Scratch Resistant Coating

At Cristall Opticians we offer lenses that are treated front and back with a clear, scratch-resistant coating. This coating makes the lense have a much harder surface that is more resistant to scratching. Most scratches develop from dropping your glasses or cleaning them with a paper towel.
Kids' lenses, especially, benefit from a scratch-resistant hard coat for greater durability
Since scratch-resistant coatings are sometimes optional, make sure you ask about our ask to receive it on your glasses. To keep your glasses looking brand new, proper storage is necessity. Make sure you store them in a case when not in use, and remember to clean your lenses with a microfiber cloth.
Anti Reflective Coating
Anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating or ) is a microscopically thin multilayer coating that eliminates reflections from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses.
AR coating makes your lenses nearly invisible so people can focus on your eyes, not distracting reflections from your eyeglasses.
Anti-reflective coating also eliminates glare caused by light reflecting from your lenses. With reflections eliminated, lenses with AR coating provide better vision for night driving and more comfortable vision for reading and computer use.
AR coating is highly recommended for all eyeglass lenses, but particularly for polycarbonate and high-index lenses, which reflect more light than regular glass or plastic lenses if anti-reflective coating is not applied.
At Cristall Opticians we value eye health just as much as looking good in your new glasses. We strongly recommend the AR coating which is of the highest quality to experience the best degree in eye comfort and health as you adjust to your new glasses.
