Lens Technology

Our opticians can customize your lenses using combinations of the technologies highlighted below to offer you exceptional vision that is custom tailored to you.

Types of lenses

Single Vision
These lenses are meant for individuals requiring correction at one focal distance, like near, far, or intermediate.

Bifocal, Trifocal, Progressive
Lenses in this category are meant for individuals that have trouble seeing in the distance AND up close. Bifocals offer two distinct points of focus, trifocals three, and progressive like Varilux offer a fluid range of vision.

Material

Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate is a material that exhibits excellent shock resistance. Very light and very thin, it also blocks UVA and UVB rays.

High Index
By increasing the refractive index of the lens material, relative prescription strength can be achieved in a thinner profile lens, offering less distortion and a more attractive pair of glasses.

Plastic
Light weight materials like plastic offer comfort over materials like glass, due primarily to the weight savings. Coupled with a coating like Crizal to prevent scratching, plastic can offer distinct advantages over glass lenses.

Glass
A traditional lens material, glass offers superior scratch resistance and high quality vision.

Treatments

Scratch Resistance
The market benchmark for lens treatments, Crizal offers a three-in-one system combines smudge-proofing,scratch-proofing, and antireflective
treatment.

Anti-reflective
The market benchmark for lens treatments, Crizal offers a three-in-one system combines smudge-proofing,scratch-proofing, and antireflective
treatment.

Polarized Lenses
Polarized lenses incorporate a filter that removes glare and dazzle caused by light reflections on flat surfaces (water, roads, snow).

UV
Virtually all lenses sold today block UVA and UVB, which are light rays from the ultraviolet spectrum that are potentially harmful to the eye.

Transitions Photochromatic Lenses
This lens adjusts to the intensity of light by darkening outdoors and lightening indoors. The fourth-generation Transitions®, introduced in 2002, features a higher activation rate of up to 70% in 30 seconds.
