The benefits of an AR treatment are clear.  Distracting reflections and glare can rob your eyes of up to 14% of available light.  An Anti-Reflective treatment allows virtually all available light to pass through your lenses for sharper, clearer, more comfortable vision.  Recent tests prove that patients are able to see more clearly with an Anti-Reflective treatment, especially under low light conditions when reduced light transmission can seriously affect vision.  The New Anti-reflective treatments like EVC, Crizal, Zeiss, Teflon & Kodak, have a special topcoat which makes your lenses easier to clean and care for than ever before!

Improve your night vision.  Anti-Reflective treatments virtually eliminate the often dangerous reflective glare from oncoming headlights and lamp posts.  By seeing more clearly at night, you can drive with greater comfort and confidence.

Reduce eye strain.  Spending long hours on a computer screen, whether at work or play, can dramatically contribute to eye fatigue.  Anti-Reflective treatments eliminate the glare and discomfort this activity often causes.

Don’t hide your eyes any longer.  Now you can eliminate annoying reflections on your lenses with an Anti-Reflective treatment, enhancing your ability to communicate with others.  Your lenses will become nearly invisible, making it easier for you to see better, and look better!
