Lens Designs

Single Vision Lenses. Single Vision lenses have one type of correction over the entire lens and because of this, they can only correct one type of vision condition: either distance or near vision (reading). Single Vision lenses can be quite useful, however, if you need corrections for both near and far vision, Progressive lenses are often a better option.

Progressive Lenses. Progressive Lenses, also called No-Line Bifocals, have two corrections, one to correct near vision and one to correct distance vision. Progressive lenses blend your near and distance corrections seamlessly, so there’s no-line!  With our LUMINA® Elite 4K Progressive lenses, you can see clearly at all distances! It uses advanced digital technology and adjusts the lenses to compensate for the size, shape and curve of your sunglasses. This is particularly important for sports-wrap sunglasses like Oakley, Costa, Wiley X, Maui Jim and others.

Lens Materials

Polycarbonate Lenses are made with our own blend of high-impact resistant polycarbonate for durability and excellent visual performance. 

Trivex Lenses are super-clear and super strong.  Trivex has an optical clarity rating 35% to 40% greater than Polycarbonate and is also 100% shatter-proof.  Trivex is recommended for prescriptions that have a total power of LESS than +5 or -5 .

1.67 Extra-Thin Lenses are about 22% to 28% thinner and lighter than conventional plastic lenses. It’s recommended for strong prescriptions. It’s also a great choice for large glasses to help reduce thickness and weight.

1.74 Ultra-Thin Lenses are the thinnest lenses made. They’re recommended for strong prescriptions greater than +5 or -5, and for those who want the absolute thinnest & lightest lenses. 1.74 lenses cannot be used for “rimless drill-mount” glasses.
