Vision – this all-purpose lens is available in all materials,
and can be used for either distance, computer or near vision correction.
* Distance - Distance Rx will be used
* Computer - If multifocal Rx is entered 1/2 of reading power will
be used (rounded up).
* Reading - If multifocal Rx is entered full power of reading
power will be used. (distance and add power will be added together)
progressives – correct for far (driving a vehicle), intermediate
(viewing the dashboard), and near (reading a map) vision all in one
lens. Because there is no visible line, progressives have the
appearance of single-vision lenses and are, therefore, the most
cosmetically desirable multifocal. Progressives are available in all
Premium No-line progressives
GT2™ by ZEISS
Engineered for visual satisfaction.
GT2™ progressive lenses by ZEISS™ have been carefully
engineered around the visual and physiological requirements of the
wearer using the proven total aberration control of ZEISS Optical
Optimization & Management. This process maximizes both the
physiological and optical interaction of the lens design with the
visual system of the wearer to ensure the most natural, satisfying
viewing experience possible.
Key features and benefits of GT2 progressives include:
Wide, Clear Distance
GT2 is virtually distortion-free above the 180º line for truly
satisfying distance and peripheral vision.
Ergonomically Designed Near Zone
GT2’s large near zone is carefully positioned for the wearer’s
preferred eye rotation while reading.

This allows us to create high definition lenses within
1/100 of a diopter of intended design. Freeform lens technology
process is simply more advanced than conventional lens fabrication
offering increased precision, enhanced visual acuity and wide fields
of vision far superior to standard progressive lenses.

provide both far (driving) and near (reading a map) correction in
one lens. Unless otherwise specified at ordering the bifocal height
will be set 3mm below the center of the lens. Our standard bifocal
width is 28mm, 35mm wide is available at addition cost.
– . Three segmented lens The majority of the lens is for distance
viewing, while the center portion is divided into intermediate and
the bottom area for near viewing. Unless otherwise specified at
ordering the trifocal height will be set on the center of the lens.
Our standard trifocal width is 7x28mm, other sizes are available at
addition cost. The intermediate or center power of a trifocal is
always 50% of the reading power - this is set by the lens
manufacture and can not be changed.
– recommended to protect lenses from everyday wear-and-tear. FREE!
Included on all lenses.
When a spectacle lens becomes scratched, it can impair vision
through the lens and present an unattractive appearance. Scratch
resistant coating may be applied to both surfaces of a lens to help
protect against scratches caused by everyday use. This not only
increases the durability of the lens, but also protects your
investment. "Scratch-resistance" does not equal "scratch-proof".
Because of this, it is important to handle your glasses with care
and always place them in a proper case when not in use. Sorry we do
not warranty against scratches.
Plastic – Half the weight and more impact resistant than glass.
Plastic lenses are the most commonly used material, offering
versatility and comfort for everyday use. Lowest Cost.
1.58 Polycarbonate – technologically advanced high-index lenses
create a thinner profile for those with strong prescriptions. These
lenses are more comfortable as well as cosmetically desirable, about
a third thinner and lighter than plastic lenses.
high-index – Hi-Index material is about 45% thinner and 35%
lighter than conventional plastic lenses. If your looking for the
thinnest and lightest eyeglasses High Index 1.67 is for you.
protection – the sun’s ultraviolet rays pose potential harm to
your eyes. UV protection on lenses accomplishes the same thing as
sunscreen lotion on your skin –– it shields your eyes from harmful
ultraviolet rays. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun can
damage your eyes and affect your vision. A UV protective coating can
be applied to a lens to protect the wearer from these adverse
Tinted lenses – the majority of lenses can be tinted from light
to very dark. Tints for sun lenses are usually medium to dark
shades. Tints also come in a variety of color options. We do
not do gradient or custom colors.
LENS TINT CHOICES
C O L O R C H A R T
1 10% Tint
2 50% Tint
3 80% Tint
The level 3 (80%) tint is a dark sunglass tint for bright outdoor
conditions works well for sunglass applications.
The level 2 (50%) tint is a medium light sunglass tint that is not too dark
to make it unusable indoors, while giving some medium/light sunshade
The Level 1 (10%) tint is a very light cosmetic /fashion tint barely
noticeable to the wearer, but giving a slight hint of color to
people looking at you..
Since the brightness and tint density displayed can vary on
each monitor for the identical image ,even on those hooked up to the
same computer, the color examples displayed above may not be an
exact match to the tint you will receive.
Transitions® lenses – Sometimes called “comfort”
Transitions® lenses lenses darken and lighten
according to light exposure. If the wearer is in the sun,
Transitions lenses darken, if indoors, the
lenses are light.
Transitions® lenses are available in virtually
all lens materials and lens designs.
XTRActive® eyeglass lenses turn from
lightly tinted indoors to dark outside. Transitions XTRActive lenses
darken to an 85% darkness outside, have 100% UV protection, and
change slightly in the car.
Anti-reflective – we suggest anti-reflective, or AR lenses, to
help reduce eye fatigue in all situations, particularly while
viewing computer screens and driving at night. In addition to
enhancing vision by removing distracting reflections, AR lenses are
cosmetically desirable, as the wearer’s eyes are clearly visible
behind the lenses.
An anti-reflective coating increases the amount of light
passing through the lens, while reducing the amount of light
reflected by the outer surface of the lens and virtually eliminating
glare on the inner surface. This benefits the wearer by increasing
visual acuity (especially in low-light conditions, such as driving),
enhancing appearance, and removing the distracting reflections of
ones' eyes on the inner surface of the lenses.
Standard AR lenses greatly improve
vision but require additional cleaning and care. Our premium AR
coating DIAMOND® lenses clean easier because of a special
topcoat that cleans easier and actually repels oil and dust. These
lenses also come with a 1 year warranty against defects. Limited to
a 1 time replacement.
Polarized lenses – are the top pick for
glare. Hunters, boaters and fishermen, golfers, and drivers are a
few who benefit from polarized lens’ glare-cutting properties. Any
surface can create glare in sunlight, including water, sand, snow,
windows, vehicles, and buildings. Polarization eases eye stress and
fatigue in the sun, and comes in Gray or Brown
