Revision Military is accelerating the production of ballistic laser protective eyewear lenses for law enforcement officers around the US, the company announced on 13 November.
Following an initial delivery of lenses to the US Department of Homeland Security, Revision experienced a dramatic increase in inquiries from federal, state and local departments and from individual officers. Since July, reported incidents involving laser attacks have skyrocketed, resulting in various eye effects, injuries and partial blindness.
Revision has been at the forefront of laser and ballistic protective eyewear solutions for the past decade. Standard laser protective lenses are widely available, but much rarer are lenses that combine tailored laser protection with military-standard ballistic protection, coupled with world-class anti-fog performance, integrated prescription correction and multiple sizes for optimal fit and comfort. Revision’s LazrBloc eyewear provides this comprehensive solution – battle-proven by military forces around the globe and now widely being delivered to US law enforcement.
“After several fellow federal LE agents were blinded a few weeks ago at a demonstration, we knew we needed something to protect us. We looked at Revision and trusted the information received. Upon receipt, we were sent to a massive demonstration and had our new Revision laser eyewear. I had lasers panning in my face for hours, and no one on the front lines with me were injured. I’ll never go without them,” stated one federal agent.
Amy Coyne, Revision’s CEO, added “It’s been incredible to watch our team rise to the occasion to respond to the urgent demand from the law enforcement community […] there was no hesitation throughout the organisation to dig deep and deliver eyewear to help prevent injury and blindness to our men and women in uniform. It’s [at] times like these that we benefit from a vertically integrated operation, were we design, develop, test and manufacture protective eyewear at scale in our own facility.”
Now 100% owned and operated in the US, Revision has successfully completed a reorganisation under Coyne since the change of ownership a year ago, remaining open and operational throughout the pandemic. It is already generating interest leading to growth in new markets, coupled with the development of new products and technology.
