We have a complete lens finishing lab on site.  By using leading edge computerized lens fabricating systems, we routinely create beautiful and precise eye wear for our patients.

The heart of our lab is out state of the art lens edger and frame tracing system.  The edger is driven by the latest in computer software, allows for unparalleled precision and accuracy.  The ‘frame tracer’ measures the frame size and shape at hundreds of individual points ‘allowing for very precise accuracy in size and shape of the prescription lenses being fabricated.  Almost all lens types and frame creations can be processed one site.

What is Anti-Reflective Coating on Lenses?

A chemical coating applied to eyeglass lenses to reduce surface reflections.

What is a Bifocal Lens?

Lenses of Eyeglasses that have two distinct areas of focus. The prescription in the top portion helps to see distant objects while the prescription in the bottom portion of the lens helps to see near objects.

What is a Trifocal Lens?

Eyeglass lens that incorporates three lenses of different powers. The main portion is usually focused for distance (20 ft.), the center segment for about 2 ft., and the lower segment for near (14 in.).

What are Progressive Lenses?

A no-line computer designed multi-focal lens with a continuous viewing range from near (12 to 16 inches) to intermediate (18 to 48 inches) to distance (beyond 48 inches). New digital surfacing production techniques allow for a decrease in peripheral side vision distortion. Technology has greatly improved progressive lens design to widen both the near and intermediate portion of the lens.

What are Polarized Lenses?

Polarized lenses in particular are popular with those who play water and snow sports. In sports and other outdoor leisure activities we react to what we see. We see by virtue of the light that enters our eyes. Without good sun wear, brightness and glare will diminish our best efforts. Glare results in a loss of visual performance, which is produced when an object or light source in the field-of-vision is brighter than the amount of light to which the eyes are adapted. Most tinted lenses will provide some absorption to dampen brightness, but only a polarized lens can effectively eliminate blinding glare.

Do I still need those “UV Protective” sunglasses if my lenses are real dark?

Yes! Most people believe that the darkness of the lens is what protects their eyes. The degree of darkness has no effect on UV rays. For adequate protection, you need to buy sunglasses that indicate they block 100 percent of the sun’s UV rays.

Are impact-resistant lenses necessary?

The FDA requires all sun glass lenses to be impact-resistant. If you play sports or wear sunglasses on the job, you might want to consider ultra-impact-resistant poly-carbonate lenses for even greater eye safety.
