The Fascinating World Of Eyewear And Lenses

Ever wonder what's the difference between non-coated lenses and anti-reflective lenses?  

At 180EYEWEAR, we believe in providing our customers with choices that suit their unique needs, preferences and lifestyle. That's why we offer both anti-reflective coated and non-coated lenses. Let's explore the reasons behind our commitment to providing these options.

Understanding Anti-Reflective Coatings

Anti-reflective coatings are thin layers applied to eyeglass lenses to minimise reflections and glare. This technology enhances visual clarity, reduces eye strain and improves the overall aesthetics of eyewear. The benefits of AR coatings include increased light transmission, improved night vision and the elimination of distracting reflections on the lenses.

Why We Play in Both AR and Non-AR Coatings?

1. Customer Preferences

We recognise that preferences vary among our diverse customer base. While some individuals appreciate the added benefits of anti-reflective coatings, others may prefer a simpler, classic more transparent look without the coating. By offering both options, we ensure that our customers can choose the eyewear that aligns with their personal style and visual needs.

2. Versatility For Different Environments

Anti-reflective coatings excel in reducing glare, making them ideal for tasks such as night driving or computer use. However, there are situations where a non-coated lens may be preferred. For example, during outdoor activities, some users may opt for lenses without AR coatings to avoid potential smudging or cleaning challenges associated with outdoor environments.

3. Cost Considerations

We understand that budget constraints can influence eyewear choices. AR coatings involve additional manufacturing processes, which can contribute to a slightly higher cost. By offering non-coated lenses, we provide a more cost-friendly option without compromising on quality, allowing customers to make an informed decision based on their financial considerations.

4. Preserving Aesthetic Appeal

Some users appreciate the classic look of uncoated lenses, as they can convey a timeless and sophisticated style. By offering non-AR coated options, we cater to those who prioritise the aesthetic appeal of their eyewear without sacrificing functionality.

We are commitment is to provide eyewear solutions that cater to the diverse needs and preferences of our customers. Whether you opt for the advanced benefits of anti-reflective coatings or prefer the simplicity of non-coated lenses, we ensure that you have the freedom to choose eyewear that aligns with your lifestyle.

It's all about offering clarity, style and versatility in every pair of glasses we provide.
