When you are outdoors doing your favorite activity, your eyes are exposed to several threats, such as impacts, irritating glare, dust and electromagnetic waves emitted by the sun. Besides ultraviolet rays, your eyes are also exposed to an invisible enemy: infrared radiation.
Up to 53% of sunlight is made of infrared radiation which cannot be seen by the human eye, but is perceived as heat. Heat raises the overall temperature of the eye, ultimately causing visual loss, haze, flare and dry eye syndrome. Prolonged exposure may seriously damage the eye, especially the crystalline lens and the retina, causing edema and cataract.
ZEISS developed the ultimate outdoor lens which keeps your eyes safe from environmental hazards and blocks 91% of infrared radiation.
With the Thermo Force polarized lens you get:
- Infrared protection – stops up to 5X more infrared light than standard polarized lenses
- Glare free vision – thanks to the polarized filter, for high image definition and contrast
- Shatter resistance – Thermo Force material molecular structure is higher and more impact-resistant than polycarbonate
- Total UV Protection
- Visual clarity – prevents visual fatigue thanks to low haze and high material transparency
