"The global COVID-19 pandemic has drastically influenced our awareness of viruses and their consequences. We're more focused on the presence of germs and how they spread than we've ever been before," said Madhur Gupta, MD SMAVSEditor Optician India.

He further added, "With this increased awareness, you may have heard of the term "high-touch items". These include things we touch on a regular basis that can impact our general hygiene." Spectacle lenses are high-touch items that can potentially have viruses and bacteria on the surface. To answer this problem, ZEISS has designed an antimicrobial coating called ZEISS DuraVision AntiVirus Platinum UV which kills 99,9% of viruses and bacteria1.
