Find the Right Lenses using our Lens Finder
Lenses to fit your lifestyle

Choosing the right lens depends on your prescription, personal preference, and lifestyle. Whether your prescription specifies Single Vision, Bifocals, Trifocals, or No-line Bifocals, our Eyewear Specialists are trained to provide you with lens options that best meet your visual needs as well as your personal preferences.

Lens Types

We understand that each patient is unique in their eye care needs; therefore we offer a wide variety of lenses, materials and lens enhancements specific to each individual. Finding the right lens can actually enhance your lifestyle.

Single Vision Lenses

Single vision lenses offer correction for people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or need help with reading.

Multifocal Lenses

A multifocal lens combines two or more focal points into one lens. This allows a person to view objects near, far and in between all in one lens. Multifocal lenses are available in bifocals, trifocals and no-line progressive bifocals.

No-Line Bifocal Lenses

No-line bifocal or progressive lenses offer all the benefits of a multifocal lens without the visibility of lines on the lens.

Plano Lenses

Almost all our frames can be purchased with plano lenses, giving you both fashion appeal and lens treatments that fit your lifestyle - even if you don't need vision correction.

Lens Materials

Durable, scratch resistant and shatter resistant lenses are a standard choice for sports, children’s and safety glasses.

CR-39 Plastic

Standard plastic lenses offer sharp optics for basic prescriptions at an opening price point.


Superior optics in a super lightweight lens, these slim high definition lenses are a great choice for higher prescriptions and those seeking premium quality vision.


Super lightweight and ultrathin, these lenses are a good option for higher prescriptions.

Lens Treatment

Lens treatments can provide you with better vision and improve the life of your eyeglasses lenses.

Scratch Resistant Coating

Most eyeglass lenses today include a scratch resistant coating to help protect against damage. The hard coating or scratch coating is great for children and is standard on polycarbonate lenses.

Mirror Coatings

Highly reflective reflex mirror coatings prevent the eyes of the wearer from being seen by others and are a great way to add some flavor to a pair of prescription sunglasses.

Ultraviolet Treatment

The application of an ultraviolet treatment helps protect the eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. This treatment is simple and quick to apply to most plastic eyeglass lenses without affecting the appearance. Several lens materials such as polycarbonate, hi-index and trivex do not require an additional UV treatment due to the inherent property of the lens material.

A lens rating of E-SPF 25® means that an eye protected by the lens will receive 25times less UV exposure than an unprotected eye. Ask your eyewear specialist for the right lens material for this maximum UV protection.
