An anti-reflective (also known as anti-glare) coating prevents reflections from appearing on both the inside and outside of your eyeglass or sunglass lenses. No reflections on your lenses means more light is reaching your eyes, which inevitably improves your vision.
Anti-reflective coating glasses lenses are practically invisible, so your eyes will look better and your stylish frames can take center stage.
All single vision EyeBuyDirect lenses come standard with an anti-reflective coating. High-index lenses naturally reflect more light, so this is an important addition if you’re interested in thinner lenses.
Allows more light to reach your eyes, improving visual acuity.
Reduces vision-obstructing glare — extra important for driving.
Makes your eyes more visible behind your lenses, so your facial expressions are easier to see.
On sunglasses, it prevents sunlight from reflecting into your eyes when the sun is behind you.
Here are some popular lens options that come standard with an anti-reflective coating:
