3 things you need to know about UV filter lenses


Have you ever heard of UV contact lenses? They're a real revolution for contact lens wearers in the summer!

UV contact lenses are specially designed to protect your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays. They have a UV filter that blocks most of the UVB and UVA rays. This means you can enjoy the sun without worrying about your eyes. These lenses are also very comfortable to wear - you won't even feel them!

Here are the 3 things you need to know about UV filtering lenses :

1. They block UV rays

UV filtering lenses are designed to block harmful UV rays from the sun. This can help protect your eyes from UV damage, such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Make sure you choose lenses that block at least 90% of UV rays.

2. They don't replace sunglasses

Although UV filtering lenses provide good protection against UV rays, they are not a substitute for sunglasses. Sunglasses also protect the delicate skin around the eyes and can offer better protection against UV rays coming in from the side. So if you're going outdoors, don't forget to wear sunglasses with your contact lenses.

3. Available for all lens types

UV filtering lenses are available for all types of contact lenses, including disposable, rigid and coloured lenses. Talk to your optician about the best options for you and your eyes.
