Anti Reflective Lenses

Anti-reflective Lenses. What Are The Benefits?


When a beam of light strikes the surface of a clear lens, light transmission (the amount of light that actually passes through the lens) is about 92%. The remaining 8% is lost through reflections from the front and back surfaces of the lens. Loss of light results in a slight decrease in visual ability and an increase in awareness of annoying reflections. Modern anti-reflection lenses eliminate virtually all reflected light from indoor lighting, street lights, headlights, TV and computer screens. Anti-reflection lenses also provide a reflection-free appearance to your lenses, thus enhancing eye contact.


These lenses have a colourless ANTI-REFLECTION COATING allowing 99% of all light to pass through the lens to your eye. This special coating will significantly decrease unwanted reflected light, provide a more comfortable visual environment, and enhance your eyewear's appearance.

Anti-reflection coated lenses require SPECIAL CARE. Commercial lens cleaners and cleaning cloths specifically designed for today's special lens coatings are highly recommended for optimum performance. Our staff will be happy to help you choose the proper lens cleaning materials for your new eyewear.
