Any optical store will tell you anti-glare (or anti-reflective) coating is an extremely important coating to get on your glasses, but what exactly does it do?
As its name suggests, anti-glare coatings reduce the glare on your lenses. This is extremely important to have if you are using your glasses for night-time driving, spending long periods of time looking at screens, working under fluorescent lighting, or even spending time near the water.
Anti-glare does much more than cut out glare; if you have an astigmatism, minimizing glare will let more natural light into the eye, letting you see 10-12% clearer on average. Coating your lenses with anti-glare also comes with an anti-scratch coating and a UV400, maximizing both lens and eye protection.
