Thinner and lighter than plastic, polycarbonate (impact-resistant) lenses are shatter-proof and provide 100% UV protection, making them the optimal choice for kids and active adults. They’re also ideal for strong prescriptions since they do not add thickness when correcting vision, minimizing any distortion.
High-index lenses are ideal for you if you are looking for eyeglasses that are lighter and thinner. Doctors might recommend this type of lens if you have a strong prescription for eyeglasses for farsightedness, astigmatism, or nearsightedness.
ARC - Anti-Reflective Coating
AR coatings enhance the way you see the world by allowing more light to pass through the lens while eliminating glare, so you have clear vision on the job, in the classroom, around the house, and behind the wheel. Add blue light protection for an additional cost.
Transition lenses, or photochromic lenses, are the lenses that darken in the sunlight and lighten in softer light or the dark. These lenses have been around for a decade or more, and they offer the convenience of sunglasses without having to wear them over your prescription glasses or having to constantly switch between the two.
In a solid tint the color remains uniform across the lens.
A gradient is typically darker at the top and fades toward the bottom.
Polarized sunglass lenses remove reflected light, reduce glare and filter harmful ultraviolet radiation.
