Is anti-glare and anti-scratch coating worth it to you on eyeglasses?

I've been wearing glasses since 4th grade, but this latest set of lenses, for which I opted to get what must have been the most basic offering available, frequently drives me nuts.
I'm probably a year or so into owning these, and they've scratched to hell. That's fine, so have most pairs I've ever had.
What I've noticed is especially bad about these is the glare is obscene. I notice it especially at arena events, but just in general, it's bad news.
The question I'm asking is: what combination of anti-glare/UV/anti-scratch/polycarbonate or whatnot have you found to be the best for your money? Is it worth it to automatically upgrade to their best lens package?
Moreover, is there anywhere great for buying your favorite type of lens online, so that I can pop these out, for a decent price? I have a dual (though uneven) astigmatism, but I doubt that matters much.
