We offer a variety of lens options to fit any patients needs. Below is a listing of our most frequently used lenses.
Polycarbonate lenses are the safest lens material available. It is lighter weight and thinner than plastic lenses. Typically these lenses are used for children under the age of 18 and adults who are active in sports, industrial settings, etc.
High Index lenses are also safer than plastic, but not as safe as polycarbonate. High Index lenses are thinner and lighter than plastic lenses. These lenses are typically used for patients with a higher prescription or who feel their glasses are currently too heavy.
Progressive lenses are no-line bifocals. The most common type of no-line bifocals used are Varilux Physio lenses. These come with a warranty for patient adaptation. We are able to use many types of progressive lenses based on a patient's needs.
Anti-Reflective coating helps to decrease glare. It designed to help with night-time driving (head lights having a large appearance, ghost images, etc.), extended computer use, and working underneath florescent lights by increasing the amount of light going into the eye. Crizal, Crizal Alize, and Crizal Avance are the most common types of anti-reflective coatings used and comes with a year warranty against scratches and peeling.
Transitions are where your lenses turn into sunglasses outside and turn nearly clear indoors. These lenses are great for people who spend a lot of time outside and do not want to have to switch between sunglasses and dress glasses.
Sunglass lenses are available and have a variety of options for a patient's needs. Polarized lenses are an option for patients who ski or do a lot of fishing. Mirror coating is available for light sensitive patient's who need the darkest sunglass lens available.
