What are my options for lenses?

There are many eyeglass lens options available. Your eye care provider will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses for your eyes.

Here are some of the most common eyeglass lens types:

  • Transition (Photochromic) lenses – These lenses are “comfort lenses”, automatically adjusting to the level of surrounding light while also offering blue light protection.  Transition lenses are available in traditional grey, brown and graphite green as well as colors – sapphire, amethyst, amber and emerald!  Each generation of Transition lenses have decreased the time it takes to darken outside and lighten inside.  Another option in Transition is the Xtra-Active lens which enables the lenses to darken in the car.

    UV treated lenses – Lens treatment applied to absorb the harmful portion of UV light found in daylight.  This treatment will help reduce the risk of developing cataracts as you age.  UV treatment is clear in appearance.

    Thinner lenses – There are several lens material options for your eyewear.  Our opticians will recommend the best option for your prescription, lens requirements and frame.  These options include Polycarbonate, Trivex and Hi-Index lenses.

    Anti-glare lenses – Enhance your visual experience with Crizal anti-glare lenses. These lenses will reduce reflections on your lenses giving you a clearer view through your prescription. Crizal lenses have UV protection and are scratch-resistant.

    Polarized lenses – The best lens for sunglasses, polarized lenses reduce reflected glare on objects around you (ie cars or water). Tests have shown that polarized lenses will enable the driver to see taillight ~20 feet sooner than they would be able to see without polarized lenses.  We’d be happy to show you the difference between tinted lenses and polarized lenses at your appointment!

    Progressive lenses – A traditional progressive lens is a multi-focal lens that starts with your distance prescription in the top of the lens and gradually changes to your intermediary and then reading prescription.  If you are using a computer for extended periods of time, you may want to look into a computer pair of progressive lenses which would start with the intermediate prescription in the top gradually changing to your reading prescription.  This task specific lens can help you hone in on the work at hand, reduce neck strain, and give you more vision throughout the lens for your computer and close work.
