The skin, eyes and area around the eyes are very sensitive to UV radiation.
Most of us know that UV radiation harms the skin, causing photoageing, wrinkles and, in severe cases, skin cancer. Although it’s invisible, long-term UV exposure can cause various eye diseases such as cataracts, macula degeneration and accelerated aging of the tissue surrounding the eyes.
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. Currently up to 80% of clear lenses do not offer full UV protection.
ZEISS sets a new standard by offering sunglass-level UV protection in clear lenses – full UV protection up to 400nm.
UV radiation is always there. All year round, in sunny and overcast conditions.
UV rays are not only harmful to your skin but also your eyes and surrounding area.
A UV camera can reveal what is invisible to the naked eye.
