Insurance plans include:
- EyeMed Vision Care (Aetna Vision)
- Davis Vision
- National Vision administrators
- BCBS/ NCAS
- Single vision lenses – single distance focal point, like reading only
- Bifocals, Trifocals, Progressive lenses (No-Line Bifocals) – address the need of multiple focal points, but Progressive lenses do this in a way more natural and like normal vision
- Computer Lenses – specifically designed for prolonged use on the computer, aids in strain and fatigue associated with computer use
- High definition lenses – provide the most clarity edge to edge available given the limitations of a prescription and frame choice, and are available in multiple lens designs.
- Many choices exist in lens material options. Because of this, patients experience greater improvement in clarity, thickness, and weight then in the past.
- The recommendations on lens material will be based upon several factors including: prescription, frame choice, and activities glasses will be worn during.
- Materials include: CR-39 plastic, mid and high index plastic, polycarbonate, and new variations like Trivex.
- Many surface treatments are available that can assist with your vision needs, and our trained Opticians are ready to help explain the benefits of these options.
- Advancements in treatments are not uncommon, with a major area of growth in Anti-Reflective Coatings. These coatings assist with white light glare, helping you look and see better in all lighting conditions. Premium AR coatings are built into your lenses, with a two-sided scratch coat, so you don’t see the imperfections that occurred in standard glare coats of the past.
- Many other options exist, including: UV protection, Scratch Coatings, and Edge Treatments.
- Solid and gradient tints are available for those seeking color on their lenses in all conditions, with a variety of colors and options from dark sunglass shades to light fashionable shades.
- Polarized lens options are the best for bright light use, typically outside, achieved in part by the filters in the lens designed to reduce this type of glare.
- One of the most exciting tint options, now in its seventh generation, is Transitions® photochromic technology. These lenses change from light to dark based on the amount of sunlight, and are a convenient option for people who don’t want the hassle of multiple pairs of glasses. Please scroll down for a demonstration link to this technology and to learn more about other Transitions® designs.
