Your eyeglasses, prescribed by our optometrist, Dr. Edward Soss, and filled at our West Portal eyeglass store, are designed to help you see better, but also to make you feel comfortable and to meet your specific needs. We offer a host of different options when it comes to eyeglass lenses. With choices that include polycarbonate lenses, Trivex, polarized, tinted, and bifocal, you are certain to find exactly what you want and have it crafted just for you.
Polycarbonate lenses are designed with practicality in mind. They are for you if you put yourself through the paces and wear your eyeglasses when you do. Do you work in a field where your eyeglasses can be easily scratched or broken? Perhaps you engage in athletic activities or have hobbies that are very physical. Or maybe you are getting eyeglasses for your child and you worry about the durability of their lenses. Polycarbonates from our West Portal eyeglass store are tough lenses that are resistant to impact. They are the perfect selection if you need lenses that are strong and resilient. In a similar vein, Trivex are also strong and impact resistant. They are also lightweight and thin. Some people find that they do a better job of vision correction than do polycarbonates. Our optician will discuss this with you and help you to make the proper choice.
Polarized lenses reduce the effect of sun glare. They come in particularly handy when driving, boating, or engaging in sports. Tinted lenses, available at our West Portal eyeglass store in a variety of shades to suit any taste or style, give you protection from the sun while satisfying your desire to be fashionable.
Bifocal lenses, which correct two vision concerns at the same time, are separated into two parts- the upper and the lower. Each corrects one of your vision problems. Traditionally, they have a thin line that separates the two parts of the lens, but there are newer no line bifocals available as well. Trifocal and multifocal lenses are available as well. The ones mentioned here are not the only options either. Our West Portal eyeglass store offers transition frames, non-glare, anti-reflection, 1.67 and 1.74 index, progressives, flattop, mirror coating, and ultra violet lenses as well. We are your one source for all your lens needs.
