Everybody knows about the dangers of invisible UV rays to our skin. But what about our eyes? With the ZEISS C-UVPROTECT, you can demonstrate the level of UV protection in lenses to your patients – without ever leaving your office.
It’s simple. Under UV light and using a special camera, clear lenses appear visibly dark if they block UV up to the World Health Organization standard of 400 nm. The clearer the lenses appear, the less the UV protection.
The C-UVPROTECT is a unique device by ZEISS . It’s a great tool to let your patients experience and understand the importance of full UV protection in their eyeglasses.
In a 2019 survey1 of over 2200 US consumers, 98% said they would be upset if their eye care providers did not offer them full UV protection. 84% would stop using their current eye doctor if they were not provided with lenses that offer full UV protection up to 400 nm.
Clear lenses and slightly dark lenses on the ZEISS C-UVPROTECT indicate incomplete UV protection.
Clear lenses with full UV protection will appear as dark as sunglasses on the ZEISS C-UVPROTECT.
In the exam room or in the dispensary, ZEISS C-UVPROTECT is an easy-to-use tool to engage with patients on the topic of UV protection in eyewear.
- You can easily show patients how much UV protection their current lenses provide.
- It’s a portable conversation starter for ZEISS UVProtect Technology and the importance of UV protection.
- Staff training is quick and simple, as it’s a straightforward dispensing tool.
