Does Crizal have UV protection?

Yes! All Crizal lenses offer the most complete daily protection against the invisible and often irreversible dangers of UV reflection.

Why do I need UV protection?

Just as your skin needs protection from the sun, your eyes do too. UV damage is cumulative and is often irreversible. Long-term exposure to UV radiation can damage the eye. UV can increase the risks of certain eye conditions and diseases, such as UV-related cataracts, growths on the eye and even certain skin cancers on the eyelids or around the eye area.

Crizal No-Glare lenses helps provide 25 times more protection against the damaging rays of the sun with an Eye-Sun Protection Factor (E-SPF®) of 25*

What is UV light?

Sunlight is the primary source of ultraviolet radiation. UV light comes from all directions, reflecting off surrounding surfaces and creatingdangerous exposure

Why would I wear eye protection when it’s cloudy outside?

Over 40% of annual UV exposure is received during conditions when people arenot in full sunlight and are less likely to wear protection. Complete UV protection on your everyday clear lenses can help protect the long-term health of your eyes.

Why would I need UV on the backside of my lens if it’s already on the front side? Isn’t that enough protection?

UV light comes from all directions, reflecting off surrounding surfaces and creating dangerous exposure.The back surface of everyday clear glasses has been found to reflect light coming from the back and sides of the lens, increasing UV light exposure to the eyes.

Most sunglasses and clear lenses with higher quality materials block UV lightfrom transmitting through the front of the lens, but they do not address the UVlight reflecting off the backside of the lens

What are the side effects of UV?

Premature signs of aging, skin cancer, eye disease, wrinkles, dark circles.
