Prescription Eyewear San Francisco
Rims and Goggles in San Francisco provides leading prescription eyewear services in the San Francisco, Union Square and Presidio Heights areas. Our state-of-the-art prescription eyewear services dispense the finest quality lenses. We have a vast array of fashionable prescription eyewear rims from the world’s finest designers, our own iconic brand. Real Buffalo horn rims, and outstanding working relationships with top prescription eyewear lens laboratories. Lenses are available in single vision formats, for reading or distance correction. Our Multi-focal lenses provide multi-function, which helps improve vision in a variety of settings. Progressive lenses work like a bifocal or trifocal. The difference is aesthetics: a progressive lens has no line separating the different zones, lending a clean, seamless appearance to the lenses. We also offer an occupational progressive lens for use in environments such as the office or studio, where focus is generally kept within a 2 to 12 foot radius. These lenses are similar to standard progressive lenses, except that the top of the lens serves the intermediate viewing range, rather than distance. These lenses prevent the wearer from extensive head tilting (to access the narrow reading area), which is sometimes associated with standard progressive lenses.
Lens materials are an important factor in the protection, durability, and clarity of your lenses. We offer prescription eyewear lenses in CR39, Polycarbonate, Trivex, and all Hi-Indices, up to 1.74. Your prescription, function, and personal preference will influence the lens material choice. Both Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses feature exceptional impact resistance, and are equipped with a UV filter that helps prevent eye damage.
Anti-Reflective Coatings (ARC) are exceptionally valuable and greatly improve the performance of lenses. By eliminating the surface reflections from surrounding light sources, ARC gives the wearer an absolute crisp visual acuity. We also offer prescription eyewear lenses with built-in Anti-Fog Coating.
Transition lenses contain a photo-reactive chemical, which unfurls upon exposure to Ultra Violet light, thereby darkening the lenses. and wearers are provided with a single pair of lenses for both indoor and outdoor use. Carl Zeiss has recently released a proprietary new technology called PHOTOFUSION, which allows transition lenses, in their clear state, to achieve an unprecedented 93% transparency. This minimizes the unbecoming tint associated with first and second generation transition lenses, which turned many people away from the transitional option.
