High Index Lenses – for those who have a higher prescription we offer thin lenses that provide excellent optics as well as they will look great in your new frame.
Progressive Lenses – the “no-line bifocal” provides you with a smooth transition from distance to near. There are hundreds of progressive styles available for which we use digitally surfaced lenses which provide optimal vision for your needs.
Anti-Reflective Treatments (A/R) – we recommend to obtain lenses with anti-reflective (A/R) treatment. The A/R treatment provides durability and scratch resistance while reducing glare.
Transition Lenses – these lenses darken when outdoors and will lighten up indoors while giving you the UV protection you need. Experience the comfort of transition lenses by going from regular glasses to sunglasses.
Polarized Lenses – these lenses are a specialty sunglass designed to reduce glare from surfaces such as water, snow and glass. Polarized lenses can improve visual comfort, contrast and visual clarity, reduces eye strain, allows for true perception of colors, reduces reflections and eliminates glare. Polarized lenses can be useful for certain sports and driving. Polarized lenses are also available with Transition lenses.
We offer a one year, one time replacement on both your lenses and frames. If something happens to your frame that cannot be repaired we will replace it, one time, at no charge.
