VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron NO REFLECTION ON YOU Anyone who wears glasses can optimize the potential of their lenses to provide sharp, clear images by having them treated with an "anti-reflective" |(AR) coating. Placement of these "anti-glare coatings," as they are also known, on the fronts and backs of lenses prevents reflected light from hindering the wearers' vision. Anti-reflective coatings also render lenses nearly invisible to onlookers, which helps them to see the wearer's eyes better. Today's AR coatings are not really coatings at all, but rather "baked" on (or fused to) the lens matrix, making them resistant to peeling and scratching. Moreover, many newer AR coatings are "hydrophobic," which means that they are less likely to attract water and grease that would otherwise cause streaking. When ordering your prescription eyeglasses, give careful consideration to having them treated with an anti-reflective (AR) coating. 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. At SKOWRON EYE CARE, we work together to consistently deliver quality, affordable eye care. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Anti-reflective coatings virtually eliminate halos around lights, leading to substantial improvements in night driving EYE CARE SKOWRON 370 N.
