In 1935 AR coating was invented for ophthalmic lenses by Zeiss Optics Company. The earliest form of AR was discovered in 1886 when an optical glass seemed to tarnish due to environmental chemical reactions. When tested the tarnished glass transmitted more light than new, clean pieces. Today, Summit Optical AR coatings are among the best in the world.
Summit Optical is proud to provide 24 hour service with the most advanced AR technology available.
