Lens Coatings / Treatments:
Lens coatings can enhance the performance and appearance of your eyeglass lenses. If you are thinking about purchasing new eyeglasses, here are lens coatings and treatments you should consider.
-Anti - Scratch Coatings
-Anti - Refelective Coatings
No eyeglass lenses, not even glass lenses are scratch proof. However, lenses that are treated front and back with a clear, scratch-resistant coating have a much harder surface that is more resistant to scratching.
AR coating eliminates glare caused by light reflecting from your lenses. Lenses with AR coating provide better vision for night driving and more comfortable vision for reading and computer use.
AR coating is highly recommended for all eyeglasses, but particularly for polycarbonate and high-index lenses, which reflects more light than regular lenses if AR coatings is not applied.
This invisible dye blocks ultraviolet (UV) light. Just as sunscreen keeps the sun's UV rays from harming your skin, UV protective treatments for eyeglasses block those same rays from damaging your eyes. Overexposure to UV light is thought to be a cause of Cataracts, Retinal damage and other Eye problems.
Photochromic lenses are eyeglasses that darken automatically when exposed to sunlight, then fade back when you return indoors. In most cases, photochromic lenses are clear indoors and darken to a sun tint outdoors.
Polarized sunglasses have been popular for years with boaters and fishermen who need to reduce glare from the water surrounding them. Now many others who spend time outdoors have also discovered the benefits of polarized lenses. Anyone who spends time outdoors can now have the benefits of clearer vision and the elimination of glare.
Polarized lenses can also be worn indoors by those who are light-sensitive, including post cataract surgery patients and those continually exposed to bright light through windows.
Sunglasses are a great and inexpensive way to protect your eyes from the sun. Important in summer as well as in winter, proper sunglasses keep the UV rays from affecting your eyes and causing problems such as cataracts. The best sunglasses will protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
Polarized lenses can help if you're on the water since they reduce glare.
Sunglasses can give you instant cool appeal, but they are much more than a fashion accessory.
Sunglasses are an essential tool in safeguarding the health of your eyes and the surrounding tissue.
Just as the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage skin, they can also harm the lens and cornea of the eyes.
UV radiation increases your odds of getting cataracts, which cloud the eye's lens and lead to diminished eyesight. It has also been linked to macular degeneration, a treatable, but incurable disease of the macula, a part of the retina that is essential for sharp vision.
Photokeratitis is a corneal sunburn that's also known as snow blindness. As the name suggests, skiers and snowboarders are particularly vulnerable to this temporary but acutely painful condition.
You may feel less heat from that winter sun, but don't be fooled. Those trendy sunglasses you bought last summer are just as important now. The sun's rays can still do serious damage to your eyes, whether you live in snowy Chicago or sunny L.A. The winter sun sits lower in the sky, and at a different angle than during warmer seasons.
Sunglass lenses comes in all different colors. From brown, amber, and copper to green, gray, rose, and blue. Choose whichever looks best, as there is no relationship between color and UV protection.
