Thus, with developed technology and added features, the premium anti-reflective and durable coatings serve the purpose to kill or inactivate the viruses and bacteria that land on the front surface of ZEISS Lenses.
The actual technology behind ZEISS DuraVision AntiVirus Platinum UV begins from:
- Silver is coated on the surface of the lens at high temperatures using a special vacuum coating technique.
2. The coating structure of ZEISS DuraVision AntiVirus Platinum UV contains embedded antimicrobial silver.
3. Silver (Ag+ ) ions are released by the silver in the coating. On the lens surface, these silver (Ag+ ) ions have been shown to have antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Some viruses remain viable on surfaces for anything from several hours to several days, while others can even remain infective for 2 months or longer. This virus or bacteria survive longer on materials like plastics and as “high-touch” surfaces, spectacle lenses can also carry viruses and bacteria. With the help of anti-virus coating, we can now feel safe while using eyewear but we also have to obey the other guidelines given by the health department from time to time.
