All The Benefits of Essilor Crizal Forte UV Lenses

Are you an eyeglasses wearer?

Are you tired of being blinded in the rain, constantly cleaning off smudges and losing sight due to scratched lenses?

If so, it may be time to enhance your visual experience with some high-quality lenses. Think Arise Collective HD, Essilor Crizal Forte UV lens technology, or our premium lens selection.


Lens Technologies

There has been a world of technological breakthroughs in the lenses market, and as a result there is a range of different options when it comes to choosing your lenses.

  • Single vision lenses, for vision improvement over either short or long distances, but not both.

  • Multifocal lenses, for vision improvement over multiple distances.

  • Multicoated lenses, for protection against dust, water and scratches.

  • Transition lenses, for adapting to high- and low-light situations.

  • High-index lenses, for the thinnest, best-looking way of improving your eyesight.


What Are Anti-Reflective Lenses? 

Anti-reflective/anti-glare/AR coating improves vision, eye strain and makes your eyeglasses look better. These benefits are due to the ability of AR coating to eliminate nearly all reflections from both sides of your lenses. With reflections gone, more light passes through your lenses to optimize visual acuity. This increased amount of light can be really beneficial at night, when your eyes need all the help they can get.


What Lens Coatings Do My Glasses Need?

At SmartBuyGlasses, we can fit your glasses with a number of different coatings to suit your eyewear needs. These include:

  • UV400, with optimized protection for UVA and UVB.

  • Anti-reflective, to reduce glare and increase the amount of light entering your lenses.

  • Scratch-resistant, with added protection against wear and tear.

  • Impact-X, for optimal eye protection in tough conditions.

  • Aspheric, which are thinner, flatter and lighter than conventional lenses.

  • Superhydrophobic, with water-repellant technology.


What is Crizal Forte UV?

Crizal Forte UV is an exclusive anti-reflecting technology from Essilor. It’s specifically designed to protect your eyes from UV light. Essilor Crizal lens technology is applied to both sides of your glasses lenses so as to block both the direct UV light that passes through the front of your glasses, AND the UV rays reflected off the rear surface of your lenses. SmartBuyGlasses is not affiliated and does not currently sell Essilor lenses online but does recognise their excellent quality.



Do Essilor Crizal lenses protect my eyes from UV light?

Essilor broad spectrum technology lenses provide your eyes with superior protection against harmful UV radiation and have a 25 E-SPF (eye-sun protection factor) rating.

In fact, they claim that their lenses are the best in terms of UV light protection for long-term eye health


Crizal Forte UV features

In addition, Essilor Crizal Forte UV lenses offer some of the most advanced anti-reflective lens technology available today.

Additionally, these high-tech lenses protect you against the big five obstacles to clear vision:

  1. Reflections & glares.

  2. Water droplets.

  3. Dust.

  4. Scratches.

  5. Smudges.

By upgrading your ordinary lenses, you can enjoy crystal clear vision with some of the best lens technology the eyewear world has to offer.


Arise HD Prescription Lenses

While we don’t sell Crizal Forte lenses at SmartBuyGlasses, we do sell anti-reflective lenses with the Arise HD clarity range. 

Arise HD Clarity prescription lenses are made for the everyday wearer, but also offer advanced protection making them suitable for any adventure. These lenses are suitable for all vision impairments and can be customized for your every need. Whether you need reading glasses, driving glasses or prescription glasses for astigmatism, myopia or presbyopia - Arise HD Clarity lenses are fitted to your prescription and your needs.


Protective Coatings from Arise Collective

The Arise Clarity Lens Collection comes packed with protective elements to provide you with an unbeatable pair of prescription glasses. From scratch resistant and anti-reflective coatings to UV 400 and superhydrophobic protection - these lenses are purpose-built to protect your eyes, no matter the conditions.

These lenses are also aspheric, making them thinner and lighter than many other prescription lenses. These high performing, durable lenses feature an innovative lens technology that provides optimal clarity and comfort from the urban jungle to the actual jungle.
