Scratch protection is extremely helpful, particularly on plastic lenses which tend to scratch more easily than glass lenses.
Just like the ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun damages your skin it can also damage your eyes if you don't protect them. UVA light rays affect the internal lens of the eye and UVB light rays are absorbed by the cornea, the front part of the eye. And though the sun is the most powerful source of UV radiation, the most significant exposure comes from the reflection of the sun on ground surfaces (snow, sand, concrete, water). By treating your eyeglasses and sunglasses with a UV protective coating you can reduce the exposure to your eye by up to 99%.
Anti-reflective coatings help reduce the reflection of light in your eyeglasses. In an office environment overhead lighting and computer monitors create lots of reflections on the internal surface of your eyeglasses. Even the small amount of light in your car at night can cause significant reflections in your glasses. These types of reflections can make it difficult to see clearly and create eye strain. The anti-reflective coating offers eyeglass wearers less reflection and allows people to see more clearly.
Progressive lenses are also known as no-line bifocals. They allow you to see objects from near to far but without the obvious line on your eyeglasses.
