PlasticThis is the most common material because it is half the weight of glass and much more impact resistant.
PolycarbonatePolycarbonate is the lightest and most impact resistant material. These lenses also include 100% UV protection.
Hi-indexThis is a thinner material in varying indices. Hi-index lenses also provide 100% UV protection.
Single VisionCorrects one field of vision (distance or near).
BifocalCorrects two fields of vision (distance and near), with a line separating each field. Bifocal lines are unsightly and create a disturbing jump in your vision when you move from close-up to distance vision
TrifocalCorrects three fields of vision (distance, intermediate, and near), with a line separating each field. Trifocals have the same drawbacks as bifocals plus the addition of another line on your lenses.
Progressive (multifocal)Corrects all fields of vision and are designed to deliver maximum performance while providing the most natural vision. This is accomplished by smooth, uninterrupted transition from one viewing distance to another, so you’ll always experience the clearest close-up, intermediate, and distance vision without unsightly lines.
- Scratch-resistant (reduce those caused by everyday wear).
- Extends the life of your lenses
- Eye protection from blue light that computers emit
Anti-reflective lenses let more light through to your eye which enables you to see better. This is very important because as we age, we need more light to see properly.
Anti-reflective lenses virtually eliminate annoying glare and reflections caused by neon lights, computer screens, and vehicle headlights.
Anti-reflective lenses improve vision and reduce eyestrain by reducing glare and reflections.
Anti-reflective lenses appear almost invisible which makes your eyes the focus of attention, not your lenses.
Add a light tint to your lenses to reduce glare and eyestrain.
Or choose a dark tint and make your lenses into sunglasses (ensure you add a UV400 coating).
Have a built-in adjustable tint that adjusts to the light you are in. These lenses darken in outdoor light and quickly become virtually clear indoors.
Protects your eyes from harmful UV rays which have been linked to cataracts and other eye damage.
