Lens Type

Single Vision Lenses are an affordable option to correct only one distance far or near . Depending on the power you need, different materials and optical technologies are available to provide you with an excellent visual experience with the thinnest and lightest lenses possible.

  • Conventional Single Vision: The Conventional Single Vision lenses are an affordable option, they correct only one distance far, intermediate or near. Different material and options are available.
  • Free Form Digital Single Vision: Advanced free form technology allows more precision compared to conventional single vision lenses, leading to clear and sharp vision over the entire lens surface.  A unique optical experience…

Bifocals Lenses have two distinct optical powers, Bifocals are commonly prescribed to people with presbyopia who also require a correction for myopia, hyperopia, and/or astigmatism.

  • Type of Bifocals
    • Flat Top 28
    • Flat Top 35
    • Trifocals 7×28
    • Trifocals 8×35

Progressive lenses, sometimes called “no-line bifocals allow smooth, clear vision from near to far with one lens – and all without image jumps or transitions.

The general rule is: the more the design of a progressive lens takes into account the personal parameters of the wearer, the more comfortable and relaxed their vision will be – and the shorter the adaptation period becomes.

Coating and Treatment

  • Anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating or anti-glare coating) improves both your vision through your lenses and the appearance of your eyeglasses.     Both benefits are due to the ability of AR coating to eliminate reflections of light from the front and back surface of eyeglass lenses. With fewer reflections, more light passes through the lens to the eye for good vision and the lenses look more transparent and attractive.
  • AR Coating
  • AR Coating Advance
  • Blue Block

UV Coating is an invisible dye that blocks ultraviolet (UV) light.  Just as sunscreen keeps the sun’s UV rays from harming your skin, UV-protective treatments for eyeglass lenses block those same rays from damaging your eyes.    Overexposure to ultraviolet light is thought to be a cause of cataracts, retinal damage and other eye problems.

The lenses that are treated front and back with a clear, scratch-resistant coating have a much harder surface that is more resistant to scratching, whether from dropping your glasses on the floor or occasionally cleaning them with a paper towel.  No eyeglass lenses — not even glass lenses — are totally scratch-proof

Are an in house color tint that can be applied to some lenses, to reduce the amount of light passing through the lens.

Mirror are a reflective optical coating (called a mirror coating or flash coating) on the outside of the lenses to make them appear like small color  mirrors.. The mirror coating decreases the amount of light passing through the tinted lens by a further 10–60%, making it especially useful for conditions of sand, water, snow, and higher altitudes. Mirrored sunglasses are one-way mirrors and it come in a wide variety of options:

  • Blue Mirror
  • Gold Mirror
  • Silver Mirror

Lens Material

Polycarbonate lenses are lighter and significantly more impact-resistant than CR-39 plastic, making it a preferred material for children’s eyewear,safety glasses and sports eyewear.

This lens material is light weight, low cost and has excellent optical qualities; CR-39 plastic remains a popular material for eyeglass lenses in the Optical industry.

These lenses are made from a newer plastic with similar characteristics of polycarbonate lenses. They are lightweight, thin, and impact-resistant but has a sharper and better vision correction than the polycarbonate lenses.

High-index lenses are the right choice if you want thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses that are as attractive and comfortable as possible.  Thinner, lighter high-index lenses are especially recommended if you have a strong eyeglass prescription for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.  The higher the Index the thinner the lens will be.

  • Hi Index 1.60
  • Hi Index 1.67
  • Hi Index 1.74

Photochromic lenses lens treatment enables eyeglass lenses to darken automatically in response to the sun’s UV and high-energy visible (HEV) light rays, and then quickly return to clear (or nearly clear) when indoors. Photochromic lenses are available in virtually all lens materials and designs.

  • Zeiss Photo Fusion: Made in Germany, Photo Fusion lenses are available in a neutral gray and brown tint for accurate color vision in all lighting conditions, according to the company. The lenses darken up to 20 percent faster and lighten indoors up to twice as fast as any photochromic lenses. They have UV protection
  • Rodenstock Colormatic: Also made in Germany, Rodenstock’s ColorMatic lenses are available in gray, brown and green photochromic tints. The company also offers ColorMatic IQ Contrast photochromic lenses in contrast-enhancing shades of orange and green. They have UV400 protection.
  • Transitions Lenses: Transitions lenses (also called Transitions Signature VII lenses) represent the seventh generation of Transitions photochromic lenses. Introduced in 2014, Transitions Signature lenses are available in a wide variety of lens materials and designs, in either a gray or brown light-adaptive tint. The lenses are clear indoors, get 15 to 21 percent darker outdoors than previous Transitions lenses. They block 100% all UVA-UVB harmful rays.
    • Transitions Drivewear: These are polarized sunglasses specifically designed for optimum driving vision in variable daylight conditions. Depending on lighting conditions, Because they remain significantly tinted at all times, these photochromic lenses are not recommended for indoor or night-time wear.
    • Transition Extra Active: These lenses are darker than Signature VII lenses (both indoors and outdoors) for wearers who are light-sensitive indoors and desire a darker lens when driving and outdoors. Available in gray tint only.

Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks the intense light and glare reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water.  This means that, instead of light being scattered in all directions in more usual ways, reflected light generally travels in a more horizontally oriented direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of light that we experience as glare.
