New technology lenses are available and specifically designed for people who do prolonged near or computer work to provide you with a 25% wider field of view than traditional progressive lenses.  These special lenses give you clear close-up and computer vision and are ideal for people who have eye strain, tired eyes, or blurry vision while doing computer work.  Anyone having a difficult time seeing inside of arm’s length is a great candidate for computer glasses. Lenses designed for close work can also be of benefit to you in other activities, like reading music, sewing, quilting, jewlery repairs, woodworking, and other crafts. Talk to one our opticians and see if this is the right lens for you.


As the demands for new technological devices increases, it is important that you have glasses to use those devices giving you the best possible vision. 


Is a superior lens material that is known for being light weight, giving super crisp vision, and hi-impact resistant.  Also is the best material for drill mount lenses because of its strength.  A great lens choice for moderate to high prescriptions, children and for those with very active lifestyles.  


Polycarbonate is a classic protective lens material.  Thin, lightweight, and shatter-resistant, it’s the lens of choice for children and anybody who participates in sports activities because of it’s comfort and excellent impact resistant qualities.


This is the thinnest lens material used in eyewear, and ideal for people who have very high prescriptions to give them a light weight thinner lens while maintaining super crisp and clear optics.


A lens design allowing progressively stronger optics as you look through the lower portion of your lenses.  This lens has replaced the traditional lined bifocal or trifocal, and is for anyone needing clearer vision to see up close for reading or computer.  There are thousands of progressive lens designs available, and your optometrist and optician team will work together to recommend the best lens design for your visual lifestyle and activities.  There are advanced progressive designs for different computer heights, positions, and screen sizes;  for golf, for students, and for early presbyopes.  People with sensitive vision or trouble adapting to older design no-line bifocals do extremely well with new digital progressive designs.


Transitions is brand of lens that lightens and darkens depending on light conditions.  It’s a great choice for those who are sensitive to light and want an automatic lens darkening feature.  Because this lens requires direct UV radiation to darken, it does not work best while driving in a car, or if worn under a hat.  It’s very popular as a second pair of glasses, along with a primary pair of devoted dark sunglasses for total light control in any environment.

Polarized Lenses 

Polarization eliminates reflected light and glare from all horizontal surfaces and increases visibility when outside.  By far, it’s the best lens feature for daytime driving, and a must have for activities such as boating, poolside, or fishing as it allows you to see below the surface of water.  Coupled with the right tint, anti-reflective back surface, and front-side mirror, polarized lenses are people wanting superior vision in extreme environments.

No Glare or Anti-Reflective 

This treatment is hardened onto a lens surface and can significantly reduce glare, reflections, and what’s called “ghost imaging”.  All high quality lenses have an anti-reflective treatment when precision optics is a must.  You’ll see this not only on your eyewear, but also on all phone or video camera lenses, telescopes, and microscopes.  Sunglasses with a back surface anti-reflective treatment offer exceptional UV protection for outdoor enthusiasts.


Tinted lenses can come in a variety of colors to enhance your vision or to add a little style to your glasses.  The most popular tints are gray and brown, although lighter shades of purple, yellow, orange, and gray-green have been found to have positive effects in certain environments, such as brightening cloudy days, or creating better contrast in low light.  There are even tints to restore missing photoreceptor function to a person’s visual perception, or block an overabundance of light from an intense or damaging source.
