    Antireflective coating is also called AR coating or antiglare coating. It can improve your vision through your lenses and eliminate reflections of light from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses. In general, the plastic lens transmits about 90 percent of light to your eyes. Antireflective coating can eliminate the reflection of light and allow 99 percent of available light to pass through the lenses. Furthermore, it can decrease glare from a computer screen and reduce eyestrain. Therefore, you will have a good vision.

    The anti-reflective coating part means that some coming lights will be reflective at the surface and not come through the lenses of eyeglasses. It is the protective role which help your eyes filter some lights. Usually the strong sun lights will be reflective when they come to the surface of the lenses.

    Well, anti-reflective coating, so-called anti-glare coating or AR coating, improves our vision through the lenses, as well as the appearance of our eyeglasses by eliminating reflections of light coming from eyeglass lenses' front and back surface. As a result, 99.5 percent of available lights are allowed to pass through the lenses and enter our eye for clear vision, especially in low light conditions, I mean, nighttime driving. For example, when we are driving at night, the lights from headlights of other cars are really dazzling resulting in our horizon confusion, while, the anti-reflective coating can reduce the lights and limit them to a comfortable level so that we do judge the road conditions quickly and correctly.
