Transition® Lenses

Automatically darken in sunlight and lighten indoors, allowing the wearer the convenience of one pair of glasses for indoors and out.

Xperio® Polarized Lenses

DriveWear® - the first changeable polarized outdoor lens. It darkens outside as well as behind the windshield. This lens reacts to all different outdoor weather and light conditions.

High Index (Thin Lenses)

Considerably thinner and lighter lenses. They weight much less and are much more comfortable to wear.

U.V. Filter

Highly recommended for its ability to protect the retina from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light, and for that reason is also required for all post-operative cataract patients.

Polycarbonate Lenses

The most impact resistant lenses. They too are made of a thinner, lighter material. The use is mandated for children under the age of 14 because of the superior safety features.

Bifocal Lenses

In the past this has been the most common style multi-focal lens. It allows the patient to see in the distance and close up with the same pair of glasses.

Computer Lenses

If you’re viewing a computer video display terminal (VDT) you may need variable focus lenses. These help correct vision for the computer screen and the immediate vicinity.

Frames

Whether you are looking for:

  • Everyday Eyewear
  • Designer Eyewear
  • Occupational Eyewear
  • Prescription Eyewear
  • Reading Glasses
  • Sportswear
  • Safety Glasses

Everyone has different needs when choosing eyeglass frames. Proper fit and a style that suits you are probably the two main objectives. Your face size and shape, hair and eye color, and other factors affect your decision. To make the best selection, you need a good understanding of what constitutes “proper fit.” This will affect how your glasses look, whether or not they are comfortable, and how well you see with them. Our optical professionals are specially trained to assist you with your frame selection.
