Field of use
Borba sunglasses protect the eyes from the harmful and unpleasant effects of the sun’s rays. They comply with the essential safety requirements set by European Directive 89/686/EEC and subsequent revisions and meet the EN ISO 12312-1 standard.
Limitations of use
Not for direct observation of the sun or for viewing of solar eclipses. – Not for protection against artificial light sources (e.g. solaria). – Not for use as eye protection against mechanical impacts hazards, during which the sunglasses could break, causing injury to the face and eyes. – Not suitable for driving at night or under conditions of dull light. – Sensitivity to light and glare, especially in cases of bright sunlight and strong sun glare, such as on snowfields, at the beach or at sea, varies from one person to another but it must be considered that the lightest filters reduce solar radiation only slightly in the visual field whilst guaranteeing excellent protection in the UV area.
Storage and Maintenance
Store the Borba sunglasses in their case at a temperature between -10°C and +35°C. Keep away from direct sunlight and avoid exposure to high temperatures, such as the heat in a car without conditioning (e.g. car dashboard), because high temperatures may alter the features of the glasses. Replace the sun filters if damaged (e.g. scratched, opaque). Use only original accessories and spare parts.
Use a damp cloth and mild soap to clean the glasses, then dry them with a soft, clean cloth. Do not use solvents (e.g. alcohol, acetone) or aggressive detergents which may alter the features of the glasses.
