The amber color of these impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses block short-wavelength blue light and 100% of ultraviolet (UV) light, thus providing additional protection against cataract formation and the development of macular degeneration, while increasing contrast on both sunny and bright hazy days.
SolarShields may be worn alone, but also fit over your existing prescription eyeglasses. SolarShields® block solar radiation in three ways:
- A unique top shield blocks direct overhead sun rays (like a brimmed hat).
- Wide side shields screen out peripheral sun rays while permitting protected side vision.
- A patented polycarbonate lens filters out 100% of UV sunlight.
