Understanding the Technology Behind Nike Prescription Sunglasses

Nike Prescription Sunglasses Technology

There’s a lot more to prescription sunglasses than meets the eye (pun intended), yet, thankfully Nike has been developing the innovative technology wearers need to reach their peak performance outdoors. Nike’s prescription sunglasses selection includes options for both athletes and casual wearers; either way, consumers will enjoy the benefits of the technology behind Nike prescription sunglasses.

Lens Technology

Nike Max Optics is the lens technology found in all of Nike Vision’s prescription eyewear line, including the semi-rimless sunglasses model, designed, specifically, for athletic use. The technology in Nike Max Optics comes from the lens materials, the way they are cut and shaped, and the coatings.

The lenses are made from polycarbonate and nylon materials and are made to be impact and shatter resistant, as well as lightweight. They provide 100% UVA/B protection, and consumers can choose between specific tints depending on the use, such as polarized, golf, speed, or outdoor. The main benefit of this technology is to shield wearers’ eyes from different shades of sun glare and provide consistent vision when in the shade away from sun glare.

Nike teamed up with Transitions Optical to develop the different lens options for wearers to choose from. The main idea is for the lenses to be adaptive to different environments and light conditions, to dim the sun and brighten the shadows by manipulating the spectrum of colors coming through. Each type of lens is made for specific uses, for instance: the Speed Tint is engineered specifically for runners on road surfaces, Outdoor Tint for natural environments, Golf Tint enhances the green’s contours and the white ball, etc.

Another aspect of the technology behind the development of Nike Max Optics is the way the lenses are cut. Instead of cutting from the center of the blank (like inferior lenses), Nike Max lenses are cut from the position in the blank that aligns best with the eyes – this method optimizes the lenses around the typical line of sight of wearers.

Another important aspect of Nike Max Optics technology is the hydrophobic coating on the lenses. This coating is very useful in practical applications, as it repels: dust, perspiration, dirt, sand, fingerprints, liquids, etc.scratch resistant; also, this coating is what scratch-resistant and easy to clean. For athletic, work, casual, or general active users, this innovative coating technology makes the difference in being able to see clearly or not.

Frame Technology

The Nike Vision Prescription eyewear line includes many different types of frames, such as high-quality metal, full nylon wrap around, metal rims with nylon arms, and semi-rimless. These all have their benefits and qualities, including breathable nose bridges, thickness levels, rubber arm ends, lightweight, and differing styles, yet, the semi-rimless interchange frames are the most innovative when it comes to technology.

The Nike Interchange frames allow for wearers to use different lenses in them, simply, by switching them out when desired. Every part of these frames are adjustable and interchangeable from the other parts, such as the: Cam-action hinges, temple, silicon rubber arm ends, main nylon frame, ventilated nose bridge, and the Nike Max Optics lenses of choice.

With Nike Interchange frames, wearers have the ability to match the appropriate lenses with the environment they’ll be in for each day; this type of innovative technology, uniquely, belongs to Nike sunglasses, giving wearers more options and flexibility when choosing their sunglasses.

When consumers choose Nike prescription sunglasses, they’ll benefit from the innovative lens and frame technology behind their development. The science of the light spectrum, precision in design, innovative partnerships, and quality materials, all work together in creating the best lenses and frames for athletic use on the market today.

Tennis Rules for the Beginners to Know as a Tennis Player

rules of tennis game

Tennis is a famous game that is played in all over the world, and people have an opportunity to build his or her career in this game. This sport has been originated in England around the 19th century. At present times there are four major tournaments that are held every year; the names are Wimbledon, US Open, French Open and Australian Tournament. If you haven’t played this game before and want to start playing, then there are many things that you have to keep in mind. Like many other games, this game also has some set rules for playing and counting scores. In this article, we’ll try to give you the basic idea of this game so that you know the game when you start playing.


Tennis can be played by two persons, which is called ‘Singles,’ or by four persons, ‘which is called doubles.’ If there are four players, then there are two players on each side. The tennis ground is rectangle shapes which expand and squeezes depending on the number of the players. In doubles, the ground gets wider. The ground is divided into two halves by a net in between. You need tennis bats and balls to play this game. While playing this game, you have play within the given boundary; if the ball goes outside, it is called out. This game is similar to the game badminton with few differences.

The Servings

Before the game begins there will be a toss to decide who is going to serve first. The server will continue to serve until the set ends. When the set ends the receiver will become the server and continue to serve until the set ends. In this way turn by turn, the players will serve throughout the match. The server will serve from one corner of his side to the other corner of the opposite side. There are boxes on both sides, and the ball needs to drop in the box of opposite side while serving. After serving the players can play the way they like.

Counting the Points

Scoring in the tennis game is a little confusing as it doesn’t count the scores same all the time. When a side has 0 points, it is called ‘Love.’ For first two points, you get 15 score each which equals to 30. Next point is scored 10 point which totals 40 and at the final is the set point. If the score of the two teams become the same, it is called ‘deuce.’ When the score becomes deuce, the player needs to score two consecutive points. The first one is called ‘advantage,  ’ and the other is the set point. If only one point is taken and the other is loss, then the advantage point gets eliminated. The other player gets the chance to take two consecutive points. That is why the difference between the winning team and losing the team is two, not one.

Fault and Double Fault

If the serve doesn’t fall into the diagonal space of the receiver then it is called a ‘fault.’ If two faults are committed, then the receiver gets the point which increases his score. If the ball hits the net, then it is called a ‘net serve, ’ and the server gets the chance to re-serve. There is no limit for re-serving if the ball hits the net continuously. While playing the ball must hit the outside line or any space inside the boundary. If it doesn’t remain within then, the opponent gets the point.

Tennis is a game where you need a lot of energy as you need to run on your side continuously. For this reason, it is good to keep a water bottle beside you when you are playing. This is a game which is enjoyed by all the people. Boys and girls play this game equally; I will say that the girls do better than the boys. You can play this game to enjoy, or you can take it as your career if you are passionate about it.
