When you purchase new glasses, your eyewear specialist may suggest an anti-reflective coating.
This prescription lens option prevents excessive reflections on your lenses, improving both your vision and your appearance. It is an excellent option for glasses wearers who work indoors or who have to frequently make eye contact. Here are some advantages to consider as you select a coating for your new glasses.
What Does an Anti-Reflective Coating Do?
An anti-reflective coating allows 95.5 percent of available light to pass through your lenses, and there is less glare on either side. This allows you to see more safely in low light environments. Advances in modern technology ensure that the coating stays in place, preventing the scratching and peeling that was a problem with these lens coatings in the past.
If you drive at night, you have to work in an office building with poor lighting or regularly deal with low light conditions, anti-reflective lenses can help. This coating helps to stop visual distractions in many environments, especially if you work under harsh, glaring light or in dim light. It also helps you to work more comfortably on the computer or with other lighted screens because the reflected light interferes less with your vision.
Seeing Better, Looking Better
Anti-reflective lenses can help you better connect with others, especially if you have a job where you have to talk to individuals all day, such is in sales, education, or in the medical profession. The elimination of glare allows you to more easily make eye contact and others can look at your face without your glass lenses becoming a distraction. This also improves your appearance because you look more natural.
