Authorised Prescriber for Crizal UV Lenses

We proudly prescribe Crizal UV lenses, the only prescription lenses endorsed by the Cancer Council.

Most clear prescription lenses claiming UV protection only reduce the transmission of UV through the front of the lens.

Crizal UV lenses are prescription lenses that protect your eyes from UV by reducing the amount of UV radiation reaching them from the front, through the lens, and also from behind, by minimising reflected UV rays.

Crizal UV lenses provide you with the maximum level of UV protection available for your eyes in clear or Transitions® prescription lenses.
