No-glare, or anti-reflective lenses, allow more light into the eye by reducing glare from computer screens, lights over head, and headlights. Further, no-glare lenses improve outward appearance by reducing reflections off the lens. No-glare lenses are capable of filtering blue-light and are recommended for nearly all prescriptions.
Scratch Resistance is recommended on all materials in order to minimize unsightly scratches, which over time will reduce clarity and vision. This provides a one year warranty against scratching.
Ultra-Violet (UV) Absorption protects the eyes and ocular tissue from harmful UV light. This is required on plastic but is part of polycarbonate and hi-index lenses.
Transitions lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, are a special type of lens that darken when in the sunlight and lighten when in softer light or the dark. This versatility gives the wearer the convenience of being able to move between different environments without needing to change their glasses. Transition lenses also filter out many of the harmful UV rays that are emitted from the sun, helping to keep eyes healthy too. They are ideal for people who spend a lot of time going between inside and outside, or who work outside in varying weather conditions.
Polarized lenses greatly reduce horizontal reflections and glare from water, snow and windshields. Polarized lenses are recommended for most sunglasses.
Additional lens treatments include Mirrored, Gradient, and Solid Tint.
