Sunscreen for your eyes.

Sunscreen for your eyes.

While scientists celebrate the recent announcement of a reduction in the size of the hole in the ozone layer, one of our most delicate organs remains exposed and at risk to the dangers of UV radiation.

As a nation we have ‘slipped, slopped and slapped’ ever since Cancer Council began their campaign 33 years ago. However, when it comes to ‘sliding on sunglasses’ to protect our eyes against UV, we still have a way to go.

UV radiation can be just as intense on cloudy days as well as fine. For spectacle lens wearers, the recent endorsement by Cancer Council of Essilor’s Crizal UV lenses highlights the simple form that extra protection can take. Crizal UV prescription lenses increase the level of protection for the eyes and skin around them by reducing the amount of UV radiation transmitted through their front surface, as well as reflected off their back surface and on to the eyes and delicate skin surrounding the eyes.

Crizal UV Lenses have been developed by Essilor to provide you with the maximum level of UV protection for clear or Transitions® prescription lenses and are the only lenses to be endorsed by the Cancer Council.

Here at Young Eyes we endeavour to use Crizal UV on all of our lenses to give you the optimum in comfort and protection.
