At Heights Vision we offer be the best lenses possible for the best vision possible.



"Some lenses outweigh the others."




Plastic is your basic, economy lens material and has good optical clarity for weak prescriptions. They are also good for tints. But they are thicker, heavier, and are not impact resistant. They do not provide UV protection.  Some patients use this for a spare or a backup pair.



Polycarbonate lenses are more popular than plastic because they are thinner and lighter. They provide UV protection and are more impact resistant; making them durable and safe for active wearers.  They're also good for rimless drill-mount frames.


★★★ TRIVEX   ✔︎

Trivex is the gold standard and recommended for mild to moderate prescriptions because it has all the advantages of plastic and polycarbonate lenses without the disadvantages.  It is a premium lens material that provides excellent optical clarity, uv protection, tinting, impact-resistance, superior for rimless drill-mount frames, and is thin and light.

★★★ HIGH INDEX 1.67 | 1.74   ✔︎

High index is highly recommended for strong prescriptions. It is a premium material that provides the thinnest and lightest lens possible. However, the lenses are dense and reflect much more light; and for that, a high-quality anti-reflective coating is needed.


Digital Lenses


Digital Aspheric Lenses (aka Digital Lenses) are excellent for stronger prescriptions and astigmatism. Digital lenses are custom made to a patient's measurements with multiple optimization points for the clearest and sharpest vision from edge to edge.  This creates an even flatter surface to reduce edge distortion or what some patients may describe as a "fishbowl effect". Digital Lenses include: Essilor 360, Zeiss SmartLife Individual Single Vision, and Unity SV Extra.


Digital Lenses reduce edge distortion

Standard Lenses have more distortion


Digital lenses have much flatter surfaces to help create a more cosmetically appealing and natural appearance



Our eyes were never designed to spend so much time on screens.  Anti-fatigue lenses help with digital eye-strain with an enhanced power boost to relieve our tired eyes. 

So whether you're a student, a young professional, or someone who's not yet ready for a progressive; there's an anti-fatigue lens that's just right for you.  Just ask the doctor for details. Anti-fatigue lenses include: Essilor Eyezen, Zeiss Smartlife Digital, Unity Relieve, and IOT Endless lenses.



"See Better. Look Better."


Anti-Reflective Coating

Before starting with anti-reflective coating, we must understand the problem with reflections. Perfect vision is achieved when light enters the cornea and lands on the back of the retina.


Reflections on glasses prevent light from entering the cornea. What we perceive as "glare" is actually light bouncing off of our lenses – which blocks our vision.


Even while wearing glasses at night just to watch tv, reflections prohibit our vision.


Anti-reflective coatings remove the "glare" so we can see clearly. Also, it allows others to see our eyes instead of a large white reflection, which is helpful for photos and video conference calls.


Ultimate Anti-Reflective ★★★  

Ultimate Anti-Reflective Coating is the best-in-class reflection reduction, enhanced UV protection, and anti-glare from car headlights at night. They're also the most durable and scratch-resistant coatings. They are highly hydrophobic which helps repel water and smudges so it's easier to clean. Ultimate coatings include: Crizal Sapphire HR, Zeiss Duravision Platinum, Techshield Elite. 


Ultimate Blue Anti-Reflective Coating has the added benefit of filtering out blue-violet light from laptops, smartphones, and tablets to reduce digital eye-strain and harmful effects on the eyes. Ultimate Blue coatings included: Crizal Prevencia, Zeiss Duravision Blue, TechShield Blue



"Three different glasses...

in one lens."


When people reach their 40's, their eyes begin to lose the ability to focus from up close to far away. This condition is known as presbyopia. Progressive lenses are a great solution because they allow patients to see with an invisible progression from distance, mid, to near, and are convenient for those who dislike carrying separate driving, computer, and reading glasses. Progressives have a center corridor with the clearest vision but there is peripheral distortion. Fortunately,  Ultimate Progressives are technologically advanced to reduce this distortion for a comfortable, clear, and wide field of vision.

Ultimate Progressive ★★★ ★  

Ultimate Progressive lenses are the superior choice for presbyopic patients who want the sharpest and clearest vision possible. These lenses are highly-advanced and feature a honeycomb grid-system with a unique prescription to ensure the smoothest transition from near to far. The lenses also feature wider intermediate and reading areas for extreme comfort without adjusting head positions. Peripheral distortion or off-balance dizziness is reduced for walking downstairs; making them the safest option.  Ultimate Progressives include: Unity Via Elite II, Zeiss Smartlife Individual, Varilux X-Series, and Camber Steady Plus.


Occupational Progressives

While progressive lenses are great for day-to-day activities, an occupational progressive is great for working at the desk. The top of the lens is the intermediate prescription (for computer) and the bottom of the lens is the near prescription (for phone). These lenses are excellent for closeup work and up to an 8 feet range while in an office. They are not meant for distance vision such as walking outside or driving. Occupational progressives include: Essilor Computer, Zeiss OfficeLens, and Unity Via OfficePro.



"Glasses inside, Sunglasses outside."



Photosensitive or Photochromic lenses are light-sensitive and darken when exposed to UV rays so that your normal glasses have the convenience and UV protection of sunglasses. An added plus is that they filter out harmful blue light both indoors and outdoors. 


REGULAR (Faster Tint Change)

These lenses change tint much faster. Note that these may not darken while driving due to the UV blocking in windshields. Includes: Transitions Gen 8, PhotoFusion, SunSync Elite

EXTRA DARK  (Darker Tint)

These lenses become the darkest tint possible for those who are sensitive to light. They also darken to a degree while driving. Note that these take a little longer to transition and, when clear, it does retain 5% tint.  Includes: Essilor Transitions Xtra-Active, PhotoFusion Extra, Sunsync Elite XT



"Live life in the shade."




At Heights Vision we can convert any pair of glasses into sunglasses by simply tinting the lenses. In fact, there are many frames manufactured that are produced both as a clear or a sunglass lens. No matter if you're looking for a tinted sunglass or a polarized sunglass, we strongly recommend having an anti-reflective coating that offers UV Protection and scratch-protection for the lenses. 


Tinted lenses are an effective and stylish option for sunglasses. Lenses are dyed to achieve the desired tint from a very light tint (Grey 1) to a very dark tint (Grey 4). With tinted lenses, there is a wider range of colors to choose from. But if reducing glare from the sun and improving optical quality is the priority, there is a better option.



Polarized lenses are the superior choice to eliminate glare by filtering out horizontal light waves bouncing off water, snow, and roads to dramatically reduce eye strain. Polarized lenses also enhance visual clarity and contrast; making objects appear more vivid and clear. So if you're active and want the most effective lenses and protection against the sun, look no further than polarized lenses.

Note* The best sunglass lens material for optics and dark tints is Trivex followed by Plastic. Polycarbonate and Hi-Index 1.67 / 1.74 lenses do not tint as dark.
