Lenses

The proper lens is the foundation of Taylor Eye Wear.

Lens Treatment Options

Anti-reflective coatings
Anti-reflective or AR lenses, reduce eye fatigue especially when viewing computer screens, working under fluorescent lighting, and driving at night.

UV protection
Ultraviolet (UV) sunrays may contribute to the forming of cataracts and macular degeneration. Lenses with UV protection are like putting sunscreen on your eyes! High-index and high-impact resistant lenses provide UV protection inherently in the lens material while plastic lenses may require a UV coating.

Scratch-resistance coatings
This coating protects lenses from everyday wear-and-tear. Some materials, such as high-impact resistant, high-index, and some plastic lenses include scratch protection.

Photochromic lenses
Photochromic lenses darken and lighten according to light exposure. Photochromic lenses are available in most all lens materials and lens designs.

Polarized lenses 
For exposure to bright lights outdoors, polarized lenses eliminate glare and ease eye stress from the sun. Intense sunlight glare from water, sand, snow, windows, vehicles, and buildings is virtually eliminated with polarized lenses, and they come in several color and density options.

Mirrored lenses
For reflective lenses that make the eye virtually invisible to viewers, mirrored lenses are “cool” while they protect from heat and glare. Mirrors come in a variety of colors.

Tinted lenses 
Lenses can be tinted from light to very dark, solid or gradient. Tints are available in a spectrum of colors.

Lens Materials

Plastic
Lighter than glass lenses and can be tinted to almost any color and shade.

High-index
For patients with strong prescriptions who need a thinner lens profile, high-index material is cosmetically appealing, lighter, and provides better vision performance than thick “soda bottle glasses”.

Trivex
This revolutionary new lens material delivers the unique combination of crisp, clear vision, ultra-lightweight comfort, strength, and protection. Rimless lenses made from Trivex material are extremely durable and tough enough to withstand the stress associated with rimless eyewear.

Sports & Safety Lenses
When work, hobbies, or recreation require visual protection and performance, special lenses or goggles are available for industrial and occupational purposes, computer viewing, and sports activities such as snow and water skiing, hunting and sport shooting, basketball, football, and other activities.

Lens Designs

Single Vision
These lenses have a uniform focal power from top to bottom and correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these disorders. This multi-purpose lens is available in all materials.

Multifocals (Bifocals and Trifocals)
Multifocal lenses have more than one focus in a single lens to correct both distance and near vision.

No-line progressives
Another type of multifocal lens, progressive no-lines has no visible dividing line as the focus changes from top to bottom. They have the appearance of single vision glasses offering correction for far, intermediate, and near vision in one lens. Progressives are available in all lens materials.

Aspheric
This lens design offers edge-to-edge visual clarity meaning that as the eyes move, vision will not blur toward the edge of the lenses. Aspheric lenses are available in single vision, bifocal, and progressive-addition designs.
