We are all aware the UV rays can be harmful to your skin but have you ever considered what they do to your eyes? UV rays can seriously damage your vision. At Vision Plus, all our stock single vision lenses come with a Mirage HD coating at no additional cost. Mirage HD coatings give your eyes the best available protection on a clear lens against harmful UV rays. UV rays are a significant hazard for your eyes as well as the skin around your eyes, causing: accelerated skin aging (wrinkles), eye diseases (cataracts), and risks of cancer (90% of skin cancers occur on the face and neck, of which 5 to 10% are on the eyelids). Our lenses are coated on both sides to protect from UV damage from the front of the lens and reflected UV damage off the back of the lens.

UV rays impact us 365 days a year. Forty percent of UV exposure occurs when not in full sunlight (all year long, even in cloudy conditions, and at home) and over 90% of UV rays may pass through cloud cover. Your lenses must respect two criteria to reach the minimum level of protection. They must be able to block at least 20% of harmful blue light while also offering a minimum UV protection of E-SPF 25 protection. The short-term benefits for this are clear: reduced digital eyestrain paired with overall well-being, which includes regulation of sleep/wake cycles, improved mood, and cognitive performances. Mirage HD coating also offers long-term protection, combats premature aging of the eyes (wrinkles), and helps protect against eye diseases such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
