Rx-Safety.com offers a variety of lens coatings for your sun- or eyeglasses, each of which performs a unique function that can improve the performance of the lens and the clarity of your vision. Those coatings are often available layered, providing the wearer with the precise lens specifications they desire. Read more about our coatings below.

AR (Anti-Reflective) Coating   Scratch Coating   UV (Ultra-Violet) Protection Coating
Anti-reflective coatings eliminate the distracting glare that can be produced by light when it reflects through your lenses. Anyone subjected to direct or indirect reflections – especially those who spend a lot of time around computers and electronic monitors of any type, suffer from eye strain, or who drive at night – will likely enjoy the benefits of glare reduction. Due to the high reflective properties of high index lenses, an anti-reflective coating is recommended, and is practically mandatory for high index lenses made of glass. (Note: AR coating is not good for outside glasses, dusty dirty environments and or constant cleaning.) The lenses must be wet before they are cleaned.   A scratch resistant coating is often applied to surfaces that are not inherently scratch-resistant, like CR-39 plastic, polycarbonate, or Trivex. It adds a barrier of protection that hardens the surface against both large gouges and smaller scratches, which can build up and crisscross to add a hazy appearance to lenses. If your lenses are formed from any material other than glass, a scratch-resistant coating will increase their productive lifespan.   UV light is invisible to the human eye but can, in excess, cause retinal burning and scarring. Most sunglasses are already designed to block a high level of UV radiation; other lenses, depending on their function or lens material, may also block some UV rays. If your lenses do not specifically state their UV screening level and you spend time outdoors, an additional UV coating will offer protection and peace of mind. Anti-UV treatment is not necessary on polycarbonate lenses because it is an inherent property of the material.

Anti-Fog Coating   Silver Mirror Coating   Blue Mirror Coating
An anti-fog coating works by chemically affecting the adhesion of water molecules, preventing them grouping into larger clusters that can impair vision. If your glasses are frequently exposed to temperature changes or humid conditions, you’ll likely want an anti-fog coating to help combat condensation. The same goes for anyone who engages in strenuous activities such as physical labor, participation in sports, or exercise. Any activity that causes your body temperature to fluctuate will likely lead to lens fogging.   Silver mirror lenses are one of the most popular colors and lend the wearer a cool, sleek, urban look. This coating on lens exteriors gives them a reflective mirror finish and is available in different colors.
