18% Amber

18% Amber

These filters provide excellent glare protection, with their large side shields and top lip. If required these filters can be worn on top of normal spectacles so that no additional tinted prescription lenses are required. These filters have 100% UV and Blue Light protection and are the most popular filters for Macular Degeneration sufferers. The amber colour heightens contrast whilst reducing glare.

The U size is the one most suitable for the average adult, the S size is suitable for children from about 9 years of age, as well as some smaller ladies. The L size is suitable for larger adults.

Transmission: 18%

Each filter below has a Visible Light Transmission (VLT) figure, which indicates the percentage of light passing through the filter. A low value will block more light from entering the eye; a high value allows more light into the eye. You should avoid a VLT% that is too dark for your needs for safety reasons.

Please note: Frame images are shown in black and white,  please refer to the colour swatch above as a guide to the tint of these filters.
