Anti-Reflective

anti-reflective

More comfort. Better vision. Reduced glare from oncoming headlights. Greater cosmetic appeal. It might be hard to believe, but anti-reflective lenses can provide all of these benefits—as an add-on for any number of lens products. The same technology used to provide anti-reflective benefits to precision lenses in microscopes and cameras, is now available to enhance your healthy sight.

Watch a short video about Anti-Reflective lens treatments.

An anti-reflective treatment applied on the front and the back of prescription lenses greatly reduces the light reflected by the lens surfaces. As a result, your eyes appear clearer behind the lenses, vision is more defined, and glare from reflected objects—especially headlights at night—is virtually eliminated. Plus, if you have a high-powered “strong” prescription, anti-reflective coating makes your eyes appear more natural.

How anti-reflective lenses works

Carefully calibrated layers of metal oxides are applied to the front and the back of the lenses. Each of these layers is designed to block reflected light. That includes glare, annoying reflections, and the hazy “halos” you often see around lights at night.

Take special care to use only the cleaning agents recommended by your eye care professional, as anti-reflective treatments are delicate by design. They work well for sunglasses too—but as a general rule should only be applied to the back side of the lens to eliminate glare reflected around the sides of the frame.

Dear TSO Patients,

We will continue taking precautions at our office.

-Our staff will be wearing masks. We also ask that any patient coming to our office wear a mask.

-Patients will call our office when they arrive to check in. Patients will be asked to stay in their cars until we are ready to start the exam.

-Patients’ temperature will be taken upon entry, and they will be asked to sanitize their hands.

-To reduce the amount of people in the office, only the patient is allowed into the exam room unless the patient is a minor or need additional assistance.

-Exam rooms, credit card terminals, counter tops, etc. will be wiped down between patients.

-Patients should call when they come for pickup of glasses and contact lens orders, we will deliver to them curbside.

-Frames that have been handled in the optical will be placed into a tray, and sanitized before they are returned to the frame board.

-Our office will continue to do curbside dispensing for eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Thank you for your support.

Drs. Hassett, Noorali, and Your TSO Staff
