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.

We offer the following premium anti-reflective products

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 ProtectionEyezen for single vision lenses and Kodak BlueReflect for progressive lenses—which deflects harmful blue light. This option also includes premium anti-reflective treatment and UV protection with the added benefit of protecting your eyes while using digital devices.
