Anti-Reflective

anti-reflective

More comfort. Better vision. Reduced glare from oncoming headlights. Greater cosmetic appeal. It might be hard to believe, but anti-reflective lenses can provide all of these benefits—as an add-on for any number of lens products. The same technology used to provide anti-reflective benefits to precision lenses in microscopes and cameras, is now available to enhance your healthy sight.

Watch a short video about Anti-Reflective lens treatments.

An anti-reflective treatment applied on the front and the back of prescription lenses greatly reduces the light reflected by the lens surfaces. As a result, your eyes appear clearer behind the lenses, vision is more defined, and glare from reflected objects—especially headlights at night—is virtually eliminated. Plus, if you have a high-powered “strong” prescription, anti-reflective coating makes your eyes appear more natural.

How anti-reflective lenses works

Carefully calibrated layers of metal oxides are applied to the front and the back of the lenses. Each of these layers is designed to block reflected light. That includes glare, annoying reflections, and the hazy “halos” you often see around lights at night.

Take special care to use only the cleaning agents recommended by your eye care professional, as anti-reflective treatments are delicate by design. They work well for sunglasses too—but as a general rule should only be applied to the back side of the lens to eliminate glare reflected around the sides of the frame.

COVID-19 Update:

We are excited to announce that as of May 4th, our clinics and optical departments will be back open. Our team has been working diligently to make sure all areas of the practice are safe and clean for our patients to return. For the health and safety of our patients and team, we ask you to wear a mask when entering the practice. We will also have special hours for our practices to make sure we are cleaning in-between visits and limiting the number of patients and staff in our practices at one time.

Our downtown and Northeast location will be open Monday through Friday, while our Park Ave location will be open a few days a week. Our clinics will be open at 8 am, and our optical departments will be starting at 8:30 am. Please call ahead of your visit so our team can be prepared once you arrive. We have missed seeing you in our practices and can’t wait to hear how you are doing.

Thank you,

The Eye Care Associates Team
