Better safe than sorry
When exposed to high levels of UV light, the eyes need effective protection to prevent such disorders as conjunctivitis or snow blindness. While UV radiation in large cities is decreased by smog and exhaust fumes, it is increased by the strong reflection of light on bright, sandy beaches or on water. UV exposure is also higher at high altitudes, and if freshly fallen snow is also present, up to 80% of the UV radiation is reflected.
All ZEISS sun protection lenses therefore provide reliable protection against UV radiation.
A pair of sunglasses protect the eyes not only against UV radiation, but also against glare. Glare reduces the clarity of our vision and can even lead to eye irritation and headache. If, as in Skylet® sunglass lenses from ZEISS, the blue portion of light is more strongly absorbed, a marked increase in contrast can additionally be achieved. This results in comfortable, clear vision with astounding contrast.
...used as fashionable accessories, the main purpose of coloured lenses is to protect the eyes from UV radiation and glare.
ZEISS is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of eyeglass lenses, and is committed to delivering maximum precision and comfort. ZEISS designs and produces lenses, instruments and measurement systems, as well as retail concepts and technology services that continue to raise the bar in vision care.
