No-Glare Coating: Not Just a Fancy Add-On

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

No-glare, anti-reflective coating, or anti-glare, whatever you may call it, is a game-changer for anyone who wears glasses. Whether you wear them all day every day or just to walk from your bed to the bathroom in the morning, it can completely change your vision.

I remember getting my first pair of glasses with an anti-reflective coating when I started working at Taylor Eye Care. It was almost scary how well I could see. I've worn glasses since the 6th grade, always opting for the cheapest pair. I was that person who always bought plastic lenses with absolutely nothing extra. I could see for the most part, but driving home from work in the dark was miserable, my eyes were fatigued, and nobody could see my eyes unless I took my glasses off. This is perfectly pictured with Jessica and Christine. Jessica (on the left) has one of our Crizal no-glare treatments on her lenses. Christine (to the right), while still adorable, we can't see her eyes because hers do not have the no-glare coating.

Our no glare coating removes all the reflections from lights whether you’re inside in fluorescent lighting or outside driving. Having this coating reduce reflections not only helps you see better, but also makes your eyes feel better at the end of the day.

No-glare coating also allows much more light to enter through your lens and to your retina which is how we see. If your lenses don’t have an anti reflective coating - all of that light is just being reflected away from your eyes, hindering your vision. The no-glare coating is not just a fancy add-on, but an essential component that can greatly enhance your vision.

Fun fact: All phoropters (the large, “glasses” that Dr. Taylor places over your eyes to switch the lenses around while you identify which one is clearer) are made with a non-glare coating. Therefore, if you want to see as well as you do when Dr. Taylor is determining your new glasses prescription, you need to get the non-glare coating.

Talk soon,
