Once you choose a pair of eyeglass frames, you must also consider the type of lens that will go into those new frames. You will want to consider both the type of lens and the lens material. These options can sometimes be overwhelming, that is why it is helpful to consult with one of our licensed opticians who can examine your prescription, discuss your lifestyle and consult with you about your choices.
Type of Lens
Below are some of the common lens types we provide in eyeglass frames.
Bi-focal Lens –these are designed to correct both farsightedness and nearsightedness with two different segments of the lens divided by a visible, horizonal line. The top section is for seeing objects in the distance, while the bottom section is seeing objects up close.
Single Vision Lens – these are designed to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism with a single optical prescription to focus evenly on the entire surface area of the lens.
Progressive Lenses – like a bifocal lens, these are designed to correct both farsightedness and nearsightedness, but without a visual line to provide a seamless appearance in the lens.
No-Glare Lenses – also referred to as an anti-reflective (AR) lens, are this lenses with UV protection designed to reduce glare and allow 99% of light to reach the eye to provide increased visibility.
Scratch Resistant Lenses – these are designed to protect your lenses from scratches, smudges, dust and other harm due to daily wear and tear.
Transitions® Lenses – these are designed to automatically adapt to changing light to darken when outdoors and return to clear when indoors, reducing the need for additional sunglasses.
Polarized Lenses – these are designed to block vertically-aligned light waves, like those bouncing off water while boating or a car windshield while driving.
Blue-Light Protection Glasses – these are designed to block the harmful UV rays that are emitted from digital devices, such as computers, tablets and mobile phones.
