Choose the Right Glasses Coating for You


    Nowadays, eyeglasses are made of various resins instead of traditional glass. Various functional coatings have emerged in an endless stream in order to meet the needs of different groups of people, which brings significantly convenience.

    Various of lenses coating technologies can effectively protect prescription and non-prescription lenses. However, do you know which coating fits you best? VlookOptical will give you some help about that, the coatings can be sorted into the following categories:

    Anti-Reflection Glasses Coating:

   Generally, the reflection on both sides of the lenses will cause wearer feeling glare, leading to visual discomfort clarity.  However, adding a set of ultra-thin anti-reflection coatings to the lenses surface will greatly reduce glare.

    When people driving at night, the anti-reflection lenses will also provide better sight and improve the driving safety. For people who use computers for a long time, lenses with anti-reflective coatings will also reduce visual fatigue. The wearer's eyes will no longer be distracted by reflections.

    Anti-Scratch Glasses Coating:

    The hard layer on the lenses will make the lens surface harder (but it cannot guarantee the lens from breakage, especially when it falls). The technology can prolong the lifespan 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 dramaticallly extend the using time of the coating.

    This is ideal for children’s glasses or those adults who are a little more lax with their eyewear care. Scratch-resistant coatings can extend the life of lenses for these people.

    Anti-Fog Eyeglasses Coating:

    Anti-fog coating can help lens block water molecules and maintain 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 eventually. While ordinary lenses are exposed to water, the droplets will diffuse and adhere to the surface of the lenses.

An anti-fog eyeglass coating can end this misery if you live in a cooler climate and keep reliving the annoying experience of getting your lenses fog ged up whenever you go back indoors. It also may be a good choice for you if you perspire a lot or when you are driving.

    UV-Resistance Glasses Coating:

    Ultraviolet rays can damage the eyes and cause cataracts and eye cancer. 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.

    VlookOptical recommend those people who often take part in outdoor sports to wear one pair of anti-ultraviolet glasses, no matter it is sunglasses or ordinary glasses.

    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 and harmful blue light in short wavelength. Blue light 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 eye health.
