The primary purpose of anti-reflective treatment, sometimes called "AR," is to eliminate glare and allow more light to pass through your prescription lenses. Reducing glare is beneficial for many reasons. Not only does AR eliminate reflection that others may see on the surface of your lens, but also greatly reduces the glare you see on computer screens, from lights on the road when you are driving at night, and from fluorescent lighting indoors.
Premium anti-reflective treatments also repel dust, and resist water, oil, and fingerprints, making your lenses very easy to clean. FramesDirect.com offers premium anti-reflective treatment as part of both the Standard and Premium lens options.
To include premium AR, choose either the Standard or Premium option when adding single vision or progressive prescription lenses.
With the Standard lens option, you get DuraClear™, a premium anti-reflective treatment that lets in 99% of available light and improves clarity and contrast. Duraclear™ also helps prevent eyestrain and includes an SPF of 25. And lenses with Duraclear™ are easy to clean thanks to the super hydrophobic coating.
With the Premium lens option you get Digital Light ProtectionBlueReflect™ for single vision & progressive lenseswhich helps to filter out harmful blue light. These lenses, with UV protection and an anti-reflective treatment, may help protect you from eye damage associated with prolonged screen use.
