Most of the visible light spectrum is essential for our vision and overall well-being. However, the part of the light spectrum made up of UV and blue-violet light can be the cause of premature eye ageing.

Crizal Prevencia provides protection against harmful light(3) whilst preserving your overall well-being.



Outdoors, whatever the weather, you are exposed to UV rays and Blue-Violet light. Indoors, wherever the place, Blue-Violet light can be present too. The amount of Blue-Violet light emitted from the low energy lighting, LED bulbs in particular, is a significantly lower volume than that emitted from natural sunlight.

Protection is recommended all day long, all year long.

Blue-Violet light has been identified as the most harmful light to the outer retina and over time is one contributing factor of AMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration).(4)

Crizal Prevencia selectively filters Blue-Violet light reducing exposure, supporting retinal cell survival and allows essential visible light to pass through, preserving your overall well-being.

Crizal Prevencia UV  ensures your spectacle lenses are resistant and repellent from scratches, smudges, water droplets and dust particles. Meaning - your lenses are incredibly protected. Which comes in handy when facing everyday activities.

Retinal Pigment Epithelium cells were exposed to Blue-Violet light, reproducing the physiological exposure to sunlight of the 40-year-old human eye.
