These coatings enhance the optics and cosmetics of spectacle lenses and their quality has improved significantly over the last few years. A/R coatings maximize light transmittance, giving the lenses a transparent appearance and which also increases visual contrast and clarity.
In the photo to the right the lens on the woman’s right eye has an anti-reflective coating and the left lens does not. Note the difference!
We highly recommend polarized prescription and non-prescription sunglasses due to the fact that polarization is the most effective way to reduce glare from reflective surfaces. They perform best when driving and are most effective when in and around water. Polarized lenses will not fade or lose their color with time.
