What Types of Lenses Are Available?
As technology advances so, too, do eyeglass lenses. Today, most eyeglasses are made of high-tech plastics that are thinner, lighter, ultraviolet protective, and more scratch-resistant than older, common plastic lenses.
- Polycarbonate: These eyeglass lenses are impact and scratch resistant and are a good choice for all children, active people, and risky work environments.
- Transitions: These lenses change from clear to tinted when exposed to sunlight, often eliminating the need for prescription sunglasses.
- High index: Designed for people who require strong prescriptions, these eyeglass lenses are lighter and thinner than the standard, thick “coke bottle” lenses that may otherwise be needed.
- Aspheric lenses: These eyeglass lenses are unlike typical lenses, which are spherical in shape. Aspheric lenses are made up of differing degrees of curvature over its surface, which allows the lens to be thinner and flatter than other lenses.
What Are Multi-focal Lenses?
People who have more than one vision problem (for example, have difficulty seeing both far away and up close) often need eyeglasses with multi-focal lenses. Multi-focals (such as bifocals, trifocals, or progressives) contain two or more vision-correcting prescriptions. Today’s latest technology multi-focals offer seamless vision at all distances so that only you and the doctor will know what you’re wearing!

How Should You Care for Your Eyeglasses?
* Always store eyeglasses in a clean, dry place away from potential damage. DON’T LEAVE THEM IN YOUR CAR! The heat can destroy them.
* Clean your eyeglasses with water and a non-lint cloth, as necessary, to keep them spot free and prevent distorted vision.
* See Dr. Sheiner annually to check your eyeglass prescription. Remember, eyeglasses can correct most common vision problems simply, without surgery, eye drops or fuss.
