Millions of people across the country wear eyeglasses to improve their vision. Did you know that special lens coatings are available from your eye doctor that can improve the functionality, comfort and even appearance of your eyeglasses?
Below, Vienna Eyecare Center discusses the different types of coatings available.
Objects under a bright light source will often appear to have a halo of light surrounding them. This can be problematic when driving at night, as headlights from oncoming traffic can be almost blinding. If you are suffering from glare or sensitivity to bright lights, your optometrist might recommend lenses with an anti-reflective coating, which will help reduce glare and make night driving safer.
People who lead active lifestyles will appreciate the strength and durability that scratch-resistant lens coatings provide. The lenses are treated with a scratch-resistant layer on both the front and back surfaces, making them a great option for children and other people who are prone to damaging their glasses.
This special coating allows the glasses to darken (essentially functioning like sunglasses) when you step outside. This is helpful for people who don’t want to worry about remembering to bring sunglasses with them whenever they go outside.
