Below is a brief description of the different type of lenses on the market:
- Plastic Lenses (CR39) Polymer: Is a material used to make the lens. It is inexpensive, with excellent optical quality. It however, is more prone to being scratched, is thicker and heavier than some of the other lens material on the market. It also does not block UV light without a special coating.
- Polycarbonate lens Polymer: Is a material used to make the lens. It is medium priced with great impact resistance, 30% lighter and thinner than plastic lenses. It also offer UV protection. The lens requires anti reflective coating and may require anti scratch resistance coating. Can also cause peripheral distortion in high prescriptions.
- High Index Lens Polymers: Are materials used to make the lens. They are medium to high priced lenses which are significantly thinner and lighter than plastic and thinner than polycarbonate. May need scratch resistant coating and may cause peripheral distortion.
- Spherical Cut lenses: Has to do with the shape of the manufactured lens. Spherical lenses have the same curve across all the lens. It is found in most traditional lens and delivers excellent value for the price. In very high prescriptions, spherical cut lenses can increase the thickness of the edge of the lens.
- Aspherical Cut Lenses: Has to do with the shape of the manufactured lens. The surface of the lens has a different curve across the lens. This can decrease the thickness of the edge of the lens, but increases the price. It is a good option for high prescriptions.
- Free form (Digitally Cut Lenses): Is a highly customized aspheric lens. The process involves customizing your prescription to achieve the thinnest , lightest possible lenses as well as providing the widest field of vision. Free form manufactured lenses combine advanced mathematical formulas, with software technology and integrated surfacing machinery.
