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 lenses – Light-responsive lenses begin to darken when exposed to UV rays (in both direct and indirect light)—then fade back to clear indoors. The level of darkness and speed of transition depends on the level of UV exposure and temperature. These lenses are great comfort lens but do not replace sunglasses.
- UV-coated lenses – A beneficial lens treatment that blocks ultraviolet (UV) light. Just as sunscreen keeps the sun’s UV rays from harming your skin, UV-protective treatments for eyeglass lenses block those same rays from damaging your eyes. UV-coating can be applied to regular eyeglasses unless the lens is made with polycarbonate or high index which already includes the protection. UV-coated lenses look like any other lens – the coating is transparent.
- Polarized sunglass lenses – A good pair of sunglasses is essential to your health; they filter out harmful ultraviolet rays. Excessive and ongoing exposure to UV light is linked to diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. All sunglasses are formulated to protect against UV rays and to minimize glare, but polarized lenses have been made with a special process to filter out intense glare. This formulation acts almost like a blind or curtain, allowing only some light to pass through.
- Scratch-resistant coating – A transparent coating that helps protect glass lenses from those annoying scratches. All of our lenses include a scratch-resistant coating. Keep in mind that even the best scratch-resistant coating can’t completely protect your lenses from wear and tear. To keep your glasses looking new, store them in a cushioned case when not in use, and clean your lenses with a microfiber cloth and the cleaning solution your optician recommends.
- Thinner lenses – We have several options to reduce the thickness of the lenses so that the eyeglass profile is more attractive. Polycarbonate, Trivex and High Index are all options that your eyecare specialist can discuss with you and advise you which would be best for your prescription. If you are a person who dislikes feeling the weight of eyeglasses on your nose, these lightweight alternative might be right for you.
- Anti-glare lenses – Anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating or anti-glare coating) is a microscopically thin multi-layer coating that eliminates reflections from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses. By doing so, AR coating makes your lenses nearly invisible so people can focus on your eyes, not distracting reflections from your eyeglasses. Anti-reflective coating also eliminates glare caused by light reflecting from your lenses. With reflections eliminated, lenses with AR coating provide better vision for night driving and more comfortable vision for reading and computer use.
