Eyeglass and Contact Lens Technology
Complete Eyeglass Service
We offer the latest in lens technology with Varilux progressive lenses, Crizal Anti-Reflective coatings, Transitions lenses and prescription polarized sun wear.
As part of our professional service, we offer this easy to understand review of modern lens technology that is available for your new eye wear.
Lighter, Thinner Lenses
High index lenses,which are thinner and lighter are recommended for stronger prescriptions.
Transition lenses darken as you go from indoors to outdoors. Transitions are available in a variety of materials.
Polycarbonate lenses are the most impact resistant lenses available. Polycarbonate is the lens of choice for children and active patients. Polycarbonate lenses are light, and comfortable. They absorb all harmful UV light and can be made with ultra thin edges because of their unique strength.
Progressives (no line bifocals)
Progressive lenses provide all the benefits of bifocals but add the feature of continuous clear vision at all distances, including mid-range distance (arm’s length). Progressive lenses have the cosmetic advantage of appearing to be single vision lenses. Progressives are available in all lens materials. Bob Morris Opticians highly recommends Varilux progressive lens products.
Polarized Sun Lenses
Polarized sunglasses eliminate reflected glare. Polarized sunglasses are appropriate for all types of outdoor activities especially golf, fishing, hunting and everyday driving.
Scratch Protection Coating
Light weight hard resin lenses can be more easily scratched than glass lenses. Special coatings have been developed to help protect lenses from normal scratching. The modest additional cost for such scratch coating is usually a prudent investment.
It is generally accepted that the ultraviolet rays in sunlight pose potential harm to the eyes. Special treatment is available for lenses that completely blocks hazardous UV light. Polycarbonate and high index include built-in UV protection.
Special anti-reflective coatings are available for spectacle lenses, much like those used on premium camera lenses. Anti Reflective coatings are effective in reducing eye fatigue for computer operators and anyone driving at night. Anti Reflective lenses enhance the wearer’s appearance by removing all distracting reflections from the surfaces of the eyeglass lens.
Please make us aware of any unusual work or leisure visual requirements. We can tailor the perfect lens for all your visual needs.
