Ophthalmic lens technology has advanced to cater the varying needs of visual correction. There are more than a few types of spectacle lenses to choose from to fit the conditions of your activities.
If you need a spectacle prescription, there are several factors to consider when choosing the right lenses for you:
The types of lenses you choose depend on whether you want the spectacles to suit all activities or a single activity.
If you are under age 40 and need a prescription glasses, then single vision lenses may be sufficient enough for your visual correction. Single vision lenses have the same focal power throughout the lens to provide a single focus. Single vision could mean eyeglasses just for driving, or just computer or reading only.
Progressive lenses provide a gradual transition in power within the lens to view all distance from near at hand to far across the room. If you are in your 40s or older and have presbyopia, wearing progressive lenses have an advantage to see all distances clearly without having to purchase single vision eyeglasses for both near far and in-between (computer distance for examples. They can provide all three fields within one lens.
Standard plastic lenses, also known as 1.49 or 1.50 index or CR-39 is the most commonly used material for lower power prescriptions.
Mid-Index lenses range in material index from 1.53 to 1.56. This material is thinner and lighter than standard plastic lenses.
High-Index lenses have a material index of 1.59 like Polycarbonate or 1.60. They are thinner than mid-index and an excellent option for a thinner look in lenses or for rimless frames (known as drill mount frame) where the thickness at the edges of the lenses is more apparent.
Lens material index from 1.67 to 1.74: the highest index currently available. Ultra High-Index lenses are the thinnest and lightest materials currently available for higher power prescriptions. You will find them on our website as Super Thin (1.67) or Ultra Thin (1.74). Remember, the higher the material index the thinner the lens. We offer them at affordable prices.
