Which coating do I choose?

Scratch-resistant coating
A scratch resistant coating helps to toughen the surface of the lens making it less vulnerable to surface scratches from daily use. They do not make the lens scratch proof- a common misconception. It is always adviseable to upgrade your lens to include this particularly if you will be removing your glasses continually throughout the day.

Anti-reflective coating
An anti-reflective coating helps to reduce stray light and unwanted reflections on optical lenses.  With uncoated lenses much of the light reflects off the lenses so reducing the amount reaching your eye. This can be particularly problematic when driving at night.  Anti-reflective coatings increase light transmission to over 99% through the lenses. The anti-reflective coating also improves the cosmetic appearence of your lenses as people around you actually see your eyes and not the unsightly reflection of the overhead light! The performance of anti-reflective lenses continues to improve with the arrival of the newest generation of premium anti-reflective coatings. These have hydrophobic properties which repel moisture and make them more resistant to fogging. The newest coatings have been engineered to remove unwanted blue light coming from electronic devices.
