What is the difference between anti-reflective lenses and polarized lenses?

by globalopticalshop.com at 6/25/2010 1:49:20 PM

Anti-reflective lenses cut out most of the reflections caused by light bouncing between the two lens surfaces and interfering with good, comfortable vision.

Polarized lenses cut out light from one whole meridian, typically the horizontal one. This minimizes the glare from light that bounces off water, the hood of your car, or a shiny road surface. Polarization is useful for fishermen or people that do a lot of driving, though many outdoors people prefer polarized sun lenses.

Polarization is usually applied only to sun lenses, whereas anti-reflective coatings can be used on both indoor and outdoor glasses with success.
