rimless frames, polished edges, AR coating, & washers

    I just got a pair of rimless eyeglasses. I'm finally starting to "tune
    out" the screws that are attached to the bridge, and I am enjoying the
    light weight of the glasses. However, I have a couple of questions.

    Because the frames are rimless, the edges of the lenses are polished.
    I got an AR coating with the lenses, but the coating apparently is
    *not* applied to the edges because I can see the glare on the edges.
    Is this normal or should the AR coating also have been applied to the
    edges?

    There are plastic (or maybe teflon) washers (don't know what to call
    them) around the screws on the front of the lenses. They are white and
    opaque. I think they are highly visible, but perhaps I am just
    focusing on them when I look at myself in the mirror. I don't remember
    seeing these on the demo frames, but the store when I bought the
    glasses isn't near my home and I haven't been there since getting the
    glasses to check out the demos. I looked at some similar styles at a
    store near me and they have clear washers that better blend in with
    the lenses. Should I complain about the white washers?

    I love the rimless look, but didn't realize that rimless glasses would
    take some getting used to.
