Ordinary plastic lenses only allow approx. 90% of light to pass through to the eye. The remainder being lost due to reflections on the lenses.. Anti-reflection coatings were developed to reduce reflections for camera lenses and have now become available for prescription glasses lenses.

A lens which has been treated with an Anti-reflective coating transmits 99.9% of the light which can provide:

• Improved vision at night

• Reduced glare from computers

• Reduced strain on the eye

• Your eyes are more visible

• And fantastic looking glasses!

An Anti-reflective coating can increase the quality and the value of your prescription glasses. Anti-reflective coatings can also help to reduce disturbing or annoying reflections. It will also make your lenses appear much more attractive due to the lack of reflection. You will experience much clearer, sharper and more natural vision with a brilliance that is quite simply not possible with uncoated lenses.

Whilst Driving: An Anti-reflective coat can provide drivers with an increase in safety with faster recognition of potential hazards on the road, particularly at night-time. The reflection of a street lamp or headlights on your lenses is practically eliminated.
