Lens Types

Plastic eyeglasses lenses are by far the most popular choice these days, thanks to their lightweight design and affordability.

CR39 lenses are the most popular plastic lens option thanks to their lightweight and scratch-resistant design. These lenses weigh almost half as much as glass, and are the most resistant to scratches, they are also ideal for prescription sunglasses because they hold tint easily.

Made from plastic, these lenses are extremely lightweight yet durable. Their impact and wear-resistance make these lenses a popular choice for children, athletes, and others who work a physically demanding job. These lenses also come with built-in UV protection to protect your eyesight.

High-index lenses are any lenses with a refractive index that is higher than 1.5. We can make these lenses from polycarbonate and CR39 plastics.

Aspheric lenses are less spherical than traditional lenses, with flatter curves and a thinner design. These lenses lessen your eye distortion and lower the profile of your glasses. They also work for both farsighted and nearsighted prescriptions.

Polarized lenses are made with a built-in chemical filter that increases clarity and reduces glare off of shiny surfaces such as snow, water, and ice. These lenses are popular among those who spend time driving, or outdoors for sports and leisure. Their design filters sunlight to reduce eye fatigue, making them extremely comfortable for all-day wear.

Photochromic lenses automatically darken when exposed to different levels of UV light. In bright environments, they will darken to make seeing more comfortable for you. If your eyes are sensitive to bright light, photochromic lenses are an ideal choice.
