The benefits for the wearer

1. Robust
ZEISS lenses with DuraVision Chrome UV AR coating are durable lenses as they are provided with a hard scratch resistant coating.

2. Dirt resistant
Thanks to the ultra-smooth Clean Coat, dust and lint do not adhere to the surface easily.

3. Very easy to clean
The super-slick Clean Coat makes lenses very easy to clean. Lenses with high contact angle repel oil and water more effectively.

4. Anti-reflective properties
Green reflection color provides good anti-reflective properties.

NEW! UV protection
from all sides.

To offer patients true protection, ZEISS has developed an additional anti-reflective layer on the back of the lens, reducing the indirect light reflected into the eye. This extra layer complements the protection offered by ZEISS UVProtect Technology in all clear plastic lenses, which blocks direct UV rays from the front.

More than 90% of UV radiation comes directly from the front. However, a small part approaches the eye indirectly from the sides and back. As some UV rays may be reflected onto the eye by the back surface of the lens, ZEISS anti-reflective coatings are designed to have low reflectance in the UV spectral range.

Back surface UV protection is now integrated as a standard feature into all premium ZEISS DuraVision coatings.
