What are my options for lenses?
There are many eyeglass lens options available. Your eye care provider and optician will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses.
Here are some of the most common eyeglass lens types:
- Photochromic lenses – These lenses are made of dynamic materials that automatically adjust to the level of light in your surroundings. They can instantly turn your regular eyewear into a stylish pair of sunglasses! They can also be helpful for those who suffer with photophobia, or light sensitivity. Transitions™ lenses are the most popular brand of photochromic lenses and samples are available for viewing at our office.
- Tinted lenses –Tinted lenses are lenses with a pigmented dye in them. There are a variety of tint colors available, with the most common typically being gray or brown. The color doesn’t have an effect on how much protection you’re getting, but is more based on personal preference or on the wearer’s hobbies.When considering the density of the tint however, it does affect the protection you’ll get from your sunglasses. Tinted lenses can be made lighter or darker according to an individual’s preference. Lighter densities will not offer as much protection as darker densities. A density of at least 75% is recommended for outdoor use and maximum sun protection.
- Polarized lenses – Polarized lenses have a special filter that only allows vertical light through the lens, which ultimately works to reduce horizontal reflections. A good analogy would be to compare them to window blinds. We’ve all seen how light passes through blinds when the slats are closed. The blinds allow some of the vertical light to come through, but eliminates the horizontal light, or glare. We can still see outside because we’re looking over the slats; which is similar to the polarized technology. The process in eliminating the reflective glare can help reduce eye strain and fatigue while improving color saturation and increasing contrast. Similar to tinted lenses, there are two main colors used in polarized lenses, gray or brown.
- Scratch-resistant coating – A transparent coating that helps protect your lenses from those annoying scratches. All of our lenses come with a scratch resistant coating and a 1 year, 2 time warranty for scratches!
- UV coating – UV coating aids in protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. This coating comes standard on all our our lenses.
- Anti-reflective coating – Anti-reflective, or anti-glare, coated lenses are dipped in a special material to eliminate reflections on the front and back surfaces of the lenses. This not only aids to improve the quality of your vision (especially when driving at night time or staring at a computer screen), but also makes your eyeglasses more visually attractive. We offer the well known Essilor Crizal® family of products.
- Polycarbonate lenses – Polycarbonate lenses make your eyeglasses weigh significantly less than glass lenses and are also impact resistant. Standard plastic and glass lens options are not commonly utilized anymore as they do not offer the same amount of eye protection as polycarbonate material.
- Thin & Lite lenses – High index lenses greatly reduce the thickness of the lenses so that the eyeglass profile is both thinner and lighter. There are multiples levels of ‘Thin & Lite’ lenses available and recommendations can be made based on the severity of your prescription. If you are someone who just dislikes the feeling of heavy eyewear on their nose, this lightweight alternative might be right for you!
- Progressive lenses – Starting around age 40, your eyes gradually lose the ability to focus on nearby objects or you might have difficulty reading in dim light. This common eye condition is called presbyopia, and is a natural part of aging that will eventually affect you no matter how good your vision was when you were younger. Progressive lenses have multiple prescriptions in one pair of glasses. That allows you to do close-up work (like reading a book), middle-distance work (like checking out a website on a computer), and distance viewing (like driving) without needing to change your glasses. These are sometimes called multifocal lenses or more commonly no-line bifocals.
