An Anti-Reflective (“AR”) coating cuts down on the frustrating glare on your lenses. While most are fine without it, some are particularly sensitive. It also helps reduce any glare from hitting your eyes at night or while using a computer.
Traditional lenses reflect about 8% of visible light, which means that only 92% of light can be seen by the person wearing the glasses. This might not seem like much of an issue in the daytime, but having less visible light can become dangerous at night–especially if you’re driving. With AR coating, you can benefit from sharper vision regardless of the light condition or your glasses prescription. The technology eliminates glare caused by bright lights and allows nearly 100% of visible light to pass through your lenses.
If you spend a lot of time in front of a screen, you might frequently experience dry eyes or eye strain. Traditional lenses reflect the lights from your devices and can cause irritating glare that may worsen your eye strain. Although AR coating doesn’t filter out all of the harmful blue light that’s emitted from electronic devices, it can make your browsing or online shopping much more comfortable. However, if you use an electronic device for hours every day, consider our Blue495® coating that features blue-light blocking technology.
Traditional lenses can completely obscure your eyes in photographs, which can ruin an otherwise perfect group photo with your friends. Others may struggle to see your eyes in your regular day-to-day life due to reflections in your glasses, making your efforts to perfect your eyeliner seem pointless. You could find the most attractive and flattering pair of glasses frames, but if people can’t see your eyes, you won’t be able to look your best. Next time you find the perfect frames, purchase lenses with AR coating; it makes your lenses nearly invisible so your eyes will never be hidden by glare ever again.
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.
