    AR Reflection Colors

    Worked with a gentlemen who had some Varilux Physio 360 lenses with AR that the patient claimed was Crizal but it had a blue reflection. He thought it might have been Crizal Easy. As far as I am familiar, all Crizal (except Prevencia) has a green reflection. I'm not too familiar with RF Endura/RF Endura EZ but I thought this may be what it is. Would anyone be willing to speculate?

    I know Zeiss has a couple AR's with blue reflection but considering these are Varilux lenses that came from an Essilor lab I am reasonably certain that's not it. The ECP I was working with was going to try and call the original lab but I doubt I will hear back with the answer so I was hoping someone could enlighten me.

    May have been Crizal Sapphire. It came after Avance. Allows a bit more light, but has a definite blue reflex color.

    Sounds like Crizal Sapphire. Prevencia is decidedly purple. Endura and Endura EZ are green. And Hoya Recharge is less purple than Prevencia, more purple than Sapphire.

    Awesome, thanks all. I don't know why I was thinking that Sapphire was green.
