Lens Materials & Qualities
There is a variety of different materials, with different traits, commonly used to make lenses. These textiles and traits include:
Hard resin: This material is more impact-resistant than glass, but comparatively lighter. It is easier to scratch.
Polycarbonate: This material is impact-resistant and lighter than others, making it ideal for active patients. It also absorbs UV radiation.
Trivex: This material is impact-resistant, durable and provides UV resistance
Glass: This material is the most scratch-resistant among the other materials available. But it is a comparatively heavier option and cannot be used in approved safety eyewear.
In addition to providing multiple materials, there are also different kinds of lens designs, such as:
Single vision: These lenses function as all-purpose glasses, which can be worn during any activity.
Aspheric lenses: These lenses provide an ultra-thin look and are flatter than conventional lenses
Flat top bifocals: These lenses offer older style bifocal designs of varying widths. They can be made of any material.
Franklin style bifocals: These lenses come in a thicker design and are available in glass, hard resin and photochromic glass.
Trifocals: These are a common type of lenses that allow arms-length vision precluded by bifocals. They are available in all materials.
Progressives: If you are looking for cosmetically appealing lenses, try progressives. They provide clear vision at all distances and can be made in all materials.
Occupational: These lenses address the demanding visual requirements of those in certain jobs who wear bifocals and trifocals.
Your lenses can be specially treated to match your needs. These options include:
Scratch-resistant coating: The coating is applied to reduce the likelihood of scratches on the lens.
UV protection: An extra coating is applied to protect your eyes from ultraviolet radiation.
Anti-reflection/glare coatings: These coatings help in reducing eye fatigue and are suitable for night driving. Learn more.
