An anti-reflective coating on lenses reduces glare the patient sees and reflections others see making the lenses seem “invisible”. It reduces halos and ghost images, especially while driving at nighttime. People that benefit from this feature are computer users, patients with very high prescriptions where the lenses have more glare, seniors, patients that do public speaking, and anyone who desires a better cosmetic appearance.
This lens material is lighter and thinner than traditional plastic lenses. Patients with medium to high-powered prescriptions will prefer these lenses so that their glasses are more attractive and comfortable.
Photochromic lenses block UV-rays and automatically darken when exposed to UV (or sun) light. This is a great option for patients, adults or children, who only want one pair of glasses for both indoors and outdoors. . Photochromic lenses are recommended for those with light sensitivity and those who enjoy outdoor activities. Since car windows block most UV rays, these lenses will not darken as much as sunglasses inside a car.
The benefits of polarized lenses are that it eliminates all types of glare, enhances contrast, and provides maximum UV protection. This is different than tinted lenses which only darkens the lens. People who do a lot of driving in the sun, outdoor activities such as boating, fishing or golfing, will see how the polarization enhances their sunglasses.
This type of lens material is very impact-resistant, scratch-resistant, and thin and light compared to standard plastic lenses. It is always recommended for children under age 18, sport enthusiasts and safety.
Progressive lenses are prescribed for patients that need correction for distance, intermediate, and near vision simultaneously. They are often referred to as “invisible” or “no-line” bifocals. Because of their improved cosmetics, most patients over age 40 will choose these over the traditional lined bifocal. We recommend the latest technology in progressive lenses for minimal adaptation times.
