Here are some examples of what we might suggest:
For someone with a high prescription or someone who finds the weight or appearance of their spectacle lenses a problem, a high index lens in plastic will be lighter, so more comfortable, and thinner, so more appealing. The higher the refractive index of the lens, the more dense the lens material and consequently the thinner the lens. Aspheric lens designs can also be used to improve lens cosmesis.
For those who’d like the convenience of combining their sunglasses and spectacles into one, photochromic lenses are lenses that darken on exposure to UV radiation. Photochromic lenses block out 100% of the most harmful rays of the sun, 100% of the time, adapting to changes in light and darkening in seconds.
To reduce reflection on your lenses, an anti-reflective coating is advised as this makes you look more appealing to anyone who may be communicating with you. They will see your eyes and not the reflection of whatever is in front of you. This coating (or lack of it) is highly noticeable on people who are talking on TV. Lenses treated with an anti-relection coating also produce less glare, which is often problematic when driving at night or working in front of a computer monitor. The decreased glare means that wearers often find their eyes are less tired, particularly at the end of the day. Anti-reflection coatings are particularly suited to high-index lenses.
To prolongue the life of your lenses, a scratch-resistant hard coating will protect against day-to-day wear and tear. Protecting the lens surface will maintain clearer vision by preserving the optical qualities of the lens.
We provide a diverse range of lens types, utilising the expertise of companies such as Kodak, Zeiss, Essilor (Varilux), Hoya, and Rodenstock.
