Scratch Resistant Coatings
If you wear your glasses daily, you should consider getting a scratch resistant coating. Especially if you have a lens made of hard resin or high index plastic. Resins and plastics are more susceptible to scratches than glass. Scratches damage the cosmetic look of the lenses as well as their performance. With a scratch resistant coating, you don't have to worry so much about scratches on your lenses. Another advantage of scratch resistant coatings is that most coatings come with a one-year warranty. They are a great investment to prevent minor scratches. However, it is important to remember that scratch resistant does not mean scratch-proof. All lenses are susceptible to scratches. Take care of your investment and ask about a scratch resistant coating on your new pair of spectacles.
