Essilor® has always aimed to develop innovations that meet the expectations of eyeglass wearers.
For this new Crizal® innovation, Essilor researchers took a holistic approach to develop comprehensive protection against visible and invisible factors that harm vision. They found the best combination of Crizal®’s finest technologies to develop the best anti-reflective coating overall*.
The resulting Crizal® Sapphire™ ᴴᴿ coating combines all of Crizal®’s benefits (i.e. 360° reduction of reflections, ease of cleaning, dust and water repellency, and UV protection) with a strong improvement on scratch resistance and durability.
This new generation of Crizal® takes into account light pollution, unintentional behaviors and the unpredictable environment that eyeglass wearers face on a daily basis.
To assess the resistance of Crizal® Sapphire™ ᴴᴿ coating in the hectic lives of wearers, Essilor® R&D has developed a thorough protocol of technical and real-life tests: the Crizal® Lifeproof multi-test.
