AGW-286 Filter

The AGW-286 is Aura's original split lens filter, featuring two different shaded filters on the same lens split the way you want. A True Didymium™ filter.

You asked, and we answered! This lens is the latest in our catalog for excellent protection against infrared radiation.

The lens consists of a base of our exclusive True Didymium™ filter with an upper section of Green Welding (Shade 3, 4, 5, 6, or 8), and a lower section of Green Welding (shade 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, or 10). You may have your lenses made 50/50 or one-third/two-thirds. The shades in the standard configuration are light on top and dark on the bottom. The reversed configuration (custom-made, not returnable) is dark on top and light on the bottom. Your choice.

The available shade configurations are:

  • 3/5
  • 3/6
  • 3/8 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 3/10 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 4/6
  • 4/8 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 4/10 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 5/8 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 5/10 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 6/8 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 6/10 *Custom made, not returnable*
  • 8/10 *Custom made, not returnable*

This filter is particularly valuable for use in fuming and other tasks where the brightness of the flame is a problem. It will also lend itself to most borosilicate glasswork where larger sculptural work is done. By tipping your head you can change the shade number you are viewing through as the brightness of the glass changes.

The AGW-286 filter is available only in non-prescription, and single vision prescription forms only. Because of the laminations involved, we cannot make this filter in bifocals, trifocals, or progressive forms.

Thickness Advisory: This filter is thicker than normal lenses. In non-prescription form, it is approximately 5 mm thick. Single vision prescription adds at least 1 mm. Shade 8/10 split is about 7 mm thick.

Shade 8 and 10 splits are Custom Made and not returnable except for manufacturing defects.

Shade 8 and 10 splits are not available in prescription form due to the extreme darkness of the filters.

Protected under the United States Patent Number 6,612,697.

AGW-286 - Single Vision Rx
AGW-286 Single Vision prescription lenses. In addition to the desired shade number, we need the following details to correctly manufacture single vision prescription lenses for you: Your prescription as it is written out as it is on the form you received from your optical professional like this: Right Eye Sphere x.xx Cylinder x.xx Axis xxx followed by Left Eye Sphere x.xx Cylinder x.xx Axis xxx. If your prescription requires prismatic correction, please note the amount for each eye after the entry for Axis and the direction: in, out, up, down. If your prescription is spherical only, you may see the letter DS or a line through Cylinder. Just enter the data as shown on your prescription. Replace xx with the numbers on your prescription, please be sure to include any plus (+) or minus (-) signs as indicated. The second thing we need is your Pupillary Distance. This is a measurement of the distance between your eyes and can be listed as a single number, for example: 64, or as a "split PD" such as: 32/32. Either way is acceptable. Note that PDs are required for all corrective eyewear and that we cannot process your order in our lab without it. Failure to provide a PD at the time of your order will result in your order being delayed until we receive it.
