    Do Crizal lenses help with spray and water droplets on your glasses?

    I can't see any difference, other than the price.

    I got new glasses the last week in July and they gave me Crizal lenses. I didn't know I was getting them until I saw the microfiber cloth and Crizal certificate in the case. I told the optometrist to give me his best anti-glare, anti-scratch, anti-spot coating and that's what he picked. It's hard to be objective. I was testing depths today with a kayak paddle and got a few drops on the glasses that stayed there. They didn't roll off the glasses magically. Last week when I first got them I walked through a drizzle to the car and I thought it was definitely better. They do stay dust free better than my old glasses. Hard to say for sure though.

    I have the crizal coating on mine. Better than without. Will get it again unless something better comes out.
