Moth-Eye filter is special anti-reflective or anti-reflection (AR) coating film applied on TV screens. What is special about this coating is that it was inspired by the eyes of the Moth which has a unique eye surface covered by a film on which is a very thin bee hive shaped hexagonal pattern which cuts out reflections from its eyes. This has dual benefit for the Moth, it prevents reflections off its eyes and thus protects it from its enemies by not betraying its location by reflections of light on its eyes.
