100% UV protective glasses

Do you feel great on a sunny day? There’s a good reason. Ultraviolet or UV light transmitted by the sun is a source of essential vitamin D and has a powerful influence on the production of endorphins, your brain’s ‘feel-good’ chemicals. But UV can also be harmful. Hoya’s UV Control guarantees 100% protection against harmful UV.  

The effect of UV exposure

You are probably aware that overexposure to UV can damage your skin, but did you know that your eyes are at risk too – and not just in the summer? We are exposed to UV almost everywhere and at everytime of year. UV is the main cause of eye disorders and diseases, including:

  • Premature eye aging
  • The early onset of cataracts
  • Corneal burns, a painful and irreversible condition

Say no to harmful reflections

Just like sunscreen protects your skin, there’s now an easy way to protect your eyes. UV Control is a unique coating that guarantees 100% protection against harmful UV. All Hoya’s lenses block UV rays from the front. UV Control goes even further. Applied to the back of your lenses, it prevents indirect or reflected UV rays from reaching your eyes.
