Lens Options

Eyeglass lenses look simple, but can be quite complex. You can trust our opticians to provide you with the best guidance on the latest and best technology in thin lightweight lenses, multifocal designs and lens coatings. Buying eyewear can be a very confusing and an overwhelming challenge. At Aggieland spectacles we try to simplify this process by educating you about the lenses available for your prescription. We explain why one option may be better than another, but ultimately let you make the decision based on the information you are provided. No high pressure sales, just a friendly staff ready to help make the complex world of lens options understandable.

  • Progressive Lenses (No Line Bifocals)

  • Photochromatic Lenses

  • High Index for Thin and Light Weight

  • Polycarbonate or Trivex for Durability and Safety

  • Anti-Reflective and Scratch Resistant Coatings

Normal lenses often create glare, reflections, and “ghost images.” Now that can be eliminated with an anti-reflective coating.

What we see is a result of light being sensed by our eyes. With normal glasses, much of the light reflects off the lenses. This produces glare. It also reduces the wearer’s visual acuity. In other words, the light reflections are a cosmetic and visual problem.

Anti-reflective coatings increase light transmission through the lenses to 99.5%. It makes it easier to see and easier for others to see you. These coatings are especially useful for those viewing computer screens and driving at night.

If you have hard resin lenses (standard plastic of high index lenses) you should consider getting a scratch resistant coating. Resins and plastics are more susceptible to scratches than glass. Scratches damage the cosmetic look of the lenses as well as their performance. With a scratch resistant coating, you don’t have to worry so much about minor scratches on your lenses.

Another advantage of scratch resistant coatings is that our coatings come with a 2 year warranty! They are a great investment to prevent minor scratches. However, it is important to remember that scratch resistant does not mean scratch-proof. All lenses are susceptible to scratches.
