Choosing the right lens depends on your prescription, personal preference, and lifestyle. Whether your prescription specifies Single Vision, Bifocals, Trifocals, or No-line Bifocals, our Eyewear Specialists are trained to provide you with lens options that best meet your visual needs as well as your personal preferences.



Lens Types

Single Vision - Single vision lenses offer correction for people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or need help with reading.

Bifocal, Trifocal, Multifocal Progressive - A multifocal lens combines two or more focal points into one lens.  This allows a person to view objects near, far and in between all in one lens.  Multifocal lenses are available in bifocals, trifocals and no-line progressive bifocals.  No-line bifocal or progressive lenses offer all the benefits of a multifocal lens without the visibility of lines on the lens. 



Lens Materials

Polycarbonate - Durable, scratch resistant and shatter resistant lenses are a standard choice for sports, children’s and safety glasses.

CR-39 Plastic - Standard plastic lenses offer sharp optics for basic prescriptions at an opening price point.

Trivex - Superior optics in a super lightweight lens, these slim high definition lenses are a great choice for higher prescriptions and those seeking premium quality vision.

Hi-Index - Super lightweight and ultrathin, these lenses are a good option for higher prescriptions.



Treatments and Speciality Lenses

Scratch Resistant Coating - Most eyeglass lenses today include a scratch resistant coating to help protect against damage. The hard coating or scratch coating is great for children and is standard on polycarbonate lenses.

Mirror Coatings - Highly reflective reflex mirror coatings prevent the eyes of the wearer from being seen by others and are a great way to add some flavor to a pair of prescription sunglasses.

Ultraviolet Treatment - The application of an ultraviolet treatment helps protect the eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. This treatment is simple and quick to apply to most plastic eyeglass lenses without affecting the appearance. Several lens materials such as polycarbonate, hi-index and trivex do not require an additional UV treatment due to the inherent property of the lens material.

Anti-reflective lenses - Anti-reflective lenses offer reduced internal and external reflections, creating a better cosmetic appearance.

HD Digital Progressive lenses - While traditional progressives are produced using 'pre-molded' designs, where the same design is used for every application, the new, Digital HD progressives are fully customized.  In essence, your specific applications (Rx, frame type, lens material, use, etc) are taken into account to produce a lens with wider fields of view and smoother vision


Digital Surfacing - Our new digital surfacing can be done to any type of lens.  This offers a more precise and detailed prescription for your lenses.

Polarized lenses - Wearing polarized prescription lenses outdoors can help protect our eyes and the sensitive skin around them for healthy sight throughout our lives.  These lenses are designed to block harmful UV light and filter out the blue light spectrum allowing colors to remain clear and true, so stoplights and other important visual information won’t be hard to see.

Transitions lenses - Transitions lenses adapt from clear indoors to fully dark in bright sun, offering a distinct advantage over ordinary clear lenses. But Transitions lenses aren't just about clear and dark, they continuously adapt to changing light so they're always exactly the shade you need them to be.
