DuraVision BlueProtect UV - the solution for indoor activities

ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect UV reflects parts of the blue-violet light emitted from LEDs as well as TV, computer or tablet screens, preventing it from entering the eye.

ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect UV reflects parts of the blue-violet light emitted from LEDs as well as TV, computer or tablet screens, preventing it from entering the eye.

This ZEISS coating reduces the transmission in the spectrum of 380–455 nm (blue light hazard) while keeping the high transmission level above 460 nm.

Our exposure to blue-violet light may not always be the same.

However, we must always enjoy comfortable vision.

Pro

Contra

Regulates circadian rhythm (day-night rhythm)
There is a body of evidence to suggest that blue light in the spectrum between 400 and 520 nm with a maximum at 460 nm is important for the proper regulation of melatonin in the body, which influences circadian rhythms (day-night rhythm) and general well-being.

Increases risk of macular degeneration
On the other hand, there is a body of evidence to suggest that long-term exposure to blue-violet light below 460 nm, with a maximum at 440 nm, may contribute to photochemical damage of the retina, increasing the risk of macular degeneration over time (known as the ‘blue light hazard’).

Requirements in terms of blue-violet light blocking.
Exposure to harmful blue-violet light varies greatly indoors and outdoors. It is important to have adequate blocking of the blue-violet light depending on its intensity.

The benefits for the wearer

  • Address consumers’ health concerns with ZEISS blue-violet light blocking solutions.
  • Offer a comprehensive portfolio that takes into account the different intensity levels of harmful blue-violet light in indoor and outdoor activities.

The ZEISS Blue-Violet Light Blocking Portfolio -

made to fit any situation of blue-violet light exposure.

ZEISS offers a comprehensive blue-violet light blocking portfolio that meets different consumer requirements for indoor and outdoor activities, filtering different amounts of blue-violet light depending on the activity.

Sunglass lenses or self-tinting lenses with ZEISS PhotoFusion feature 100% UV protection when you’re outdoors in the sun. An optional enhancement for indoors: ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect UV. This lens coating also filters out blue light with non-tinted lenses.

NEW! True UV protection
from all sides.

To offer patients true protection, ZEISS has developed an additional anti-reflective layer on the back of the lens, reducing the indirect light reflected into the eye. This extra layer complements the protection offered by ZEISS UVProtect Technology in all clear plastic lenses, which blocks direct UV rays from the front.

 

More than 90% of UV radiation comes directly from the front. However, a small part approaches the eye indirectly from the sides and back. As some UV rays may be reflected onto the eye by the back surface of the lens, ZEISS anti-reflective coatings are designed to have low reflectance in the UV spectral range.

Back surface UV protection is now integrated as a standard feature into all premium ZEISS DuraVision coatings.
