Do Ombraz offer 100% UVA/UVB Protection?Updated a year ago

Ombraz' Zeiss polyamide optics provide 100% UVA and UVB protection up to 400 nanometers. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends UV protection up to 400 nanometers - meaning our lenses pass rigorous eye-protection standards.

Most industrial safety eyewear only complies with the industry standard, which requires UVA and UVB protection up to 380 nanometres. The latest scientific findings show that the 380-nanometer standard is not enough. Filtering light at 380 nanometers offers 100% protection against UVB rays but only provides partial protection against equally dangerous UVA radiation (at 380 nm, 20% of damaging UVA still passes through the lenses). We are proud that Ombraz' Zeiss 400 nanometer-rated optics also provide 100% protection against harmful UVA radiation.
