. About Our Lenses Types
1. Single Vision Lenses
2. Bifocal Lenses with a Line
3. Progressive Lenses without line
4. Polarized Lenses (Index 1.50)
Polarized lenses are used in sunglasses, to reduce glare from reflective surfaces such as the surface of a lake, the hood of a car. They accomplish this feat through a process called polarization, much like a venetian blind controls sunlight through a window.
5. Tint lenses
Tint lenses are colored lenses and opposed to the changeable photochromics, the colors are remains constant at all times. Tints are available on our glasses with the following colors: green, brown, grey, blue, purple, and pink (available 20%, 40%, 60% and 80%). Light tints are used primarily for fashion purposes to enhance a wearer's looks. Darker tints allow the wearer to use the lenses as sunglasses.
6. Photochromic lenses
Photochromic lenses are almost made of 1.56 Mid-index lens
The difference between photochromic lenses and ordinary colored lenses is that photochromic lenses can change from light to dark depending on the amount of ultraviolet light. This feature offers great comfort to wearers.Photochromic lenses come with built-in anti-scratch, and 100% UV protection
7. Available lenses index
We offer lenses with different index. The higher the prescription, the thinner and lighter the lens recommended.
Thinner Lenses (1.55 Middle Index lens)-Work with Low-to-moderate prescriptions of SPH (0 to +/-4.0) and CYL (0 to +/-2.0). If your prescription exceeds this range, we recommend you to upgrade your lens index. ( SPH 0-- +/- 4.00) (CYL 0 -- +/-2.0)
Super Thin Lenses (1.61 High Index lens)-It is suitable for prescriptions of SPH(+/-4.0 to +/-6.0 ),CYL(0 to +/-2.0). Meet people’s require for thin and light lenses . ( SPH +/- 4.00-- +/- 6.00) (CYL 0 -- +/-2.0)
Ultra Thin Lenses (High Index 1.67)- These lenses are suitable for prescriptions of SPH (+/-6.0 to +/-8.0), CYL (0 to +/-3.0). Meet people’s require for much thinner and lighter lenses . ( SPH +/- 6.00-- +/- 8.00) (CYL 0 -- +/-3.0)
Extreme Thin Lenses (High Index 1.74)- The thinnest and lightest lenses available on the optical market.These lenses are recommended for prescriptions of SPH above +/-8.0, CYL above +/-3.0. ( SPH +/- 8.00 --) (CYL +/-3.0 --)
. About Our Coatings
1. Anti-Scratch Coating;
Anti-Scratch coating for eyeglasses is a coating that is applied to lens surfaces. It helps to prevent minor scratches that can easily happen to a regular lens. These minor scratches can damage the surface of the lens and impair vision. An anti-scratch coating acts as a protective layer thus making the lenses more durable.
2. UV Coating
UV Coating is a beneficial lens treatment. It is an invisible dye that blocks ultraviolet (UV) light. Just as sunscreen keeps the sun's UV rays from harming your skin, UV-protective treatments for eyeglasses lenses block those same rays from damaging your eyes.
3. Anti-reflective coating for driving & Sport
As light encounters a lens three things happen. Some of the light passes through the lens, this is called refraction, some is absorbed and converted into heat energy (very small amounts) and the rest bounces off. When light bounces off the lens this creates glare. Glare or reflections can be annoying and in some severe cases can decrease visual acuity. To improve both the vision through the lenses and the appearance of the glasses, an anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating) is applied.
