Choose the Right Glasses Coating for You
Nowadays, eyeglasses are no longer made of traditional glass, but various resins. In order to meet the needs of different groups of people, various functional coatings have emerged in an endless stream, bringing convenience to people's lives. Do you know which coating fits you best?
Various of lenses coating technologies can effectively protect prescription and non-prescription lenses. The coatings can be divided into the following categories:
Anti-Reflection Glasses Coating:
Adding a set of ultra-thin anti-reflection coatings to the lenses surface will greatly reduce glare. Generally, the reflection on both sides of the lenses will cause the wearer to appear glare, causing visual discomfort and reducing visual clarity.
When people driving at night, the anti-reflection lenses can also provide better sight and improve the driving safety. For people who use computers for a long time, lenses with anti-reflective coatings can also reduce visual fatigue. The wearer's eyes will no longer be distracted by reflections with more transparent lenses.
Anti-Scratch Glasses Coating:
The hard layer on the lenses can make the lens surface harder (but it cannot guarantee the lens from breakage, especially when it falls). The technology can prolong the life of lenses and keep the wearer's vision clear after long-term using. However, caution is still needed when cleaning lenses. Wiping lenses with a glasses cloth instead of a paper towel can extend the use time of the coating.
This is ideal for children’s glasses or for adults who are a little more lax with their eyewear care than they should be, scratch-resistant coatings can extend the life of lenses.
Anti-Fog Eyeglasses Coating:
Anti-fog coating can help lens block water molecules and maintain the clear vision. Waterproof lenses prevent water droplets from attaching to the surface. When the lens meets water, the water droplets converge into small droplets and slide down from the lens. But when ordinary lenses are exposed to water, the droplets will diffuse and adhere to the surface of the lenses.
If you live in a cooler climate and keep reliving the annoying experience of having your lenses fog up whenever you go back indoors, an anti-fog eyeglass coating can end this misery. It also may be a good choice for you if you perspire a lot or if fogged-up eyeglasses are going to be a safety issue when driving.
UV-Resistance Glasses Coating:
Adding a transparent light filter layer to the lens can protect eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. This technology can be used in both prescription glasses and sunglasses. Ultraviolet rays can damage the eyes and may cause cataracts and eye cancer.
People who often take part in outdoor sports are suggested to wear a pair of anti-ultraviolet lenses. All sunglasses and ordinary glasses should have the ability of ultraviolet protection.
Blue-light Blocking Glasses Coating:
Blue-light blocking coating is a new optical layer in recent years. Digital screens based on LED technology, such as computers, mobile phones and tablets, emit high-energy harmful blue light with short wavelength, which can directly pass through the lens to the macular area of the eye, leading to macular lesions. The anti-blue layer can effectively reflect harmful short-wave blue light and protect the eyes from harmful blue light through the interference reflection principle of light.
People who use digital devices for a long term need a pair of anti-blue glasses to protect blue light and eye health.
