Most clear prescription lenses claiming UV protection only reduce the transmission of UV through the front of the lens.
Crizal UV Lenses are prescription lenses that protect your eyes from UV by reducing the amount of UV radiation reaching them from the front, through the lens, and also from the sides and behind, by minimising reflected UV rays.
DID YOU KNOW... UP TO 50% OF UV RADIATION PENETRATING THE EYES IS REFLECTED OFF THE BACK SURFACE OF THE PRESCRIPTION GLASSES.
Taking UV protection to a new level
We all know UV can damage our skin. But what about our eyes? UV can seriously damage your vision.
Normal UV protection helps shield your eyes from rays that pass through the front of your glasses. Crizal UV goes further, protecting your eyes from UV light reflected off the back surface of your lenses too.
Crizal UV give your eyes the best available protection, on a clear lens, against damaging UV light.
Essilor’s exclusive anti-reflective technology is applied to both sides of the lens so that it also blocks reflected UV rays, which can account for up to 50% of exposure.
Crizal UV lenses also come with a two-year guarantee against scratching and defects.
