buying new eyeglasses, they try to sell all these add ons, one being anti glare. Is t his just a gimmick? ?
i heard it can cause your glasses to get get dirtier faster? what kind of glare can it cut down on?

I have them and my dad doesn't. Since I have anti-glare, I noticed that when I get photos done, I can actually see my eyes whereas my dads eyes can't be seen due to the flash of the camera reflected on the lens. It is also supposed to reduce strain when using the computer. If I were you, I would buy them. If they are expensive then shop around to see where you can find them cheaper.

If you are working under fluorescent lights or on a computer all day long the anti glare is worth the extra, cause your eyes don't get as tired.

If you keep your glasses for awhile it is a good idea.

I think Anti-glare glasses is a good idea.

Anti-glare glasses are special glasses designed to help reduce and relieve eye strain caused by looking at a computer for a period of time. When you stare at a computer screen, it forces your eye muscles to remain in one position. Generally, this position is also at a strenuous level. Anti-glare glasses help to reduce this strain.

Eye strain is characterized by blurred vision, burning eyes, headache, and tired eyes. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms while using the computer, anti-glare glasses may be a wise buy for you. Even if you are not a regular computer user, your eyes may benefit from anti-glare glasses. In addition to being affected by the glare from your computer screen, your eyes can be come strained from being in a room with poor lighting. Anti-glare glasses can also be beneficial for this type of situation, as they help reduce the strain on your eyes.

Anti-glare glasses help reduce the amount of strain your eyes feel by reducing the convergence of your eyes and by helping to reposition your eyes to a more comfortable position. This reduces the strain placed on the muscles in your eyes, as well as the tension your eyes experience. In addition, anti-glare glasses help reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation that reaches your eyes, and they do not magnify the light like traditional eyeglasses do.

Anti-glare glasses can also be glasses with a special anti-reflective coating. As with the other type of non-prescription anti-glare glasses, the coating on these glasses is beneficial for reducing eyestrain when using a computer. In addition, it eliminates the appearance of “halos” around the headlights of cars at night. If this distracts you while you are driving, anti-glare glasses may be right for you.

On the down side, anti-glare glasses with this special coating are more prone to becoming scratched and to holding oily fingerprints. In order to prevent scratching, it is necessary to use a special cloth to wipe anti-glare glasses clean.

i work in an opticians and some of the antiglare coatings are good but others are not worth the money. im not too sure wat opticians your with or what companies they deal with but i can name a few types of coating that are good. there is one from essilor called a scotchguard alize its good for cleaning and cosmetically the lens looks clearer in the frame. then there is zeiss they would probably be the best out of the lot there coating are great. they have many different types if you drive at night time they have a coating called a gold et coat it cuts down on glare off of headlights at night time and the finish is nice on it too. then you have here easyclean option which is called lotutec and it basically does what it says its easy to keep clean the lens looks 10 times better in the frame and it cuts down a lot on glare. i hope i helped if you just ask your opticians for the easyclean option they should give you the best you can get. but anti glare is very good everyone should have it on there glasses.

Supposedly, from what I was told, it's supposed to cut down on "nighttime headlight glare" specifically. Honestly, I've had my glasses with the special "glare protection" (yes, they talked me into it. I have a sensitivity to light, especially at night, so I figured why not...) for over a year and I can't tell any difference at all. None. Zip. Zero. So was it worth it? I'd say 100% NO.

An untreated lens , that is to say, a lens without an Anti - Reflection coating only allows 92% of the light to pass through the lens. The other 8% is lost by being reflected off, and scattering on the surface of your lenses , which is glare.

An AR coating allows 99.9 % of the light to pass through the lens, therefore there is no glare on the surface anymore.

It cuts reflected glare off your lenses . It is quite different than a sunglass which cuts glare from the source.

Good camera lenses, telescopes, and binoculars all have an AR coating. There is obviously a reason for it.

Even the TV screen and monitor will reflect light on your lenses and cause reflections that most people find very tiring. The AR coating eliminates that.

Another benefit, besides 8% clearer vision is for the cosmetic appearance. Those looking at you will see your eyes clearly instead of just the reflected lights in the room. The lenses almost become invisible.

The previous poster says she doesn't see a difference, but that is just because she doesn't have another pair identical, but without the AR to compare it with. It is impossible for there not to be a big difference.

Some people expect miracles from the treatment, thinking headlights won't affect them anymore , but that isn't the case. The lights will still be bright, but you won't be getting the glare on your lenses.

Ever notice on a rainy night how all the lights reflect off the road ? , well most of that is eliminated with an AR coating.

All newscasters on TV have an AR coating on their lenses, otherwise you would be seeing the studio lights in their glasses instead of their eyes.

So, yes, AR is a very worthwhile investment for anyone.

Use a real lens cleaning solution for them that has anti static properties in it and there is no reason for them to get dirty faster.

The good quality coatings have a hydrophobic coating mixed in with it, that makes them very easy to clean, and are water repellant.

No, anti-glare is not a gimmick. I have them on my glasses and it does help to cut the glare.
