3 KEY QUESTIONS FOR choosing lenses

 

The world of lenses is both complex and constantly changing. When choosing lenses you should ask three simple questions.

1. WHAT DESIGN?

The design for you depends primarily on your prescription. There are three main types of designs:

  • Progressive lens
  • Mid-distance lens
  • Single vision lens

 

2. WHAT MATERIAL?

The material for you depends on your prescription and frame. There are two types of materials:

  • Mineral (glass) materials offer thin but heavy lenses that break easily. These are becoming obsolete and being replaced by organic materials thanks to numerous advances over the years in terms of scratch-resistance and thinness. 
  • Organic (plastic) materials make it possible to make light, shock-resistant lenses. There are different plastic materials which are identified by their refractive index. In general, the higher the refractive index, the thinner and lighter the lenses. And the higher th preescription, the thicker the lens, which is why 

high index materials are recommended for stronger prescriptions.

 

3. WHICH TREATMENT?

Lenses can be treated during manufacturing which involves applying thin layers to the lens. There are several types of treatments that can influence the quality of your vision, lens durability, ease of care etc. Treatments include anti-reflective, tints and special photochromic layers.
