Non-glare (or anti-reflective) coating is a common and cost-effective feature that many eyeglass wearers elect to have put on their lenses. It’s one of those things that you usually don’t notice or think about when you have it, but you notice when it’s not there!
Non-glare lenses are simply lenses that have this anti-reflective coating applied to the lens. Anti-reflective coating works by eliminating the reflections of light from the front and back the lens. Typical anti-reflective coating allows 99.5 percent of light to pass through, meaning that there is only a very faint hint of light on the lens even in the brightest conditions. The anti-glare protection allows more light to come through and results in better vision for you as well as a better view for others. When people look at you, they won’t see a glare off of the lenses of your glasses. Glares off of your glasses can ruin pictures and be distracting to people speaking with you because the glare obscures the view of your eyes.
Beyond the cosmetic reasons, the largest benefits of anti-reflective coating is sharper vision when driving at night, and more comfort when using a computer for long periods of time. You won’t experience a glare from the computer screen, and the sharper vision will mean easier focusing for your eyes.
It’s also a good idea to get the anti-reflective coating applied to the back surface of your sunglasses. This helps eliminate glare from sunlight when the sun is behind you. Most AR coatings now also include a layer that prevents water spots, thus making them much easier to clean. There are even coatings that help resist skin oils while also making smudges easier to wipe off.
Glasses that have anti-reflective coating should be given special care, as some lens cleaners contain chemicals that could damage the anti-reflective coating. With any eyewear, make sure you know how to care for your gear to give it a long and useful life. Ask your eye care professional if you have questions about care for your eyewear, or would like to know more about anti-glare options.

OCT uses light waves to create high definition images and cross sections of the retina and optic nerve. The OCT helps us to see the different layers of the retina and assists with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes related eye issues.
Retinal imaging technology helps us to capture images of the structures in back of the eye. This allows us to evaluate the retina for changes that can be associated with systemic conditions like hypertension and diabetes as well as diseases related to the retina and the optic nerve. This technology can also help us to monitor for changes over time.
This retinal imaging technology gives us a wide 200° view of the retina in a single image without the need of dilation drops. The Daytona is a great tool for screening retinal problems as well as monitoring any changes over time.
The visual field test helps to measure and map out the central and peripheral vision. This information can be helpful in testing for neurological diseases, retinal function as well as monitoring glaucoma.
