Eyeglass Lenses in Carmel Valley

Optometry office in Carmel Valley

There are many different types of eyeglass lenses available at our Optometry office in Carmel Valley. What is best for one patient may not be best for another. The best lenses for you will be based on many factors. When you come to Optometry Cabana, our professionals will ensure you get the lenses that will suit your needs.

Some of the many types of lenses we offer at our Optometry office in Carmel Valley are: progressives, high index plastic, polycarbonate, trivex aspheric, and photochromic. The right lens type for you needs to be based on your individual needs and situation. High Index Plastic eyeglass lenses and aspheric would be good if you seek a flatter and slimmer lens surface and look. They are both a lot flatter and thinner than most of the lenses. If you have more than one vision problem but don’t like visible lines, then progressive lenses may be a great option for you. Progressive lenses permit a progression of many lens powers just like bifocals and trifocals but minus the noticeable lines that some people dislike. Progressives are terrific because they enable the patient to look in all directions and see clearly. They allow the patient to look down to read, look ahead to view objects within short distances clearly and to look straight ahead and see objects across the room clearly. If safety is your main concern, then Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses are two very good options. Polycarbonate lenses are very light-weight, are impact-resistant and are considered to be the standard lenses for safety. Polycarbonate lenses provide UV protection and are used to make children’s eyewear, sports eyewear and safety goggles. Trivex lenses also provide UV protection and are also lightweight, thin and more impact-resistant than regular glasses. If light sensitivity is a problem for you then Photochromic lenses are a very good choice. They will automatically darken when they’re worn outside and are exposed to sunlight.
