Your Guide to Lens Coatings 

Are you wondering if you should have the lenses on your glasses coated? Certain coatings help protect your lenses from wear and tear and can also improve your comfort. Here’s a look at the most popular lens coatings:

AR- Anti-glare lenses will change your experience wearing glasses, this coating enhances nighttime driving, computer time, office work, and overall eye fatigue. An anti-glare coating (also known as an anti-reflective coating) prevents white light from hitting and damaging your retina.

If you film videos or give presentations in your glasses, an anti-glare coating could help to improve your appearance by removing the distracting reflection from the glass all while protecting the health of your eye. 

Scratch Resistant
Looking to protect your glasses from normal wear and tear? Add a scratch-resistant coating to them and you’ll find that they don’t get marked up quite as easily. 

You’ll still want to protect your glasses by using a proper case and cleaning them using a non-scratching, microfiber cloth. However, this type of coating can help your glasses stay looking like new for much longer. 

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, a polarized lens might make it a bit more comfortable to be outside on a sunny day. Just imagine walking into a parking lot and getting blinded by the reflections from the cars-it is uncomfortable and can be hazardous. Polarization eliminates horizontal light that carries harmful rays such as white light, blue light, and glare. For this reason, polarized lenses are a must-have for boaters and people who spend a lot of time in the sun. As a result of stopping glare, polarization makes things appear sharper and clearer, it even enhances the color you see which can reduce eye strain and fatigue.

Blue Block
Modern devices, like your phone and computer screen, emit “blue light,” which may cause vision damage if you spend long hours looking at it. However, whether or not you believe blue light can damage your eyes, it’s a well-known fact that it can cause eye strain.

Blue light-blocking glasses can help reduce eye fatigue and help you see better when staring at your screen. Blue light is known to alter our circadian rhythms (sleep/wake cycle) and blocking it may help improve your quality of sleep. 

If you like the idea of never having to take off your regular prescription glasses to switch to sunglasses, you should opt for transition lenses. Transition lenses react to UV light, which means they automatically become tinted when exposed to the sun. Some forms of transitions even get dark behind the wheel of your car and interact with natural light called extra active transitions.

While there is a moment of gradual transition as you step outside or back in, transition lenses can provide a whole new level of convenience that’s hard to come by when dealing with an item as critical as your eyewear, they even naturally block blue light.
