Coating benefits

Glare protection


By minimising the level of reflections Crizal Drive helps to maintain the wearer’s visual acuity throughout the day and night making the obligation of driving a comfortable passion.

Optimal clarity


A coating that protects your patient’s lenses from the enemies of clear vision thanks to scratch and smudge resistance and dust and water repellency.

Back surface UV protection


Crizal Drive, as all Crizal UV lenses, virtually eliminates back surface reflections protecting wearers against dangerous UV from the back surface of the lens.


Better clarity of vision throughout the day... 


... and night


Why do we experience discomfort when driving at night?

Our vision is not adapted to this environment. Rod cells are the only photoreceptors in the
retina to react to low lighting. This is what we call mesopic or night vision.
Eye sensitivity is different in the day time than at night.

Reflections and glare


At night, we are exposed to multiple and intense sources of light that create reflections and glare. These reflections and glare disturb rod cells, creating discomfort and lower visual acuity.

A decreased sensation of glare (2)

Crizal Drive offers up to 90% less reflection at night, at 507nm where eye sensitivity is the highest, compared to a lens with a hard coat. 

Thanks to this adaptation to lightwaves your patients will experience a decreased sensation of glare enhancing their visual comfort for safer driving. (2)
