Anti-Reflective Coating: See Better and Look Better

Anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating or anti-glare coating) improves both your vision through your lenses and the appearance of your glasses. Both benefits are due to the ability of an AR coating to eliminate reflections of light from the front and back surface of your lenses. With fewer reflections, more light passes through the lens to the eye for good vision and the lenses look more transparent and attractive.
