UV rays between 380 and 400 nanometres (nm) are responsible for most UV related eye damage. For this reason, health organisations recommend protection up to 400nm, yet according to Zeiss, up to 80 per cent of clear lenses currently do not offer full UV protection.
It’s easy to tell the difference – clear lenses with partial UV protection appear transparent when taken with a UV camera, revealing that the UV rays are only marginally blocked by the lens. Zeiss offers full UV protection up to 400 nm in clear lenses, and appear as dark as sunglasses when taken with a UV camera.

Zeiss promises: UV rays completely blocked by the lens; full UV protection of the eyes and surrounding area; and clear, all-day spectacle lenses offering the same UV protection as premium sunglasses.
