Digital Lenses: The newest addition to len technology using digital surfacing. Digital lenses are 10 times more accurate than convention surfacing with precision to the 0.001 diopter. Offering the sharpest vision at every distance in every lighting, even low lighting. The most effective for patients with higher prescriptions that have single vision or multifocal prescriptions.
We also offer many other lens options including: glass lenses, panorama lenses, specially designed computer lenses and much more.
AR Coating: Recommended with every prescription. Anti-Relfective Coating decreasing reflection and even makes frames aesthetically look better. It helps produce less glare, which is particularly noticeable when driving at night or working in front of a computer monitor. The decreased glare means that wearers often find their eyes are less tired, particularly at the end of the day. Allowing more light to pass through the lens also increases contrast and therefore increases visual acuity. The AR Coating you choose will determine your lens warranty longevity. We suggest Crizal AR Coatings as they are the best in the industry. To see the different benefits of each Crizal coating click HERE.
UV Ultraviolet Protection: UV Protection will sheild your eyes from sun rays that can be damaging to the eyes.
Scratch Resistant Coating: Scratch resistant coating is ten times less prone to scuffs and scratches than uncoated lenses. Prevent your new lenses from everyday dust and particles that can impair your sight over time. We also now offer TD2 Technology, the best scratch resistance available today.
Polarized: We have several in store polarized tint options to choose from. Light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water generally is horizontally polarized. This means that, instead of light being scattered in all directions in more usual ways, reflected light generally travels in a more horizontally oriented direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of light that we experience as glare. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare.
Transitions Lenses: Transitions lenses are designed to meet the needs of the majority of those who appreciate the value of eyewear offering adaptive lens technology. Transitions lenses quickly adapt between indoor and outdoor conditions, offering a distinct advantage over ordinary clear lenses. Change from clear indoors to dark outdoors. Blocking 100% of the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays. Available in gray and brown tint.
Lens Tinting: We have several in store tint color options to choose from. We have produced some of the most detailed and elaborate tints including: solid, gradient, double gradient, polarized, mirror, photochromic, and flash tinting.

Lens Painting: We do custom lens painting for someone looking for a unique side profile from their glasses. Many times people with higher prescriptions will want to hide their thicker lenses and what better way than to paint the lens edges the same color as their frame.
