Anti Smudge & EMR Treatment
Thanks to recent advance in the production of lens coatings, the surface of the finished lens is absolutely smooth, this means impurities can no longer stick to the surface giving you a clearer vision with enhanced clarity, to find out more click here.
UVC: These rays are filtered out by our ozone layer which surrounds the earth so are not of concern to us
UVB: These rays are accountable for sunburn
UVA: These rays are possibly the most harmful, causing chronic damage to the eye, especially low dose exposure over a long period of time.
When selecting this additional coating you will be getting the maximum protection you require, to find out more click here.
Unfortunately no lens material will be scratch proof, they would have to made of solid diamond to be completely scratch resistant! Nevertheless adding a Scratch-Resistant coating will extend the life of the lens preventing the small scratches that occur through day to day handling and cleaning. A scratch free lens means clearer vision, to find out more click here.
