Anti-Reflective Lenses

Bright Lights, Big Glare

Driving at night can be challenging under the best of circumstance, but battling the glare from oncoming headlights can make a stressful situation even worse. Nowadays, you can beat the glare by opting for anti-reflective (AR) Anti-Reflective Lenseslenses.

Technological advances in anti-glare coatings virtually eliminate glare by allowing 99.5 percent of available light to pass through your lenses. That means fewer visual distractions when you’re sitting behind the wheel, and less eyestrain when you’re sitting in front of a computer (or any) screen for hours.

There’s another advantage to going anti-glare—you’ll look better. Your lenses will appear clearer, practically invisible, allowing people to focus on your eyes and not the reflection in your glasses.

By the way, the AR coating is applied in our full-service eyewear lab, allowing for personalized, hands-on production of your glasses.

Visit our Good Looks Eyewear stores in either Pittsburgh or Cranberry and ask our ABO certified Opticians about AR lenses.

Contact us at the Pittsburgh location or the Cranberry location if you have any question about Anti-Reflective Lenses.

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Currently, more than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma, approximately 120,000 are blind from glaucoma, accounting for 9% to 12% of all cases of blindness. Glaucoma is called “the sneak thief of sight” since there are no symptoms and once vision is lost, it’s permanent. As much as 40% of vision can be lost without a person noticing. Those at higher risk include people of African, Asian, and Hispanic descent. Other high-risk groups include: people over 60, family members of those already diagnosed, diabetics, and people who are severely nearsighted. Regular eye exams are especially important for those at higher risk for glaucoma, and may help to prevent unnecessary vision loss. Talk to friends and family about glaucoma. If you have glaucoma, don’t keep it a secret. Let your family members know.
