How a Lens are Made
Eyeglasses are available in all shapes and sizes…and for a variety of applications. Since we depend so much on our lenses to help us see the world clearly, you may wonder what goes into creating them.
Employing specially trained lens technicians and state-of-the-art equipment, you can feel confident knowing the eyeglasses you receive have undergone careful inspection at every step of manufacturing to assure you receive the finest quality lenses possible.
AR treated lenses reduce distracting glare and eliminate dangerous reflections while creating a nicer cosmetic appearance. AR treated lenses appear thinner and almost non-existent, helping your eyes look more natural. Better yet, AR treated lenses provide the most durability and are easy to clean. Fingerprints and face oils wipe off easily with hardly any effort. Premium AR treatments also help to repel dirt and dust, and keep lenses cleaner longer. Patient concerns about care and cleaning are erased!
Scratch Resistant Lenses
For lenses that do not include an anti-reflective treatment, it is important to protect them with a scratch resistant treatment. Lenses that are treated on the front and backside with a clear, hard coating show increased resistance to scratching. A two-sided scratch resistant treatment is the best choice for optimal scratch resistant protection.
Progressive addition lenses, or no-line bifocals, are the most natural form of vision correction available. These multifocal lenses provide a full range of focus distance, to intermediate and near…gradually, without any separations or interruptions from a lined segment. These lenses have no seams, or lines, and look exactly like single vision lenses.
Transitions lenses automatically adjust to changing light outdoors and become as dark as sunglasses in bright outdoor light, providing comparable glare protection to non-polarized sun lenses. Unlike regular sun lenses, the performance of Transitions lenses is dynamic, providing just the right amount of tint outdoors. As light conditions change, the level of tint and glare reduction changes as needed. As a result, visual quality and visual comfort are enhanced.
Much like ordinary clear lenses, Transitions lenses will not darken inside the car because the windshield blocks most UV rays that will cause the lenses to change color. Transitions lenses are an ideal choice for individuals who want to see better today and preserve the health and well-being of their eyes for the future.
High Index Lenses
High index lenses are thin and light weight and refer to lenses with an index higher than 1.58. In addition to being more cosmetically appealing, the lighter weight lenses provide greater comfort for lens wearers. High index lenses are the ideal choice for prescriptions with high amounts of plus or minus power.
Polarized lenses function to eliminate light reflections originating from horizontal surfaces like water or asphalt. Polarized lenses are made of a special material that is capable of filtering and blocking one of the two planes of light that creates blinding glare. In addition to eliminating blinding glare, polarized lenses also provide increased contrast.
Having the right equipment for your sport and/or hobby is very important. Without it, you can not perform at your best and run the risk of injuries. Protective eyewear needs to be a vital piece of equipment for all types of sports, including team sports like basketball, to individual activities like hunting and swimming.

Digital Lens Benefits
In today’s high tech world many of you have heard the term high definition.
Digital lenses are synonymous with what HD stands for because they too offer better visual picture and sharper definition throughout the entire visual surface of your lenses!
It is important to understand the lens material for digital lenses is no different than the standard lens material. How the lens is manufactured is what sets digital lenses apart.
To create these lenses an advanced digital technology is used to resurface the lens allowing for greater precision over the entire lens surface. This enables your prescription to be the exact same strength on the very outer edges of your lenses as it is in the middle. Surfacing the lenses this way provides you with more visual comfort, improved peripheral vision, sharper definition and less eye fatigue.
Digital lenses also allow more versatility in lens shapes in regards to prescription so you are not limited on frame styles because of your prescription needs. Please watch the video below for more information about this exciting technology!
