Lens Coatings

Scratch Coating

Scratch coatings increase the life of your glasses. Lenses that are treated with an anti-scratch coating have a much harder surface that is much more resistant to scratches. Daily wear and tear from cleaning cloths, dust, and accidental dings can reduce the life of your eyeglasses. Fortunately scratch coating comes stock on most lenses created today.

Anti-Reflective Coating

Antireflective coatings are thin coatings on the surface of your lenses that appear to have a purplish green hue. They reduce reflections and glare from the surface of the lenses. AR coat elimate the mirror appearance of the lenses, and allow observers to see your face rather than light reflections. AR coatings improve light transmission through the lenses for better night driving, and reduce glare in bright sunny conditions. It is especially recommended for those patients with a higher presciptions and high index lenses as these lenses tend to reflect more light.

Transition Lenses / Photochromics

Transition lenses turn darker when they are exposed to sunlight. Ultraviolet (UV) light is a specific ray of light from the sun that causes damage to our skin cells. UV rays can cause skin cancer, cataracts, and macular degeneration. UV rays cause a reaction within the transition lens to occur. This reaction changes a clear lens (indoors) to turn dark grey or brown, when moved to outdoor sunlight. Transition lenses are great all-in-one lenses for children and adults who require UV protection along with reduction in brightness and glare.

UV protection

The ultraviolet sun rays are harmful to the eyes. They can cause cataracts, macular degeneration, and surface tissue changes. UV protection is recommended for all ages, especially in bright outdoor conditions. UV protection is available as a coating in either spectacles or sunglasses. Transition lenses also provide UV protection as they darken in the sunlight.
