Picnic on the Prairie and Anti-Reflective Lenses

If you’re unfamiliar with it, I suggest checking out Conner Prairie’s “Symphony on the Prairie” presented by Marsh and Clarian Health. I’ve gone several times this summer, but I must say; this past time was the most adventurous. It started pouring rain in the middle of our lovely picnic so my 2 friends and I piled underneath our giant rainbow umbrella as the weather forced our citronella candle to retire for the evening.  (I took this photo prior to the monsoon… it was only sprinkling at this point.)

Anyway, as we watched the orchestra play songs of composers from countries around the world, I noticed my eyes becoming very strained and tired. The stage was well lit, but everything around it was so dark that I found it rather difficult to sit and focus on the stage.

This is not uncommon! People come in to have an eye examination and complain about experiencing this same problem when driving at night or performing other tasks in the late evening. Lucky for you, I work in Indianapolis eye care, so I have the solution to this problem. 🙂

The reason my eyes were becoming strained was a result of the “halo” of glare created by the stage. This is exactly what happens with street lamps on the highway, headlights from other cars, or even the computer screen at work.

The solution is to have an Anti-Reflective coating on your eyeglass lenses. This coating ensures relief from tired eyes, relief from dangerous night time reflections, and relief from any glare causing situation that compromises comfort. The Anti-Reflective (AR) coating will ensure the clearest vision possible.

Any vision doctor will likely prescribe an AR coating as a standard to prevent discomfort from every day glare. Next time you go to purchase glasses and lenses ask about the AR coating options!

Or feel free to contact Dr. Tavel with any questions about our available AR options. www.drtavel.com/contact_us/
