Lens Technology

As our lives become more complicated, the need for multiple pairs of glasses becomes a reality. The lenses we wear today are made of complex materials and manufactured using the latest high-tech digital equipment. Lenses are many times thinner and much stronger than their older counterparts due to high index materials.

Mobile devices and computer screens now demand so much of our vision that technological changes are necessary with our glasses. High energy visible (HEV) light, better known as Blue Light, is emitted from our tablets, smart phones, and computer screens. Blue light deeply penetrates the human eye and can result in retina damage and macular degeneration (AMD). That’s why we offer blue light filters on our lenses, to reduce the effects of damaging HEV light.

We can also add anti-reflective (AR) coatings on lenses to reduce unwanted glare from anything to the sun to street lights. The new generation of photochromic lenses gets darker quicker and lightens quicker than the early photochromic materials. Frames are now composed of ultra light weight titanium which does not corrode and memory metals which bend and flex.

New progressive bifocals feature built-in ultraviolet protection with no lines. Most lens styles are also available in polarized sun lenses to eliminate glare when driving or on the water. Increased visual demands and high-tech advances in eye wear provide many options for task-specific lenses and frames: dress frames, casual wear frames, sports frames, and sunglasses frames, all as individual as your visual needs.

In addition to dress eye wear, we have task orientated glasses for use with computers. Safety materials such as polycarbonate are used in sports vision glasses. Tinted and polarized lenses are used for fishing and hunting.

We proudly manufacture your lenses in our own lab to ensure the finest quality, with all these technological features available. Remember to call us for your next pair of glasses and we’ll demonstrate all the benefits that these features have to offer you!
