ALL ABOUT OUR LENSES

Here’s everything you need to know when choosing your lenses

Prescription types
Single-vision

Single vision type lenses are one of the most common in vision correction. It means the lenses are correcting for one field of vision—nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatisms. The entire lens contains the same amount of vision correction.

Progressives

Progressive lenses provide uninterrupted vision from distance to near without any visible lines between the zones. Progressive lenses’ seamless transition from distance correction on top to reading correction on bottom provide much sharper overall vision.

Bifocal

Bifocal lenses have two (2) distinct powers which are divided by a distinct line to separate.

Autograph intelligenceTM

"The first and most precisely personalized lenses based on individual needs and visual age."

Lens colors
Clear

We’re talking crystal clear. If you want completely uncolored vision while wearing your frames, inside and out, go with our standard clear lenses.

Light Responsive Lenses

These lenses transition from fully clear indoors to dark grey outdoors.

Lens materials
Polycarbonate Lenses

Excellent impact resistance-10 times more impact resistant than other lenses. Thin- about 20 to 25% thinner than plastic or glass lenses. Lightweight- about 20% lighter than plastic lenses. Blocks 100% UV rays without needing a special coating.

1.76 World’s Thinnest Lens

At least 30% thinner than 1.5 plastic lenses. Better optical clarity than polycarbonate lenses.

Add on your coating: further enhance your protection and vision
Anti-fog

Newly developed lens coating that prevents the rear lens surface from fogging up. Anyone who wears glasses is likely to have experienced the discomfort of blocked vision when the rear surface of their lenses fog up, virtually blinding them. This can be uncomfortable, disturbing, or even dangerous. It can happen when stepping out in the cold, or when entering an air-conditioned environment, and it's most likely to happen during strenuous activity when the body is giving off more heat, and humidity gets trapped behind the lens.

Glacier Sun UV

Exclusive anti-reflective multi coating perfect for RX sunglasses. Prescription RX lenses (unlike plano sunglasses), are subject to internal reflections. Glacier SUN UV reduces reflections from the front and back surface of the lens and eliminates all these internal reflections as the antireflective coating lets light pass through the lens

Achromatic

Achromatic coating is BLOOM FREE unlike all other sunglass multi-coats! It is easy to clean due to anti-static, oleo and hydrophobic characteristics, high durability and scratch resistance, and UV protection with improved anti-reflection.

Mirror Coat

Mirror coatings are used for functional and aesthetic reasons. Functionally the double gradient mirror coating is used to reflect light from above and light reflected from the ground while allowing more light to pass through the center. The combination of a double gradient mirror coating and moderately dark solid tint and/or polarized lens delivers optimal direct visual acuity on sunny days with snow or other glare enhancing matter on the ground.

Lens colors
Solid

A solid tint is the same density throughout the lens. It has a solid color from the top to the bottom of the lens.

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses contain a special filter (film) that blocks horizontal reflected light, reducing glare (e.g. road on a hot day, surface of sea).

Mirrored

Are good for situations that require a reduction in the overall brilliance of light, such as sunlight on snow. They reflect light away from the eye (beyond the standard absorption of a tinted lens) which is ideal for people who are light-sensitive.

Gradient

Gradient lenses are permanently shaded from top to bottom or from top and bottom toward the middle. The gradient tint helps to shield your eyes from overhead sunlight, whilst the bottom part of the lens allows plenty of light through so that you can clearly see your dashboard.

Lens colors

Dark colors (brown/gray/green) are ideal for everyday use and most outdoor activities. Darker shades are intended primarily to cut through the glare and reduce eyestrain in moderate-to-bright conditions. Gray and green lenses won’t distort colors, while brown lenses may cause minor distortion.Light colors (yellow/gold/amber/rose/pink): These colors excel in moderate- to low-level light conditions. They are often great for skiing, snowboarding and other snow sports. They provide excellent depth perception, enhance contrasts in tricky, flat-light conditions, improve the visibility of objects and make your surroundings appear brighter.
