What is anti-reflective coating and how will it benefit you? Anti-Reflective (AR) coating cuts down on the frustrating glare on your lenses. It also helps reduce any glare from hitting your eyes at night or while using a computer. AR coating works by increasing the light transmission through the lenses, providing you with the clearest, sharpest vision at all times.
Another benefit of anti-reflective is its ability to reduce glare from light in photographs. Therefore, you will no longer have to worry about taking your eyeglasses on and off for pictures in order to avoid that dreadful glare across your lenses. Try leaving them on and see how different your eyes look – you will actually be able to see them without having an annoying glare covering the lenses! Once you wear a pair of glasses with AR coating, you will immediately notice the difference in the comfort and vision of your lenses. It will be tough to ever order another pair without it!
Furthermore, anti-reflective coating is also amazing for computer use and night driving by eliminating the additional glare from computer screens and low light conditions. Yet, AR coating does not completely block out blue light emitted from computer screens, tablets, and mobile phones. However, we also offer our Blue495 lens coating. This coating blocks High-Energy Visible (HEV) blue light emitted by digital devices and artificial light (such as florescent and LED), which are known to have some harmful effects to the eyes and often disrupt natural sleep cycles. The blue blocking coating will also help reduce eyestrain, which can be a result of staring at your computer or phone screen for an extensive period of time.
To sum it up, AR coating is something that will enhance your vision and improve the overall quality of your glasses. You will find little moments like driving home from work, shopping online, and taking family pictures a lot more enjoyable. When shopping for your next pair of glasses, be sure to look into all of the benefits of coatings on your lenses. We all know the frame represents your style, but your lenses are the key to seeing clearly and feeling comfortable, and you definitely don’t want to take that for granted.
