Ellume Polarized

Ellume-inate Your Life

Ellume Polarized Color Filtration revolutionizes the way you see color. This high-purity lens filters specific wavelengths of colors so reds, greens and blues vibrantly pop, enhancing every view. This process eliminates color confusion, allowing you to see the world’s natural colors with greater clarity and contrast with Ellume Polarized.

See the world more clearly with Ellume Polarized. While other lenses are made from petroleum-based materials, Ellume Polarized uses a unique plant-based polymer(Z-Lite/Z-Resin frames contain a minimum of 45% bio-resin) as the bonding agent to deliver a high-purity lens for cleaner, crisper vision.

100% Polarized

Premium Polarization

Ellume Polarized blocks glare that dulls color and causes eye fatigue and sensitivity, which disrupts your experience outdoors. Ellume Polarized comprehensively filters HEV light and blocks 100% of harmful UVA/B, which are linked to Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and the formation of cataracts.

Ellume Color Filtration


Ellume Polarized is built to enhance specific wavelengths of visible light while reducing harmful high-energy blue light (HEV). This process eliminates color confusion so you see the colors of the spectrum more vividly.
