Our philosophy when prescribing glasses is to educate you on the differences in design and quality of lenses available. Superior quality lenses are typically available through large labs and can not be made in just a couple of hours. Some commercial stores offer lenses in an hour or so, but you must understand that you are not receiving the best quality lenses available on the market. We use these larger labs to ensure the best quality lenses. You will not receive these lenses in one hour but we believe the wait is well worth it.

Anti-Reflective Coating (also know as anti-glare)

Crizal anti-reflection lenses help you see and look your best. In simple terms ,the coating is actually layers of filters on the front and back surface of lenses that allow all of the light to pass through the lens instead of bouncing back as reflection. They are durable, easy to clean, and resist surface static. The most important feature is that the filter increases the amount of light that passes through the lens so you see better, clearer and sharper than before. Anti-reflective coatings make your lenses look almost invisible. from your wardrobe.

Crizal Avance with ScotchGuard

The latest technology in an antireflective lens that offers a 1 year warranty against scratches. This lens ensures the clearest vision by reducing:

  • GLARE caused by reflections, especially at night or when working on computers
  • SCRATCHES which reduce visual discomfort
  • SMUDGES which diffuse light as it hits the lens and blur your vision
  • DUST which can be an obstacle to sharp vision
  • WATER DROPS which distort vision

No-Line Bifocals

No-line progressive bifiocals by Varilux allow you to see better because they provide clear, comfortable vision at all distances. There are no age-telling lines on the Varilux lenses so no one needs to know you are wearing bifocals. High-performance digital lenses by Varilux give you the best clarity and fit possible.A for sports and safety and work best with most rimless frame styles. Think about your lifestyle needs and ask if these are missing from your wardrobe.

Polarized lenses

Squint no more! In simplest terms a polarized lens is a high tech sunglass filter that eliminates glare and allows light to pass through the lens in only one direction (like miniblinds). It also provides 100% UV protection for your eyes. Without doubt, it’s the lens of choice for driving, fishing, and skiing, golfing and all sunny outdoor activities.

Polycarbonate

They are the strongest of all the optical lenses, these are recommended by the FDA for sports and safety and work best with most rimless frame styles. Think about your lifestyle needs and ask if these are missing from your wardrobe.

Computer Lenses

These new technology lenses are designed for your eyes to relax at the computer. They are designed to give you comfort and vision for close and intermediate distances. While these lenses are primarily designed for computer use, they work great for anyone requiring clear intermediate and near vision, such as musicians, architects, accountants, surgeons, and many others. They are available in plastic, glass and polycarbonate, single vision as well as progressive lenses too.

No-Line Progressive Lenses

Distance, intermediate and reading prescriptions in one pair of glasses for all your vision needs. The technology behind these lenses has evolved to precision so virtually anyone can now comfortably wear their progressives all day with absolute natural ease.

Customized Progressive Lenses

These progressive lenses are the first lenses to be designed specifically and uniquely for each individual wearer. We will measure your head and eye measurements and Rx parameters and design completely customized progressive lenses just for you.

Hi-Index Lenses

These thin lenses come in wide range of choices, especially for strong prescriptions, but all are basically flatter front curves, resulting in thinner lighter lenses. They offer superior optics and can be easily used when rimless and thinner metal frames are being worn.

Transitions®

Transitions Changeable lenses make your eyes more comfortable because they are designed to adapt to any light. They darken in the sunlight and lighten back to clear indoors.

Single Vision Lenses:

Single vision lenses provide the best visual solution for those who experience either of the following:

  • Have trouble seeing far away
  • Have trouble seeing up close

Quality Eyeglasses Take a Little Extra Time and Expertise.

If some other optical providers offer One Hour Service, why should you wait? The most common problem we encounter is a patient unhappy with their glasses made at a discounted eyeglass facility. A high quality pair of eyeglasses can’t be delivered in a “fast food” style.
