Spectacle Lens Information
Below is a small overview on spectacle lens information to help you make the best decision on which eyewear you might require.
Anti-reflective coatings can reduce the unsightly reflections from the surface of the lenses, as well as minimise the irritating reflections experienced by the wearer and make spectacle lens wear clearer and more comfortable than ever before.
Lens Thickness/Hi-index lenses:
Hi-index lenses are useful in reducing the thickness of lenses with high prescription, thus allowing the wearer to enjoy slimmer and more fashionable looking eyewear.
Spectacle lens tints are often considered to be just a fashion statement or perhaps purely for wearing as sunglasses to reduce glare. There are, however, many functional aspects of tints such as to increase contrast and reducing eyestain.
Photochromic lenses are lenses that darken when exposed to UV radiation, such as outdoor sunlight.
Polarised lenses have been specially treated to reduce the glare from certain reflective surfaces, for instance, water, sand and roads. Polarisation reduces the brightness and glare of light. Suitable for driving and outdoor activities.
