- Tinted lenses can’t protect you from glare off reflective surfaces, or even sunlight glinting through a windshield. Only polarized lenses eliminate excessive reflected light before it can reach your eye.
- When your lenses reflect light, it comes between you and the people around you. Anti-reflective lenses reduce glare and halos around lights, and give others a clear view of your eyes in any light. Today's rimless frames demand anti-reflective coatings.
- Scratch resistant treatments are self explanatory. Just think of all the ways we abuse our glasses, from throwing them in the glove box to routing cleaning with harsh paper towels, then think about investing in a scratch resistant coating.
- Every time you go outside your eyes must instantly adjust to the brighter light. Photochromic lenses automatically dim when you step outside, and constantly adjust to the natural light of the day. These adaptive lenses are available in a variety of colors and shades.
