Different Lens Coating Options for Prescription Glasses

Different Lens Coating Options for Prescription Glasses

Glasses are highly customizable because you can mix-and-match frames, lenses and coatings to build the perfect pair for your needs. Lens coatings can make a big difference in your vision and you can tailor lenses by adding multiple coatings.

Scratch Resistant Coating – Adds an extra layer of protection to your lenses.

Anti-Reflective Coating – Helps prevent back-glare—light bouncing back into the eye from the back of the lens.

Mirror Lens Coating – Applied to the front of lenses to reflect light, causing the lenses to appear as a mirror.

Anti-Static Coating – Will attract less dirt and help keep lenses cleaner.

Water Repellent – Allows water droplets to run off the lenses helping to clear up vision in less-than-ideal conditions. Also provides protection again fingerprint smudges.

UV Protection Coating – Protects eyes and vision from harmful ultraviolet rays. Some lenses like polycarbonate and Trivex provide complete UV protection without any additional coating.

Tints and Colours – Lenses can also be tinted or coloured to block certain colours from passing through the lenses.

Blue Light Reduction Lens Coating – A popular tint that can reflect the blue light emitted from digital devices, helping reduce eye strain and eye fatigue.
