I was glad to hear a pro say it was the coatings. I have never had my plastic lenses coated and so far never had a problem.

I did have spray from painting pn them and the Dr. office cleaned them with acetone so I knew that was safe to use.

Looks like sometimes the hi - tech stuff is not worth the extra money.

Try a good antiglare coating and you will never go back. As I understand it the coating can be redone any time.

When I wore glasses (before I went Ortho-K), I wore wrap-around sunglasses that fit over your prescription glasses. These not only give you effective sun protection but they protect the anti-glare coating as well. These sunglasses are easier to find in optical stores now now but, worst case, you can find them at the CNIB.

HTH, Jim.

Actually I just need them for close up when fueling and starting....not for flying. For flying I'm using Rapalla's for sunshine and overcast conditions...they are good both for flying and racing boats because of the glare on the water.
As for recoting them...hmmmm lets see.....$30 for getting off old cote then $75 +/- for new coting. I'll just go for new pair but expensive and keep them at home and work. I'll use the old pair for the field. Not taking chances anymore........
