What Are Anti-Glare Glasses?
Sometimes referred to as “anti-reflective glasses”, anti-glare glasses are a type of eyewear equipped with unique lenses. These lenses offer precise vision correction just like any other, but are coated with a high tech chemical solution that filters out glares and hazes. The result? A clearer perspective that improves vision accuracy and reduces pesky eyestrain.
How Are Anti-Glare Glasses Made?
Creating anti-glare glasses involves a combination of expert craftsmanship and high-tech manufacturing. The first step is a careful inspection of the lens’ surface. If even a single microscopic dent or smudge exists on the lens’ exterior, application of the anti-reflective coating will be uneven — which of course, means that it will become defective. Every lens we make is examined thoroughly, bathed in a cleaning solution, and then checked again before moving on to the next step.
Once we’re completely certain that the lens is perfectly shaped and clean, we place the lens into a special coating chamber. This high-tech machine sprays each individual lens with the special anti-reflection coating solution. Then, it automatically draws air out of itself using an air-locked vacuum to eliminate the chance of any air bubbles appearing on the lens.
Using Anti-Glare Glasses for Night Driving
Anti-glare glasses serve many different purposes. One of them being night driving. While some companies sell yellow-tinted glasses lenses for night-time driving, it’s a well-documented fact that these products are extremely dangerous to use. Since driving relies so much on distinguishing different colors, yellow-tinted night driving glasses can negatively impact how clearly you will read stop signs, view traffic signals, and more. Anti-glare glasses are superior in that they block out the glaring lights of other cars WITHOUT influencing how you perceive color. (This effect also doubles as a reason to use them as anti-glare computer glasses.)
How to Clean Anti-Glare Glasses
When cleaning your favorite pair of anti-glare lenses, be sure to only use cleaning sprays and solutions that your optometrist recommends. Avoid using dishwashing detergent or other commonplace household cleaners at all costs. These solutions may contain chemicals that can deteriorate and lessen the quality of the lens coating on your glasses.
