Crizal Sapphire UV

Reflections on lenses don’t just come from the front.

This is Crizal Sapphire UV


Crizal Sapphire UV is our all new anti-reflective coating. It interacts with light by taking into account the visible and ultra violet wavelengths. Crizal Sapphire UV reduces reflections and ghost images increasing transmission of visual information, which ensures wearers are protected from light intensity. And for the first time, multi-angular light directions are now accounted for, meaning wearers will have the clearest vision possible.    


Pure Vision

Improved transmission of visual information reduces ghost images resulting in a decrease of bothersome reflections.

Increased transparency

Everyone wants to be seen in their best light. Crizal Sapphire UV sets a new standard for lens transparency. Meaning wearer's selfies are not interrupted by unwanted lens reflection.

Light protection

100% of UVA and UVB light is reflected, ensuring your patients' eyes are protected.

Lens protection and visual clarity

Crizal Sapphire UV maintains industry leading anti-reflective, scratch resistant, smudge repellent, water repellent and dust repellent benefits ensuring ultimate lens protection.

Enhanced lens protection

 Crizal Forte UV water resistant

Water Repellency

Microscopic gaps in the coating are filled with Hydrophobic (water repellent) molecules. Therefore, smoothing the surface of the lens, which allows water droplets to roll from the lens surface without leaving a trace.

Crizal Forte UV dust repellent

Dust Repellency


An anti-static layer prevents positive dust particles sitting on the lens.

Crizal Forte UV scratch resistant

Scratch Resistance


Lenses are protected by a scratch resistant booster, a nano millimetre layer located behind the AR layer. The scratch resistant booster layer is designed to gradually increases in hardness

Crizal Forte UV smudge resistant


Smudge Repellency


Smudges appear on lenses due to uneven nano molecules found on the surface of coatings. By smoothing fluorinated molecules into a consistent pattern Crizal Sapphire UV coatings offer a superior smudge repellence.


Crizal Sapphire UV technology

Technological break through.

Crizal Sapphire UV is our most invisible coating yet. This is because it takes into account wearers’ needs and real life conditions. Reflections on lenses do not just come from the front but from either side and even behind the wearer.

Research behind Crizal Sapphire UV

A new way of thinking about AR coatings

AR coatings have always accounted for one frontal angle of light. We had to completely rethink how we thought about AR coatings to develop Crizal Sapphire UV's ability to reduce reflections from multiple sources of light.
