We have now released a special Way Cool Protective filter for the Red 0.3 and 0.45 Blue Eye wide angle lenses. The idea is that the filter will protect your investment from the rigours of adventure sport use and your lenses will last you a lifetime. We have designed the filter so that it will fit existing Red/Blue lenses already in service.  Our super small wide angles are the only lenses of this kind to offer the added protection of a Protective Filter, a great reason to choose a Way Cool Wide Angle Lens.
