Types of Eyeglass Lenses
We are seeing rapid advancements in ophthalmic lens technology, which means better vision, comfort, convenience and protection for you. Here is a simple way to understand your eyeglass lenses:
Your lenses will either be single vision (one prescription only) or multifocal (bifocals, trifocals and progressive lenses). Progressive (no line) lenses offer a gradually changing prescription so vision is clear at all distances.
Eyeglass lenses used to be made of glass, and while that is still available, new age plastics have much more to offer. New plastic lens materials today are extremely scratch resistant and they are thinner, safer and lighter weight than glass. Lens materials include CR-39 plastic, high index plastic, polycarbonate and new hybrid materials like Trivex. The best lens material for you is based in part on your prescription.
There are many surface treatments available that can make your glasses the best ever. Antireflective lenses are a very popular choice because they make you see better and look better by reducing glare, and AR is now better than ever! Many other options are available such as UV protection, anti-scratch coatings and polished lens edges.
We offer many different tint options in lenses from your traditional grays and browns to reds and purples. Another exciting tint options is Transitions®, which is the lens that darkens and lightens based on available sunlight. This product is now in its seventh generation of technology and it is truly remarkable because it offers visual comfort, convenience of not having to switch glasses and protection of your eyes against UV rays.
A third option, Polarized Lenses, addresses both brightness and glare by filtering out light that is reflected off of flat surfaces like water or blacktop. These lenses are a favorite of watersport enthusiasts and snow skiers alike.
Your children deserve to look good too. That’s why many of our popular styles of eyeglasses are available in children’s frames. Good looks in a pint size package!
