For lenses that do not include an anti-reflective treatment, it is important to protect them with a scratch resistant treatment. Lenses that are treated on the front and backside with a clear, hard coating show increased resistance to scratching. A two-sided scratch protection treatment is the best choice for optimal scratch resistant. Watch the video below and be sure to ask our optician about adding scratch protection to your lenses!
Although no lens material is scratch-proof, it is important to protect your lens with a scratch-resistant treatment. Lenses with the best scratch-resistant protection are treated on the front and back side with a clear, hard coating. Some lenses have built-in scratch resistance, however it’s important to know that not all scratch-resistant treatments are equal. And not all treatments provide the front and back surface of the lens. A two-sided scratch resistant treatment provides the best protection. Ask a staff member for more information on the best treatment for your lenses.
