Glare is one of the biggest factors that contribute to the increasing popularity of anti-glare eyeglasses in sunglasses today. When looking out at the road on a sunny day, we often can’t help being attracted to the neon signs and road artists who are creating a dazzling display all over the road.
It’s no wonder why most people opt to wear an anti-glare protective lens to combat these eye stains. The use of anti-glare eyeglasses by drivers has actually been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (or FAA). So it’s definitely good news when you find that the approval was given for your favorite pair of sunglasses.
Most anti-glare glasses have a thin film of anti-glare coating over their lens. This anti-glare coating helps minimize or prevent the glare from certain bright objects and lights. The anti-glare coating also helps absorb the red light created by headlights and taillights.
The thin anti-glare coating on your anti-glare glasses ensures that any kind of glare will be absorbed, rather than intensify on its own. Unfortunately, this anti-glare protection isn’t available with digital devices like laptops and cell phones.
Most modern cell phones and laptops come with LCD screens, not LED screens. Therefore, you can’t rely on your anti-glare glasses to reduce the glare coming from digital devices like digital cameras and television screens. You must, therefore, put aside your digital devices and keep them away from your eyes while driving.
However, even if your computer screen is shielded by anti-glare glasses, you may still experience glare damage on other parts of your screen. Anti-glare screen protection doesn’t offer a full shield from all kinds of glare. For instance, you won’t be able to fully eliminate the glare coming from fluorescent lights in your workstation.
You may, however, eliminate most of the glare coming from computer monitors as well as computer screens. Digital display technology has made it possible for almost any level of anti-glare screen protection to be provided on modern computer screens.
Anti-glare lenses reduce glare by redirecting the light that comes through your anti-glare glasses. The light that comes through your anti-glare glasses will be reflected back, or filtered, and reduce the amount of glare. Anti-glare lenses can be designed to reflect certain colors or to filter out certain colors.
This filtering process reduces or eliminates most of the blue light, which often comes from fluorescent lights, onboard computer displays, or television screens. Blue light filters out a lot of colors including green, yellow, orange, and red. Red light is filtered out as well but typically only red colors are filtered out.
An anti-glare screen protector will also offer other benefits. These glasses help to keep your eyes healthy as they help to lower the amount of stress on your eyes. They also provide you with better color vision. Some anti-glare glasses can actually increase your color vision as well.
These anti glare glasses come in many different shapes, colors, and sizes. There are even some styles available with clear lenses. Some manufacturers even have anti-glare glasses with UV protection and anti-reflection coatings.
If you suffer from color blindness, you may want to consider anti-glare glasses that have tinted lenses. You can get these tinted anti-glare glasses in black and white or colorful patterns. The benefit of wearing anti-glare glasses or with anti-reflection coatings is to reduce the amount of light that reflects off of your computer screen.
This reduction in light reflection reduces your eyes’ strain. The anti-glare glasses will also reduce the glare from any lights that are near your monitor, including your neighbor’s lights or the sun’s rays. Your eyes will thank you in the long run.
