UV and Blue light protection

Nowadays, there is widespread awareness of the dangers of direct exposure of our eyes to sunlight. This is why we often hear about glasses with UV protection in their lenses. When we are exposed to sunlight for extended periods of time, we risk damage to the eyes in the form of disorders such as cataracts, macular degeneration, pinguecula, keratoconjunctivitis and photokeratitis, which, in the most severe cases, can lead to temporary loss of vision. By definition, sunglasses are designed to protect us from harmful solar radiation, but it must be said that not all types of sunglasses are fitted with lenses that block 100% of UV radiation.

Divel Italia logo's evolution.

The pictogram, currently registered all over the world, has been perfected in the lines so as to make it legible at any size.The logotype changes the font, opting for a sans serif, more linear and contemporary.In the logo, Divel has been inserted in bold, to affirm the identity of the company, called by its customers in the common language, in the abbreviated version “Divel”.

The right sunglasses for sport

Three factors come into play in order to pick the right lens for the application at hand: colors, treatments and shapes.

How to choose the right lenses for sport sunglasses

Our eyesight plays a fundamental role in how we see the world around us. With our eyes we look, we examine, we understand, we get excited, we love. Its importance must not be underestimated when it comes to sports. For outdoor sports, protecting our eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays is essential. But we also need to protect our eyes from other external agents.

The color of sunglass lenses

When it comes time to pick a pair of sunglasses, often one of the factors taken into account is the color of the lenses.

The categories of sun lenses

The category of the lens depends on a value called Visible Light Transmission (VLT) or Tv (transmittance value). This is a measure of how much light the lens lets your eyes pass through and is expressed as a percentage.

When we talk about categories of sun lenses, we refer to the percentage % of light that reaches the eye when it passes through a lens.

Fitness for the eyes: an introduction to orthoptics

Vision training? Fitness for the eyes? Our eyes are supported by a fairly complex set of muscles, so it is actually normal that these muscles need to be kept in shape. You may already have heard of certain exercises for the eyes, or orthoptic exercises, but you may not know exactly what we’re talking about unless you’ve already had a need for such exercises.

How do corrective lenses work?

Although digital imaging technology has, in many respects, surpassed the abilities of the human eye — such as in light sensitivity — corrective lenses are, in fact, based on how the human eye functions.

It’s often said that our eyes work a bit like a camera lens.

The functional coatings

Lens coatings serve to protect both the lenses and the person wearing them. By blocking certain types of light as they pass through the lens, we can enhance lenses in terms of look, vision, and overall quality.
