Optional Lens Coating Details

Lens coatings are optional add-ons that you can select, based on your specific needs. Depending on the lens material you choose, many of these coatings may be included for free with your lenses. Read the descriptions below to learn more about each option and to determine which ones are best for your specific needs.

Transitions® Light-Adapting Lenses

Completely clear indoors, just the right amount of tint outdoors

New Transitions® Signature™ is the latest photochromic technology from industry leader Transitions Optical. These lenses are completely clear indoors but darken instantly when you step outdoors, eliminating the need for a separate pair of prescription sunglasses. Transitions lenses are more reactive to UV light than ever before and get darker on sunnier days.


  • Fully-clear indoors and at night
  • Blocks 100% of UVA & UVB rays
  • Fits any prescription and frame
  • Suitable for any age, including children

Transitions® Signature™ lenses are every day lenses for everyone. However, if you’re looking for photochromic lenses that will darken inside of a car, you’ll need to order Transitions® Drivewear™ lenses.

Anti-Reflective Lens Coating

Reduces eye fatigue from glare

Anti-reflective (AR) coating is a clear coating that minimizes the glare on the front and back of your lenses. AR is a must-have on coating any pair of glasses, since it reduces eye fatigue. Plus, it has the added cosmetic benefit of allowing people to see your eyes better through your glasses lenses.

Xperio UV Polarized Prescription Sun Lenses

Think all sun lenses are created equal? Think again. Xperio UV™ polarized prescription sun lenses provide maximum UV protection by reducing the amount of UV exposure on both the front and back of the lenses. Xperio UV lenses provide an Eye-Sun Protective Factor (E-SPF® ) of 50+, meaning the eyes are 50 times better protected than they are without lenses. Xperio UV lenses are available in a variety of solid and gradient colors, also offer exceptional scratch resistance for better durability and eliminate glare for sharp outdoor color perception.


  • Eliminates 100% of blinding reflective glare
  • Offers the maximum UV protection available with an Eye-Sun Protection Factor (E-SPF)50+
  • Up to 3 times more scratch resistant than competitive polarized lenses
  • Sharpest vision and clarity to see vibrant colors
  • Easy to clean

*ESPF® registration is a global index rating the overall UV protection of a lens. ESPF® registration was developed by Essilor International, and endorsed by third party experts. A lens rating of ESPF® 25 means that an eye protected by the lens will receive 25 times less UV exposure than an unprotected eye.

Xperio polarized lenses are permanently dark, like a normal pair of sunglasses. If you want lenses that change from clear to dark tint, consider adding Transitions® to your eyeglass lenses.

UV Protection

Blocks 100% of harmful UVA/UVB rays

Cumulative damage from prolonged exposure to sunlight causes 3.2 million people to go blind every year. That's why eyecare professionals always recommend protecting your eyes from UV rays any time you go outside. Our clear, protective lens coating blocks 100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays to help protect against:

  • Cancer and premature aging of the skin around your eyes and eyelids
  • Damage to your cornea, lens, and other parts of your eye that can cause vision problems
  • Development of certain types of cataracts

A little protection now will help you see long into the future. Because UV protection is so important, we add the UV coating for no additional charge to all polycarbonate and hi-index lenses.
