From the outset, our mission has been to create a range of sunglasses that not only provides
protection from extended exposure to UV (ultraviolet) rays, but which also improves
sports performance.

For an athlete performing in South Africa’s harsh conditions, sunglasses are a necessity, not
a luxury. Eye experts agree that prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays is harmful, and is
a major cause of problems such as cataracts and deterioration of the retina. Conditions are
being further aggravated by continuous reduction of the ozone layer, resulting in increased
UV levels.

We build Dynamic Visual AcuityR (DVAR) into all our lenses. This system is unique to Hawk
and gives high definition vision in close range and over distance.

Hawk Performance Eyewear blocks 100% of UVA and UVB light and screens out 75% to 90%
of all visible light to protect one’s most precious receptors, the eyes. All of our sunglasses
meet the international standard of UV 400 eye protection, delivering comfort, maximum
grip and absolute UV absorption.
