Lenses 101: Understanding Your Options
With so many eyeglass lens options available, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for you! That’s why our optical staff will work closely with you to take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into account when helping you choose the perfect lenses for your eyes. Whether you need lenses for reading, distance, or both, our team is here to guide you through the process and help you find the lenses that will work best for your unique needs.
If you wear glasses, you know that lenses are the most important part of your eyewear. But with so many lens material and coating options available, it can be challenging to understand all your options. Read below to learn about some common and popular options!
- Transition lenses are a convenient and popular option for eyeglass wearers who spend time outdoors. These lenses contain dynamic materials that automatically adjust to the level of surrounding light. When you step outside on a bright day, the lenses darken to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. As you move back indoors or into a dimly lit environment, the lenses lighten up again to provide clear vision.
- Tinted sunglass lenses are a stylish alternative to traditional prescription sunglasses. These lenses look like sunglasses and provide full UV protection, but they technically aren’t true sunglasses. If you don’t want to carry a separate pair of sunglasses but still want to protect your eyes from the sun, tinted sunglass lenses are a great option. You can choose from a range of tints and colors to match your personal style.
- Thinner lenses include materials such as polycarbonate, Trivex, and Hi-index lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight and shatter-resistant, making them a great choice for children or active individuals. Trivex lenses offer similar benefits as polycarbonate lenses but have better optical clarity. Hi-Index lenses are the thinnest lenses available; great for high prescriptions or those who want the least obtrusive lenses possible.
- Anti-glare coating is a smart choice for anyone who wants to reduce eye strain and improve their vision. This coating is a special material that makes them less reflective than regular eyeglass lenses. As a result, less light is lost, and you’ll enjoy clearer vision in a wider range of lighting conditions and especially at night. Whether you’re reading, driving, or spending time on your computer, anti-glare lenses can help you see more clearly and comfortably.
- UV-coated lenses are a simple but effective solution for protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. The coating is transparent and doesn’t change the appearance of your lenses. This coating is a must have for protecting your macula and retina. Whether you’re running errands or spending a day at the beach, UV-coated lenses are a smart choice for maintaining healthy vision.
- Scratch-resistant coating is a must-have feature for anyone who wears glasses, but it’s especially important for children’s eyeglasses. This transparent coating helps protect glass lenses from scratches, which can compromise the quality of your vision. With scratch-resistant coating, your lenses will stay clearer for longer, and you won’t have to worry about replacing your glasses as often. In addition, we can often combine the scratch-resistant coating and the anti-reflective in one coating.
