When worn, glasses and protective filters com into contact with perspiration, grease, dust, cosmetics, etc., which can have a detrimental effect on their function. Therefore, prior to wear, the glasses should be cleaned by rinsing with running, warm water, possibly using a standard, mild cleaning agent. The glasses should be dried with a soft, clean cloth.



The filters are not suited for use in the following situations: Road traffic with poor visibility (dusk, tunnels, driving at night etc.) Protection against UV radiation from artificial light sources, high altitude solar radiation, and the direct observation of the sun, etc.


During normal and proper use, sunglasses and protective filters demonstrate sufficient, mechanical strength.  However, they only offer limited protection against mechanical influences such as blows and impacts, which under some circumstances can cause the glasses or the filter to break or splinter, and may lead to considerable injury to the face or eyes. During sport or other activities, where such effects can be anticipated, we recommend the use of polycarbonate.
