Lens Mirror Coating Colors

Lens Mirror Coating Colors

SKELETON Optics eyewear products come in a wide array of Lens tints and Iridium Mirror Coatings. Mirror coatings come in different densities - Flash and Solid. Solid mirrors usually reflect back more light than flash mirrors. So for solid mirrors the laboratory applies more layers of the coating solution than for flash mirrors.

No eyeglass lens material - not even glass (most scratch resistant material) - is scratch-proof. However, a lens that is treated front and back with a clear, hard coating does become more resistant to scratching, whether it's from dropping your glasses on the floor or occasionally cleaning them with a paper towel. Kids' lenses, especially, benefit from a scratch-resistant hard coat.

Today, most types of plastic lenses, including high-index, polycarbonate and traditional plastic materials have built-in scratch-resistant coatings. Since scratch-resistant coatings are sometimes optional, make sure your optician knows that you want them in your prescription eyeglasses.

Since a scratch-resistant coating can't completely protect your lenses from wear and tear, keep your glasses in a cushioned case, and clean them with a microfiber cloth and the cleaning solution your optician recommends.
