Everybody knows about the dangers of invisible UV rays to our skin. But what about our eyes? With the ZEISS C-UVPROTECT, you can demonstrate the level of UV protection in lenses to your patients – without ever leaving your office.
How it works
It’s simple. Under UV light and using a special camera, clear lenses appear visibly dark if they block UV up to the World Health Organization standard of 400 nm. The clearer the lenses appear, the less the UV protection.
The C-UVPROTECT is a unique device by ZEISS . It’s a great tool to let your patients experience and understand the importance of full UV protection in their eyeglasses.
In a 2019 survey1 of over 2200 US consumers, 98% said they would be upset if their eye care providers did not offer them full UV protection. 84% would stop using their current eye doctor if they were not provided with lenses that offer full UV protection up to 400 nm.
