A glossy screen is a flat shiny surface that provides the user great picture quality as well as the highest levels of contrast. It produces vibrant colours, and makes the display more crisp and bright.
However, an individual can find it difficult to focus on a glossy screen for a long time. Such screens can make viewing tiresome, and can have a negative effect on the eyesight.

A polarized coating in the Matte screen cuts down on glare. Since these screens reduce sharpness, they are also termed as ‘anti-glare’ screens.
Even the bright colours may look dull on a matte screen, and this is perhaps the only disadvantage it has. The image may look unclear on a matte screen, but it is not dangerous for the eyesight.
