Reducing Glare Enhances Your Sight At Night
The problem: reflective glare. Because visibility is so important when driving at night, drivers should do everything they can to help themselves see better. Taking simple precautions such as making sure your headlights are working and that your windshield is clean to reduce unnecessary glare is common sense. But what about that dangerous reflective glare? Reflective glare can be distracting, whether from bright sunshine or oncoming headlights in nighttime traffic.
While most people are aware of the importance of regular eye exams, few people know about the wonderful benefits of the new anti-reflective lenses available to all eyeglass wearers. Anti-reflective lenses improve the quality and value of your eyewear. Anti-reflective lenses reduce annoying and disturbing reflections. They also make your eyewear more attractive.
Users often experience the most precise, crisp and clear natural vision in a brilliance that is not possible with uncoated lenses. With anti-reflective lenses, wearers can recognize potential hazards on the road faster, especially at night. The reflections of street lamps and headlights on your lenses are virtually eliminated.
Ghost images are more than just an annoyance. They contribute to eye fatigue, especially when you use a computer or drive at night. Anti-reflective lenses reduce the glare that causes eye fatigue. By reducing glare and sharpening visual performance, anti-reflective lenses help you see with more clarity. Clarity with less glare and ghost images helps your eyes and reduces strain and fatigue.
There are other benefits of anti-reflective lenses beside nighttime safety. Anti-reflective lenses are nearly invisible, making your thick or even ordinary glasses look thinner and transparent. You’ll enjoy direct eye contact, unhindered by distracting reflections
For people who wear glasses, distracting reflections and glare can rob the eyes of up to 14 percent of available light. AR lenses allow virtually all the available light to pass through the lenses for sharper, clearer, more comfortable vision. Recent tests prove that people are able to see more clearly with AR lenses, especially under low light conditions at night, when reduced light transmission can seriously affect vision.
The new generation of AR lenses now have a special topcoat which makes lenses easier to clean and care for than ever before. These lenses are nearly invisible, making it easier for wearers to see better and look better. Additional benefits of AR lenses include:
- Glare Reduction - Wearers see more clearly as the reduction in glare increases light transmission. Because high-index and polycarbonate lenses reflect more light than standard plastic, it’s important to note that wears of these materials benefit even more from AR lenses.
- Better Night Vision - AR lenses virtually eliminate reflective glare caused by oncoming headlights, so wearers have better, more comfortable night vision for both driving and being outdoors during twilight and night hours.
- Improved Computer Vision - AR lenses can improve computer vision and reduce eye fatigue by eliminating glare coming off a screen. They also eliminate some of the eyestrain caused by working under fluorescent lights.
- Cosmetic Appeal - By eliminating annoying reflections, AR lenses become nearly invisible, enhancing the wearer’s ability to communicate with others.
