Choosing the right lenses for your glasses may seem overwhelming, but it's all about finding the perfect fit for your vision needs and lifestyle . With numerous lens types, sizes, and coatings available, you can customize your glasses to suit your preferences. Let's explore which lenses are best for you.

How to Choose Glasses Lenses

After finding frames you love, it's time to choose lenses. Consider the following steps to make the right decision:

1. Enter your prescription

Determine whether you require single vision lenses for near or far distance correction, or multifocal lenses for near, intermediate, and far distance correction.

2. Choose your lens usage

Select an option that suits your lifestyle. Common choices include standard lenses, multifocal lenses, lenses with blue light protection, sunglasses lenses, and Transitions® lenses.

3. Choose your lens index

Pick a lens based on thickness, features, and price that suits your prescription and budget. Higher prescriptions often require high index lenses, while lower prescriptions can work with either high index or low index lenses.

4. Upgrade (if you want to!)

Consider adding lens coatings for additional features and protection, such as Anti-fog Lenses or C Shield, which has anti-reflection and anti-smudge properties.

Protection from Harmful Light (Including Blue Light)

If you're concerned about protecting your eyes from harmful light, including blue light, consider the following options:

For everyday, all-around protection: BlueReflect™ Lenses

These lenses protect your eyes from dangerous UV exposure and harmful blue light. They are ideal for casual screen time and have a more subtle look compared to other blue light filtering lenses.

For heavy screen time protection: BlueReflect Plus™ Lenses

Designed for people who spend long hours on multiple screens, these lenses provide optimal protection from harmful blue light and UV exposure. They have a slight yellow tinge and blue reflection on the front of the lens.

Age 40+ and Need Multifocals

Multifocal lenses are perfect for individuals aged 40 and above who require near, intermediate, and distance vision correction. Here are some options:

For distance, intermediate, and near correction (with no visible line): Progressives

These modern multifocal lenses correct near, intermediate, and far vision needs without a visible line on the lens. They offer a subtle look.

For distance, middle, and near correction and a wider vision field (with no visible line): Premium progressives

The most advanced progressive lenses, these provide a wider vision field than regular progressives and bifocals. They offer near, middle, and far vision correction and have no visible line on the lens.

For near and middle vision with blue light protection: DualView BlueReflect™ Progressives

Equipped with blue light filtering technology, these specialty computer progressive lenses have a larger intermediate vision field. They are optimized for computer and reading distance.

For distance and near vision correction (with a visible line): Bifocals

Traditional multifocal lenses, bifocals are recommended if you require near and far distance correction but not intermediate distance correction. They have a noticeable line across the middle of the lenses.

Spending a Lot of Time Outdoors

If you spend a significant amount of time outdoors, you'll want lenses that protect your eyes and enhance your vision. Consider the following options:

For glasses and sunglasses in one: Transitions® lenses

Transitions® lenses automatically darken based on UV exposure, providing optimal UV protection. They offer added comfort for those sensitive to light and are recommended for outdoor activities. However, they do not darken inside a vehicle, so it's advisable to have a spare pair of sunglasses for driving in bright conditions.

For protection from harmful blue light and UV: BlueReflect™ or BlueReflect Plus™ Lenses

These lenses offer full UV protection and protect your eyes from harmful blue light emitted by the sun and digital screens. While they have an anti-reflective coating, they are not tinted. Hence, sunglasses are still recommended for comfort and optimal vision in bright conditions.

For protection from smudges, fog, glare, and water: C Shield lens coating

The C Shield lens coating is anti-static, anti-reflection, smudge-repellent, water-repellent, and scratch-resistant. It provides extended durability and can be added to most lens types.

Best Sunglasses Lenses

When choosing sunglasses, opt for lenses with maximum UV protection. Here are some options that can be tailored to your lifestyle and style:

For sporty, active, outdoorsy types: Polarized sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses offer maximum UV protection and filter out reflective glare while preserving color and clarity. They are ideal for outdoor sports and water activities and are available in various sunglasses tints.

For everyday UV protection to match your style and budget: Classic sunglasses

Classic sunglasses provide optimal UV protection and come in various tints to suit your style and lifestyle. Choose from gradient tints, mirror tints, or solid tints based on your preferences. Classic sunglasses are available in different price ranges.

For the same frame with different tints: Sun clips

Sun clips offer full UV protection and come in different tints to suit your mood and style. They allow you to easily change your look whenever you want.
