Anti-reflective coating reduces the glare that you see, as well as the glare that others can see on your lenses
AR coatings are similar to the coatings found on microscopes and camera lenses. They consist of several layers of metal oxides applied to the front and back lens surfaces. Because of the layering effect, AR coatings sometimes have a hint of green or purple color, depending on the individual manufacturer's formula.
Anti-reflective coating reduces both internal and external reflections on the lenses themselves, creating a nicer cosmetic appearance. Internal reflections appear as rings that make lenses look thick. External reflections mask your eyes from a clear, complete view when someone is looking at you.
Advantages of AR Coating
- Getting an anti-reflective coating applied to your lenses is a smart choice. The plastic lenses generally used in glasses or sunglasses usually transmit only 90% of the available light to the eyes. The remaining 10% of light is often obstructed by reflections on the lenses.
- ARC improve efficiency where light would normally be lost due to reflections. It was originally created to reduce reflections on camera lenses and is now also used to improve the vision of millions of people who wear glasses or sunglasses.
- It makes it easier for a glasses or sunglasses wearer to have direct eye contact with another person without his or her view being obstructed by reflections.
- By reducing glare, it makes vision more crisp and clear than would be possible if the lenses were not coated.
- It improves driving safety by allowing drivers to focus on the road without distractions from headlights and streetlights.
- It reduces eyestrain for people who use computers often by decreasing glare from the computer screen.
- It reduces eye fatigue for people who work in offices by lessening overhead glare that can be caused by unnatural lighting often found in offices.
- It enhances the quality of a lens and also lengthens its lifetime by providing durability and resistance to water, dirt, heat, and scratches.
