Lenses for UV Protection

OVEREXPOSURE TO
UVA AND UVB RAYS

Did you know 3.2 million people every year go blind from eye conditions caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays? Though most of us understand the importance of protecting our skin from the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays, most of us don't know that exposing our eyes to the sun's UVA and UVB rays can also be damaging.

PROTECTING YOUR EYES FROM UV

Reduce your exposure to dangerous rays with lenses for UVA and UVB protection. Xperio® sun lenses, Transitions® lenses, and Crizal® coating protect your eyes by blocking UV light.

THE WAY TO PROTECT YOUR EYES IS TO LOOK FOR THE E-SPF® INDEX RATING

The E-SPF® index rating system is the result of several years of unparalleled experimentation initiated by Essilor and validated by independent experts. The E-SPF® 50+ index is the highest E-SPF® index on sun lenses for optimal UV protection outside.

ALL LENSES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL

Crizal® coatings feature the E-SPF® index on all types of lenses, clear and tinted, with a minimum E-SPF® of 25+. That’s because Crizal® coatings, which are trademarked Broad Spectrum Technology™, reduce the UV rays that are reflected into the eye from the back of the lens, without compromising lens transparency.

The E-SPF® index relates to lens performance only and excludes direct eye exposure that depends on external factors (wearer’s morphology, frame shape, position of wear). Except Orma E-SPF® 10 index.
