Coatings and Tints
Reflection coatings.. a
coating on the lens surface that greatly reduces the annoying
reflections from the surface of the lens. Ideal for night driving as it
cuts down on the reflections from oncoming headlights. Also reduces
annoying back reflections, if you
are sitting with a window
behind you. Cosmetically improves the appearance of the lenses by reducing reflections a person eyes can
be seen more clearly almost making the appearance of the lenses
disappear when worn on the face. The lenses generally will give off a
deep Blue/green reflection. Can be found on
binocular lenses, camera lenses
on all optical instruments. Highly recommended.
Coat…. A hard coat which is
applied to the surface of the lenses to protect the lenses from day to
day wear reducing the likelihood of scratching the lens surface.
Lenses…Lenses that change
colour in different light conditions can come in many different
disguises,such as Transitions... Reactions…, Colormatics. Again
different manufactures have different names. Generally the come in grey
and brown but other colours are available. They help protect from glare
as they automatically adapt to outside conditions, meaning you can see
more clearly. Help protect from eye fatigue as they constantly even out
light variations and block harmful UV light rays helping to preserve eye
health. As you walk indoors from outside they quickly loose their tint
colour therefore no need to keep taking them on and off like traditional
lenses… Polarized sunglasses take the glare off the water surface allowing you
to see below the water line. SEE THE FISH BEFORE THEY ARE HOOKED.
Polarized lenses also protect and rest your eyes from the extra ultraviolet radiation that’s reflected off the water
surface, making your eyes feel less tried at the end of the day.Ideal
for all watersports such as windsurfing, Sailing, Fishing. Polarized
lenses can also be combined with photochromatic lenses.
tints…Tints can be applied
to plastic lenses in virtually any colour and density, the most common
colours are grey and brown available from light tints to dark tints.
