Introduction to Crizal Lenses


Crizal No-Glare lenses are the market leader of No-Glare (Anti-Reflective) ophthalmic lenses, with over 300 Million Crizal lenses sold, and are worn and trusted by over 150 million people worldwide.

Crizal is the only No-Glare range on the market offering the most complete protection against the invisible and often irreversible dangers of UV reflection¹, and the most enduring clarity of vision by fighting the 5 enemies of clear vision—glare, scratches, smudges, dust and water.

Crizal lenses helps you:

See Better: Crizal lenses mean safer, more comfortable nighttime driving by reducing glare from headlights, taillights and street lights

Look Better: Crizal lenses stay clean, clear, and glare-free, so they look virtually invisible to those around you. People can see your eyes, instead of just your glasses

Feel Better: Crizal lenses mean fewer headaches and less eye fatigue, which are caused by reflections off of computer screens and overhead lighting

Protect Better: The most complete daily UV protection. Crizal is designed to protect your eyes from damaging Ultraviolet (UV) radiation reflections that come from the sides and the back of the lens, therefore helping ensure your visual health over time.



Why Crizal Anti-Reflective Lenses


Crizal® No-Glare lenses are recommended to protect your eyes and your vision.

See Clearly
Extreme glare reduces your vision from 20/20 up to 20/40 – a big difference! No-Glare lenses improve contrast by 20% and improve visual acuity so you see clearly, even at night.

See Safely
Crizal is the only No-Glare range on the market offering the most complete protection against the invisible and often irreversible dangers of UV reflection.

See Comfortably
Glare from artificial lights such as computers and fluorescent lighting causes eye-fatigue. No-Glare lenses help eliminate symptoms like tired eyes, headaches and blurred vision. Plus, premium No-Glare lenses such as Crizal® reduce scratches and smudges giving you clearer vision all the time.

See Smarter
80% of what kids learn in their first 12 years is through their eyes. Glare in the classroom from whiteboards and computer screens causes eye-strain and can affect learning and productivity.

Features and Benefits!

Optimal Vision Comfort
Crizal lenses not only cut out reflections and eye fatigue, but are also virtually invisible for a much more flattering appearance.
Premium Scratch Resistance
Crizal lenses mean enhanced durability to withstand daily wear for enduring clarity of vision.
Unique Water Repellence
Crizal lenses remain distortion-free as water droplets quickly slide off the surface without leaving a trance.
Easier Lens Cleaning
Crizal lenses are always clear and spotless as fingerprints and dirt are easily removed using just a cleaning cloth.
Virtually Dust-free Lenses
Crizal lenses are anti-static so dust particles are not attracted to the surface of the lenses.

Indeed, Crizal lenses remain the top choice of eye care professionals and their patients around the world today as they deliver best-in-the-market performance to suit your lifestyle needs.

Technology


Crizal coatings are based on advanced technologies developed to counter the enemies of clear vision. These technologies are perfectly integrated and specifically optimized for ophthalmic applications. Even when combined, they ensure a compact, uniform and durable coating, hairline thin.

The following technologies have revolutionized Crizal lenses:

- the Scratch Resistance Booster™ reinforces resistance to scratches
- the HSD Process™ (High Surface Density) improves smudge resistance
- i-Technology™ enables dust repellence
- Slide-Fx™ ensures that water droplets slide off the lens.

1. Glare Reduction Efficiency
Crizal lenses are made up of a series of thin mineral layers that prevent light interference on the surface of the lens, thus eliminating glare.
2. Smudge Resistance Efficiency
The HSD™ Process* optimizes the density of hydrophobic and oleophobic molecules on the surface of the lens. Water and smudges are better repelled and the lens is easier to clean, when required.
3. Scratch Resistance Efficiency
The introduction of an extra thin layer called the SR Booster™ (Scratch Resistance)optimizes interaction among the different treatment layers, and boosts, or strengthens, the whole stack. It considerably increases scratch resistance.
4. Dust Repellence Efficiency
Crizal’s anti-dust efficiency is obtained thanks to i-Technology™, inspired by space technology and fibre optics. It enables the insertion of a transparent conductive layer within the antireflective stack, equipping the lens with antistatic properties that keep it virtually dust free, even after wiping.
5. Water Repellence Efficiency
The integration of a layer of hydrophobic molecules on the surface of a Crizal lens minimizes water adherence. Slide-FX™ technology developed by Essilor shows that calibrated water drops placed on a Crizal lens will roll into tiny balls and simply slide off when the lens is tilted, without a trace.
