1. Multicoated lenses
Multicoated lenses are probably the most familiar type of lens for many people, and they have become the go-to option for getting prescription glasses. The highlight of this type of lens is the clear, sharp image without glare, as it has a multi-layer coating that reduces reflection on the surface of the lens. It also prevents scratches and protects from UV rays up to 400 nanometers. This type of lens is suitable for people who wear prescription glasses all the time in everyday life because it is easy to clean and scratch-resistant.
2. Blue light-cutting lenses
Blue light-cutting lenses are lenses with a blue light-filtering coating or insert. The highlight is that it can filter out blue light, which is emitted from various electronic screens and is harmful to the eyes when exposed for a long time. This type of lens is therefore suitable for people who need glare-free glasses and use their eyes on computers, laptops, or smartphones all day long because it can help reduce eye fatigue.
3. Auto lenses
Auto lenses, or automatic color-changing lenses, are lenses with a special coating that changes color according to the light conditions. The highlight is that when in the shade, the lens will have a normal clear color, but when exposed to bright sunlight, the lens will turn dark like sunglasses. This type of lens is therefore suitable for people with high light sensitivity, photophobia, or people who wear prescription glasses who need to work both indoors and outdoors without having to switch glasses back and forth. They can also use auto lenses as sunglasses.
Before you go to get prescription glasses, be sure to do your homework on the types of lenses so you can choose the right type of lens that suits your lifestyle. If you wear prescription glasses in everyday life, you might use multicoated lenses. If you work with screens a lot, choose blue light-cutting glasses. If you need to go outdoors and indoors often, choose auto lenses so you can use them as sunglasses. If you are not sure, our BVAX Master experts are always happy to help.
