- Crizal comes with a 2 year unconditional scratch warranty. Crizal is the hardest coating on the market to scratch, but if you do get a scratch on your lens you are covered!
- Crizal is the only lens on the market using patented technology to keep UV damage from bouncing off of the back of the lens and going into your pupil. This is especially important when wearing Transitions lenses. Transitions lenses adapt to the current lighting allowing your eyes to relax. It is very important to have a Crizal no-glare coating on your lens if you are outside in direct sunlight or working under fluorescent, halogen, or LED to reduce the amount of UV light being transmitted into your eye.
- Having a no glare coating helps to let in 15% more light than as if you did not have the coating. This is crutial to low light activity. The older we get the more our pupil shrinks causing less light to enter the eye. It is essential for our senior patients to be in a Crizal coating to help combat this fact.
- Crizal Prevencia blocks 20% of the damaging blue light that causes age-related macular degeneration. AMD causes the loss of central vision allowing the patient to only view things from their peripheral vision. People are being exposed to this damaging blue light at younger ages than in the past with the development of smart phones, tablets, and the fact that many people work on a computer screen for a large portion of their day. Other coatings block only 10% of the damaging blue light or they block out all of the blue light including the blue-turquoise light that helps regulate the sleep/wake cycle, aids in memory and cognitive performance. Crizal Prevencia lets through this important blue-turquoise spectrum while blocking 20% of the harmful blue-violet spectrum.
