Application of lens coatings provides various benefits for the spectacle wearer.

Anti-reflective coatings help transparency in the lens and reduces glare from various lighting situations, e.g. oncoming head lights and artificial lights.

UV coatings protect eyes from absorbing harmful UV rays. Long term exposure to UV rays can damage DNA, it is cumulative and irreversible. The UV coating blocks the transmission of light in the ultraviolet spectrum.

Transition lenses photo chromatic are light and UV sensitive.
