ZEISS Sun Protection Lenses

Enjoying the sun without regrets

In the world of tinted lenses, ZEISS is known for its precise range of tints and technologies used on high quality products.
The range of functional colours available from ZEISS covers special outdoor applications and provide maximum sun protection and enhanced visual contrast.


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.
