Applying an anti-reflection coating to your lenses virtually eliminates reflections from the front and back of your lenses and allows more light to reach your eyes. This helps you in two ways. First, you see better, particularly in low-light or glare-prone situations such as driving at night. Second, you look better because people can see your eyes without seeing distracting reflections. Anti-reflection coatings increase light transmission through the lens, significantly reduce light reflections from the front of your lenses, and virtually eliminate the reflections from the back of your lenses. This has numerous advantages:
|Advantages of Anti-Reflective Lenses|
Some of the light reflected by typical lenses is bounces off the front of the lens surface. That means that others see reflections on your glasses, instead of your eyes. With AR, they'll see more of you.
Reduce "Visual Noise" and Eyestrain
Light also bounces off the back surface of your lenses and into your eyes. This creates "visual noise" in the form of ghost images and the fuzzing of objects in your field of view. Even if you are not consciously aware of it, this glare can cause eye fatigue and stress. The effects of these reflections are most pronounced in situations such as spending lots of time under fluorescent lights, or driving at night with bright lights ahead and behind. With AR, these reflections are virtually eliminated. That means better vision when you need it.
Many people feel self conscious wearing glasses. They are uncertain how they'll be perceived. They wonder how much other people notice their glasses, rather than their eyes. And they don't like the reflections and glare in their eyes that remind them that they have to wear glasses. AR makes glasses much less noticeable - whether you're looking through them or at them.
