  • Anti-Scratch Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Anti-Scratch Coating

    Enjoy it free with all EBD glasses. No pair of glasses is indestructible, but anti-scratch coating defends against drops and tumbles and will help protect your lenses from daily wear and tear.

  • Anti-Reflective Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Anti-Reflective Coating

    Anti-reflective, or AR, coating eliminates annoying glare on your lenses and reduces the reflections caused by computers, automobile headlights, and more, so that the only reflections you see are the ones in your mirror—and the only thing your admirers see is you.

  • Light Adjusting Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Light Adjusting Coating

    This coating darkens and lightens according to exposure to sunlight, becoming dark outdoors and clear indoors. This option cannot be applied with other sunwear options. We offer premium Transitions™ and basic photochromic lenses.

  • Color Tint Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Color Tint Coating

    You know what you want. We know it, too. If our 300 plus selection of sunglasses isn't enough for you, our color-tint coatings let you create your own, we have some good news. We offer four colors and two intensities for you to choose from. Please note that our color tints cannot be added to polarized or photochromic lenses.

  • Gradient Tint Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Gradient Tint Coating

    Gradient-tint lens coatings start as dark tint at the top of a lens and then progressively lighten toward its bottom. The result is a pair of shades that offer you sun protection and privacy, but offer you varying degrees of light. Gradient tint can only be applied to lenses for frames above 36mm in height.

  • Polarized Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Polarized Coating

    This safety coating reduces the annoying, and sometimes dangerous, reflections that water and roads can create on your lenses, making it especially handy for activities like driving, running, and biking. It comes in standard dark green, dark brown, or dark gray tint.

  • Mirrored Tint Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Mirrored Tint Coating

    Add a little bit of mystique to your look with mirrored coating on your lenses. Mirrored lenses are functional and fashionable sunglasses with that little extra flash. This reflective coating comes in gold, silver, and blue.

  • Water Repellant Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    Water Repellant Coating

    Water repellant coating keeps water drop, dirt, and smudges off your lenses while making them easier to clean. Lenses with this premium coating stay sparkling twice as long.

  • UV Protective Coating at EyeBuyDirect

    UV Protective Coating

    This invisible coating works like sunscreen for your eyes by deflecting harmful UV rays from the sun before they can damage your eyes, and it is included for no extra charge with our polycarbonate (1.59) lenses. Free is always stylish, no?
