Scratch Resistant

There’s no such thing as scratch-proof lenses. (Even glass lenses can be scratched!) Scratches, while not likely to affect your lens performance, are an annoyance that can interfere with clear vision. That’s why you should always request scratch resistant lenses (treatment) for your eyeglass lenses.

Many of today’s lens products have hard scratch-resistant protection built into the lens—a hard surface treatment that is specifically designed to resist scratches. But it’s not an automatic feature! Be sure to discuss scratch resistant glasses options with your eye care professional.

We put our glasses through a lot from day to day—and our children, even more so. Scratch resistant lenses can go a long way toward minimizing the everyday wear and tear we put on our eyewear.

Lens care for scratch-resistant glasses

Don’t forget, no treatment can completely protect eyeglass lenses from scratches. But you can help out! Remember to keep your glasses in a cushioned, sturdy case when not wearing them. Clean them regularly with warm, soapy water and dry them with a clean, soft cloth. With scratches as with life, a little extra care goes a long, long way.

Carson City Patients: After many years of taking care of your eyes and vision, we have made the difficult decision to close our Carson City location doors. You will still be able to pick up existing eyewear orders through July 15, after which they will be transferred to Family Eyecare Associates (18601 Wedge Pkwy, Ste 2C, Reno, NV 89511), or you can request shipping to your home. It’s been a pleasure serving this great community, and the team at Family Eyecare Associates looks forward to seeing you.
