LENS COATINGS

ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATING

Lenses with Anti-Reflective Coating (also called "AR coating") enhance vision by reducing reflection and increase transmission of light. It also reduces eye strain, improves the cosmetic appearance of your glasses, and makes thick lenses look thinner.

These welcoming qualities come into play since AR coating can virtually eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of eyeglass lenses. With reflections gone, more light passes through your lenses to optimize visual acuity with fewer distractions, thus making your lenses look almost invisible. This is how AR coating boosts your appearance by drawing more attention to your eyes and facial expressions; it makes you look your best in all lighting conditions. What's more, it offers you greater comfort during prolonged computer use and for drivers, it works especially well at night to bring you visual benefits like sharper vision with less glare when driving.

SCRATCH-RESISTANT COATING

A Scratch-Resistant Coating is a thin film of hard coatings on the surface of plastic lenses to improve its scratch resistance. Scratch-Resistant Coatings are available to protect against damage like dropping your glasses on the floor and prolong lenses life. Kids' lenses, in particular, benefit from scratch-resistant hard coating for extra durability.

Do note that no matter how great Scratch-Resistant Coating works, it cannot 100% protect your lenses from scratches resulted from daily wear and tear. To avoid scratching your lenses, wash them only with water and neutral detergent to wash away any grease and then wipe them dry with a soft cotton or microfiber cloth. Never use paper products like paper towels or tissues, abrasive cleaners, glass cleaners, or other solvents as these can scratch, weaken, or crack the lenses.

BLUE BLOCK COATING

Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum and is emitted by the sun and artificial light sources such as LEDs, computers, and smart phones. Researchers believe that an extensive exposure to blue light, which is emitted from such digital devices, can result in macular degeneration and retina damage. Other potential hazards associated with blue light include eye fatigue, blurred vision, headache, sleep disorders. Hence it is a great concern to get rid of blue light if at all possible to improve visual comfort and free yourself from the blues, bringing your everyday life back on track.

Blue Block coating usually has a minimal tint which can be worn full time for all activities. This is also crucial to kids' eyewear. Make sure any lenses you ordered come with Anti-Reflective coating as well as Blue Block coating to well protect your children's eyes from the high-energy blue light they are exposed to, almost every day, by today's standard.
