Your eye health is our priority.
That’s why we have partnered with ZEISS to offer our customers full UV protection in a clear lens.
Everyone thinks about UV protection on a sunny day, but did you know that UV is present all day, every day, regardless of the weather? And although it’s invisible, long- term UV exposure has an impact on your eyes and surrounding skin.
ZEISS has raised their standard of eyecare by including full UV protection across their lens range.
Unlike a coating, these lenses come with UVProtect Technology built in, protecting your eyes for the lifetime of your lens.
– Full UV protection.
– UV rays up to 400nm are blocked by the lens.
– Full UV protection of the eyes and surrounding skin.
– Clear, all-day spectacles lenses offer the same UV protection as premium sunglasses.
The UV spectrum is divided into UVA, UVB and UVC radiation.
UVC radiation does not penetrate the Earth’s atmosphere, but UVA and UVB rays do reach us. This radiation is important for our well-being, it helps our bodies produce vitamin D. However, it can also damage our skin and eyes.
The UV radiation range between 380 and 400 nanometers is the most energetic and harmful part of the spectrum. This long-wave UV radiation penetrates deeper into the tissue and can cause damage.
Over time, constant exposure to UV rays can cause various forms of eye conditions and accelerate the ageing of the skin around our eyes. In fact, UV exposure is a major factor in the development of photokeratitis and cataracts.
