The moment your lenses survive even the 
toughest endurance tests. 
ZEISS lenses with anti-reflection coating. 
 
 
Fewer reflections - better vision 
 
When light rays strike a lens, they do not entirely pass through the lens surface, but are partially reflected. We see many examples of this in our daily lives, such as in shop and car window reflections. 
 
The reflections occurring on both sides of the lenses are veryirritating; they lead to blurring and a reduction in the amount oflight reaching the eyes, which can impair the clarity of vision. 
In 1935, Carl Zeiss invented and patented the principle of Anti-Reflection (AR) coating. 
 
The AR coating consists of several ultra thin layers applied to the lens in high vacuum conditions. 
 
The physical properties of the AR coating have been created so that the reflected components of the light suppress or cancel each other out. The higher the quality of the coating, the more effective this will be.

ZEISS AR coatings make your lenses more transparent and your glasses less conspicuous and more attractive.  
 
ZEISS lenses with AR coating are also available with a light brown tint which filters the light for even more comfortable vision. 
 
We recommend an AR coating on all ZEISS thinner and lighter lenses, as the special materials used to make lenses thinne increase surface reflections. 
 
Lenses with ZEISS AR coating can also provide additional safety when driving at night by reducing the sometimes blinding reflections of street lamps and headlights. They allow more light to reach your eyes, allowing for faster recognition of potential sources of danger.
