Anti-glare is a feature added to glasses to help reduce the glare from television screens, computer monitors or through reflections on car windshields during while driving. Glare can disturb television viewing pleasure and cause headaches and a burning sensation in the eyes if experienced for prolonged periods. Anti-glare glasses can help reduce these reflective issues and enhance a person's clarity of vision as well as protect against UV rays on sunny days.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Arrange an appointment with an optician in your area. You should be able to find an optician by checking the telephone book. A qualified optician will have the required technology to add antiglare to your glasses.

  2. 2

    Ask your optician about the cost of adding the antiglare feature to your current glasses. Anti-glare is usually fitted when glasses lenses are originally made. Adding the feature at a later time may be more expensive.

  3. 3

    Speak to your optician about the likely time frame for having the antiglare feature added to your glasses. This could prove to be a deciding factor, if you need your glasses at all times.

  4. 4

    Collect your glasses once the antiglare has been added to your glasses. You will usually get a note or telephone call informing you that the work has been done.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't attempt to reduce the glare of your glasses by using chemicals on the lenses. Incorporating antiglare into glasses is a complex process that should only be undertaken by a qualified optician.
  • Only clean your glasses with the cleaning cloth provided by your optician. Cleaning them with a rougher materials can result in the antiglare being eroded away over time.
