SUN PROTECTION AND DURABILITY

Sunglasses offer visual comfort against bright light in the great outdoors. However, contact with outdoor elements such as sand, gravel and twigs or incidents such as falling off during sports or being tossed in a bag can cause scratches - ruining the comfort and look of your sunglasses. 


To keep your sun lenses looking newer for longer, pair your Xperio® prescription sun lenses with Crizal® Sun XProtect. Crizal® Sun XProtect coating offers superior scratch- and smudge- resistance, (1,2) whilst boosting the UV protection of your sun lenses.

What is Crizal Sun Xprotect?

Crizal Sun XProtect is a lens coating specially designed for sunglasses, offering comprehensive protection for your eyes and sun lenses.

 

  • MAXIMUM UV PROTECTION

MAXIMUM UV PROTECTION

Most sunglasses that are labelled as “blocking 100% UV” only protect your eyes from UV on the front surface of the lens and do not block UV reflection off the back surface of the lens. Yet up to 50% of total eye exposure to UV can be due to reflection off the back surface of the lens,3which may increase your risk of eye disease. 


Crizal® Sun XProtect offers additional protection by also eliminating UV rays and visible light reflections off the back surface of the lens. Crizal® Sun XProtect has the highest UV protection rating, E-SPF 50® - meaning your eyes are 50 times better protected from UV than without any lens.4
