Anti- Reflection and it’s Perks: March 31, 2022 By: Emily Herman

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive at our office is, “What is anti-reflection and does anti-reflection have any real benefits?” The answer is yes! Anti-reflection offers many benefits for your eyes and glasses. Ultimately, anti-reflection or AR is a type of optical coating that is placed on the surface of eyeglass lenses to reduce reflection on the front and back of the lenses.

A good quality anti-reflective coating such as Crizal Easy or the even more durable Alize can reduce almost all light reflections on a pair of eyeglasses. With almost all the reflections gone, it allows for more light to pass through the lenses to optimize visual perception with fewer distractions, offering better overall improved vision. Anti-reflection also comes in handy at night to cut down on glare from bright car headlights and can potentially sharpen your vision while driving.

When compared to regular lenses with no anti-reflection, AR lenses provide greater comfort for the eyes during prolonged computer or phone use. AR coating can also be very beneficial when used on high-index lenses because high index generally reflects more light than regular plastic lenses. Our premium AR coating, Sapphire 360, includes a hydrophobic surface treatment that repels water, preventing the formation of water spots and fingerprints on the lenses. Premium AR also seals the anti-reflective layers in order to make the lenses easier to clean as well.

Lastly, anti-reflection is known for its cosmetic perks. You will look better wearing glasses with anti-reflective coating because people won’t see nearly as much light reflection as they would with standard lenses. AR coating also increases the visibility of your eyes and facial expressions.
