Every patient deserves protection - but other lenses on the market only protect through part of the spectrum, and are often cost-prohibitive.

 

epik™ BLUE lenses powered by UVhp™ go beyond UV and are the best performing lenses available today - absorbing approximately 60% of blue light rays between 380-450nm, and up to 90% between 380-420nm, the range others miss out on. 

Available in:

  • CR-39

  • Polycarbonate

  • Trivex™

  • TriBrid™ 

  • 1.60

  • 1.67

  • 1.74

Depending on the lens material selected, epik™ BLUE absorbs up to 60% of blue light in the hazard range of 380-450nm; and up to 90% from 380-420nm. 

Protection without compromise.


epik™ BLUE is a clear lens material that mimics the protective tint that develops in the eye’s crystalline lens as we mature.

 

A combination of proprietary optical pigment and melanin is infused directly into the lens material to create a lens that is inherently UV and blue light absorptive.​

:  Blue light absorptive lens material – not a coating

:  Absorbs virtually all blue light below 420nm, with significant absorption up to 450nm

:  Allows beneficial blue light to pass through while being virtually clear - no yellow tint

:  Available in the widest range of materials on the market and in plano

:  Compatible with Infinity® Non-Glare coatings
