Lens Types

Single vision lenses are for correcting only one distance: nearsightedness, intermediate or farsightedness.

Straight top bifocal lenses are for people who are both nearsighted and farsighted.

Straight top trifocal lenses correct for near, intermediate and long-distance views.

Progressive lenses correct near, intermediate and long-distance vision issues like trifocals do, but they appear seamless and the fields of view change gradually from one to the next. This helps your eyes adjust more comfortably as they scan near and far.

Seeing through HD lenses is like watching life in high-definition. Everything appears crisper and clearer.

Lens Treatments

Protection from UV rays is just important for your eyes as it is for your skin. Our UV-resistant treatments can help your eyes stay healthy and protected from the sun’s damaging rays.

Get more life out of your lenses and keep your view clear with a coating that helps shield them from scratches and scuffs. This is especially helpful if you lead an active lifestyle.

Our AR coating blocks out glare and improves the clarity of your view. We recommend these for heavy computer users and those who have issues with headlights during nighttime driving.

Self-tinting treatments are the easy way to have your prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses in one! Clear in regular light and tinted in bright light, they’re available with a variety of colors!

If your eyes are sensitive to the sun’s glare, a mirrored coating might be for you. These are also available in a variety of colors and can lend a stylish look to your prescription sunwear!

Polarized lenses are popular for sunglasses and driving glasses. They help eliminate reflections from the sun, provide 100% UV protection and still let vibrant colors show through!

Lens Materials

The most common and cost-effective lens material, plastic gives you a light, comfortable feel; however, plastic lenses are prone to scratch, so we recommend adding a scratch-resistant coating.

Polycarbonate is a very durable, scratch-resistant material. Polycarbonate lenses are shatter-resistant and pre-treated with UV protection. They’re well suited for children, teens and very active adults.

Thin, light, durable and extremely comfortable, high index plastic lenses give you the best of all worlds.
