Scratch Protection

Scratch Protection

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 resistant treatment is the best choice for optimal scratch resistant protection. 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’s important to protect your new lenses with a scratch resistant treatment.

Lenses with the best scratch protection are treated on the front and backside with a clear, hard coating to be scratch resistant. 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 protect both the front and back surface of the lens. A two-sided scratch resistant treatment provides the best protection.

Ask an optician for more information on the best treatment for your lenses.
