Lens Materials

  • CR-39:

    • Basic plastic provides a thick lens with good optical properties but limited impact resistance. We do not recommend this material for safety reasons.

  • Polycarbonate:

    • Thinner and lighter but with poorer clarity than CR-39. Superior impact resistance makes this a great choice for safety eyewear.

  • Trivex:

    • Light weight with superior impact resistance properties and better optical qualities than poly. This is the lens of choice within our optical for daily wear lenses.

  • High Index:

    • Thinner and lighter materials that allow us to thin out higher prescriptions. Recommended for higher prescription to give lenses a more appealing look and increase comfort by decreasing lens weight.

 

Lens Designs

  • Single Vision:

    • Standard lenses for the correction of myopia, hypermetropia, and presbyopia.

  • Anti-Fatigue:

    • Single vision lenses with aspheric designs which allow the eyes to relax when doing long periods of near work leading to less eye strain. Many have blue light protection properties included in the design. 

  • Bifocal:

    • Lens designs with two fixed focal lengths, often used for seeing distance and near. This lens does not account for the mid-length viewing such as computers.

  • Progressive:

    • Lenses which progressively change from distance to near as you look from the top to the bottom of the lens. These allow the greatest visual freedom and provide you vision at all distances. 

 

Lens Treatments

  • Anti-Reflective or Anti-Glare:

    • Multilayer treatment protecting against glare, scratches, and smudges.  Anti-Reflective makes your eyes more visible to others while stopping unwanted reflections so you have clearest image out of your eye wear. Most come with 1-2 year no questions asked scratch warranties and protect against harmful UV rays. PLEASE, never buy glasses without a high quality anti-reflective property.

  • Polarization:

    • Limits the angle of reflections able to pass through your lenses, reducing glare, and making your eyes more comfortable during activities. Great for fishing, golfing, or any other outdoor activity requiring crisp, clear vision.

  • Transitions:

    • This technology darkens when exposed to UV light. Great for those who frequently go from indoors to outdoors and do not want to carry a second pair of sunglasses. One of the added benefits of the Transition products is the increased UV & blue light protection that is a built in to the lens technology. Transition 8 was just released to the market as well as mirror flash coatings so there are endless options to make your eye wear unique while protecting your eyes to the fullest.
