WHAT IS lens coating?
Lens coatings are treatments done on lenses that help enhance their performance, durability and even appearance. To help you decide which one best suits your needs, here are some of the most common types of lens coatings: Anti-Glare, Anti-Scratch, Photochromic Lens, Ultraviolet (UV) Protective Coating, Color Tint.
Anti glare coating helps to improve vision, reduce eye stress and make your eyeglasses look more appealing. It is also called Anti-reflective (AR) coating and is highly beneficial due to its ability to eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of your eyewear lenses. It optimizes the visual acuity with lesser distractions. It is especially useful for high-index lenses because these lenses reflect more light than regular lenses. It reduces light transmission which results in improved vision, making things more perceptible to you and makes your eyes look more attractive.
Anti-scratch coating is applied to upgrade the hardness of the surface of your eyeglass. It is specially created to meet the challenges posed by high-traffic applications and to maintain the finesse of smooth surfaces with its anti-scratch properties. You can use a paper towel to clean it, or carry it in your bag without a case and even if it drops out of your hands, the lenses will remain scratch-free and intact with an anti-scratch coating.
- Photochromic Lens
The photochromic lens is also called light-adjusting lenses because of its property to adapt to changing light conditions. When you are indoors a photochromic lens will be clear and when you are outdoors and the lenses get exposed to sunlight will darken automatically. It provides a sunglasses effect.
