Intro to Independence®

Independence® Coatings are designed to make your lenses perform their best.

Not only does Independence® make your lenses look better, but your lenses will last longer and perform better. The quality of Independence® Coatings is unparalleled - that’s why each one comes with a lifetime warranty. Other coatings don’t offer this type of assurance, but with Independence® you can be sure that you are getting the best.

Not only limited to anti-reflective coating, Independence® Coatings also include coatings that focus on both eye health as well as fashion. Independence® Tech is a specialized coating formulated to protect your eyes against blue light. This is very useful for those of us that have heavy use of computers and smartphones. When it comes to fashion, Independence® Mirrors let you show off your style with an array of colors to choose from. These also come with Independence’s lifetime warranty, so you can be sure that they aren’t going to scratch when you’re showing off your style at the beach, or anywhere else.

Superior Scratch Resistance

Independence® Coatings are designed to make your lenses perform their best.

A thermal dip coating is applied to this lens to give it a superior scratch coating. This leads to not only enhanced scratch resistance, but also eliminates AR crazing and cracking. Independence® provides scratch resistance which will resist scratches even from steel wool.

Daily use and natural wear-and-tear can cause your lenses to not only scratch, but deteriorate the visual quality that you see through the lenses. Independence® Coatings will help keep your lenses and vision, looking clean, crisp and clear for the life of your lenses.

Anti-Reflective Coatings

Independence® Anti-Reflective Coatings take your vision to the next level.

Compatible with any lenses, Independence® gives you clearer vision and superior performance.

Independence® is also one of the only coatings to come with a lifetime warranty, a testament to how well it performs. This is what makes Independence® more versatile than other premium lens coatings. It’s not just simply a lens coating, as it allows you to customize it as part of the fashion experience.


Anti-Reflective Colors

Choose the one that best matches the fashion statement you want to make.

In addition to the coating features, Independence® anti-reflective coating is unique in that it offers you the option to choose your coating color. Independence® comes in green, blue, or gold, making it ideal for when you want to match the color of your patient’s frame.

This is what makes Independence® more versatile than other premium lens coatings. It’s not just simply a lens coating, as it allows you to customize it as part of the fashion experience.

When glasses/lenses are viewed straight-on or at a slight angle, reflections are virtually non-existent. Independence® AR COATINGS allow for a truer and cleaner view through the lenses. Reflections are attenuated for different color wavelengths with the reflex color and greatly minimize reflections

Independence® Tech

As a society, we are becoming more and more focused on computers and technology.

As such, we are exposing our eyes to a lot more blue light now than we ever have in the past. That can cause a lot of confusion for our brain, especially when it gets a lot of blue light right before bed time.

This light tells your brain it’s time to wake up, when that’s the last thing you want to do. As such, we need to protect our eyes from the extra blue light - that’s why Independence® Tech is so important for those of us that use computers and other devices frequently. Independence® Tech deflects blue light, ensuring less of it enters the eye, making it easier for our brain to cope.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Independence® Mirrors

Nothing is more attention-grabbing than mirrored sunglasses.

These are something that everyone notices immediately, and is a great addition to any fashion statement. But you don’t just want to make a statement - you want something that works, and works well.

That’s why Independence® Mirrors - like every Independence® product - comes with a lifetime warranty. Available on polarized lenses, they give you superior performance in harsh sun conditions like being at the beach or skiing.

Mirror Colors

Independence® Mirrors are available only on polarized lenses, ensuring the superior quality and standards of the coating that you are receiving.

There are ten mirror colors to choose from: Red, Orange, Gold, Teal, Green, Blue, Navy, Purple, Silver, and Silver Flash. This makes it easy to accommodate the demanding fashion needs of your patients. You can use these mirrors with confidence, as Independence® Mirrors have the same lifetime warranty as all Independence® Coatings.
