Crizal Prevencia Kids No-Glare Lenses Now Available On VSP Formulary

By Essilor News


DALLAS – Aug. 29, 2014 – Just in time for the back-to-school season, Essilor’s groundbreaking Crizal®Prevencia™ Kids No-Glare lenses are now available on managed vision care plans offered by VSP. Crizal Prevencia Kids are the first No-Glare lens specially designed for children to selectively block harmful blue light and UV while allowing beneficial light to reach their eyes.

Some light is, of course, necessary for children’s vision. Blue-turquoise light helps kids see more clearly, regulates their sleep cycles and supports healthy memory, mood and brain functions. This makes the selective filtering protection of Crizal Prevencia Kids No-Glare lenses essential.

“Children are more vulnerable to the dangers of light, and at home and school, kids are exposed to more blue light from television, computers, video games and digital devices than ever before,” said Howard Purcell, O.D., F.A.A.O., Dipl., and senior vice president of customer development, Essilor of America. “We’ve worked closely with managed care providers to enhance children’s access to the Crizal Prevencia Kids technology, because we recognize how important this superior protection is for the healthy development of their eyesight, and subsequently, their learning and educational performance.”

Expressly engineered for children ages 5-12, Crizal Prevencia Kids No-Glare lenses are scratch- and impact-resistant to help them last longer, feature a superior smudge-resistant technology that makes them easy to clean, and prevent tired eyes and headaches by reducing glare from fluorescent lights, whiteboards and computer screens.

Crizal Prevencia Kids No-Glare lenses are only available through authorized independent eyecare professionals. To find an authorized Crizal eyecare professional near you, visit
