What is an AR coating?

Anti-reflective coating (“AR coating” or “anti-glare coating”) improves vision, reduces eye strain and makes your glasses look more attractive.

These benefits are due to the ability of AR coatings to virtually eliminate reflections from the surface of your lens. With reflections gone, more light passes through your lenses to optimize visual acuity with fewer distractions (especially at night).

AR coatings improve appearance.

Advances in lens technology and materials has allowed for thinner, lighter, flatter and tougher lenses than ever before. These advances have allowed patients to wear frame styles previously unavailable to them and allowed for more daring frame designs.

We now offer lens coatings which come with a no quibble 2 YEAR ANTI SCRATCH GUARANTEE. Not only does this coating come with the standard anti-scratch and anti-reflection which is found in many coatings but it also come with an UV Block and Blue Light Filter. Hoya Blue Control UV.

To find out more about the lens options available to you, please contact us at the practice or make an appointment.

All of our spectacles come with highest quality lenses produced by our lens partner LH Optics at their bespoke lab in Stirling.

Only the highest quality materials and coating are used for our lenses giving you the best possible vision. We do not import cheap lenses in bulk and we do not use discount brands, as we believe this would compromise our standards and compromise your vision.
