The Basic Lens - Polycarbonate
A light, impact-resistant material that is 25% thinner and 30% lighter than standard plastic (CR39) lenses, and 10 times more impact resistant than standard plastic lenses. Polycarbonate lenses include both 100% UV protection and anti-scratch coating.
Polycarbonate is the required material for all children’s eyeglasses and sports eyewear because of its safety qualities.
The Improved Lens – 1.60 Hi- Index
Our lens of choice for the majority of glasses wearers. Up to 55% flatter, 40% lighter and 36% thinner than standard plastic lenses. The properties of hi-index plastic provide superior vision, much improved over a traditional polycarbonate lens, with less distortion.
The lens material is less brittle and more pliable than polycarbonate, delivering a technologically advanced solution to today’s 3-piece drill mount systems and rimless styles.
1.60 hi-index lenses also include 100% UV protection, blocking UVA and UVB rays, and anti-scratch coating.
