If your practice has an optical lab, you can use a new coating from Coburn to add scratch resistance and tinting to ophthalmic lenses. Called ProCoat, the product adheres easily, get high marks on clarity and stability, and is usable across a broad range of lens materials, says the manufacturer. A company press release says labs and doctors no longer have to sacrifice abrasion resistance for tintability and vice-versa.

Coburn says ProCoat is fast-curing and achieves higher yields at a lower cost so labs can be sure they are making a solid investment toward their lens coating operations. It is also free of volatile solvents, making it safer to ship and handle.
