Lens Types

Progressive Lenses

Also known as no-line bifocals, provide the smoothest transition from long distance vision to intermediate vision to near vision, including all the in-between corrections. Instead of having just two different viewing zones (distant and reading) as in bifocals, your new progressive eyeglass lenses provide gradual or progressive powers of correction (from top to bottom), which ease eye strain and provide better vision.
With progressive addition lenses, no one will ever know that you even need reading glasses. Progressive bifocal lenses are not only the most attractive lens to wear, they also offer the most natural vision correction.
For different needs, we offer various types of progressive lenses, each offering their own unique qualities. Choose among the progressive eyeglass lenses that we offer according to brand or functionality.


Bifocal Lenses

Bifocal Lenses contain two different prescriptions in the same lens. The primary purpose of glasses bifocals is to provide the optimal balance between distance vision and near vision focusing needs. Eyeglasses bifocal lenses are available with the reading segments in a variety of shapes and widths including sunglasses bifocal options. The most popular reading bifocal is the Flat-Top (also known as straight-top or D-segment), 28 millimeters wide.


Trifocal Lenses

Trifocal Lenses contain three focal points, usually for distance, intermediate and near vision. A tri focal lens has an added segment above the bifocal for viewing objects in the intermediate zone, which is approximately arm's length away. Trifocal lenses are available with the reading segments in a variety of shapes and widths.


Photochromic  Lenses

Photochromic  Lenses are variable tint lenses that darken on exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Once the UV is removed (for example by walking indoors), the variable tint eyeglass lenses will return to their clear state. Photochromic lenses for distance, intermediate and near vision may be made of either plastic, polycarbonate or high index.  We offer  a number of Transition Lenses that vary in their tinting ability based on each individual’s daily needs.
