, and golfing... and even clay pidgin shooting:
I have used them driving and hunting, and they have performed great.
-- James Dooley, USA
Really helps seeing wild life. Great for hunting and fishing
-- Zane Young, USA
I would highly recommend these glasses to any avid fisherman or golfer.
-- Neal Gilliam, USA
I'm not a fisherman, but the sun glasses are great for playing golf and driving.
-- Faye Bartley, USA
They do the job exceptionally well, [...] especially when i’m clay pigeon shooting
-- Is Dupoy, United Kingdom
Sanofans with FluidTint lenses work great for driving in daylight, where they sharpen contrast and remove reflections from the windshield.
Just note that inside a car, the color change won't be as apparent as outside.
This is because the windshield filters out part of the UV rays that are responsible for the darkening effect of the lens.
A word of warning:
Sanofans are not suitable for driving at night. For night driving, only glasses with yellow lenses should be used.
If you are ok with this limitation, you'll enjoy wearing your Sanofans in the car:
They are great fitting sunglasses, not just good for fishing but excellent for driving
-- Dwight McLeod, Canada
I ordered 2, so I could use a pair while driving and one for fishing
-- Eric S., USA
Loved them so much I bought a second pair for driving
-- Rodney Bond, USA
My guess: It's because it would hurt their bottom line.
Instead of selling you just one pair that works all the time, it's much more lucrative to make you buy separate sunglasses for overcast and sunny days, lake fishing and stream fishing.
Now, you might ask:
"Why do you only sell color-changing fishing sunglasses?"
The better our sunglasses, the more we sell through word of mouth marketing. So by making the only fishing sunglasses you'll ever need, everybody wins.
Sanofans with FluidTint lenses shield you from all UVA and UVB rays and pass US standard ANSI Z80.3:2018.
Here's the test result:
As you can see, Tmax UVB and Tmax UVA are both at 0.00%, which means FluidTint lenses blocks all rays of that light range.
Now, this is important:
Not all sunglasses that pass this standard fully protect your eyes.
Standard ANSI Z80.3:2018 allows up to 3.76% UVB and a whooping 30.10% UVA radiation to reach your eyes, while still being considered "UV protective".
So make sure to always ask for the actual test report before making a decision.
