2019’s Best Anti-Reflective Coatings For Your Eyeglass Lenses

2019's best anti-reflective coatings for your eyeglass lenses

Anti-reflective coatings on eyeglass lenses may have had a rough start, but now, they’ve evolved so much that they are indispensable to any quality pair of specs.

Progress means more options, and with so many anti-reflective lenses on the market, how do you know which set is right for you?

2019’s Best Anti-Reflective Coatings For Your Eyeglass Lenses

Before you purchase your next pair of glasses, you’ll want to consider which type of anti-reflective coating best suits you as an individual. We sell multiple kinds, so if you have a particular anti-reflective coating in mind, let us know.

But we believe these are the optical world’s three best anti-reflective coatings for your eyeglass lenses available in 2019:

1. Crizal Avance

Essilor launched the Crizal Avance lens over 10 years ago, and it continues to be a major success! Avance has proven itself to be standard and reliable, making it a leading anti-reflective coating for eyeglass lenses on the market. It cuts glare in everyday life surroundings, reduces eye strain, and contains UV protection without the appearance of a colored hue on the lenses. Although it’s not the latest and greatest, Crizal Avance still works wonderfully for most people.

Avance is a good choice for you if you’re someone who wants the everyday protection of one of the best anti-reflective coatings but don’t need cutting edge technology.

2. Crizal Prevencia

In 2014 Essilor launched a new anti-reflective coating called Crizal Prevencia. This AR is specifically designed to reduce eye strain due to the blue light we encounter because of phones, computers, tablets, etc. With our ever-increasing use of technology both at schools and in the workplace, Prevencia continues to benefit many people and remains one of the best anti-reflective coatings for your eyeglass lenses.

It’s blue-light blocking technology helps reduce eye strain and fatigue, is resistant to dust and smudges, and is more scratch-resistant than most other anti-reflective coatings. The only “downside” to Prevencia may not even be a downside for you. The lenses do have a slight purple hue to them, which is more easily seen in some light than others. However, most people don’t seem to mind it in exchange for the huge difference Prevencia makes in their vision and comfort.

Prevencia is the best anti-reflective coating for your eyeglasses if you spend more than 6 hours on the computer each day, or if you find yourself to be pretty light sensitive. We often recommend Prevencia to students, office workers, or people who are involved in tech and IT work.

3.Crizal Sapphire 360

Crizal Sapphire 360 is Essilor’s latest creation. It came out in Spring 2017 and is the newest and best anti-reflective coating on the market. Durable, nearly invisible on the lens, and known for its enhanced UV protection, Sapphire provides the clearest vision of all the anti-reflective coatings we can offer.

Sapphire is for you if you want the best of the best when it comes to Crizal anti-reflective products and eye protection from lenses. If you want the highest overall function we are able to offer in the eyewear market today, Sapphire is the best anti-reflective coating for your eyeglass lenses. 


Here at Vision Source Titusville, we believe a quality anti-reflective coating is crucial to any pair of glasses. We want to give you the clear vision, protection, and comfort you need. So which is the best anti-reflective coating for your next set of lenses?
