POC has a lens for every type of condition you may encounter on the mountain for a clear and safe view. POC lenses provide uncompromising protection and optical performance. Here we break down each lens and its purpose, but first it's important we cover some key lens vocabulary.

VLT - Visible Light Transmission - this is indicated as a percentage. It is the percentage of light the lens allows through. The lower the number, the less light can pass through the lens, making the lens darker.

Conditions - This describes the ideal conditions for using the lens. However, most lenses can be used in all conditions, especially in the 15-55% V.L.T. range.
