What is UV400 Protection

What is it, and why do all SCOPE SUNGLASSES sunglasses HAVE to have it?


The effects of the sun and UV radiation on the skin are well-known. UV protection in the form of sunscreen is one of the most vital products that a person can buy, whether they are headed to the beach for a summer vacation or they simply need something to protect their skin on a day out running errands.

It is just as important to protect the other parts of one's body - especially the eyes. The eyes are particularly susceptible to damage from the sun. Many people may believe that as long as they never look directly at they sun, they are protected from potential damage; however, people are exposed to sunlight everywhere they go.

It is especially important to protect the eyes when an individual is in a situation where prolonged exposure to reflected sunlight is necessary. An example of this might be driving, as the sun's light can be reflected from the pavement and through a car's windshield. Other examples may include the sun reflecting off of snow or off of a large body of water. If an individual is not protected, they could be at risk for serious damage to their eyes, which can lead to a number of issues including cancers of the eye, vision loss, and blindness. Having the best protection for one's eyes as is possible is crucial - that is where UV 400 protection comes into play.

How UV 400 Protects the Eyes

UV 400 indicates an eye protection item that has been optimized to prevent eye exposure to both UVA and UVB radiation. One of the biggest differences between UV 400 protected items as compared to other items that protect against the sun's radiation is the fact that UV 400 protected items are capable of blocking light rays as small as 400 nanometers. This means that anywhere from 99 to 100 percent of the sun's harmful radiation is kept away from the eyes, which can make a big difference in eye protection.
