Zeiss UVProtect Lens Innovation

4 June 2019

Our Optometrists at Turners, In Bridgwater, Somerset will gauge the benefits of any new technology before prescribing to patients, Turners confidently recommend the lens innovation of Zeiss to provide complete UV protection.

Surprisingly many sunglasses on the market do not completely block the most intense source of UV radiation which accounts for 40% of the total amount of solar UV irradiance. With the launch of UVProtect lens technology, Zeiss has raised the bar in eye care by providing full UV protection up to 400nm in all clear lenses with zero compromise on the aesthetic look and visual clarity.

Zeiss differentiates itself from other optical offerings by providing this and without compromising on clarity. Winning the recent AOP Association of Optometry award for best product this month, Zeiss commented:

“…The public are becoming increasingly more conscious of their health and wellbeing. …Zeiss believe our lens portfolio allows practices to offer customised visual solutions based on patients’ needs and requirements. In addition to UVProtect technology, innovations from Zeiss include the first anti-reflective coating and the award-winning Zeiss DriveSafe: designed to meet the vision needs of people who want to feel safer and more comfortable when driving with their everyday lenses..”

As you try on the latest RayBan, Tom Ford or Oliver People frames, sunglasses or spectacles, whilst we make you a coffee, ask for a ‘bespoke to your lifestyle’ Zeiss lens demonstration. You will be very surprised. We promise.

Covid-19 FAQ's

Whilst transmission is via viral respiratory particles we know that viral particles can be found in the tears and this can cause viral conjunctivitis. It is probable that the affected individual will experience primary symptoms such as fever and cough.

The latest advice for contact lens wearers is that there is no evidence to date that contact lens wear should be avoided by healthy individuals, or that contact lens wearers are more at risk of contracting coronavirus then those wearing spectacles.nTo help maintain healthy contact lens wear, all contact lenses wearers should follow correct lens wear and care instructions, including thoroughly washing and drying your hands before handling, applying and removing your contact lenses. Spectacles should be washed regularly using warm soapy water. In the absence of the diagnosis of COVID-2 and in the absence of symptoms of fever, cough, red eye or discharge and provided that scrupulous hygiene is practised then contact lens wear is permissible. Social distancing ( minimum of 2m) should be exercised. Spectacle wear would be the preferred mode of sight correction or daily wear contact lens wear.
