HOW TO ADD ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATING TO GLASSES

Answer:

 

When you purchase new glasses, you may be offered a variety of coatings. But what is an anti reflective coating? And what is polarization? All of the terminologies can be confusing, but don't worry, because SmartBuyGlasess is here to help you buy the best pair of glasses you can get!

What are the best coatings for glasses?

Some of the most common types of coatings include anti-scratch, anti-glare, anti-reflective, and polarization. Of these, the first coating helps prevent our glasses from experience wear and tear from fabric, sand, and interaction with other day-to-day objects. The latter three help enhance our vision and are especially effective for those that do activities outside under the intense sun.

The Myth of UV Protection and Lens Color

A UV protection coating should already be on every pair of glasses to protect wearers from harmful UV rays. Though some people believe a darker lens indicates better UV protection, this is actually not true. In fact, the UV protection coating is clear, so it can be added to any color lens without affecting the natural color.

Overall, glasses lens coatings can make a huge difference in the protection they provide and their usable life. In order to ensure quality products, buy with SmartBuyGlasses to enjoy complimentary anti-scratch, anti-reflective, and UV protection coatings.
