Have you ever experienced blinding reflections in your lenses from oncoming traffic while driving at night? Non-glare lenses, also referred to as anti-reflective lenses, are specially calculated to eliminate the glare on your lenses and increase the amount of light entering your eye. This is an important safety benefit for driving at night as anti-reflective lenses reduce annoying reflections and halos around lights.Non-glare lenses also improve the cosmetic appearance of your glasses by reducing the reflections that mask your eyes when someone is looking at you, making your eyes look more natural. Better yet, most premium non-glare lenses are easier to clean and include a two-sided scratch resistant coating.

Watch a short video about Anti-Reflective lens treatments.
An anti-reflective treatment applied on the front and the back of prescription lenses greatly reduces the light reflected by the lens surfaces. As a result, your eyes appear clearer behind the lenses, vision is more defined, and glare from reflected objects—especially headlights at night—is virtually eliminated. Plus, if you have a high-powered “strong” prescription, anti-reflective coating makes your eyes appear more natural.
How anti-reflective lenses works
Carefully calibrated layers of metal oxides are applied to the front and the back of the lenses. Each of these layers is designed to block reflected light. That includes glare, annoying reflections, and the hazy “halos” you often see around lights at night.
Take special care to use only the cleaning agents recommended by your eye care professional, as anti-reflective treatments are delicate by design. They work well for sunglasses too—but as a general rule should only be applied to the back side of the lens to eliminate glare reflected around the sides of the frame.
