About Prescription Lenses

There are many exciting advances in the designs and materials for spectacle lenses:

  • High Index Materials – for thinner and lighter lenses
  • Anti-Reflective Coating – eliminate reflections and reduce eye strain
  • Aspheric Lens Designs – for flatter and thinner lenses
  • UV-Blockers – to prevent the transmission of harmful Ultra Violet Radiation
  • Photosensitive Materials – that change colour and darken in response to sunlight
  • Progressive Lenses – for people who would otherwise need bifocals
  • Occupational Lenses – with special designs for different tasks, like computer operators

Together these provide for thinner and lighter lenses, offering improved optics and sight correction which is more natural.

Progressive lenses

One of the newest innovations in lens technology are Progressive lenses. Progressive lenses are designed so that the distance prescription is used during straight-ahead gaze and the reading prescription during down-gaze. This then provides a more natural vision without any lines in the lens.


Drivewear lenses

Drivewear lenses provide glare protection through polarization and enhance and protect vision through photochromics which respond to both visible and UV light. By combining the strengths of two of the most important technologies in eyewear today we have developed the lens of tomorrow, Drivewear.

Drivewear is powered by using two of the most advanced technologies found in the eyeglass industry today: Transitions® Photochromic Technology and NuPolar® polarization technology.







Transition lenses

Transitions lenses help preserve the health and wellness of your eyes for the future by blocking 100% of harmful UV rays, so you can see better tomorrow too.

If you wear regular clear lenses, the glare of the sun can cause you to squint and strain your eyes and make it difficult to see objects clearly in bright light. Through advanced technology, Transitions lenses give you the benefits of clear lenses indoors and at night, plus distinct advantages of sunglasses outdoors – all in the convenience of one lens.

Transitions lenses are clear indoors and at night but automatically adjust their level of tint to changing light conditions outdoors. They provide visual comfort and quality at any and every moment, helping you to see better today..

How they work

Transitions lenses are clear indoors and at night. And thanks to advanced technology, they quickly darken when you go outdoors. Step back inside and they quickly fade back to clear. Transitions lenses begin to darken the instant they are exposed to UV light. The greater the intensity of the UV rays, the darker the lenses become. The moment UV rays are no longer present the lenses immediately begin to fade back to their clear state. Most wearers report that the adjustment happens so quickly and smoothly, they are unaware of it. But they remain aware of the visual comfort the lenses continue to provide in any light.

Protection is always in style.

Transitions lenses are compatible with virtually all frame styles, including the latest fashion frames. And they’re available in most types of lens materials and designs – from plastic to shatter resistant materials like polycarbonate and Trivex materials, and from single-vision lenses to bifocals, multi-focals and progressive lenses. With the help of your eyecare professional, you’re sure to find the Transitions lenses that provide the everyday convenient protection, visual quality and visual comfort you are looking for.
