GLASSES FOR RECREATION & OCCUPATION
occupations and hobbies impose demanding visual requirements,
especially for those who need bifocals or trifocals. Special
occupational designs are available to solve these special needs. If
you have visual demands that your glasses cannot meet, please let us
know so we can also make recommendations for your eye wear to suit
your specific situation and needs.
to our increased computer demands, numerous lens designs have been
made available to enhance vision at computer and reading viewing
distances. Computer screen filters, workstation ergonomic design and
anti-reflection coatings can help make working on the computer easier
and more comfortable. We can prescribe computer lenses to optimize
your comfort and performance while on the computer and working at your
lens designs and material are available for the unique needs of
athletes--both adults and children. These include wrap-around
sunglasses to protect from wind and dust for bikers and runners and
fashionable light weight frames for basketball and football players.
Also, specific colored and tinted lenses can enhance contrast for
hunters and golfers. Sports glasses are made from more durable
plastics for safety and comfort, while polycarbonate lenses are impact
resistance for safety and better eye protrection.
ultraviolet (UV) rays damage our eyes and over time will cause macular
degeneration, a common cause of blindness. Therefore, medical
grade sunwear is important to anyone who values their eyesight.
Polarized lenses are the best and safest sunglass choice, providing
the most protection from ultraviolet rays. (Inexpensive,
over-the-counter sunglasses sold in department stores are ineffective
in blocking UV rays.) Polarized glasses are particularly a necessity
for those who are light sensitive, virtually eliminating reflected
glare. People who spend a lot of time outdoors--drivers, pilots,
fishermen, skiers, and boaters--find polarized lenses increase
visibility and comfort better than any other type of sunwear.
has expanded and increased the quality of both lens materials and
designs over the last few years. This means that you have more choices
than ever before to provide you with the best vision possible.
We want you to better understand each lens material and design. Please
take a few moments to view the sections below to understand the
options available to you.
the best choice of small prescriptions
lenses have many benefits. They are more impact resistant, half
the weight of glass lenses, and can be tinted to almost any color.
However, plastic lenses are more easily scratched than glass but can
have an optional scratch protection coat applied to protect them from
Aspheric Lenses, the best choice for strong prescriptions
technology has created lenses that bend light differently so that
stronger corrections are thinner than when made in conventional
materials. Such lenses are called "high index" and
higher prescriptions are more attractive because they are slimmer.
They are also more comfortable than glasses lenses because they weigh
less. High index lenses with anti-reflection coating will provide the
best vision and appearance of lenses possible.
impact resistant for children, athletes, and active
lenses are the most impact resistant lenses available and are always
the safest choice for children and athletes and those in active
occupations where there is risk of accidents that could shatter
lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are a special type of high index
lens. Light and comfortable, they absorb all harmful UV light
and can be made with ultra thin edges because of their unique
maximum scratch resistance
years glass was the only lens material available to patients. Glass
still offers superior optics and is the most scratch-resistant
material. The primary disadvantage of glass is its weight, generally
twice that of plastic lenses. Glass lenses can also shatter when
scratched and are not recommended for the active individual.
vision lenses function as all purpose glasses for persons who have
normal focusing. Those who normally wear bifocals or trifocals
sometimes prefer to wear single vision lenses for certain activities;
for instance, a single vision lens for driving and another for the
computer. Single vision lenses are available in all lens materials.
Bifocals provide two separate prescriptions, usually for distance and
near vision clarity. The flat top bifocal is the most common form, but
bifocals are also available in
round "thumbprint" styles that have the added cosmetic value
of being nearly invisible when the glasses are on the face.
trifocals provide three separate zones of clear vision: distance,
intermediate and near. The added segment provides clear vision at
arm's length distance, the area that is usually blurred for bifocal
These lenses provide all
the benefits of bifocals but add the feature of continuous clear
vision at all distances, including mid-range distance (arm's length).
Progressives also have the cosmetic advantage of appearing to be
single vision lenses. Advances in progressive lens design make them
the lens of choice.
to improve the comfort and appearance of
your new lenses
weight hard resin lenses can be more easily scratched than glass
lenses. Special coatings have been developed to help protect lenses
from normal scratching. Most lens material types come with a scratch
resistant coating at no additional charge. However, for lenses that do
not come with this type of coating, the modest additional cost for
scratch coating is usually a prudent investment.
lenses darken in sun light and lighten when indoors. These lenses are
perfect for people who would prefer to meet as many of their needs as
possible with one pair of glasses. They come in a variety of tints.
one should be without anti-reflective coatings on their glasses.
First, anti-reflective coatings provide superior optics giving the
lens wearer the clearest vision possible. Second, they reduce eye
fatigue and discomfort, especially from glare of overhead lights,
computer monitors, and lights during night driving. Other benefits
include providing the wearer with a better cosmetic appearance and
easier eye contact. Because of the coatings, those looking at you will
be better able to see your eyes and they will be less distracted by
glare from your lenses.
for your Lenses
so many specially designed lenses offered to maximize your vision, it
is important to properly maintain your lenses by keeping them cleaned
and scratch free. We provide everyone who orders glasses a specially
made optical cloth of superfine high thread-count fibers to ensure the
best care of your lenses and frames.
deeper cleaning, use a single drop of non-lotioned dishwashing liquid
and lots of water to create a foam you can use to wash your glasses,
frame and all, with your hands. Only rub your lenses while your hands
are wet. Rinse thoroughly, dry the frame with a cotton cloth, then
blot and gently wipe the lens with the special lint-free cotton cloth
we provide. Avoid paper products such as tissue, paper towels, or
toilet paper since the wood fibers in them can cause very fine
scratches on the lens over time. If you must use something and do not
have your optical cloth, T-shirts can be used as an emergency

pads, plus extensive frame and lens warranties.
