Eyeglasses and Sunglasses

UV radiation increases the chances of blinding eye conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) and cataracts. Wearing adequate UV protecting eyewear is key in preserving your vision.
Limits the scratches that may occur on your lenses from everyday use and optimizes the clarity of your vision through your lenses. Plastic lenses are prone to scratching without the presence of a scratch resistant coating. As a result, all our lenses come with scratch resistance.
Also known as an anti-glare coating, this coating will enhance your vision by reducing glare from light sources such oncoming traffic and digital screens. It will improve night vision, while reducing eyestrain. It will also reduce the reflection off your lenses, giving you a more professional and sophisticated look!
These are often known as transitions. This coating allows the lens to darken when outside in the sun, and reverse when indoors, looking like an ordinary clear lens. The transition from light to dark is very quick and allows your ordinary pair of glasses to serve the purpose of sunglasses as well. However, it should be noted that these will not darken when driving since the windshield will block the UV radiation!
Photochromic (Transitions) Lens
Blue blocking reflective coating helps reduce the blue rays that are emitted by digital screens including our mobile phones, iPADs, laptops and computers. Recent studies have shown that excessive exposure to blue light (especially before bed) can negatively impact sleep cycles, as well as cause eye fatigue. If you spend a lot of time in front of digital screens in a day, this coating may help improve your visual comfort. Come speak to our team to assess whether blue light protection will serve your needs.
Blue Light Protection
This coating helps reduce the fogging of our lenses that frequently occurs on winter days. It has become extremely prevalent with the masks that are being worn as a result of the COVID pandemic.
