Polycarbonate Lenses

All of the complete pair eyeglasses are made using polycarbonate lenses; the lightest, most impact-resistant material made. With an index of refraction of 1.59, they are much thinner than standard (CR39) optical lenses. They also come with both 100% UV and tough scratch-resistant coatings applied to both sides of the lenses, as well as polished lens edges, at no extra charge.

Polarized Polycarbonate Lenses

Polarized lenses have filters that block out reflected light. They help eliminate the glare caused by reflections in horizontal surfaces, which makes them ideal for driving and water activities. Filtering the incoming light, rather than making it darker, leads to much sharper vision and better ability to see color. Polarized lenses have natural UV protective qualities and then we apply our tough scratch resistant coating to both of the lens surfaces.

Polycarbonate is some of the lightest and most impact resistant materials made today. Having an index of refraction of 1.59 polycarbonate is thinner than standard CR39 optical eyeglass lenses. They are ideal for kids or people with active lifestyles.

These lenses are recommended for eyeglass prescription ranges from between +/-4.00, and/or cylinder ranges between +/-2.50. These lenses can still be used for higher prescription levels up to +4.00/-8.00, by performing custom surfacing to the lenses.

You can order any of our frames as prescription sunglasses. The frames can be ordered as either prescription or non-prescription sunglasses. We take it one step further by offering them in bifocal sunglasses also.

Kids Frames

All of the kids eyeglass frames are extremely durable and are designed to last. We did not want that extra strength to come at the expense of the look and style. Parents compliment our glasses, because their children love the way they look in them. With prices under $50 for your kids eyeglasses you will not have to watch your household budget if they get lost or broken. If your kids are particularly hard on their eyeglasses, check out our large selection of bendable titanium frames.

Before shipping every pair of glasses is inspected by a certified technician to ensure the accuracy of the prescription. They are shipped in an attractive and durable hard case for protection. We have an unconditionally guarantee all our eyeglass frames and lenses to be delivered exactly as ordered and free of any defects.

Note: add 50% of the purchase price above $39.00 if applicable to your order.

Computer Vision Syndrome Computer reading glasses.

If you have to spend a great deal of time in front of a computer screen, like so many of us today, you may have Computer Vision Syndrome. After a long day of working on the computer do your eyes feel tired, irritated, red, and do you get headaches?

If your answer is yes, then it is possible that you may suffer from what doctors now commonly refer to as Computer Vision Syndrome or CVS. Believe it or not, more than one hundred million people a year visit their eye care professional for this computer vision problem.

Most eye care professionals now agree that one of the effective ways to treat this computer vision problem and condition is to have an anti-reflective coating on your glasses. This anti-reflective coating significantly decreases your eyestrain and increases visual comfort by blocking glare from your computer screen. This glare is one of the main causes of Computer Vision Syndrome. These anti- reflective lenses are also outstanding at reducing the glare at night from car headlights and many other bright lights.

This coating also puts a nice finish on any lenses that can eliminate reflection. So when someone looks at you they will see your eyes and not the light reflecting off of your lenses.

Myopia or Nearsightedness

Myopia is an eye condition in which light rays entering the eye come to a focus in front of the retina. This means that objects can be seen distinctly only when very close to the eyes, while objects at that are at a distance may appear blurry. Myopia can be treated with prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery.

Hyperopia or Farsightedness

Hyperopia is an eye condition in which light rays entering the eye come to a focus behind the retina. This means that objects appear clearer at a distance than up close. People having hyperopia may often complain of headaches when reading, using their computer, or other close up visual situations. Hyperopia is commonly treated with prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is an eye condition in which light rays entering the eye come to a focus in two different locations near the retina. This is caused by two different corneal curvatures, which in turn cause two focus points. This means depending on the magnitude and severity of the astigmatism, that objects may appear blurry at all distances. Astigmatism may be treated with prescription eyeglasses, RGP or hard contact lenses, soft toric contact lenses, or even refractive surgery.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is an eye condition in which light rays from a near object from come to a focus behind the retina. This is very close to hyperopia, but the difference is that this condition results from a decreased ability for the lens to focus, which is called commonly called accommodation, and happens as we get older. Very often presbyopia can become symptomatic at around 40 years old of age. Presbyopia may be treated with eyeglasses, either bifocals or, more commonly, dedicated reading glasses.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration Disease

Age-related macular degeneration or AMD is a disease that affects your central vision. AMD is a common cause of vision loss for persons of 60 years old of age. The center of your vision is usually only affected for AMD. Most people will not go blind from age-related macular degeneration disease. It can sometimes make it difficult to read, drive, or to do other daily functions that need fine central vision.

The macula is in the center of the of the eyes retina. The macula is the light sensitive tissue layer in the back of the eye. When you read the light is focused at your macula. Millions of cells change this light into the nerve signals that then communicate to the brain what you are now seeing. This is what is commonly called your central vision.

Measuring Pupillary Distance or PD

Pupillary Distance measurement is used correctly position the lenses within the eyeglass frame have selected. Have someone measure the distance from the center of the pupil in one eye to the center of the pupil in your other eye.

To measure your pupillary distance:

Place the millimeter ruler on the bridge of your nose, and have your friend measure the distance between the center of your pupils, or try to do it yourself by looking in the mirror. As a general estimate many adults have a pupillary distance between 54 and 66, and many kids can be between 41 and 55.

Other Types of Lenses

We offer several other types of lense styles a small price increase instead of charging the full list price. Here are some of the different lense styles and options available.

Seiko® 1.67 Super-High Index Lenses

Seiko® 1.67 lenses are our lens of choice for those with very high prescriptions. They are thinner than any other 1.60/1.66 "high-index" or "thinnest" lenses others may sell. If you've never had 1.67-index lenses before, you'll be surprised how thin your eyeglass lenses can be! They also come with both 100% UV and tough scratch-resistant coatings applied to both sides of the lenses, as well as polished lens edges, at no extra charge. Though they are generally recommended for prescriptions above +4.00/-6.00, they can make any prescription over +/-3.00 (especially in larger frames) look great! Sun Lenses

Tinted CR39 Sun Lenses

Sometimes referred to as hard-resin, our standard sun lenses are made using the highest optical-grade CR39 lenses. In addition to its fantastic optical clarity, CR39 can be tinted much darker than polycarbonate (which is why we use it). In addition to the tinting, we apply 100% UV-protective and tough scratch-resistant coatings to both sides of the lenses. CR39 is recommended for low-to-moderate prescriptions, between +3.00 and -4.00.
