  • They typically opt for the ultrasonic bathing process to make the surface of the lens crystal clear. The process is done repeatedly. This results in a good quality of lenses leaving them free of even a hairline smudge that is further going to be coated
  • Now, after the process of bathing and washing, the coating process requires no trace of moisture on it. Therefore, through air drying and heating of the lenses, they are made moist-free.
  • Further processes are held in the coating chamber. This chamber is sealed so that the air does not pass through to make sure that the vacuum is created. The lenses for making anti-reflecting glasses are shifted there in racks.
  • The racks with super clean and dry lenses rotate simultaneously, and a beam of electrons containing metal oxides is emitted onto every compartment.
  • After the emission of electrons on the lenses, they get vaporized in the coating chamber itself and stick to the surfaces of the lenses, hence, creating a thin and fine visual layer on the lenses.
