If you are thinking about getting a new pair of eyeglasses, visit us at our vision practice, General Vision Express/Lens Lab. You will find that our optical store is an excellent place to purchase your next pair of Bushwick eyeglasses because not only do we offer an exciting selection of designer eyeglass frames, but we also have many different eyeglass lens options available.
Today there are many different types of lens options for your Bushwick eyeglasses. Our optician will be happy to discuss the different lens options with you, and let you know which will work best with your prescription and lifestyle needs. Among the different lens options that are commonly used today are polycarbonate lenses, Trivex lenses, high index plastic lenses, progressive lenses, aspheric lenses, and photochromic lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are impact-resistant and are commonly used in eyeglasses if you play sports, or work at a job where your eyeglasses could be easily damaged. Polycarbonate lenses are also a great choice for kids’ eyeglasses since they are stronger and can stand up to a kid’s rough treatment. Polycarbonate lenses also have built-in UV protection so they will keep your eyes safe from the sun. Trivex lenses are similar to polycarbonate lenses; they are impact-resistant, and are extremely lightweight and thin. Trivex lenses can be great for people who have stronger prescriptions, but do not want to have thick lenses in their glasses. High-index plastic lenses are also lighter and thinner than other lenses. Aspheric lenses need less curvature so some prescriptions can now have a thinner and flatter lens. This not only provides a greater field of vision, but also makes for more attractive glasses. Photochromic lenses will darken when they are exposed to sunlight. Some patients will use these instead of sunglasses. Progressive lenses allow for more than one lens prescription in the lens; there are no telltale lines of delineation. Progressive lenses are extremely attractive and functional.
We look forward to seeing you the next time you purchase Bushwick eyeglasses.
