A high-quality multi-layer anti-reflection coating eliminates most surface reflections. We all know how safety and visual clarity are very important in driving, particularly at night and when lights are reflected off wet road surfaces. The annoying reflections of street lamps and headlights are reduced, as more light is transmitted to the eyes, allowing drivers to take appropriate reactions to changing road conditions. An uncoated spectacle lens loses 8% of light off the two surfaces, reducing clarity for the wearer.
Anti-reflection coating is visible on the reverse side of the lenses as a “bloom”, not colouring the lens like a tint. This gives the lens a more “matt” finish, making them less conspicuous, more attractive and allow direct eye-contact with other people.
