Optic Nerve Response Review

For the past couple of months, I’ve had the opportunity to test the Optic Nerve Response. I’ve used it not only for mountain biking but for driving and all outdoor recreation when sun glasses were needed.

The Response’s lenses automatically adjusts to darken or lighten depending on the amount of sun light or UV exposure. That means no extra lenses needed to change out from. At the same token, no extra lenses needed to keep up with. An even added bonus is that it’s impact resistant with 100% UV protection.
