What is an anti-reflective coating?

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.

Anti-Reflective Coating Glasses Benefits:

Anti-Reflective Coating Glasses Benefits:

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.

Lenses featuring an anti-reflective coating

Here are some popular lens options that come standard with an anti-reflective coating:

  • Standard single vision lenses

    Glasses with single vision correction lenses. They help with seeing either at a distance or near, depending on the wearer’s needs.

  • Blue Light Filtering

    Blue light filtering lenses filter blue-violet light (blue-violet light is between 400-455nm, as stated by ISO TR 20772:2018​ and can accelerate aging of the retina) emitted mainly by the sun outdoors and indoors through windows, plus some artificial light sources like digital screens and fluorescent lights.

  • All Reading

    Glasses with lenses that help the wearer see things up close. Many people need reading lenses as they get older due to a common condition called presbyopia.

  • Transitions®

    Glasses with Transitions® lenses automatically darken in sunny conditions and become clear when it’s darker. This allows them to work as both eyeglasses and sunglasses.
