UV LIGHT IS A MAJOR HAZARD TO THE EYE
UV exposure is dangerous not only for our skin, it can also damage the inside of our eyes. This can contribute to several eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Even in cloudy weather, there is still a certain amount of UV radiation.
Clear glasses will help to stop some of this radiation from reaching the eye (the light is filtered as it passes through the thickness of the lens). However, there will also be unfiltered light reflected from the back surface of the glasses into your eye.
UV LIGHT BOUNCES BACK INTO YOUR EYES
In a previous blog, I mentioned the benefits of a Premium Crizal Scotchgard coating (resistant to dust, water, scratches, smudges and glare). This coating has now been improved even further, and now incorporates UV blocking technology to the front and back surface of the lens, giving maximum protection for the wearer, as good as the best sunglasses available.
NOW THERE IS A NEW SOLUTION
Now you can be confident that your eyes will be protected from UV light, even on a dull day when sunglasses might not be an option. Research suggest that we get 40% of UV exposure when we are not in full sunlight!. So it’s like wearing sunblock on your skin… you won’t notice the difference now, but you’ll be glad you did it when you’re older!
