Prescription Lenses

Protecting your eyesight is important. Critical, really, if you want to be able to enjoy your life over the long haul. Luckily, we live in the modern age and have prescription glasses to help compensate for failing eyesight. Not only does this keep your eyesight sharp, it helps prevent the headaches and eye strain associated with constant squinting. Whether or not you already wear prescription lenses, it’s important to understand the ins and outs of lens types, examinations and how to pick the right ones.

Types of Prescription Lenses

Many types of prescription lenses exist, helping you get the proper fit for your eyeglasses. Materials include:

  • Polycarbonate, which highly impacts resistant
  • Trivex, which is lightweight and thin
  • High-index plastic, which enables strong prescriptions with significantly thinner glass that in ages past
  • Aspheric, which are thinner and flatter, enabling a more attractive profile

Lens Coatings and Tints

You also have options for prescription sunglasses. Polarized lenses are perfect for a lot of outdoor activity in bright conditions since they block out glare – especially from reflective surfaces such as water. Photochromic sunglasses are the type that goes from clear to dark depending on conditions. If you are looking for prescription lenses, talk to an eye doctor about which one might work best for you.

You can also get coatings on your glasses to make them scratch-resistant and reduce fogging.

Why You Need a Prescription Lens Eye Exam from an Optometrist

It’s important when you’re looking for prescription lenses, to get an eye exam from a qualified optometrist. Picking the right lenses involves a lot of factors, including your exact prescription – which will come from your eye exam – the thickness of the lens and shape of the glasses, tints, and coatings, and more. You should also talk through the material you want for your lenses, which will be heavily informed by your optometrist’s opinion.
