What are my options for lenses?
There are many eyeglass lens options available. Your eye care provider will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses for your eyes.
Here are some of the most common eyeglass lens types:
- Photochromatic lenses – These lenses are made of photo sensitive materials that automatically adjust to the level of surrounding light. Typically they will change in the presence of UV light. Some will change with visible light. We use both Transitions brand and Sensity branded photochromatic lenses
- UV coated lenses – Unless you are ordering regular plastic lenses, most materials like polycarbonate will inherently absorb UV light. A lens can be both clear and absorb the harmful UV rays…pretty cool
- Tinted or Polarized sunglass lenses – If you are getting prescription sunglasses, you might want to get tinted eyeglasses instead. These look like sunglasses and protect the health of your eyes by keeping out UV rays. Polarized sunglasses filter light at certain angles. As any fisherman will tell you, polarized lenses allow you to see the fish instead of the glare from the surface of the water.
- Scratch-resistant coating – A transparent coating that helps protect lenses from those annoying scratches. Scratch-resistant coating is especially useful for children’s eyeglasses and are incorporated into anti-glare coatings.
- Hi-Index Lenses – Every lens has a number associated with it that is known as a lens index. Transparent materials all have an index value that allows one to determine how much light will bend when passing through it. The more the light bends through the material, the less of that material you need to achieve the same effect and by extension make them thinner. Common Hi Index Materials have names like 1.60, 1.67, 1.70 or 1.74. The higher the number the thinner the lens. Crystal Eyecare has access to a wide array of lens materials to make your glasses look great.
- Anti-glare lenses – Anti-glare/anti-reflective lenses are processed in special vacuum chambers in which oxides are turned into plasma and allowed to set on the lens surface. Anti-glare coatings are composed of many oxide layers, scratch resistance layers and a topcoat. These layers come together to allow more light to pass through the lens instead of being reflected back. All good optics have these coatings from camera lenses to telescopes, microscopes and binoculars. If you have a phone with a camera, it is almost certainly coated. Crystal Eyecare uses Hoya brand anti-glare coatings that provide easy cleanability, excellent anti-reflective properties and great scratch resistance.
