Leaded Side Shields – Vinyl-Coated lead foil that provides 0.50mm lead equivalency lateral protection. The foil is hand-cut to conform to the inside of the temples. The foil is unobtrusive and will not affect vision or comfort.
Laser Name Labeling – Identify your glasses by having your name specially laser engraved on the glasses temple. Reduces the chance of someone mistakenly picking up your glasses. We use a high-resolution laser for crystal clear labeling. Enter your name or message as you would like it to appear on your glasses where it says “Enter your name here” (25 characters maximum, depending on frame) We will abbreviate the name or message if it cannot fit on the temple of the glasses.
Digital Lens Surfacing – Digital lenses are synonymous with what HD stands for because they too offer better visual picture and sharper definition throughout the entire visual surface of your lenses! It is important to understand the lens material for digital lenses is no different than the standard lens material. How the lens is manufactured is what sets digital lenses apart. To create these lenses an advanced digital technology is used to resurface the lens allowing for greater precision over the entire lens surface. This enables your prescription to be the exact same strength on the very outer edges of your lenses as it is in the middle. Surfacing the lenses this way provides you with more visual comfort, improved peripheral vision, sharper definition and less eye fatigue. Digital lenses also allow more versatility in lens shapes in regards to prescription so you are not limited on frame styles because of your prescription needs.
Scratch Coating – A clear, factory-applied hard coating that makes lenses more resistant to scratching. This coaing when combined with proper cleaning techniques will greatly improve the life of the lenses. Please note this coating will not prevent scratches.
UV Protection (Ultra Violet) – A coating on the lens that keeps the sun’s UV rays from harming our eyes. Overexposure to ultraviolet light is thought to be a cause of cataracts, retinal damage and other eye problems. Anti-UV treatment is not necessary on polycarbonate lenses because it is an inherent property of the material.
Anti-Fog Permanent Coating – Anti-fog permanent coating works by chemically affecting the adhesion of water molecules, preventing them grouping into larger clusters that can impair vision. If your glasses are frequently exposed to temperature changes or humid conditions, you’ll likely want an anti-fog coating to help combat condensation. The same goes for anyone who engages in strenuous activities such as physical labor, participation in sports, or exercise. Any activity that causes your body temperature to fluctuate will likely lead to lens fogging.
Anti-Reflective Coating – Anti-reflective coatings eliminate the distracting glare that can be produced by light when it reflects through your lenses. Anyone subjected to direct or indirect reflections – especially those who spend a lot of time around computers and electronic monitors of any type, suffer from eye strain, or who drive at night – will likely enjoy the benefits of glare reduction. Due to the high reflective properties of high index lenses, an anti-reflective coating is recommended, and is practically mandatory for high index lenses made of glass. (Note: AR coating is not good for outside glasses, dusty dirty environments and or constant cleaning.) The lenses must be wet before they are cleaned.
Anti-Reflective-Super Hydrophobic Coating (with Anti-Fog Properties) – Our Premium Anti-Reflective (AR) plus Super Hydrophobic coating is a premium A/R coating with a Super Hydrophobic topcoat that helps protect the A/R coating from the outside, encapsulating it in a manner that promotes longer Anti-Reflective life. Besides protecting the lens from water, the super hydrophobic coating makes the lens easier to clean. Hydrophobic anti-fog coatings work by repelling and spreading the fog moisture as it hits the lens. When the moisture spreads, it helps eliminate the fogging on the lens. The anti-fog properties can be made more robust by periodically applying an anti-fog solution.
Hard Storage Case – A zippered, hard-sided case to protect your glasses while storing and transporting. Light in weight and covered in a black Ballastic-like Nylon, this case helps prevent scratching and breakage. Lined with a soft, velvet-like material. Water resistant.
Anti-Fog Lens Cleaning Solution – A specially formulated cleaning solution for use on plastic, polycarbonate or glass lenses. Safely cleans optics and adds an Anti-Fog coating to the lenses that helps prevent fogging.
Transitions Tint: Gray or Brown – A photo chromic lens (a lens that changes from light to dark depending on the amount of UV light available) that provides convenient protection from UV radiation and glare.
American Gray Tint G-15: – Classis Gray/Green sunglass tint (non-polarized).
DriveWear Tint: – The first photochromic lenses to darken behind the windshield of a car, allowing Drivewear to change color based on current driving conditions in order to enhance the driver’s vision. In addition, Drivewear lenses are polarized to block blinding glare, another distinct advantage when driving a car. Please note that DriveWear coated lenses will remain dark indoors, like sunglasses.
Transitions Xtractive: In response to consumer requests for darker transitional lenses, Transitions Xtractive lenses are designed not only to provide all-day light protection but also to offer more light blockage than ever before. When the sun is out, they adjust to a darker tint level than photochromic lenses have, to date, been able to attain. The darker tint extends to usage inside, too rather than remain purely clear indoors, Xtractive lenses maintain a hint a tint to provide comfortable vision around harsh artificial light. Additionally, Xtractive lenses darken behind the windshield of your car, just as DriveWear lenses do another benefit provided by the Transitions research and development team. Not even hot weather a condition that can slow the transition process of lenses affects Xtractive lenses, as they have been treated to quickly morph despite the temperature.
Transitions Vantage: The Transitions Vantage lens system introduces variable polarization to the photochromic process. They still adapt to changing light but also polarize as they do so. If you have ever seen a bright, sunny outdoor day through polarized lenses, you know the difference they make in visual clarity, acuity, contrast enhancement, and glare reduction; the reason is a design that blocks horizontal light rays. Transitions Vantage lenses provide variable polarization without sacrificing the darken-lighten cycle that makes photochromic lenses so popular. No longer do you need to choose between the advantages of photochromics and polarization; the benefits of both are combined in Vantage lenses.
