When it comes to managing the reflectiveness of your glasses, there are three options of lens coatings you can opt for on your glasses lenses.
1. Standard uncoated or hard coated lenses.
2. Anti-reflection coated lenses.
3. No Reflection coated lenses.
The difference between these coatings is stark. For the purpose of today's topic, I'd say these are the main differences:
Standard Uncoated or Hard Coated Lenses
These are the cheapest lenses on the market, and are highly reflective. Uncoated lenses will not have reduced reflectivity at all, and standard hard coating only helps slightly boost scratch resistance.
Anti-Reflection Coated Lenses
These reduce resultant reflections from within the lens. (They are not "anti-glare".. They will not reduce "glare" from external sources.. for this you need polarised sunglasses.) The main quality difference in this market tends to be the strength of the scratch resistance, whether they are water-resistant, dust-resistant etc, and mainly how long a warranty and how good the warranty is on them. Some more expensive anti-reflection coated lenses come with a no quibble 2 year guarantee, even covering scratches. (I supply these at my studio in MediaCity, Manchester as it allows me to give the best customer care should any issues ever arise.)
No Reflection Coated Lenses
These are what I showcase in the video above, and whilst impossible to remove 100% of reflections, all reflections from within the lens and externally are dramatically reduced. Any reflections seen are reflected at a bandwidth of light which is not very noticeable to the human eye. The angle of reflection on these lenses is also quite high, so you would have to adjust your head position quite a lot to even see the reflection. These incredible No Reflection lenses
are intelligently designed, newly invented, and now stocked at The Eyewear Stylist in Media City, Manchester!
