ZEISS DuraVision AntiVirus Platinum UV technology

A proven antimicrobial agent built into a premium AR coating as well as new developments in vacuum deposition and materials science enabled ZEISS to develop this antiviral and antibacterial coating.

Use of silver as antimicrobial agent

Silver is well established in science as a long-lasting antimicrobial (antiviral and antibacterial) agent. ZEISS developed technology to incorporate this proven approach as another feature of the premium anti-reflective coating so that viruses and bacteria that land on the lens surface are killed and inactivated.

Vacuum deposition and material science

Through a special vacuum coating process, silver is deposited on the surface of the lens at high temperatures. ZEISS DuraVision AntiVirus Platinum UV contains embedded antimicrobial silver within the coating structure. The silver releases silver ions (Ag), and these ions deliver proven antiviral and antibacterial interaction, essentially creating an antivirus coating.
