Whether we are at home, at work or shopping, we are exposed to multiple sources of light. Coming from all angles, light reaches your lenses and creates reflections. These reflections can be a source of discomfort and impact your everyday life by making us adopt new behaviours, consciously and subconsciously. We adjust our heads, changing our posture or even remove our spectacle lenses just reduce the visual impacts of reflections. Crizal Sapphire HR reduces reflections regardless of where the light comes from. By reducing the amount of reflections your vision will be purer with more vivid images and improved lens aesthetics when others look at you. Transparency has never been so visible.(4)



It has been found that UV can have a cumulative effect on your eyes contributing to premature eye ageing and is associated as a risk factor of cataracts.(5) Crizal Sapphire HR filters UV rays preventing them from passing through the front of your lens and preventing them from reflecting off of the back of your lens into your eye. Thanks to this unique UV protection enhancement Crizal Sapphire HR has an E-SPF rating of 35, the highest E-SPF index on clear lenses for optimal UV protection.(6)



Crizal Sapphire HR ensures your spectacle lenses are resistant and repellent from scratches, smudges, water droplets and dust particles. Meaning - your lenses are incredibly protected, clear and easy to clean. Which comes in handy when facing everyday activities.
