When it comes to choosing new eyeglasses, you not only want to look sharp by keeping up with the latest trends, but you want the best function as well. At our West Bronx discount eyewear store, Urban Eyes, we have lens coatings that will not only enhance the performance of your eyeglasses but their appearance as well. If you are thinking about purchasing new eyeglasses, there are some lens coatings and treatments we think you should consider at our West Bronx discount eyewear store.
Anti-reflective coating, is an anti-glare covering that is microscopically thin and multilayered that eliminates reflections from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses. This coating makes your lenses almost invisible so that people can focus more on your eyes, rather than a distracting reflection from your eyeglasses. Also eliminating glare caused by light reflecting from your lenses, anti-reflective lens coating also provides better vision for night driving and makes reading and using a computer more comfortable. Other lens coatings recommended as part of your West Bronx discount eyewear are anti-scratch coating and hydrophobic. An anti-scratch coating can extend the life of your lenses, while hydrophobic coatings prevents the effects of snow, rain, and fog.
No eyeglass lenses, including, glass lenses, are scratch-proof, but we highly recommend scratch-resistant coating at our West Bronx discount eyewear store. Lenses that are coated, front and back with a clear, scratch-resistant coating, have a much harder surface that is more resistant to scratching. Children’s lenses, especially, benefit from a scratch-resistant hard coat for much greater durability. If you live in a colder climate, you’ve experienced your eyeglasses fogging up when you come in from the cold. This also can become a safety issue, since it limits your ability to see clearly until the fog clears. Fog Free lens coating can be applied to plastic, polycarbonate and other eyeglass lenses, including high-index lenses. The anti-fog coating is applied to the lenses before they are cut to fit into your frame from our West Bronx discount eyewear store. We will talk to you about your needs and lifestyle to best suggest the lens coatings that will benefit you the best, keeping you safe and seeing clearly.
