Anti-reflective coatings (also called AR coatings) were developed to give microscope and camera lenses better light transmission and crisper, clearer images. It is no wonder they were quickly adopted for use on eyeglass lenses. Better light transmission results in better vision through the lens. The reduction of annoying reflected light from the surface of the lens creates a noticeable decrease in glare and halos surrounding lights at night. AR coatings also result in a transparent cosmetic appearance.
The newest generations of AR coatings incorporate a hydrophobic layer which is highly scratch resistant and makes for easier cleaning.
