There are so many incredibly cool and fun frames out there that it’s easy to forget that lenses are why you wear glasses. That's why we offer you a complete line of the most advanced lenses available. Perhaps you've never thought about it, but eyeglass lenses can be made from a variety of materials. You might consider requesting a particular material for your next pair of eyeglasses.
Plastic is standard lenses made from a hard resin that can be ground into any prescription.
Much lighter and less breakable than glass lenses.
No built-in UV protection or scratch coat
High Index is an advanced material that provides significant advantages over traditional plastic or glass lenses.
Thinner, so you’ll have slimmer lenses and can choose from a wider choice of frames
Lighter, so your glasses weigh less and you’ll feel more comfortable
Flatter, so your lenses will bulge less from the frame (and if you are farsighted, your eyes will appear less magnified and more natural in size)
Polycarbonate lenses are ten times more impact resistant than conventional plastic or glass lenses. While impact-resistant does not mean shatterproof, polycarbonate lenses can give an extra level of protection to lens wearers who have active lives or participate in sports.
Polycarbonate is the material preferred for children and teenagers, as well as people who work
certain manufacturing occupations.
Thinner and lighter than conventional plastic or glass
Comes with built-in UV protection and scratch-resistant coating
UV radiation has been linked to the formation of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, which are the two leading causes of blindness and visual impairment among millions of Americans
All lenses should be UV protected
Since most damage occurs before the age of 30, consider UV protection and sunglasses for all kids and young adults
Anti-Reflective Coating increases light transmission through the lens, significantly reducing light reflections from the front of your lenses, and virtually eliminate the reflections from the back of your lenses. This has numerous advantages:
More light can reach your eyes, which increases contrast and clarity so you see better -
particularly in low-light situations like nighttime driving
Lenses appear almost invisible to people looking at you, making your eyes the focus of attention and not your glasses
Reduced reflections on lenses make a dramatic difference in photographs and on video
Reflections of your own eyes and eyelashes are virtually eliminated
Polarized Lenses work exceptionally well to filter out blinding reflected glare from shiny surfaces such as water, pavements, and dashboards. They improve contrast and visibility while reducing squinting and eyestrain
