Fight the UV Front and Back - Sparks & Feros Optometrists

Fight the UV Front and Back

The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate. UV radiation can damage the skin causing premature aging, sun spots and wrinkles, and can even lead to the development of skin cancer.

UV rays are harmful in clear or cloudy weather, and UV damage is cumulative, meaning that it builds up over time without you even being aware of it.

Protecting your eyes and the skin around your eyes everyday is essential to safeguard your long-term vision and eye health.

Wear Crizal Lenses

Did you know that up to 50% of UV radiation penetrating the eyes is reflected off the back surface of the prescription glasses? Most clear prescription lenses claiming UV protection only reduce the transmission of UV through the front of the lens.

Only Crizal UV prescription lenses have been developed by Essilor to provide you with the maximum level of UV protection for clear or Transitions® prescription lenses from the front & back. They protect your eyes from UV by reducing the amount of UV radiation reaching them from the front, through the lens, and also from the sides and behind, by minimising reflected UV rays.

Crizal UV lenses are the only prescription lenses endorsed by Cancer Council, and provide the maximum level of UV protection available for your eyes in clear or Transitions® prescription lenses.

As well as providing the maximum level of UV protection Crizal UV lenses also offers protection against the 5 enemies of clear vision.

  2. Dust
    Crizal UV lenses repel dust and dirt to ensure clear vision is achieved in all environments and weather conditions, and to help protect against scratching and damage.
