Anti Reflective Lenses vs. Reflective Lenses

Bright dazzling light can make it hard for you to see correctly besides being uncomfortable. You may be going through this several times during the day, which makes protecting your eyes a priority--this is where anti-reflective lenses come in.

Anti-glare glasses contain lenses that have an anti-reflective or anti-glare coating. This thin coating on the lens helps it remove reflections on your glasses' front and back surfaces. Anti-reflective (AR) lenses also help reduce light sources, which occurs at night.

The unique 'hydrophobic' surface treatment also helps repel water, prevents fogging, and makes your glasses easy to clean. If your glasses have reflective lenses, Z Clear glasses cleaner can help achieve similar durability, ease of cleaning, and waterproofing.

Below, we look at the benefits you stand to gain by enhancing your lenses with an anti-reflective coating to help get the difference between anti-reflective lenses and reflective lenses:

  1. Enhance your appearance

AR coatings help remove harsh reflections from your lenses so that other people can have a clear view of your eyes. You can be sure your eyes take center stage when posing for a selfie or having a live chat with your friends.

  1. Increase your visual clarity

AR coatings transform your view of the world by allowing more light into your eyes while fading off the glare; this helps you have a clear vision while working or driving.

  1. Protect your eyes from UV rays and blue light

AR coatings protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays, which can cause damage. AR lenses also help reduce eye strain by reducing your exposure to high energy visible light or blue light. Blue light can make your eyes feel tired after spending time in front of a computer or TV.

  1. Extend the life of your lenses

Your glasses can suffer from scratches when you wipe them using sanitary papers or the edge of your shirt. AR coatings help protect your glasses from scratches and smudges, which can increase their lifetime—helping avoid frequent and costly replacements.

Give your glasses an anti-reflective coating and extended durability by cleaning them usingZ Clear glasses cleaner.
