Antireflective coated lenses

Do you average 3hours or more daily on a personal computer?
Do you experience eyestrain after working on your smart phone or tablet?
Do you experience difficulty driving at night due to light from the headlights of oncoming vehicles?
Would you like to have clearer vision through your glasses?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, antireflective coated lenses is what you need.
Antireflective coating, also called anti-reflection coating, anti-glare coating, or simply AR coating, over your lenses improves both your vision through your lenses and the appearance of your eyeglasses due to the ability of AR coating to eliminate reflections of light from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses.
By eliminating reflections, AR coating also makes your eyeglass lenses look nearly invisible, so people can see your eyes and facial expressions more clearly, making you look your best in all lighting conditions, even in pictures!
With fewer reflections, more light passes through the lens to the eye leading to increased contrast and therefore increased visual acuity.This can be particularly helpful in low-light conditions, such as when driving at night.
Antireflective treatment blocks high-energy blue light emitted by electronic devices — such as computers, e-readers, smart phones, and even energy-efficient light bulbs — that could be damaging to the eyes over time.The decreased glare means that wearers often find their eyes are less tired, particularly at the end of the day.
Many anti-reflection lenses include an additional coating that repels water and grease, making them easier to keep clean.

Caring for Glasses with Antireflective Lenses
Never place your AR-coated lenses faced down on any surface to avoid scratches. If you need to take them off, safely place the glasses in its case.
When cleaning AR-coated lenses, use only products that your optometrist recommends. Lens cleaners with harsh chemicals may damage the anti-reflective coating.
Also, do not attempt to clean AR-coated lenses without wetting them first. Using a dry cloth on a dry lens can cause lens scratches. And because antireflective coating eliminates light reflections that can mask lens surface defects, fine scratches often are more visible on AR-coated lenses than on uncoated lenses.
