Sponsored Feature: Test your super toughness with all action specs
A new range of children’s spectacle lenses has been launched, made from the same special plastic used in the canopies of fighter jets.
The material, Trivex, is stated by Specsavers to be more impact-resistant than standard plastics or glass, with the added bonus of offering 100 percent UV protection.
Specsavers’ experts believe they have identified the ideal lens material in their ongoing drive to make children’s lenses as safe as possible. The new SuperTough lenses will prevent any of the familiar breakages to lenses that happen as part of children’s active lifestyles, whether at the critical moment BMX’ing, skateboarding or simply dropping their specs on the kitchen floor.
The new Super Tough lenses are also lighter than standard plastic equivalents, so are more comfortable to wear.
Noel Meehan, chairman of Specsavers in Ireland, says: “We firmly believe that wearing glasses shouldn’t stop children from enjoying an active and energetic lifestyle and we’re so confident about the safety of SuperTough lenses that we guarantee they will not break, crack or chip. They’re absolutely ideal for kids’ glasses.”
SuperTough lenses are available as standard in all Specsavers children’s frames, which include familiar junior brands such as Hello Kitty, Garfield, Barbie, Shrek and The Simpsons.
