Contact lenses with a UV filter

Eye healthDavid Faulder

While many standard sunglasses offer some level of UV-blocking, rays can enter from the side to reach the eye with non wrap-around styles. Well-fitting soft contact lenses cover the entire cornea and limbus. Adding a UV-blocker into a soft lens helps to protect both this area and the interior of the eye from the transmission of direct and reflected UV rays. Unlike some standard sunglasses, they are also effective at protecting from the Peripheral Light-Focussing (PLF) Effect.
