We can make so much about the design features of frames these days that it’s easy to overlook the most important factors about eyewear lenses.

Always choose anti-reflective coating for your lenses. This clear coating eliminates annoying reflections, improves night vision and enables people to see your eyes more clearly.

For thinner, lighter, more attractive lenses, choose polycarbonate or high-index plastic lenses with an aspheric design.

Photochromic lenses that automatically darken in sunlight are a great choice if you spend time outdoors and don’t want to always carry a pair of sunglasses with you.

If you’re over age 40, why advertise your age with bifocals or trifocals? Line-free progressive lenses provide clear vision at all distances and give older adults a more youthful appearance.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
