With the vast selection of prescription lens options and treatments, lenses are now made thinner and lighter than ever before. Learn about polycarbonate lenses.


To further protect your eyes and your safety glasses, we offer specialized lens coatings that can be added to your lenses.


If you have eye sensitivity or work both indoors and outdoors throughout the day, you may want to use photochromatic, tinted or polarized lenses.

Polycarbonate Lenses

Polycarbonate lenses, glass lenses and plastic lenses are the primary options for prescription safety glasses. Even though glass and plastic lenses are allowed according to OSHA regulations, polycarbonate are a much better choice for protection and comfort.

Why Choose Polycarbonate Lenses?

Polycarbonate lenses are not your traditional plastic lens. They are thinner and lighter to help improve the comfort of your glasses. They also give 100% UV protection and they are up to 10 times more shatter and impact-resistant. We highly recommend polycarbonate lenses for safety glasses, sports eyewear and children. The lightweight, comfort, UV protection and impact resistance makes polycarbonate lenses the obvious choice.

Plastic Lenses

Plastic lenses allow excellent compatibility with scratch-resistant coating, anti-reflective coating and tinting applications.

Glass Lenses

Glass lenses are highly scratch resistant and less susceptible to extreme temperatures.

Lens Coatings

Lens coatings can enhance the performance, durability and visibility of your eyewear. The primary lens coatings and treatments available include Ultraviolet, Scratch-Resistant and Anti-Reflective coatings.

Ultraviolet Coating

Ultraviolet rays can not only damage your skin, they can also damage your eyes. An ultraviolet coating on your eyeglass lenses will block the UV rays from damaging your eyes. This can help prevent cataracts, cancer of the skin around the eyes, and long-term eye damage, such as macular degeneration of the retina.

Scratch-Resistant Coating

Although no lens is completely scratch proof, we can add a scratch resistant coating to reduce the potential scratches on your lenses. We also recommend that while not wearing your eyewear, you keep them safe in a cushioned case and also clean the lenses with a microfiber cloth and cleaning solution. To prevent scratching while cleaning, always wet the lens before wiping, and never use paper products.

Anti-Reflective Coating

An anti-reflective coating can also be added to your lenses to help eliminate reflections from lighting, computer screens, water and other reflective materials. An anti-reflective coating can help make vision through your glasses clearer, sharper and better at night, as well as help reduce eyestrain and eye fatigue issues. We offer the best anti reflective coating in the industry which comes with a two year warranty.

Lens Shading

If you have eye sensitivity or work both indoors and outdoors throughout the day, you may want to use photochromatic, tinted or polarized lenses.

Photochromic Lenses

Photochromic lenses will lighten and darken depending on the availability of ultraviolet light. Photochromic lenses are best for comfort and are not a substitute for safety sunglasses. Direct sunlight and UV rays trigger the photocromic lens to get dark, so they will not change in the car, since all windshields come with a UV blocker.

Tinted Lenses

A colored tint will permanently tint the lenses of your glasses. Plastic, polycarbonate, high index, and Trivex lenses can be tinted to practically any color you want, although a lighter tint is primarily to reduce glare form fluorescent lighting, while a darker tint is for use in sunglasses.

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses will reduce glare through special polarized filters and also provide maximum UV protection. Polarized lenses are the ultimate in visual clarity and depth perception when faced with reflective materials such as sun, water, vehicles and snow.

Lens Vision Type

Single Vision

Single vision lenses are prescribed for one field of vision. Single vision lenses have the same prescription strength throughout the whole lens and can either be used for correcting distance or near vision.


A bifocal lens is used for distance and near vision. The upper portion of the lens will convey the distance prescription, while a lower window conveys the reading portion.


Trifocal is used for distance and near vision, but it also has an intermediate portion, used for computer work, or anything else done at an arm’s length.


Progressive lenses are the most functional of the lenses. Progressive lenses convey continuous vision without the use of traditional windows. This lens offers a smooth transition from distance, to intermediate, to near, without any visual jumps or tell-tale lines.
