Eyeglasses Q & A

What types of lenses are available for my new eyeglasses?

Selecting lenses that correct your vision, reduce glare, and feel light on your face can make a big difference in how satisfied you are with your new eyeglasses. You may spend time picking out frames that look great, but be sure to consider the different types of lenses that are available as well. With today’s digital technology, there are several options to choose from, including:

  • Lightweight plastic lenses
  • Impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses
  • Thin, high-index plastic lenses
  • Thin, lightweight, impact-resistant Trivex lenses
  • Aspheric lenses
  • Photochromic lenses that become darker in sunlight
  • Bifocals, trifocals, and progressive lenses

You can also add anti-reflective coatings to reduce glare, reflections, and the appearance of halos around lights, and many lenses are scratch-resistant as well. The knowledgeable team at Whitson Vision advises you on which lenses are best for your prescription, lifestyle, and other factors to keep your eyes safe and help you see as clearly as possible.
