Spectacle Lens Coatings

Scratch Resistant/ Hard Coating

Plastic lenses are lighter than traditional glass lenses but they scratch more easily. Scratched lenses can be irritating for the wearer and look unsightly. Scratch resistant coatings are available to protect against damage and prolong lens life.

Anti Reflection Coating

Spectacle lenses can be provided with anti-reflection coating which virtually eliminates distracting reflections off the lens surface. Reducing reflected light is particularly helpful for computer users and for night driving. Anti reflection coatings also improve the cosmetic appearance of your glasses and can make thick lenses look thinner.

Multi Coated Lenses

LONGLIFE

Multi coated lenses incorporate a combination of coatings; anti reflection, scratch resistant and oleophobic and hydrophobic properties.

UV Control Lenses

This coating incorporates all of the above multi-coating’s benefits, as well as blocking 100% of UV (ultra-violet) light from penetrating the lens surface. This is especially effective for those who have had cataracts removed as well as those who travel to hot or humid countries where exposure to UV is increased.

BlueControl Lenses

This coating also incorporates all of the multi-coating’s benefits, as well as limiting the amount of blue light that penetrates the lens surface. This has been proven to reduce eye strain and fatigue for VDU and digital device users. They are also beneficial to those who have cataracts as it reduces the glaring effect caused by the cataracts themselves.
