Types and Purpose of Coatings Applied

  1. Hydrophobic Coating –Rain and sweat roll off.
  2. Anti-Fog Coatings – Lens fogging reduction or elimination.
  3. Oleophobic Coatings – Anti-smudge from skin oils.
  4. Anti-Reflective Coatings – Enables 99.7% of available light reaches your eyes.
  5. Anti-Glare Coatings – Prevents glare from oncoming light sources in the dark.
  6. Anti-Scratch Coatings – A hard coat to minimize scratching.
  7. UVA/UVB – Harmful light protection coatings.

Most commercially popular sport sunglasses in today’s market do not apply additional lens coatings.

The reason for this is:

  • It is an expensive process requiring very expensive highly technical equipment.
  • Lens preparation has some exceedingly high tolerances.
  • Production processes are much slower with limited capacity runs.
  • The quality of the lens needs to be much higher.
