This article focuses on contact angle in anti-reflective (AR) lenses. Development of oleophobic surface treatments is the reason behind the growth in AR lense market. Water and oil resistance is measured by the contact angle of a surface. Increase in surface contact is important in reducing spoilage and axis errors on oleophobic AR lenses.
