Performance and protection

The evolution of anti-reflective (AR) treatments over the past few years has been dramatic.

Beginning as a way to improve the amount of light passing through the lens to offer the wearer a better visual experience, today’s premium AR treatments offer an entire lens protection system. The improvements have been nothing short of revolutionary. And HOYA has led the revolution!
