SUPER-HYDROPHOBIC LENS COATING
Hydro+ is a super-hydrophobic lens coating composed of 12 layers that work together to provide a range of benefits.
One of the most impressive features of Hydro+ is its ability to repel liquids, including water and grease. Liquids will bead and roll off the surface of the lens. In tests, Hydro+ has been shown to be up to eight times easier to clean than a standard lens coating.
Lenses coated with Hydro+ resist scratches. This is important for individuals who use their glasses frequently or who work in environments where their glasses may be exposed to potential damage. The coating acts as a barrier, protecting the lens from everyday wear and tear, such as smudges and scratches. Another advantage of Hydro+ is its anti-reflective properties. The coating reduces the amount of light that is reflected off the surface of the lens, which helps to eliminate glare and improve clarity of vision.
