Exclusive Backside UV Protection
All lenses prevent transmission of UV rays hitting the front side of the lens. However, up until now, even the best eyeglasses did not protect against the remaining danger of the UV rays coming from the back and side of the lens, which can represent up to 50% of damaging UV light.
Crizal Forte UV combines for the first time an exclusive backside UV protection with Crizal’s superior clarity of vision. Thanks to Essilor’s new Broad Spectrum Technology, the thickness of each nanometric layer constituting anti-reflective coating applied to the backside of the lens has been optimized to virtually eliminate UV light reflection into the eyes, while maintaining perfect transparency of the lens.
