Scratch resistant

Most people choose plastic lenses because they're lighter than glass and less likely to break.  However, plastic scratches more easily than glass.  So to prolong the life of your lenses, we recommend a scratch-resistant coating.



Removing reflections from the surface of the lens has several advantages.  First, your vision will be better.  Equally important, people can see your eyes more clearly as there are no distracting reflections to get in the way of direct eye contact.

Your eyes will feel less strained if driving at night with spectacles that have an anti-reflection coating, as they help to reduce headlight glare. This anti-reflective treatment can be combined with a scratch resistant coating for optimum lens performance and durability.
