There are so many incredibly cool and fun frames out there that it’s easy to forget that lenses are why you wear glasses. That's why we offer you a complete line of the most advanced lenses available. Perhaps you've never thought about it, but eyeglass lenses can be made from a variety of materials. You might consider requesting a particular material for your next pair of eyeglasses.
Plastic are standard lenses made from a hard resin that can be ground into any prescription.
- Much lighter and less breakable than glass lenses.
- No built-in UV protection or scratch coat
High Index is an advanced material that provides significant advantages over traditional plastic or glass lenses.
- Thinner, so you’ll have slimmer lenses and can choose from a wider choice of frames
- Lighter, so your glasses weigh less and you’ll feel more comfortable
- Flatter, so your lenses will bulge less from the frame (and if you are farsighted, your eyes will appear less magnified and more natural in size)
Polycarbonate lenses are ten times more impact resistant than conventional plastic or glass lenses. While impact resistant does not mean shatterproof, polycarbonate lenses can give an extra level of protection to lens wearers who have active lives or participate in sports.
- Polycarbonate is the material preferred for children and teenagers, as well as people who work
certain manufacturing occupations.
- Thinner and lighter than conventional plastic or glass
- Comes with built-in UV protection and scratch resistant coating
- UV radiation has been linked to formation of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, which are the two leading causes of blindness and visual impairment among millions of Americans
- All lenses should be UV protected
- Since most damage occurs before the age of 30, consider UV protection and sunglasses for all kids and young adults
Anti-Reflective Coating increases light transmission through the lens, significantly reducing light reflections from the front of your lenses, and virtually eliminate the reflections from the back of your lenses. This has numerous advantages:
- More light can reach your eyes, which increases contrast and clarity so you see better -
particularly in low-light situations like night time driving
- Lenses appear almost invisible to people looking at you, making your eyes the focus of attention and not your glasses
- Reduced reflections on lenses make a dramatic difference in photographs and on video
- Reflections of your own eyes and eyelashes are virtually eliminated
- Polarized Lenses work exceptionally well to filter out blinding reflected glare from shiny surfaces such as water, pavements, and dashboards. They improve contrast and visibility while reducing squinting and eyestrain
