Steven Jacques Provides Insight Regarding
New Olympian Geared Glasses

A new Oakley line of Prizm glasses called Green Fade offer a special filter that alters light transmission to show different perspectives on color. It creates an artificial color spectrum that's supposed to optimize sports performance.

"If sun glasses filter certain colors, then the eye's response curves will be responding to the transmitted colors and not sensitive to the blocked colors. In other words, the wavelengths observed are now 'more defined'. This could be an advantage if there were colors that were distracting."
