Our state-of-the-art optical labs lenses, adjusts, and dispenses the finest quality frames lenses. We have a vast array of fashionable eyeglass rims from the finest designers in the world, including our own iconic brand. Genuine buffalo horn rims, and outstanding working relationships with top lensing laboratories. Lenses are available in single vision formats, for reading or distance correction. Also, multi-focal lenses provide added function, helping improve your 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 the distance. These lenses prevent the wearer from extensive head tilting (to access the narrow reading area), which is sometimes associated with standard progressive lenses.
Transition lenses contain a photo-reactive chemical, which unfurls upon exposure to Ultra Violet light, thereby darkening the lens. Wearers of transition lenses are essentially equipped with a single pair of lenses for both indoor and outdoor use. Carl Zeiss has developed a proprietary new PHOTOFUSION technology, which allows transition lenses, in their clear state, to achieve an unprecedented 93% transparency, nearly eliminating the “grayness” in associated with first and second generation transition lenses.
Lens materials are an important factor in the protection, durability, and clarity of your lenses. We offer lenses in CR39 (plastic), Polycarbonate, Trivex, and all Hi-Indices, up to 1.74. Your prescription, environment, and personal needs will influence the choice of lens material. 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 a crisp visual experience. We also offer lenses with a built-in Anti-Fog Coating, so you can forget the hassle of massaging anti-fog drops into your eyewear.
