Scratch Resistant

There’s no such thing as scratch-proof lenses. (Even glass lenses can be scratched!) Scratches, while not likely to affect your lens performance, are an annoyance that can interfere with clear vision. That’s why you should always request scratch resistant lenses (treatment) for your eyeglass lenses.

Many of today’s lens products have hard scratch-resistant protection built into the lens—a hard surface treatment that is specifically designed to resist scratches. But it’s not an automatic feature! Be sure to discuss scratch resistant glasses options with your eye care professional.

We put our glasses through a lot from day to day—and our children, even more so. Scratch resistant lenses can go a long way toward minimizing the everyday wear and tear we put on our eyewear.

Lens care for scratch-resistant glasses

Don’t forget, no treatment can completely protect eyeglass lenses from scratches. But you can help out! Remember to keep your glasses in a cushioned, sturdy case when not wearing them. Clean them regularly with warm, soapy water and dry them with a clean, soft cloth. With scratches as with life, a little extra care goes a long, long way.

Parting Message from Dr. Eagle

Dear Patients,

I have enjoyed caring for you and your families over the past 30+ years. With a lot of joy, and some sadness, I am writing to let you know that I retired as of March 15th, 2021. As you all know, this practice is staffed with some of the most knowledgeable and caring people in the country. I highly recommend that you select Dr. Nisha Chaudhari for your future medical and visual needs. Dr. Chaudhari has been a pleasure to work with and I am proud to retire knowing she will be taking good care of our patients. Please be assured that my staff and Dr. Chaudhari have been doing everything they can to make the transition smooth and stress free. Your medical records are confidential and will remain on file with West Orange Family Eyecare.

It has been a great pleasure meeting and caring for you all. I sincerely appreciate your friendship and loyalty. I wish you continued good health and all the best in the coming years.

Sincerely,

Dr. Gary A. Eagle
