UV and IR protection is very important to preserve the health of the eye.
All lenses, also the lightest in color, are strictly UV400, to provide superior protection to the standard UV100%. To guarantee the total visual comfort, all lenses of the collection come with the multiplayer anti-reflection and the hydrophobic and oleophobic treatments
Barberini Eyewear is an innovative project with a very great history behind it. A new generation line of glasses and a different way to look at the future.
Based on Barberini S.p.A.’s tradition and know-how, glass lenses are the focus of Barberini Eyewear’s project.
The aim is to provide an eyewear collection that offers the best quality, protection and visual accuracy in the world, by applying the technological innovations developed by the head office and pursuing the same quality standards in every detail and constructive element.
Optical glass is the material that provides the best vision possible, thanks to the geometric perfection of the lens and its crystalline purity. The dimensional stability and the high resistance to abrasion maintain these characteristics that remain unaltered over time.
Barberini’s Research and Technological Development have further improved the performance of glass lenses also overcoming the traditional limits of weight and resistance, thanks to the reduced thickness and the hardening methods.
Barberini Eyewear’s collection was designed starting from the quality of the glass and using only the most innovative and performing material: Platinum Glass™.
Barberini Platinum Glass™ is a premium optical glass whose name was inspired by the production process. The oxides mixed is melted in special furnaces and refined through a column of pure platinum, so as to obtain a glass lens free of any impuritiy.
During the fusion some minerals, called Rare Earth Elements are also added, to enhance the visual contrast, operating as a chromatic equalizer.
