    What's the best, most durable AR coating for glasses?
    I also want it to be hydrophobic.

    TRANSITIONS® VI FINISHED LENSES WITH “SUPER HYDROPHOBIC” AR COATING
    NOW AVAILABLE IN HARD RESIN

    (TORRANCE, CA — June 2009) Younger Optics has added hard resin to
    their new Transitions® VI finished lens line; Poly was introduced
    earlier this year. Both materials offer a “Super Hydrophobic” AR
    coating and are available in single vision gray and brown colors (hard
    resin lenses in gray will be available immediately; followed by brown
    on July 1). The response from Laboratories has been very positive to
    these lenses with a high quality AR coating that can outperform many
    of the more costly coatings now on the market.

    This AR’s hydrophobic properties allow water droplets to easily run
    off the surface of the lens without stains or streaks. These
    hydrophobic properties also help to remove smudges, dust, dirt and
    fingerprints, making the lenses easy to clean and maintain. Tests have
    shown this advanced coating is very durable, to resist scratching and
    peeling throughout the life of the lens.

    The Super Hydrophobic AR on these finished lenses provides high
    transmission, to let more light through the lens and allow the wearer
    to see clearer, sharper images with the benefits of Transitions® VI
    Photochromic Technology. At the same time, the Super Hydrophobic AR
    prevents annoying reflections from coming off the wearer’s lenses, and
    has a pleasing, uniform reflected color.

    Transitions® VI finished lenses with “Super Hydrophobic” AR coating
    are available now in hard resin and polycarbonate from Younger Optics.

    Younger Optics is recognized as the world leader in prescription
    polarized lenses with its NuPolar® brand. With world headquarters in
    Torrance, CA, Younger Optics has won 18 OLA awards during more than 50
    years of bringing innovative products to the optical industry. For
