Lens technologies

There has been a world of technological breakthroughs in the lenses market, and as a result there is a range of different options when it comes to choosing your lenses.

  • Single vision lenses, for vision improvement over either short or long distances, but not both.
  • Multifocal lenses, for vision improvement over multiple distances.
  • Multicoated lenses, for protection against dust, water and scratches.
  • Transition lenses, for adapting to high- and low-light situations.

High-index lenses, for the thinnest, best-looking way of improving your eyesight.


Essilor Crizal Forte UV lenses offer the highest UV protection possible for clear lenses.

What are anti-reflective lenses?

Anti-reflective/anti-glare/AR coating improves vision, eye strain and makes your eyeglasses look better. These benefits are due to the ability of AR coating to eliminate nearly all reflections from both sides of your lenses.

With reflections gone, more light passes through your lenses to optimize visual acuity. This increased amount of light can be really beneficial at night, when your eyes need all the help they can get.

What lens coatings do my glasses need?

At SmartBuyGlasses, we can fit your glasses with a number of different coatings to suit your eyewear needs. These include:

  • UV400, with optimized protection for UVA and UVB.
  • Anti-reflective, to reduce glare and increase the amount of light entering your lenses.
  • Scratch-resistant, with added protection against wear and tear.
  • Impact-X, for optimal eye protection in tough conditions.
  • Aspheric, which are thinner, flatter and lighter than conventional lenses.
  • Superhydrophobic, with water-repellant technology.

What is Crizal Forte UV?

Crizal Forte UV is an exclusive anti-reflecting technology from Essilor. It’s specifically designed to protect your eyes from UV light.

Essilor Crizal lens technology is applied to both sides of your glasses lenses so as to block both the direct UV light that passes through the front of your glasses, AND the UV rays reflected off the rear surface of your lenses.

SmartBuyGlasses is not affiliated and does not currently sell Essilor lenses online but does recognise their excellent quality.

Do essilor Crizal lenses protect my eyes from UV light?

Essilor broad spectrum technology lenses provide your eyes with superior protection against harmful UV radiation and have a 25 E-SPF (eye-sun protection factor) rating.
