Keep reading to learn more about anti-reflective coatings for eyeglasses.

What Is Anti-Reflective Coating?

Anti-reflective, or AR coating, is a coating applied to lenses to improve their performance. This anti-glare coating provides a few different benefits for those who choose it. When AR is added to the lenses, it helps the lenses effectively block glare. This is especially useful at night when reflections are stronger.

AR coating can also help to reduce eye strain. For those who are using high-index lenses, the occurrence of eye strain due to reflections is increased. High-index lenses reflect more light than other types of lenses. It is important for your long-term eye health that you do not put your eyes under unnecessary strain.

Who Needs AR Coating?

AR coating can be added to any prescription lens. This type of coating can help anyone see better, but it is especially beneficial for those who struggle with night vision or reflections while driving. When you first visit our office, our optometrist will assess your condition to determine the ways in which an anti-reflective coating will benefit you. We will answer any questions you have regarding the product and help determine whether or not it is a good fit for you.
