Scratches and smudges reduce visual acuity
Scratches and smudges are more than a cosmetic distraction; they actually decrease the visual acuity of the eyeglass wearer. Premium anti-reflective lenses with better scratch protection help ensure maximum visual acuity.
Crizal Forte® lenses and leading competitor anti-reflective lenses were subjected to the same abrasion test. In a standard eye test, the superior scratch resistance of Crizal Forte lenses improved visual acuity up to one line, versus the competitor no-glare lens used for comparison.
Crizal lenses improve contrast sensitivity
A clinical study shows that a Crizal lens improves contrast perception by 20%*, versus an ordinary lens with no anti-reflective coating. This translates to greater visual comfort, especially for the wearer who works on a computer, or under fluorescent lighting.
Crizal is shown to improve eyeglass wearers’ perceived contrast threshold up to five times* in a simulated night driving situation combining dim light and bright glare from oncoming headlights.
