Hiya!

Have you ever got fed up of fingerprints on your lenses or been dazzled by headlight glare when driving at night?  Here ‘s how to get the best out of your specs!

When your optician talks about anti reflective lens coating, it might be something you haven’t tried before or even heard of. A lens coating eliminates a lot of the problems and discomfort that spectacle wearers find with an uncoated lens.

One of the most popular types of lens coatings are Essilor’s Crizal Lenses.  This coating protects your glasses against the five enemies of clear vision:

  • reflections
  • smudges
  • scratches
  • dust
  • water

Crizal Coatings

Crizal Lenses have a perfectly smooth surface that lets in light, rather than bouncing off the surface, keeping your vision clear and clean at all times.  The coating is suitable for everyone and there are four types of coatings within the Crizal family to choose from.

One of our lens manufacturers, Essilor has recently launched their new coating, Optifog.  It’s had a really successful launch and has received a lot of positive feedback.

All spectacle wearers have at sometime found their spectacles have ‘steamed up’ moving from a cold to a hot environment, when playing sports or in a work environment. It can happen anywhere and it’s a real inconvenience when it happens!  The Optifog lens completely eliminates the problem giving you fog free vision.  The top layer of Optifog’s moisture repellent properties, once activated it prevents fogging for up to one week.  We have a demonstation in store so please call in to see how it works!
