I've always been recommending products and telling my readers about the importance of protecting their skin from harmful UV rays. But did you know that those same UV rays have proven to accelerate eye aging and the appearance of cataracts, amongst other vision problems?
In addition, research also shows that 40% of UV rays can reach eyes even when not in full sunlight, and UV is present not just in sun rays but also other forms of light. Just like how sunblock can protect our skin from UV damage and aging, it is imperative to start battling UV rays from reaching our eyes too.
I'm a fan of Crizal by Essilor. I've never had clearer and more durable lenses than Crizal. And now, with the new Crizal UV, besides combating the existing five enemies of vision – reflections, scratches, smudges, water drops and dust – you now can also minimize harmful UV rays from the front and the back of your lenses that assault eyes, thanks to the new exclusive UV protection property of the groundbreaking Crizal UV lenses. Currently, other UV lenses in the market offer only front UV protection, but with Crizal UV, you get total 360degree protection.
Crizal UV lenses come equipped with Eye-Sun Protection Factor (E-SPF) 25, meaning the wearer is 25 times more protected against UV than without any lens.
It is available in clear and Transition lenses. I'm getting these lenses done for my Dad, update you (either in here or on my FB wall) in a couple of weeks!
