Many eyeglass wearers choose the traditional option: Anti-reflective coating. Lenses that do not have anti-reflective coating come with a fundamental disadvantage: They produce clearly visible light reflections that can cause vision problems. These light reflections are particularly disruptive on wet roads or while driving in the dark, but also in face-to-face conversations when people you are talking with see their own mirror images in your glasses instead of your eyes. The advantage of anti-reflective coating: It facilitates transparent, clear vision and undisturbed perception, makes eyeglasses more attractive, and facilitates a clear view of the eyeglass wearer’s eyes.
The effectiveness of the anti-reflective coating is graded in accordance with degrees of reflection: The grades of anti-reflective coating are basically "simple," "medium," and "super," and can be combined into various upgrade packages (such as coating that repels dirt or filter tints) (Decision-making tip: Plastic or glass?).
These anti-reflective coatings have a single identifying and distinctive feature: So-called residual reflection. It features a characteristic color for anti-reflective coating regardless of the lens material. It is practical for the eyeglass wearer: The eye care professional can easily identify the anti-reflective coating and can offer the standard the wearer is used to when switching to another lens material.
