UV Protection Lenses with Nupolar®
UV protection lenses, like Solaire®, are designed to protect the eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Exposure to UV radiation can cause several eye problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, and photokeratitis (sunburn of the eye). Solaire® lenses with Nupolar® technology are coated with a unique material that absorbs UV radiation, reducing the amount that reaches the eye and helping protect the eye's delicate tissues. In addition to protecting against the harmful effects of UV radiation, Solaire® lenses can also help to reduce glare and improve visual clarity, making them a popular choice for outdoor activities such as skiing, golfing, and driving. Overall, Solaire® UV protection lenses provide many benefits for eye health and visual comfort, making them an essential consideration for anyone who spends a significant amount of time outdoors.
Several key factors to consider when choosing UV protection lenses such as Solaire®:
- Material: The material that the lenses are made of can affect their ability to block UV radiation. Some materials, such as polycarbonate, are naturally UV resistant and provide good protection. Other materials, like CR-39, may require additional UV-blocking coatings to provide adequate protection.
- Coating: Solaire® UV coating is applied to the lenses using a proprietary process that ensures consistent and effective coverage. The coatings are durable and resistant to scratching, making them a good choice for everyday wear.
- Colour: The colour of the lenses can also affect their ability to block UV radiation. Darker lenses generally provide better UV protection than lighter lenses. Solaire® UV lenses come in various UV-blocking colours, from medium-dark grey to medium-dark brown.
- Fit: The fit of the lenses is essential because it determines how much UV radiation can reach the eye from the sides and top of the frame. Solaire® UV lenses fill fit almost any frame to provide maximum protection. Lenses that fit close to the face and have a wraparound design can offer better protection.
- Usage: Solaire® lenses are designed to offer maximum UV protection regardless of your activity or outdoor environment. The amount of time spent outdoors and the intensity of the UV radiation can also affect the effectiveness of UV protection lenses. Wearing UV protection lenses consistently, especially during peak UV hours and in high-altitude or reflective environments, can help maximize the lenses' benefits.
