Advances in technology affects every aspect of our lives. From smartphones to electric cars, technological improvements make things easier, safer, and better. And the field of optometry is no different. The latest advances have now given us the clearest and most reliable lenses ever. Crizal lenses eliminate glare and reflections giving you the best vision possible, and offer greater protection for both your spectacles and eyes.

Crizal lenses are a coating, not a spectacle lens

Crizal lenses are actually a special coating made up of a number of different layers. A patented manufacturing process gradually builds up the coating with anti-scratch and anti-reflective layers. The finished product is a clear and highly durable lens. You can say goodbye to those glares, smudges, and scratches that are the enemy of clear vision.

Anti-reflective technology sets Crizal lenses apart

Crizal lenses utilize the latest in anti-reflective technology setting them apart from ordinary spectacle lenses. They change how you view the world and how the world views you.

So much time is spent in offices with fluorescent lighting or staring at computer screens. The anti-reflective coating minimizes the glare from these artificial light sources. Driving at night becomes much safer. The reflections and halos from headlights and streetlamps that usually blur your vision are gone.

How many times have you looked at someone wearing spectacles and not been able to see their eyes? All you see is light reflecting off the lenses. With Crizal lenses, friends and family will finally see your eyes, not just your spectacles.

Anti-glare coatings protect your eyes

The average adult in the US spend around nine hours a day behind a computer screen. By getting rid of reflections, anti-glare coatings actually protect your eyes by reducing eye strain. Crizal lenses also provide protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light. This reduces the risk of cataracts, macular degeneration, pterygium, and photokeratitis.

There are five kinds of Crizal lenses available. Each provides slightly different options depending on your lifestyle. For example, Crizal Prevencia offers protection from blue light so are more suited to people working on a computer or tablet all day. Crizal Sapphire 360 provide the optimum UV protection and anti-glare of all the lenses, so are great for those spending a lot of time outside.

Crizal lenses are smudge and scratch resistant

Crizal lenses are definitely made to last. The hard layers incorporated into the lenses make them extra durable. You no longer have to worry about accidently scratching your spectacles or sunglasses.

A top coat is applied to both sides of the Crizal lenses. This shiny surface repels water, oil, sweat, and even dirt and dust. Those annoying smudges and fingerprints that restrict your vision become a thing of the past. Your glasses stay cleaner for longer and, as they are anti-static, cleaning is made easier.
