Essilor launches Crizal® Prevencia™ – Available now at Eyesite
Essilor’s Crizal® Prevencia™ is the first preventive lens offering selective protection from harmful blue light and UV rays.
- UV Light is not only a major risk factor for many skin diseases, but is also a risk factor for eye diseases, including cataract.
- Blue-Violet Light is harmful to retinal cells and is one of the risk factors for the onset of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
- AMD is a major cause of severe vision loss and legal blindness in adults over 60—having a family history can increase your chances of developing AMD.
Crizal Prevencia is designed to selectively filter out harmful light while letting beneficial light pass through:
- Crizal Prevencia is proven to deflect harmful Blue-Violet Light by 20%.
- Crizal Prevencia has an Eye-Sun Protection Factor (E-SPF®) of 25, which means it provides 25x times more UV protection for your eyes compared to wearing no lens at all.
Crizal Prevencia lenses work in 3 ways:
- Selectively filter out harmful light (Blue-Violet & UV).
- Allow beneficial light to pass through (visible light, including Blue-Turquoise).
- Maintain excellent transparency (clear No-Glare lens) for optimal vision at all times.
