Many of our lenses are available with anti-reflection and UV-protective coatings to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays.

Blue-Violet light was recently identified as being harmful to retinal cells, causing long-term damage to your eyes. It can accelerate the onset of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). This vision loss can lead to central blind spots.
UV Rays are as dangerous to your eyes as they are to your skin. Excessive exposure over a lifetime accelerates eye aging and the onset of cataracts. This vision loss can result in the loss of colour vision and make sight cloudy.
