Hard coat

HARD COAT

A zirconium or silicon layer is used to coat the organic lenses (CR 39/polycarbonate) to make them scratch resistant.

Polarised

POLARISED

These lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare and easing stress on the eyes resulting in better clarity overall. Better contrast results in improved safety for many outdoor activities. Your eyes are virtually 100 per cent protected from UVA and UVB rays. The coating is available in single-vision polarising lenses (in CR 39 only).

COATING(ARC)

ARC is an additional coating over the hard coat that is available for all types of lenses. With two options of ARC and Clean Coat, the coating:

  • Allows more light to pass through the lens
  • Eliminates unwanted reflections
  • Improves the contrast of vision
  • Enhances cosmetic appearance
  • Makes the lens look thinner
  • Reduces ghost-image effect
Tints

TINTS

This is the colouring of lenses to protect our eyes from UV rays. Tints are available for plastic lenses except for polycarbonate. They are useful in making prescription sunglasses.

These clear lenses are photosensitive and offer sun and UV protection. A pair for all visual needs, it is an ideal solution for all climatic conditions. Photochromatic lenses are available in both plastic and glass options for single vision, bifocal and progressives.
