  • Do you ever see halos around lights at night?
  • Are you spending most of your time trying to keep your glasses clean?
  • Does text on your computer screen begin to blur while working?
  • Do people notice the reflections on your lenses before they notice your eyes?

If the answer if yes, then Crizal™ is a product for you!

Scratch-Resistant Lenses

Scratch Resistant Coating on both sides of the lens

  • Consistent coating on both sides of the lens eliminates all risks of cracking.
  • Consistent performance regardless of the design or material that TD2 protects.
  • TD2 hard coat protects all Crizal lenses.
  • The first layer, the adhesion booster, eliminates any microscopic imperfections on the lens surface and allows coating of all materials.
  • The second layer, the hard coat varnish, contains glass like silicate particles in a plastic matrix providing the unique combination of hardness and flexibility.
  • Although there is no such thing as scratch-proof lenses. (Even glass lenses can be scratched!) Scratches, while not likely to affect your lens performance, are an annoyance that can interfere with clear vision. That’s why you should always request scratch resistant lenses (treatment) for your eyeglass lenses.

UV Protection

Did you know the same, serious approach to protecting your skin also applies to your eyes?

UV protection is critical to eye health

Being in Bend, OR, and at a higher elevation, UV rays are even more damaging to us. Eye exposure to ultraviolet rays can cause damage your eyes. Over time, UV can contribute to serious age-related eye conditions or diseases, such as cataracts and macular degeneration. That’s why wearing lenses with maximum UV protection is so very important. Because UV rays are always present outdoors—on sunny days, cloudy days and every day in between.

Unlike sunscreen that you apply and reapply, eyeglass lenses and sunglasses can have ultraviolet protection built into the lens, or applied as a lens treatment. Remember, although UV is invisible to the human eye, it is always present. Your lenses, therefore, should always provide 100% UV protection against both UVA and UVB rays. 
 
The most important thing you need to know about UV glasses is this: Be certain your eyewear provides near or exactly 100% UV protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Anything less is less than ideal for the short and long-term protection of your healthy sight.
