If you are using binoculars over snow or ice fields, are there any considerations or equipment prep that should be done for the eyes/binoculars to avoid XS glare? 

 

Zeiss 8X30 Olive (Safari) used to have a special coating for views over ice fields.  Does Zeiss or anyone else still put special anti-glare coatings on their binos?

Steiner has an antiglare coating on some of its binoculars.  Generally, Marine binoculars will address this.  Unfortunately, it is rare to have a high-end binocular for marine applications.  Your best bet may be in finding a quality binocular with an option of attaching polarizing filters.
