Designed with athletes in mind, Altius Performance contact lenses are engineered using 360 Degree Total Immersion Technology© to mitigate visual noise, improve visual clarity, and help athletes see and perform better.

However, while Altius Performance contact lenses are engineered for athletes, they are perfect for non-athletes as well. They make a great alternative to sunglasses and can even also provide significant relief to those suffering light sensitivity due to concussions or migraines.

Choose The Right Altius Performance Contact Lenses For Your Lifestyle

There are two varieties of Altius Performance contact lenses currently available:

  • Altius Amber Performance Contact Lens: Designed to increase visual clarity and make it easier to see objects in dynamic environments, making them perfect for fast-moving and reactive sports
  • Altius Grey-Green Performance Contact Lens: Designed for more stable environments, open-air sports, and nature-based activities

Both the Altius Amber and Grey-Green Performance Contact Lens improve visual clarity, reduce visual noise, and help athletes see and perform better.

This makes the Altius Amber Performance contact lens perfect for sports like

  • Baseball
  • Soccer
  • Football
  • Volleyball

  • Tennis
  • Archery
  • Shooting
  • Softball
  • Rugby
  • Snow Sports

Below is an image from the perspective of a catcher during a baseball game without Altius Performance Contact Lens. The bright light from the sun reflects off the sandy surface, creating blurriness and causing other visual distortions. However, once the Altius Amber Performance contact lenses are used, the catcher’s vision immediately improves.

Details like the red stitching of the baseball are more easily distinguishable while general blurriness is reduced across the foreground and background, making it much easier for the catcher to see the ball, other players, and the field.

Below is an image taken from the perspective of a hiker in a natural environment without a pair of Altius Performance contact lens.

While the view is scenic, the bright open space causes dullness throughout the image and many of the most prominent features like the mountain, river, and trees.

These visual distortions may not be immediately apparent, however, until you see the image again through a pair of Altius Grey-Green Performance Contact Lens.

With these contact lenses, there is greater contrast between the blues, greens, whites, and browns.

The mountain, sky, and river suddenly appear more lively as the blues pop against the white snow and mountains. Similarly, the brown trees and green leaves are no longer dull and blurry but striking and vibrant.
