Finding the right lenses can be confusing, but it doesn't have to be. The staff at Texas State Optical of Lufkin will help you choose from a huge selection of frames so that you get the one that best meets your needs.
Thin and light high-index lenses
Many patients who are extremely nearsighted or farsighted are enjoying the benefits of new and advanced high-index lenses made with flatter curves. Their precision designs reduce unwanted magnification and peripheral errors. The flatter curves decrease the center's thickness and reduce lens volume and weight.
Transition lenses from light to dark
Transition "sun-sensitive" lenses change naturally from light to dark automatically. They are made in plastic polycarbonate of high index materials. They are lighter in weight than the traditional photogrey glass lenses; therefore, they are more comfortable. These lenses are available with a 2-year scratch WARRANTY upon request.
Progressive "no-line" lenses
If you have more than one vision problem, you're likely to need multi-focal lenses. Traditionally, bifocals offer near and distance vision, while trifocals are designed for near, mid-range, and distance vision. Both of these types of lenses have lines that separate the range of vision. The progressive lens makes bifocals and trifocals a thing of the past.
These lenses, also called "no line bifocals," duplicate the natural movement of your eyes giving you a full range of focus so that you can see clearly and comfortably at all distances, including those in-between areas that bifocals miss. Good candidates are people in their early 40s just beginning to have a problem with seeing close-up, along with people who want an alternative to switching between reading and distance glasses.
Has cosmetic advantages and reduces glare. Your vision is better because the coating eliminates distracting reflections that occur, particularly with night driving.
A good way to preserve your lens. This coating hardens the surface of your lens. It's available in a 1-year or 2-year WARRANTY, depending on the lens. This coating keeps lenses cleaner because the surface is much smoother.
The lenses typically give the wearer's vision a brown or gray tint. The mirror coating decreases the amount of light passing through the tinted lens by a further 10–60%, making it especially useful for conditions of sand, water, snow, and higher altitudes. Mirrored sunglasses are one-way mirrors.
