Lenses

Progressive Addition Lens (PAL)

A progressive lens, or multifocal lens, are corrective lenses with three unique prescriptions that allow you to work up close (reading), work at arm’s length (on a computer) and view at a distance (driving) without switching between three different pairs of glasses. Progressive lenses have smooth transitions between prescriptions with virtually little to no distortions, improving visual comfort to everyday life.


Anti-Reflectant Non-Glare Treatment

Anti-reflectant non-glare treatment is applied to the surface of a lens to help reduce glare from reflected light. The treatment virtually eliminates reflections from the front and back surfaces of your lenses and allows you to see better. Modern anti-reflectant treatments also provide maximum protection against daily wear and tear increasing the life of your lenses.

Transitions

Transitions, also known as photochromic lenses, are optical lenses that darken when exposed to high frequency of sunlight (UV light). In the absence of activating light, the lenses return to clear. The treatment reduces exposure to harmful UV rays. Transitions come in an array of colors, most commonly used are brown and grey, we have a fun color palette for those with a little more spunk including rose, pink, purple, green, and more.

Office lenses

We can help protect against digital eye strain, fatigue, and headaches caused by computer and new digital devices. Our office lenses focus more in areas you use most. We create lenses for all aspects of life. Much like a progressive lens, these lenses are multifocal but focusing more so on the one area used most.

Anti-Fatigue lenses

Our anti-fatigue lenses incorporate a slight boost of power toward the bottom to help relieve eye strain and headaches. This relaxes the eye muscles reducing eye fatigue. Students of all ages including children who spend a lot of time on digital devices can benefit from anti-fatigue prescriptions.

Polarization

Polarized lenses prevent reflected glare from surfaces such as roads and water from interfering with your vision. Patients who drive during daylight hours benefit from polarized lenses.

Scratch Protection

Fine optical surfaces on prescription lenses can sustain abrasions during life uses. Our scratch treatments can prolong quality life of your lenses.

Materials

CR-39 Plastic is the most commonly used lens material because its lightweight and more durable than glass, has excellent optical qualities, and low cost.

Polycarbonate is lighter and significantly more impact resistant making it perfect for children, sportswear, and safety glasses.

Trivex is much like polycarbonate lenses with its impact-resistance and lighter weight, trivex is also a thinner material making it ideal with people who have higher prescriptions.

Hi-Index lenses are recommended for high prescriptions. Index ranges from 1.60 to 1.74 with the higher index providing for thinner, lighter, and better appearance of your eyewear.

Glass was the first material used for making ophthalmic lenses. Due to heavy weight, unsafe breakage, and manufacturing cost, glass is now rarely used over better choices.
