Lenses and coatings
Adapting your lenses with the right surface technologies will optimise and protect your vision.Here are just some of the things that our experts consider when choosing your bespoke lenses...
Anti-glare resistant - A set of ultra- thin layers on the lens surfaces that eliminates reflections to dramatically reduce glare. Reflections on both sides of the lens can lead to the wearer experiencing glare, which creates visual discomfort and reduces clarity of vision. An anti-reflective lens also gives better vision for night driving, which means improved safety – and for computer use, which means less eyestrain. As the lenses are more transparent, the wearers eye are no longer hidden behind reflections.
Scratch-resistant technology - A hard film that creates a much tougher surface on lenses. (These are still susceptible to damage, especially if dropped). The technology gives glasses a longer life. This is a must have, and even more so on children’s glasses.
Water resistant - A water resistant treatment that repels water droplets, preserving clarity of vision. Lenses with a water-repellent surface prevents water collecting. The water rolls into small droplets and slides off the lens with ease. With ordinary lenses water spreads and sticks to the surface.
UV protection - A clear filter on the lenses that protects the eyes from damaging UV light, which can be applied to glasses as well as sunglasses. UV light is harmful to eyes, and has been linked to the development of unsightly thickening on the surface of the eyes and cataracts. People who regularly spend time outdoors should opt for UV protection. UV protection is recommended for all sunglasses but can also be applied to clear, everyday lenses too.
Road Pilot - Driving is a passion for some and an obligation for others. We are all spending more time on the road but the same problem comes up every time we are behind the wheel: we don’t feel as comfortable when driving at night. In fact, 17 million drivers in the UK struggle to see at night. We have the solution; we can offer you the Road Pilot lens which offers up to 90% less reflections at night, leading to a decrease in glare therefore offering optimal clarity of vision during the day and night.
