What is UV Protection?
Ultraviolet rays from the sun can be harmful to your eyes, and UV protection is now recommended by many eye care professionals. A UV coating can be added to your finished spectacle lenses to absorb harmful UV rays. Many lenses come with built-in UV protection. Increasingly, many parents are making sure that their children are receiving UV protection to ensure the safety of their eyesight for years to come.
Prolonged UV exposure can cause cataracts, and other vision threatening conditions. The importance of UV protection cannot be stressed enough.
