I have some special 'coated' glasses. This coating is supposed
glare from computer screens etc. When white, or sunlight shines on them, they
reflect a greenish color (to the light). I think that the coating must absorb
several colors of white light, but why cannot I notice a difference? What
does the absorption spectrum look like for these coatings?
Usually glasses that reduce glare do so with polarizing filters.
Glare from terminal screens may be different, though. There are glare
reducing covers for most screens, but I am not sure how they work.
