The anti-glare coating, also called "AR"
or "anti-reflective coating," helps to improve your vision,
reduces some of the strain on your eyes, and also helps your eyewear look
The anti-glare coating is meant to eliminate
almost all of the reflections that can occur on the front and back of your
lenses. Once these reflections are gone, you get more light entering your eyes,
less visual distractions due to light reflecting off of a portion of your
glasses, and the lenses look almost invisible. This helps the eyewear look more
attractive because of how non-existent the lenses look, making sure people
won’t focus on the lenses in front of your eyes.
The anti-glare coating is even better when
used on high-index lenses, although that will be discussed in a later article.
The polycarbonate materials on the lenses help
to provide up to 10 times more resistance to breaking on impact than plastic or
glass lenses do. Some people confuse coating with the kind of plastic materials that is used for prescription lenses. So the materials used is polycarbonate and coatings you could chose from are the ones described in this article.
In addition, they also provide full protection from the sun’s
UV rays. They are very lightweight, which only helps lend themselves to the
attractiveness and comfort of your eyewear.
The scratch resistance coating goes hand in
hand with the polycarbonate coating. Why is this?
Polycarbonate is actually a relatively soft
type of material. Because of its flexibility, it can handle the energy on
impact without splitting apart. But due to how soft it is, it needs the scratch
resistance coating to ensure that it won’t suffer any surface scratches.
After the coating has been applied, the
lenses will feel as hard as glass lenses, but can still handle hard impacts.
