Lens

Many people overlook choosing the correct lenses for their lifestyle. The science behind lens coating has grown tremendously and now there are different lenses for every type of lifestyle. Before you can make a decision about adding a protective coating to your glasses, it is important to know the different types of lens available.

Anti-Fog Lenses

If you live in a climate with hot summers or cold winters, you know the irritation of walking out of an air conditioned building and suddenly not being able to see through the fog on your glasses. It is a natural reaction to a drastic change in temperature, but can become a problem, and even dangerous, if it interferes with your eyesight. Anti-fog lenses is new technology that apply a clear coat to prevent your glasses from fogging up. These are perfect children, athletes, and people who work in restaurants walking in and out of coolers all day.

Scratch Resistant Lenses

With the wear and tear your glasses will experience from your everyday life scratches are inevitable. Whether you have glass or plastic lenses, none are safe from the threat of scratches. Scratch resistant lenses provide a clear coating on the front of your glasses to prevent any scratches. This coating is especially helpful for children, who may damage their glasses more easily. While these lenses won’t protect your glasses from all harm, the scratch resistant coating will prevent possible clouding and scratches. Invest in the best, most protective lenses so your glasses can last for years to come.

Anti-Reflective Lenses

If you work in a bright office, in front of a computer screen, or drive at night often you may have dealt with a glare from your glasses. This can be an annoyance and sometimes dangerous by impairing your vision. Anti-reflective lenses provide a thin, clear layer that prevents light from reflecting off your glasses.

Ultraviolet Treatment Ultraviolet exposure is not just a problem for your skin, it is also a problem for your eyes. While you can put sunscreen on your skin, your eyes are often left exposed to these dangerous elements. An ultraviolet treatment to your lenses is not the same as protective sunglasses, instead our treatment provides a clear coating to your glasses that will not affect your field of vision. This coating protects your eyes against harmful UV rays, while keeping your lenses untinted. This is extremely helpful for people who spend a lot of time outdoors, like children, construction workers, and people living in sunny climates.

The science of lens coating is always expanding, and there are advances to the technology occurring everyday. If you have any questions about lens coating call our office at 334-821-3838, our ophthalmologist, Dr. Anz and his highly experienced staff will be happy to discuss them with you.
