Contact Lens Info
For lens options, we always offer industry leading technology at competitive prices. Many discount warehouses, chain stores with optical departments or mall stores offer last year or older technology for the same or even greater price. Because of the complexity of today's lenses, there are things that cannot just be done in an hour. Protective and functional lens coats, like anti-reflection, must be applied carefully and this takes time. As such, we take great care with our lab partners to deliver you the best value your dollar can buy.
Transitions Vantage is a lens we're excited about right now. The photochromic lens that goes light to dark with UV exposure, has been around for a while and continues to improve annually. Now, they've released a lens that gets more polarized as it darkens. The scientists at Transitions have figured a way to get the molecules that darken to line up in a row, essentially creating a direction filter that behaves like a static, full-time polarized filter you'd find in many sunglasses. The addition glare reduction is perfect for those on the water or anyone desiring glare protection as well as photochromic lenses.
If you need light-changing lenses but have been discouraged in the past that they don't activate behind the UV treated car windshield, there's a solution for that as well. Ask our opticians about DriveWear.
