What is the difference between anti-glare and anti-reflective coating for glasses?
Here are similar coatings which can block and reduce the rays. Anti-Glare deals with external sources of reflection off a surface – like bright sunlight or high ambient lighting conditions – and its impact on the readability of the image or information you are trying to read.
Anti-Reflection considers all sources, both internal and external, that accumulate to reduce the light transmitted through the display window, thereby reducing the readability of the viewed image or information. As light passes from one medium to another, be it from air to solid or between solid layers, the difference between the “index of refraction” in the adjacent mediums creates transitional phase differences, thereby increasing the amount of light reflected. These reflections are cumulative, and can “wash out” the display, making the image unreadable without increasing the light output via expensive power increases.
Regarding working in front of a computer, you may consider about getting a pair of computer glasses with blue light block lens which is able to block the harmful rays from the digital screens effectively and then protect your eyes well, relief your eye strains.
Though anti-glare glass and anti-reflective have many differences,but craft of them is same,this is optical coating techonology.application of them also similar,such as used in the computer screen,LCD screen.
