Revision Awarded New Contract Valued at up to $14M to Supply Prescription Carriers to U.S. Troops
Revision, the leading developer of ballistic protective eyewear for militaries worldwide, has secured a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to supply its Land Forces with Revision’s Prescription Rx Carrier over the next five years. It has an estimated value of up to $14 million during the life of the contract. Once prescription-filled, the Rx Carriers provide vision correction for troops who need improved vision in all environments – including laser-threat situations. Revision’s Prescription Lens Carrier was selected for its interchangeable design and its high-impact ocular protection that has been demonstrated through the numerous testing procedures required by military standards.

“With the Prescription Lens Carrier, soldiers who require vision correction can have the advantages of ballistic protective eyewear in theatre, without compromising optical clarity or field-of-view, and without wearing cumbersome goggles or large-framed spectacles over their normal prescription eyewear. The rugged and customizable Rx Carrier allows all soldiers to perform at their best while being protected from ballistic, laser and environmental threats as the Rx insert fits snuggly behind the lenses of either the Revision Sawfly Spectacles or Desert Locust Goggles, the protective eyewear issued to thousands of U.S. troops,” said Dan Packard, Senior Vice President of U.S. Military Sales for Revision. He went on to say, “The Directorate of Medical Materiel has recognized that battlefield vision correction is a necessity to allow for a soldier’s peak performance and the Rx Carriers fulfill this requirement. Revision is proud to have been awarded this contract.”
Revision’s Prescription Rx Carrier accommodates single vision prescriptions up to +/-11 and fits into the Revision Sawfly® Spectacles, and Desert Locust®, Asian Locust™, and Bullet Ant® Goggles. Its secure press-fit design ensures that it is properly positioned every time and its rugged and ergonomically designed frame provides wide field-of-view and durability. Revision’s Prescription Rx Carrier meets ANSI Z87.1-2010 ballistic impact requirements and is on the Army Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL).
