The article focuses on crazing in anti-reflective (AR) lenses. It says that having the correct lighting, inspection background and trained eyes is a key to detection and identification of crazing. According to the author, crazing can occur in an AR lens when there is enough stress to wane the bond between the hard coat layer and the AR layer. He adds that thickness of hardcoating layer and proper cure are two factors that can contribute to crazing.
