Myth# 1 ) Cheaper the better ✘
Reality – If you type the search term “Anti Glare Glasses for Laptop” on Google, will see hundreds of cheap anti-glare glasses appearing through e-commerce websites. When we tested such glasses, we found that they are usually not only cheap by price but also by quality. The anti-glare coating applied to the lenses not only get damaged but sometimes create hindrance when you see the world. Such spurious anti-glare glasses do not follow any trusted manufacturing standard and can be bought for a mere amount of Rs 150 – Rs 900. Interestingly, most of them are sourced from China. In ophthalmic industry looking for a cheap option could turn out to be very expensive.
Myth# 2) Thin lenses are always better ✘
Reality -This is just an overhyped point. Yes, thin lenses have low weight and people find them more comfortable but a critical concern rises with the clarity. High index lenses are usually lighter in weight than normal but rank lower in terms of Abbe Value. This value is simply a measure of how much light is dispersed. Higher the Abbe Value, Higher the Clarity and Lower the Abbe Value, Lower the Clarity of the anti-glare lenses. One should try to stick to standard CR39 Lenses as much as possible as they provide excellent visual experience.
Myth# 3) Scratch proof glasses are better ✘
Reality – Can you name a single substance in the universe that is scratch proof? So there is nothing called as scratch proof. It is just a plain marketing phrase to loot the gullible uninformed people. You will agree that even the hardest material (diamond) on the earth is not safe from scratches. So don’t get carried away with this feature and take a decision just because a seller has said that the anti-glare glasses are scratch proof. They can’t be scratch proof but being impact resistant is possible.
Myth# 4) All anti-glare glasses are computer glasses ✘
Reality – This is a topic that we have explained in our earlier post as well. This is a common misconception that all anti-glare glasses can be used as computer glasses. Well, it takes special qualities to be termed as computer glasses. An ordinary pair of anti-glare glasses in India are usually general purpose products may not be able to block the high-intensity blue light of your computer/mobile screen. Typical computer glasses usually have amber lenses. You may want to read a detailed explanation here to know how to buy Computer Glasses in India.
Myth# 5) Can be cleaned with just any cleaning solution ✘
Reality – Most of the anti-glare glasses users are tend to clean the dust on the lenses by just any cloth or sometimes with their own shirt-tail. This is a completely wrong way to clean the lens of anti-glare glasses as it may damage the thin coating and round scratches are tend to appear over a period of time. Worst happens when people clean the lenses with ammonia-based liquid solutions. Ammonia can remove the anti-glare coating from the lenses. If you do not have any lens cleaning solution then just use plain water and NEVER WIPE THEM DRY.
