Invite Sunglasses (Smoke/Polar Gray Gradient)
The Invite defies standard convention with the combination of bold and eclectic styling. Utilizing an injection molded Grilamid TR90 frame and 8 base Carbonic TLT lenses the Invite is an automatic RSVP. This vintage eclectic retro look is finished with an understated Smith script plaque on the front of the temples and a round see through icon plaque at the temple ends. Quality is at an all time knowing that the Invite is backed by Smith`s lifetime warranty.

Combining just enough head curve and optical centration to protect you from the elements. The 8 base`s mellowed wrap angle keeps you looking chic. Take `em off and you`re on your own.
Resilient, tough and flexible. Grilamid is an exceedingly light and durable plastic that will maintain its shape under all temperature changes.
Placed at the nose and on the temple tips, this material gently grips your skin to help keep your frame in place. The gripping power increases when introduced to moisture.
TLT (Tapered Lens Technology) Optics
Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively-curved lens causing it to bend or distort an objects true size or position. Imagine looking through a fish eye lens. What your eye normally sees, is stretched beyond reality. Get the picture? Tapered Lens Technology corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center towards the out edges. Light waves are thereby delivered straight to your eye resulting in zero distortion and true optical clarity. What you see is what you get.
It`s the most impact resistant lens material. Not in this country, not in this industry but in the whole world. That`s Carbonic, and it`s only the beginning. We injection mold Tapered Lens Technology for perfect optical precision and add our new anti-scratch coating to keep them fresh. Lightweight, ideal for active sports.
Glare off of reflective surfaces decreases depth perception, reduces visual acuity, and causes eye fatigue. Smith Optics Polarized eyewear uses the highest quality polarized film in the world to filter out 99.9% of this visual static for maximum glare-free comfort. Exactingly pre-shaped in the manufacturing process and precisely aligned in the lenses, Smith polarized film is precisely aligned and pre-shaped in the manufacturing process so that it perfectly matches the curvature of our lenses when installed. Each Smith Optics Polarized lens is in fact two thin wafers of either Techlite glass or Carbonic lens material between which this high-grade polarized film is fitted, protecting it from the elements and ensuring distortion free polarization.
Protection from the Sun
- Polarized Gray: Blocks 99.9% of reflected glare while preserving natural colors in order to provide true color definition.
Linked to eye diseases, cataracts, and temporary conditions such as `snowblindness,` Ultraviolet Radiation (UVA/B/C) is magnified by snow-covered surfaces. All Smith lens tints protect your eyes from 100% of these harmful forms of solar radiation.
