This coating is available on all our dark lenses 1.5, 1.53 NXT, 1.61, 1.67, Polar, on single vision, Sport, progressive, …
The coatings are applied on the outer side of the lens. We recommend that they are used in combination with inner Opal Ultra/UV anti-reflection coating. Both coatings, Mirror and Opal Ultra/UV, also come with hard coating for better scratch resistance, and self-cleaning coating for easier cleaning, less fogging, and dust and dirt resistance.
We don’t recommend the mirror coating for lenses darkened less than 75%, or on photo sensitive lenses (that are very light when not activated).
The reason is the fact, that the mirror is reflecting the light in both directions. The light from behind would be reflected into the eye and the user would see the reflection of his eye in the lens.
By dark lenses is almost all light absorbed in the lens and there is no disturbing reflection.
