Metal Hologram Sunglasses Explained
The best way to explain metal hologram sunglasses, such as the ones pictured to the left, is to first explain what a reflection hologram is.
There are many different types of hologram technologies used in the marketplace, but one of the most common is reflection hologram technology. You have probably seen it used on everything from sunglasses, stickers and books, to compact disks and wholesale caps. Reflection holograms are images that become visible when viewed at a certain angle. When viewed at this particular angle, the image appears to be not only three-dimensional, but also multicoloured.
Uses Of Metal Hologram Sunglasses
The majority of these sunglasses are typically used as novelty glasses, however there is a certain group of individuals that prefer this type of sunglass lens above any other.
With the popularity of televised poker, hologram sunglasses have become the sunglasses of choice for many poker players the world over. Metal hologram sunglasses help to completely disguise the poker players eyes from his opponents, making it that much harder for the other players to figure out who is bluffing and who is on a streak. As they say in poker, everyone has a tell, and if you are able to hide your eyes from your opponents, that is one tell you don't have to worry about.
The advantage of hologram sunglasses over mirrored or heavily tinted lenses is that hologram lenses do not reflect what the wearer is looking at. So if you are trying to look at your cards, no one else will be able to see what you have.
Pictured to the left is one of the most recognizable wearers of hologram sunglasses in the world of professional poker. Greg Raymer, who is best known for winning the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event, wore the trademarked lizard hologram sunglasses during the event that won him a $5 million dollar prize.
Here at Wholesale Discount Sunglasses we would like to think that there was much more than just skill that helped Greg win the main event. No, we think a certain lucky pair of hologram sunglasses may have had something to do with it as well.
