Lens Features and Design

Single Vision
this all-purpose lens is available in all materials and provides vision correction for one viewing area. The corrected area can be for far distance or near distance.

will be recommended when you require correction for both distance and near viewing areas in one single pair of glasses. Available as no-line progressives, bifocals and trifocals.

No-Line Progressives
designed to allow you to see at distance (driving a vehicle), intermediate (looking at the dashboard), and near (reading a map) with no lines or sections. The absence of bifocal lines makes this lens the most desirable cosmetically. You will also enjoy continuous vision from far to near with this lens design.

provide both far and near correction in one lens. A visible line divides the two areas providing a visible segment for near viewing.

are a variation of the bifocals. This double-line lens provides you with correction in three areas - distance, intermediate, and near.

Specialty Lenses - for work and play

Industrial/Occupational Lenses
special occupational designs allow us to customize lenses for almost any occupation, hobby, visual, or safety requirement. Your lifestyle information will help us understand how you use your eyes and identify visual needs.

Computer Lenses
if you work at a computer at least two hours per day, you may need a computer lens. These lenses are custom designed to provide the best vision for you while working at the computer. The lenses combine a variety of features including anti-reflective coatings and special filters.

Sports Lenses
improve safety and performance and enhance your enjoyment. Sports lenses come in a variety of colors, designs and treatments. Impact resistance and light weight are key considerations.

Lens Treatments - features you should consider

UV Protection
the sun's ultraviolet rays pose potential harm to your eyes. We recommend UV protection on all our lenses. UV filters for your lenses accomplish the same thing as sunscreen does for your skin - shield your eyes from harmful UV rays. A 'must-have' for adults and children to promote healthy vision.

Scratch Resistant Coating
is highly recommended to protect your lenses from everyday wear-and-tear. Protecting your lens surface prolongs the usefulness of your lenses and protects your investment in good vision.

is a special coating that reduces distracting reflections. The results are: more transmitted light, better quality of vision, improved night vision, and reduced eye fatigue. Great for working on a computer and driving at night, these lenses also offer a cosmetically appealing "invisible lens look" that makes the lens "disappear" and shows your eyes more clearly.

Adjustable Tint Lenses
that darken in the sunlight and lighten indoors. Improved technology provides you with a lens that is virtually clear indoors and as dark as sunglasses outdoors and protects you from harmful UV. Available in almost all materials and designs; ask our dispenser for a demonstration of this technology.

Sun Lenses

Polarized Lenses
are the best option for eliminating glare. Hunters, boaters, fishermen, golfers, and drivers are just a few who can benefit from polarized lens' glare blocking properties. Any surface can create glare in sunlight, especially water, snow, sand, windows, vehicles, and buildings. Polarization eases eye strain and fatigue in bright sunlight. Available in different colors, materials, and designs.

Tinted Lenses
tints for sun lenses are usually medium to dark shades. They can be solid or gradient. Almost any color available.
