As technology progresses, light pollution accelerates at a similar pace. Uncontrollable light sources hit wearer’s glasses from all directions, which leads to increased visual discomfort. Crizal Sapphire UV successfully resolves this.

Crizal Sapphire UV is the all new anti-reflective coating. It interacts with light by taking into account the visible and ultra violet wavelengths. Crizal Sapphire UV reduces reflections and ghost images increasing transmission of visual information, which ensures wearers are protected from light intensity. And for the first time, multi-angular light directions are now accounted for, meaning wearers will have the clearest vision possible.

How does it work?

Technological break through.

Crizal Sapphire UV is our most invisible coating yet. This is because it takes into account wearers’ needs and real life conditions. Reflections on lenses do not just come from the front but from either side and even behind the wearer.

Introduction of SIO2 nano layer

Innovation is at the heart of everything Essilor do. Over the last four years we have worked on a new SIO2 layer. This layer ensures the combination of Multi-angular technology, E-SPF 35* UV protection levels and a high Colorimetric Robustness.

Optimised layers on front and back  surfaces

Research informed us that both lens surfaces contribute to bothersome reflections. By optimising our algorithms to be faster and more powerful, we were able to reduce the thickness of both front and back coating surfaces and introduce the powerful Multi-angular anti-reflective technology.
