What are your lenses made of?
We use the highest quality lens materials:
- CR-39 Plus: Our standard high-clarity CR-39 Plus lenses include no-glare, scratch-resistant coatings with 100% UV protection. Suitable for most glasses wearers but not recommended for semi-rimless and rimless frame styles. If you play sports or are buying for a child, we recommend upgrading to our polycarbonate lenses for high-impact resistance.
- Polycarbonate: Recommended for high-impact protection, playing sports or for children. Our high quality polycarbonate lenses include no-glare and scratch-resistant treatments of standard CR-39, plus UV protection.
- Ultra Lightweight High Index: Recommended for high prescriptions, which are typically outside the range of -3.00 to +2.00. High index lenses ensure you get the thinnest lens with high tensile strength for maximum durability. These also include no-glare and scratch-resistant treatments, plus UV protection.
Do you sell prescription sunglasses?

Do you sell Prizm prescription lenses?

What is AR lens treatment?
This is a lens treatment that is applied to the surface of glasses lenses that reduces glare and reflections. This treatment improves vision by allowing more light to reach your eye. It also improves the look of your glasses by eliminating the reflection on your lenses so that people can see your eyes.
We also offer CleanShield™ Elite No Glare as a lens upgrade. This premium anti-glare treatment is super hydrophobic—meaning you’ll have less smudging, easier lens cleaning and a prolonged life of your lenses. This treatment reduces glare so much, your friends will do double takes to see if you have lenses at all.

Just like ordinary clear lenses, original Transitions® lenses are clear when indoors and at night. Once outdoors, and depending on the amount of UV light present, these lenses change automatically to become darker. Transitions® is the #1 eyecare-professional recommended photochromic lens worldwide
