Single vision lenses are made with one prescription throughout the lens for either distance, intermediate or near focal lengths.
Bifocals are lenses that have two different prescriptions in them, separated by a small line or segment usually 28mm in width. They usually have a distance prescription on the top portion of the lens and near prescription on the bottom portion of the lens for reading. What focal length is in each section will be prescribed by your doctor.
Progressive lenses are designed to give the wearer a more natural way of viewing through their lenses. A typical progressive will have three different prescriptions in them, distance on top, an intermediate in the middle then followed by a near prescription at the bottom with no line separating the three areas. Traditional progressive lenses are a premier value alternative as they are easy to adapt to and comfortable to wear.
Digital progressive lenses follow the same format as traditional progressives but with its advanced design they can improve prescription accuracy and create a smoother transition through each prescription zone. This produces less of a “swimming” effect when you look from side to side, as can be seen in traditional progressive lenses. The channels are also significantly wider and offer overall less distortion and better optics.

Anti-reflective coating (also known as “AR coating” or “anti-glare coating”) eliminates the reflections from the front and back surface of your lenses. By removing reflections your vision is sharper, dramatically improving your vision, especially while driving at night. AR coated lenses also help to reduce eye strain from prolong computer use, all while making your lenses nearly invisible to other people. These helps you to look your best in any lighting condition and allows people to see your eyes not a reflection.
This lens add-on has the same benefits of the standard anti-reflective coating but also provides added protection for you eyes. With the upsurge in electronic devices, your eyes are exposed to increasing levels of harmful blue light spectrum. These blue rays of light are emitted from digital devices, such as your phone, tablet and computer. Blueprotect Lenses protect your eyes from the dangers of the high levels of UV rays and harmful, high-energy blue light for a lifetime of vision preservation.
Photochromic lenses are clear lenses that darken to grey automatically when exposed to UV light. When no longer exposed to UV light, the lenses return to their clear state. Photochromic lenses do not always work effectivity in cars because a cars windshield naturally screens out most of the ultraviolet light.
Polarized sunglass lenses are coated with a special chemical film which reduces the glare from the sun. This is especially helpful in reducing the reflections off of water, snow or solid surfaces (such as windshields) By neutralizing the suns glare, polarized lenses help you see objects more clearly while reducing the harmful effects of UV rays. These lenses come in three different colors, grey, brown and G15 (dark green).
