Smith

Known for its revolutionizing invention of the first double-lens ski goggles, Smith Optics has become synonymous with innovative, durable, top-quality products in the eyewear, goggle, and helmet market. The company was founded in 1965 by Robert Smith, a dentist, who also was an avid skier and athlete. To overcome visibility issues on the snow, Dr. Smith worked in his laboratory to come up with the first-ever goggle featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam.

Building on that goggle heritage and extending its expertise, Smith Optics has gone on to set the standard for high performance eyewear, goggles, and helmets. In sunglasses, Smith Optics is well known for its patented Slider and PivLock series sunglasses, the most innovative interchangeable sunglasses  available, and more recently the ChromaPop lens which offers unmatched polarization, clarity and color enhancement. Smith sunglasses and prescription eye glasses are available in a wide range of styles whether you’re looking for a more-sport oriented pair with superior technology or a more fashion-oriented pair inspired by extreme sports. Smith eyewear represent authentic sports gear, researched and tested by a dedicated group of employees and athletes that live and breathe the lifestyle.
