What is an AR coating? Is it worth putting on my glasses?

Updated: Mar 6, 2019

If you want to maximize on sharp vision and look fabulous in your new glasses, then the short answer is “Yes!”

An AR coating is a clear anti-reflective “no-glare” coating that can be applied to the front and/or back of your lenses. It serves dual cosmetic & functional purpose.

Cosmetically, it reduces lens light reflections, enhancing your appearance and allowing other people to see your eyes clearly through the lens. It makes lenses look almost invisible in different types of light.
