In this White Paper, experts from R&D & Marketing introduce Essilor’s latest solution to protect the eyes against harmful light (UV & blue-violet light): Blue UV Capture™ lens.

 

Content

The Blue UV Capture™ lens innovation is designed to protect the eyes against UV rays (100% UV cut from a front angle in all materials[1]) and blue-violet light (up to 3 times more protections than regular prescription lenses[2]) while letting essential light pass through.

This solution was conceived to find the optimal balance between protection from noxious light and lens clarity in all lens materials.

For 1.5 material, Blue UV Capture™ features a new nanotechnology developed by Essilor R&D in order to have an optimal clear lens in this substrate too.

As protection is critical to ocular health management, Essilor strives to offer innovative and appropriate solutions to everybody. Drawing on more than 20 years of expertise and supportive cutting-edge technologies, Essilor today introduces Blue UV Capture™, a lens innovation that offers all wearers efficient everyday protection against harmful light.

[1] Additional UV back side reflection reduction when combined with Crizal® coating.

[2] “Blue UV Capture™ lens feature blocks at least 20% of harmful blue-violet light (up to 455 nm, with the greatest toxicity between 415-455 nm). For Polycar­bonate concave lenses, the harmful blue light blocking percentage might be slightly lower. Regular prescription lenses = 1.5 or Poly material (without blue protection) with Crizal Forte® UV coating at equal center-thickness”.
