CR Surfacing offers a range of premium optical lens coatings to protect your eyes as well as your lenses. Our double-sided hard coat, called DipCoat is a high-performing scratch-resistant coating that makes the lenses more durable. While this coating offers some protection against UV, its strength lies in scratch resistant abilities. Therefore, DipCoat is often a choice for children’s lenses.

Our highest quality Anti-Reflective coatings are Satin UV and Satin Blue, which offer maximum SPF and UV protection and also improve your vision. These benefits are due to the ability of AR coating to eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of your spectacle lenses. With reflections gone, more light passes through the lenses to optimise visual acuity with fewer distractions (especially at night), and the lenses look nearly invisible — which enhances your appearance by drawing more attention to your eyes and helping you make better eye contact with others.

While Satin UV is an everyday solution, Satin Blue coating is recommended for people spending a lot of time on digital devices, as it blocks out harmful blue light.
