a layering process bonding the layer to the surface creating a very hard and scratch resistanct lens.

eyeglasses or replacement lenses for your own frame. Premium Anti-Reflective Coatings such as Crizal® offer several
options and is the best name brand of AR coatings available and designed to provide superior vision and clarity.

Essilor Crizal lenses are prescribed to most patients across the world with the goal to ensure that they experience the clearest vision possible via the lenses they wear. However, Crizal lenses can offer much more than just clear vision.

Crizal lenses are known for their anti-glare technology. The technology minimizes glare for wearers, which makes wearing the glasses a lot more comfortable. That’s why it is perfect for just about anyone but in particular for people who:

  • Want the clearest possible vision (who doesn’t )
  • Protection from smudging and scratches
  • Reduces glare when driving at night
  • Protects against light sources which are damaging
  • Reduces reflections from digital screens and lights

How are Essilor Crizal® Lenses Produced?
Crizal lenses are produced in nine steps:

  • The lenses are automatically stripped and cleaned using an abrasive material across the surface. Doing this allows for the best possible adhesion of the hard coat.
  • The scratch-resistant hard coat is then applied to the lens. The coating, which is a polymer matrix along with silica particles, makes the lenses scratch-resistant on both sides.
  • The surface of the lens is then cleaned thoroughly again by bombarding it with ions. It also ensures the maximum adhesion of the soon to follow Anti-Reflective coating, which is what gives the lens its anti-glare properties.
  • The next step involves applying Essilor’s scratch-resistant coating, which mainly consists of a thick silica gel layer that’s applied in a vacuum chamber in between the hard coat and the anti-reflective coat.
  • The anti-reflective layers are then added to maximize glare resistance. The lens is then flipped over, and UV protection is then layered on top to protect the wearer against UV rays.
  • The anti-particulate layer is then applied between the anti-reflective layers, which give the lens its anti-static properties and its ability to repel dirt and dust.
  • The HSD or High Surface Density layer consisting of fluorinated molecules are then applied to the front and back of the surface. This specific layer helps give the lens its water and oil repelling properties making it immensely easy to clean.
  • Many sellers of Crizal eyeglass lenses online will talk about a Patented Pad Control System. This is a temporary layer that helps in blocking and edging of the lenses. A lens without this layer is so slippery that blocking and edging isn’t possible.
  • Finally, a single lens from every batch is systematically put through a battery of tests in a laboratory to ensure that the quality is consistent with Crizal® anti-glare lenses’ standards.

Crizal® Prevencia®
Prevencia happens to be a rather odd addition to the lineup because it has all the features of the other lenses but with a bonus. It was initially marketed as being the first no-glare lens to filter harmful blue light. It continues to be one of the best features of these lenses, especially in modern times, when everything we do is somehow associated with computers and other digital products with a screen. So, the result is that a wearer only receives the “not so harmful light” which for many ends up reducing eye fatigue.

How much Do Crizal Prevencia lenses cost? Generally, they will cost an average of $96.00 to $160. What you end up paying for these lenses will vary depending on several factors like prescription, your location, etc.       Lens price list
