WE HAVE BEEN DESIGNING THE BEST MINERAL LENSES SINCE 1957.
Handcrafted in our own labs in France near Paris, which received the French certification EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant). Vuarnet mineral lenses are natural and recyclable, unlike “plastic” organic lenses that most brands use for their eyewear.
The production of our mineral glass lenses at VUARNET is an art. One week of work and a seventeen-step process is necessary to produce each lens, from the selection of the best quality raw materials to the exclusive treatments on the lenses with strict quality control at each level. This requirement means that we can guarantee an optical quality perceptible at first sight.
All VUARNET lenses are available in your prescription through our Vuarnet boutiques or authorized optical boutique. Click here.
Mineral glass lenses are composed of silicon dioxide or quartz. They are 100% natural and therefore 100% recyclable. The production is 100% local with the raw material sustainably sourced from Seine et Marne, a few miles away from the manufacturer.
THE BENEFITS OF MINERAL LENSES
Equipped with polarized or Lynx® technologies, all of our lenses guarantee the highest levels of protection, precision and comfort.
Each of our lenses are engraved with our V trademark to guarantee their authenticity.
Although all Vuarnet lenses are suitable for all uses, each lens color offers specific benefits. Read more about it here.
PROTECTION AGAINST UV, BLUE LIGHT
VUARNET mineral lenses filter 100% of UV (UVA, UVB, & UVC) and offer up to 99% protection against damaging blue light, one of the most aggressive lights in the visible spectrum.
DEFENSE AGAINST GLARE AND REFLECTIONS
VUARNET signature and exclusive Lynx™ treatment protects the upper part of the eye against glare and the lower part of the eye against the reverberation of the light on the ground.
AGAINST STRAY REFLECTIONS AND INFRARED RAYS
VUARNET lenses are designed to absorb up to 94% of dangerous infrared, protecting your eyes from irritating dryness, heat, and destruction.
Mirror lenses benefit from an anti-reflection treatment on the internal face, eliminating all unwanted reflections.
VUARNET mineral glass lenses guarantee no chromatic distortion and a vision in high definition.
VUARNET mineral glass lenses provide exceptional clarity, producing sharper vision in comparison to plastic materials.
As proof, all cameras, microscopes and telescopes that require the best optical precision are all equipped with mineral lenses.
Vuarnet mineral glass lenses are naturally scratch resistant even against the most aggressive circumstances, like keys in your bag. However, they are not scratch-proof.
Vuarnet mineral glass lenses are also shock resistant as a result of a safety treatment by chemical tempering.
