At Spare Pair Vision Center, we’re dedicated to your best interests, and that means having a variety of eyeglass lenses to suit your needs and preferences. Among them are high index plastic, progressives, polycarbonate, aspheric, trivex, and photochromic.
High index plastic give you the benefit of having your strong prescription put into a pair of thinner lenses. With standard lenses, that same prescription would require a thick set of lenses, which would then prevent you from selecting frames that are not of the same thickness. We want you to have your full choice of our Lakewood eyeglasses. Progressive lenses are multifocal, which is ideal for you if you have both nearsightedness and farsightedness, either with or without astigmatism. Regular bifocals improve your vision far away and up close, but the middle range is not significantly affected. Progressives shore up that vital area between far away and nearby. In addition, they eliminate the unsightly line on bifocals. If you are concerned about your lenses becoming scratches or broken, choose polycarbonate for use with our Lakewood eyeglasses. And with aspheric, you get the same advantages as you do with high index, in terms of putting a stronger prescription in a thinner set of lenses and frames. But aspheric also give you consistent width throughout the lens, which results in a more natural vision. Trivex are resistant to scratches and will not break easily. They are lightweight and give you sharper vision than polycarbonate lenses do. And if you want lenses that adjust to lighting, both indoors and outdoors, depend on photochromic, which unlike prescription sunglasses, can be worn indoors without any loss of clarity.
