Zeiss Debuts UV Screening Technology for Eyes


SAN DIEGO—Zeiss Vision has partnered with Voxelight, LLC, maker of the popular Sunscreenr UV Camera, to develop a new handheld tablet that shows consumers how much protection their eyes have from damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays and how susceptible they are to harmful exposure. Zeiss C-UV400 is designed to illustrate the amount of UV protection present in a pair of eyeglasses, and is the first time eyecare professionals will be able to show patients how much of this invisible light is being blocked.

Displayed on an eight-inch tablet, Zeiss C-UV400 incorporates Sunscreenr’s patent-pending UV camera technology, showing whether or not a person’s eyeglasses are protecting their skin and eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays by using a new indoor light technology. It also showcases Zeiss UVProtect technology, which makes full UV400 protection standard in all Zeiss clear lenses.

C-UV400 technology captures images that help ECPs evaluate and improve UV protection for their patients’ eyes and eyelids. The Sunscreenr incorporates unique AI facial analysis algorithms and a new indoor light technology to recognize if a person’s eyeglasses are not adequately protecting their eyes and skin from UV.
