What are lens coatings and options
An anti-reflective (also known as anti-glare) coating prevents reflections from appearing on both the inside and outside of your eyeglass or sunglass lenses. No reflections on your lenses means more light is reaching your eyes, which inevitably improves your vision.
Anti-reflective coating glasses lenses are practically invisible, so your eyes will look better and your stylish frames can take centre stage.
All our single vision lenses come standard with an anti-reflective coating FREE of charge. High-index lenses naturally reflect more light, so this is an important addition if you’re interested in thinner lenses.
Allows more light to reach your eyes, improving visual acuity.
Reduces vision-obstructing glare — extra important for driving.
Makes your eyes more visible behind your lenses, so your facial expressions are easier to see.
On sunglasses, it prevents sunlight from reflecting into your eyes when the sun is behind you.
No pair of glasses is indestructible, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be protected. Anti-scratch coating defends your lenses against scratches and abrasions from everyday wear and tear, and helps reinforce them against drops.
Everyone can benefit from a little extra protection, which is why all of out glasses come FREE with is this coating.
Dark Tint Coating
Dark-tint lens coatings are amazing for general outdoor sunglasses and everyday use. These lenses have a full dark tint allowing for great sun protection and privacy.
Gradient Tint Coating
Gradient-tint lens coatings are excellent choices for sun wear. These lenses have a dark tint at the top of the lens and then progressively lighten toward the bottom. The resulting lens gives the wearer plenty of sun protection, as well as privacy, but offers you varying degrees of light.
If you are looking for sun protection, but are uncomfortable with uniformly dark sunglasses, consider gradient tint coatings instead.
This coating reduces the annoying, and sometimes dangerous, reflections on your lenses created by water, roads and other surfaces. These reflections can be distracting or obtrusive, posing a danger to you and your well-being if you are traveling. Our coating are in standard, dark brown or dark grey tints, so you have options for the look of your lenses.
If you drive or bike frequently, and travel along bodies of water or slick roads, you could greatly benefit from polarized coating.
Blue Light Blocking Coating
Blue light blocking glasses have a specially crafted coating on the lens that are said to block or filter out the blue light given off from digital screens.
The lenses protect your eyes from glare and can help reduce potential damage to your retina from prolonged exposure to blue light. Blue light has shorter wavelengths and higher energy than other colours.
If you do have long daily exposure to blue-light at irregular time periods- e.g using digital devices for long periods and late at night. It may help regulate your circadian rhythm and improve your quality of sleep. The blocking aspect will also mitigate possible damage to the retina from long exposure.
