There are many different kinds of lenses from single vision, to bifocal, to “workstation” to progressives (the no-line bifocal).
- We stock a wide range of powers in single vision lenses in both polycarbonate and hi-index.
- Polycarbonate lenses are made of an incredibly impact resistant material that is thin and light, scratch resistant and filters 100% UV A and B. We stock the Optima Resolution lens which is an atoric design to give you the best optics.
- Our hi-index lenses, made by Seiko/Pentax, are even thinner than polycarbonate and also filter 100% UV A and B. Our hi-index lenses have an anti-reflective coat and are aspheric for better vision.
- Anti-reflective coated lenses give you a much cleaner view of the world by reducing the ghost and halos images off your lenses. This is the same coating that all quality binoculars and camera lenses use. The cleaner the image entering your eye the better your vision will be.
- If you need bifocals because you suffer from “short arm disease” aka presbyopia there are many options available to you.
- The Progressive lens is the best choice for most everyone. Also called the no-line bifocal, they progress from distance at the top through a midrange down to your up close range. We sell lenses from Varilux, the originator of progressives, Zeiss, and the newest in lens technology the Shamir Autograph 2 with Eye Point technology.
- For those in an office setting or if you spend time on the computer a “Work station” lens is a great option. Designed for 10 feet and closer the work station is great for computer, music, or other activities like reading and crafts.
- For the traditionalist there are still many styles of lined bifocals available.
- There are many sunglass options for the Jackson lifestyle. From polarized, a must for fishing, to Transitions the light adjusting lens, or Drivewear the combination of both polarized and Transitions. There are many prescriptions that can be done in Maui Jim, and Rudy Project frames. There are regular tints available in a wide array of colors, shades and gradients.
