Chan Eye Care, PLLC: Eyeglasses
As your local full-service eye and vision care provider, Chan Eye Care, PLLC will help you find prescription lenses that meet your exact lifestyle and vision correction needs. We also carry a large selection of frames.
- Single vision – Single vision lenses are the most affordable and most commonly prescribed lenses. They have the same focal power over the whole lens, meaning they provide visual correction for near or far distances, not both.
- Bifocal and multifocal – These lenses have two or more distinct optical powers, which allows the user to see clearly at all distances. They are usually prescribed to older patients who have lost the ability to naturally change the focus of their eyes.
- Progressive – Sometimes called “no-line bifocals”, progressive lenses also have different optical powers to correct vision at all distances. The difference is that progressive lenses have a smooth transition between the parts with different focal lengths.
- CR-39 lenses – The most basic lens material, CR-39 has optical qualities nearly as good as glass, but is half as heavy and far less likely to shatter. It is also inexpensive to manufacture.
- Polycarbonate – Polycarbonate is usually recommended for children’s eyewear, sports eyewear, and safety glasses. It is up to 10 times more impact-resistant than CR-39 lenses.
- Trivex – Like polycarbonate lenses, Trivex lenses are thin, lightweight, impact-resistant, and UV-blocking; however, Trivex lenses tend to produce sharper central and peripheral vision.
- High-index – High-index lenses are thinner and more lightweight than CR-39 lenses with the same prescription power. They are recommended for patients with strong prescriptions for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
- Photochromic – Photochromic lenses are clear when indoors, but darken automatically when exposed to UV and high-energy visible (HEV) rays.
- Polarized – Polarized lenses block the intense glare reflected from flat surfaces like water, flat roads, and ice. They are popular among boating and fishing enthusiasts.
