AR coating for $100? That's... insane. AR coating is VERY cheap to do, and do well too. Some people will try to justify it by saying "oh the coating will peel off for low quality stuff" which is true, but high quality coating also peels off or chips at the same rate. JMM stock lenses come with AR coating and they suck. They're easily damaged. I know people who just straight up remove the coating when they get new lenses.Do you all have any advice regarding anti-reflective coating on the back of sunglass lenses? I always take AR coating on my opticals, but I’ve had mixed feedback from people (including opticians) regarding whether it’s worth the upcharge on sunglasses. Not sure whether it’s worth the extra $100 in this instance.
I would not do $100 for AR coating. I personally also don't notice too much of a difference with AR coating regardless, it's only helpful in some very specific circumstances but overall it's mostly for the cool color reflection you get when you look at the glasses in different light.
