Decide on single vision, bifocal or progressive lenses.
Usually your optometrist will have discussed this with you and it is detailed on your prescription.
Anti-reflective coatings & Scratch Resistance
All our lenses come standard with a Hoya VP anti-reflective coating which offers supreme scratch resistance, reduces glare and is easy to clean.
Bluelight Blocking Lenses
Hoya Bluecontrol lenses with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coating lenses are designed to block out harmful blue light from digital screens. Studies have demonstrated that blue light is a major cause of visual fatigue, eye strain and even retinal damage.
Transitions Generation 7 lenses with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coating react to UV light, making them clear indoors and tinted outdoors*. These are convenient for those who don't wish to carry an extra pair of sunglasses or are glare sensitive.
These are grey when they tint.
*Please note that these only tint slightly while in the car.
Polarised lenses are our recommended lens type for sunglasses as they offer maximum glare reduction as well as UV protection. We use premium Nupolar lenses which reduce light transmission by 85%, offering you the darkest legal tints for your sunglasses.
Choices are Green, Brown or Grey.
Tinted lenses are also 99.9% UV protectant, but do not offer the same level of glare reduction. They will still look the same from the outside observer. This is a lower cost option or for those who want more colour choices in their sunglasses lenses.
Choices are Green, Brown or Grey, Red, Pink, Blue, Purple, Yellow, Graduated (Gradient) Brown, Graduated Green, Graduated Grey, Graduated Blue in 85% tint intensities.
Hi Index lenses are 1.6 Index, which are 30% thinner and lighter than your standard.
Hi Index 1.67 lenses are 40% thinner and lighter than your standard lenses.
