 Materials 

"Some lenses outweigh the others."

Materials

PLASTIC (CR-39)

Plastic lenses are widely used and are recommended for weak prescriptions. They are basic lenses and can scratch easily without coating. They also do not provide UV protection, is not impact resistant and also heavier and thicker.  

★★ POLYCARBONATE

Polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter than plastic.  They are also 10 times more impact resistant than plastic – suitable for children and active wearers.  UV coating comes standard with polycarbonate.

★★★ TRIVEX

Trivex has the UV blocking and shatter resistant properties of polycarbonate. However, Trivex lenses have much better optical clarity and are even lighter.  In fact, Trivex is the lightest weight lens material available.  They are easily tinted and preferred for rimless drill-mount frames.

★★★ HIGH INDEX 1.67 | 1.74

High index lenses are premium lenses used for strong prescriptions as they offer the thinnest and lightest lens possible. However, the lenses are dense and reflect more light which can be bothersome for the wearer especially at night and while using the computer. The glare is also noticeable to others looking at you. That said, an AR Coating is highly recommended.

 Coating

Coating

★  BASIC

Sharpview® is a very basic level coating to reduce glare and we recommend to have this at bare minimum to improve optical quality of lenses.

★★★  ULTRA

Crizal Alizé® lenses use a patented HSD Process™ (High Surface Density) for enhanced smudge protection while increasing the density of the hydrophobic molecules on the surface.

 

Crizal Rock® features High-Resistance Technology™, a combination of specific oxides that make the lenses 3X more scratch-resistant than your basic coating.

★★★★  ULTIMATE

Crizal Sapphire® lenses come with Multi-Angular Technology™ and feature best-in-class  glare/reflection reduction from every angle, providing better aesthetics, enhanced UV protection, and safest nighttime driving.

 

Crizal Prevencia® UV lens is superior at filtering out blue-violet light from screens, smartphones, and tablets to reduce potential harmful effects on the eyes.

 Multifocal 

"What's better than 2 lenses in 1?

How about 3 lenses in 1."

Multifocal

BIFOCALS

No more switching between your distance and reading glasses. With bifocals you can get both in one lens. Bifocals are noticeable because of a visible line but they also have larger viewing areas and contain less distortion on the peripheral edges.

PROGRESSIVE

With Progressive lenses, no one will ever know that you're wearing multifocals. That's because the lenses are blended into each other with a progression from distance, to mid, to near.  Keep in mind there is some peripheral distortion and it may take up to 2-3 weeks to adjust. 

★ STANDARD

Natural Digital® is a standard digital progressive lens with the basic necessities.  

★★ PREMIUM

Varilux Comfort 2 DRx® is our entry into the premium Varilux Series. These lenses give a greater reading area with a wider range of gaze directions. This results in fewer posture changes for a more comfortable fit.

★★★  ULTRA

Varilux Comfort Max® is an upgrade that uses Flex Optim™ Technology which is uniquely created for patients' prescriptions and can increase the vision zone up 46%.

★★★ ★  ULTIMATE

Varilux Physio W3® is a top-tier progressive that offers patients exceptionally smooth transitions from distance to near by using SynchroEyes Technology which calculates the lenses as a matched pair, helping the eyes work better together. The W.A.V.E. 2 Technology removes distortions and blurriness and superior sharp vision even in dim lighting.
