Some prescription eyeglasses are tinted with a wide variety of colors and shades. The purpose of tint is to reduce glare from certain situations: such as bright lights, computers television sets, etc. Another reason for tinting of lenses are to offer comfort to eyes. Also, people order tints on their eyeglasses for fashion.
Glass and most plastic lenses are coated with a UV protection coating. Ultra violet rays can cause severe damage to eyes. It is very important to protect your eyes while out in sun.
Another coating that is added to a pair of prescription eyeglasses is scratch-resistant coating. Sometimes this coating is applied at manufacturer and other times it can be added right there at eye doctors office. It must be said, however, that even while this coating can aid in durability of lens, it does not make lens scratch proof.
