Glare glass on picture frames

I have a few prints framed by a local framer. He did not use non-glare glass. I recently read that there is a treatment for this glass to reduce the glare. Is that accurate? If so, any suggestions?

Thumbs down i'd leave it alone

i don't know about any treatments to reduce the glare, but i'd advise you to stick with the regular, clear glass. i think (just my opinion) the non-glare glass looks cheap & plastic-y & distorts the view of the piece of art. are you sure you want to mess with it?

There are different qualities of non-glare glass made by Tru-Vue.
Single & double sided etch. The single sided gives you better clarity.

Conservation Reflection Control - also blocks 97% of damaaging ultraviolet light.

AR Reflection Free - Almost disappears. Anti -reflection properties without distortion.
