Harmful light

Learn how to avoid the harmful light!

  • The protection against overexposure of UV light and blue light is naturally particularly important in bright situations like in snow, on the water or at the beach. On top of this, you should keep in mind the following:
    High altitude increases UV intensity and is for example1.5 times more pow-erful at 3,000 meters than at sea level.
  • On a cloudy day you are still being exposed to hazardous light, even though direct sunlight is blocked.
  • When the sun is low in the sky, e.g. during mornings and afternoons, the exposure of harmful light may be higher than you think.
  • Even in the shadow, our eyes are exposed to almost 50% of the direct UV radiation from the sun.
  • 40% of the UV rays that reach your eyes have been reflected from the surroundings and reach your eyes from the sides, underneath the glasses, from above, from your cheeks and are even reflected from the inside of the lenses of your glasses.
  • A hat or a cap does not give enough protection even though it gives a good base protection.
