Zeiss have launched its ‘UVProtect Technology,’ which provides full UV protection in all clear Zeiss lenses.
Zeiss explains that current standards require clear lenses to provide protection up to 380 nanometres (nm), but 40% of UV radiation in daylight occurs between 380–400nm.
By providing sunglass-level protection in all of its clear lenses, Zeiss said that the risk to a patient’s eye health from UV radiation is reduced.
