The coatings on eyeglasses protect your eyes from the sun's damaging rays. There are also antiglare coatings that make it easier for you to see in bright sunlight. However, with wear and tear, the coating can begin to peel off, giving the glasses a strange appearance. If you would like to have a new coating put on your eyeglasses, you first need to remove the old one, which is an easy task to do.
