musicmuse09: can i use dettol to remove the coating?

MrRoundel: I worked as an optician in the mid-nineties. I was never a proponent of AR coatings for all of the reasons stated by those complaining about it, namely early "unwearability". While the AR coating does indeed allow for more light to pass through the lens, due to less reflecting away, and it does minimize distracting glare in photographs, it's not the best for most people. While techniques such as the one in this video may work, I wouldn't recommend it on $500 progressives. You should be able to take your glasses to your optometrist, optician, etc., and have them send it to their lab to have it removed for a nominal charge.

The CR39, by virtue of its material, cuts out a lot of UV light from entering your eyes. IIRC, polycarbonate even does better, and that's without any added coating. The UV treated lenses are better, and are a must for sunglasses, because your iris opens wider in the darkness and lets in more bad stuff. And most wear sunglasses outside in the sun anyway, right?

I used to gasp when co-workers would sell scratch-resistant coatings along with AR. Unless the technology has changed, the AR goes on last, therefore it will get scratched no matter what type of coating you have under it. Good luck all.

captain0ldy0da: Hello, Sir, you failed to mention whether or not your lenses are plastic or glass??

Sa: Well I am glad I tried it on an older spare pair, because not only did it not work but it removed the color from my frames. I tried isopropyl alcohol. Bust.

GizzleGoo: helps alot thanks!

Barbara Thomas: I'm nervous about using my thumbnail or the suggested bread tie. What else have people used? I do not want to scratch the lenses, obviously.

candhgt light: I wanna understand something does the anti glare is bad now ???

BMWg84: isopropyl alcohol will do it too

Ana Larson: I believe this coating is to get you to come back every 2 years and get new glasses. Can't wait to try it and get my expensive glasses back. Every day my glasses kept getting worse, bless you for sharing.

scott bird: This really surprised me. I don't know what kind of anti-reflective was used on your lenses, but this shouldn't cause it to come off. It sounds like they either applied some horrible version of it to your lenses, or maybe something was defective in how it was applied. This shouldn't actually work to remove it at all, yet it did on your lenses. With most Anti-reflective coatings this should just cause you to have super clean lenses!! Lol.. Anti-refective coatings on lenses are generally great, and very functional, but it whatever they put on your lenses was terrible!!

Man Falls: Psssh anti reflective.

Sean _: are there any optical shops in the US that will remove damaged ARC and reapply new antireflective coating?

Kim Ramsey: thank you!

Wolfeboronian: In 50 years, trained in a optical shop, I never had this problem with anti-reflective coatings until I bought these at Wal-Mart. A second Wal-Mart pair self-destructed in five months!   While I'm generally NOT in favor of class-action lawsuits, maybe it's TIME.

Kenny Chhoeun: Thanks so much the anti glare was bothering me so much I couldn't even see the white board at school

Kman: thanks much. I can see through mine just fine but they look terrible if you were to stand there looking at me with my glasses on. I may very well give this a try. this has now happened on the only two pair of eyewear I have ever owned. It happens after about 2 years. I will never get it on another pair, that's for sure.

assmaster420: What's BS is that you can't get lenses w/o that UV coating, at least from walmart

Patricia Gladwell Connelly: Yay, thank you so much. I hope you get revenue for this great posting. I just recently bought a new pair of glasses because of the antiglare issue. I knew there was something out there.

Larry Kapp: I had same kind of glasses and lenses for years and last year I got the anti glare coating - big mistake ! It started getting so cloudy from small scratches that it looked like I had an oil film on lenses. My old glasses never did that and I had to go back to wearing them. I am trying your method now - though since your bottle of glass cleaner said Isopropyl alcohol was the ingredient I am using that since I have some around. Hoping it works so I can use these glasses again !

Stacy White: that reflective coating is a pain in the butt all around...and we pay dearly for it too!...we're all crazy it seems...
