Scratch Protection

When eyeglass lenses are scratched, they become less clear and are more likely to cause eye fatigue. Scratches also make it harder for others to see your eyes from the front, and may even begin to bother the wearer if scratches are noticeable. Although no material is completely scratch-proof, there are some treatments that can help your lenses resist scratching and have a longer life. We highly recommend scratch protection on your glasses to protect your investment in your vision!

Some anti-reflective treatments include scratch protection. For lenses that do not include an anti-reflective treatment, it is important to protect them with a scratch resistant treatment. Lenses should be 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 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.
