Lens Designs

No two eyes are the same, so no two lenses should be either.  At Jarvis Vision Center we take a personalized approach to selecting the best lens to meet your needs.

Single Vision Lenses  Lenses with one prescription throughout the lens.

Digital Single Vision Lenses – Digitally surfaces lenses that minimize thickness and maximize clarity towards the outer edges of the lens.  Recommended for high prescriptions.

Variable Focus Lenses – Specialty lenses are designed for a single vision prescriptions in the top of the lens and provide additional power in the reading portion of the lens for patients who spend time on digital devices and computers.  Intended to relax the strain on the eyes from switching between near and far distance often.

Lined Bifocal or Trifocal – Lenses divided by a visible line into 2 or 3 distinct viewing areas to give clear vision at multiple distances.

Conventional Progressive Lenses – Progressive lenses allow multiple focal distances to be incorporated into one lens with no visible lines separating these areas, providing uninterrupted clarity through the lens.

Digital Progressive Lenses – A special type of progressive lens that offers wider, clearer fields of vision by using more sophisticated lens design and construction.  These premium lenses help to reduce distortion and make vision more natural.  Recommended for first-time progressive wearers, or those who have struggle with progressives in the past due to “swim” or distortion.

At Jarvis Vision Center, our focus is YOU!  We want to ensure that you are happy with your glasses and that your vision is clear.  We offer training for first-time progressive wearers at the time of pick up, along with free adjustments any time.   We proudly offer a generous selection of Hoya lens designs because we understand that all eyes are different and we want your experience with your new lenses to be perfect.  Our doctors and opticians will work with you personally to select and design the perfect lenses for your lifestyle and prescription.

 

Materials & Thickness

Standard Plastic – Also called CR-39, plastic lenses offer quality optics and 50% UV protection.

Polycarbonate – Thinner and lighter than plastic lenses, poly offers 100% UV protection and is up to 10 times more impact-resistant than plastic, making it great for children, safety and active lifestyles. Polycarbonate material is certified for use in safety glasses due to its durability.

Trivex – The lightest weight material on the market, Trivex (also called Phoenix) provides the optimum combination of visual clarity, durability, and comfort for prescriptions.  Trivex is also certified for safety glasses due to its durability, but provides better optics and less distortion than polycarbonate.  It also provides 100% UV protection. Recommended for high plus prescriptions.

High Index – This material is designed to minimize lens thickness and optimize optics for high minus prescriptions.  Offers 100% UV protection.

Our doctors and optical staff will work with you personally to select the perfect lens material for your lifestyle and prescription.

Non-Glare & Scratch Resistance

Anti-Reflective Coatings are a multi-layer coating that eliminates reflections from the lens surface and increases light transmission, providing better vision for night driving and more comfortable vision for reading and computer use.

Premium – This no-glare provides water resistance and a scratch resistance coating on the front of the lens. Premium also comes with a 1 year/1 time replacement scratch warranty on for the lenses.

Hi-Vision – Features “ViewProtect” technology which is a slicking agent on the outside of the lens that makes it very easy to clean.  This non-glare is smudge and scratch resistant, and comes with a 2 year/2 time warranty against scratches.

Super Hi-Vision – Features “ViewProtect” easy-to-clean technology, high quality scratch resistance, premium smudge and dirt resistance, and a 2 year unlimited warranty against scratches.

EX3 – This superior anti-reflection coating features unmatched scratch protection — more scratch resistant than glass — along with ViewProtect easy-to-clean slicking agent, extreme glare reduction, and a 2 year unlimited warranty against scratches.  This no-glare is perfect for anyone who struggles with night-driving due to the glare from oncoming traffic.

Recharge – Our only blue-light filtering anti-reflective coating, Recharge offers the same benefits as EX3, but is intended for those who spend long hours on the computer, under florescent or LED lighting, or in front of any digital device.  These lenses are contrast-enhancing, provide unmatched scratch resistance (better than glass), ViewProtect easy-to-clean surfacing, and the same glare reduction as EX3.  Recharge comes with a 2 year unlimited warranty against scratching.

Sun wear

Sunglasses can prevent sun damage to your eyes, improve your vision, and make a unique fashion statement.  Our office offers sunglass frames from Maui Jim, Costa, Oakley, WileyX, and more.  Sunglasses are available in prescription and non-prescription and offer both UVA and UVB protection.

Polarized Lenses – Feature an invisible grid built into the interior of the lenses that targets and reduces glare that enters your eye from severe angles.  This is particularly effective in reducing the glare from oncoming traffic or when out on the water on sunny days.  Polarized lenses are 100% UV protective and often come with a no-glare lens that helps to increase scratch resistance.  Polarized lenses come in a variety of colors, shades, and can be mirror coated, as well.

Tinted Lenses – Tinting is a simple darkening of the lenses that reduces the amount of light that gets into your eyes.  Tinted lenses do not offer any UV protection naturally, but that can be changed depending on the material the lens is made from.  Tinted lenses often come with a no-glare property to increase scratch resistance.  Tinted lenses come in a variety of colors, shades, and can be mirror coated, as well.

Photochromic Lenses – This product is built into clear lenses and tints when exposed to UV light.  It provides UV and Blue Light protection, which helps to reduce eye-strain.  Photochromic lenses come in a variety of colors.  Not all photochromic lenses will tint behind the windshield of a car due to the UV filter built in to it, but there are options available that are more responsive and will darken in the car.

Our opticians and doctors will work with your personally to ensure you are fitted with the perfect sun protection eyewear for you.
